Here is an excerpt from the letter:
"On Octover 26, 2001, the USA Patriot Act (the "Act") was passed requiring that financial institutions establish anti-money laundering (AML) programs.
In accordance with the ACT, Company XYZ, Inc. requests that each dealer confirm, in writing that they have adopted policies and procedures that meet the requirements imposed by the anti-money laundering requlations"
After the lawsuit that Mary Beth wrote about, it makes you hesitant to put anything into writing. Yes we have an AML policy, but not all the components of the new CIP have been approved by the board....it's not even in effect yet. This just seems to me that everyone is trying to cover themselves.
