I have a department that does nothing but monitor high risk accounts. We require site surveys on all new business accounts that are opened and a form that is completed by the officer completing the site survey.
We have created a Know Your Customer Log in the new accounts areas that lists all business accounts opened, whether they are new or existing and whether a site survey needs to be completed. The KYC Log and site surveys are submitted monthly to this department to make sure that follow-through is being completed.
The department gets copies of all large charge back items.
They review the Kiting suspect list daily, looking for even dollar deposits made frequently.
We have created a Watch List where all of this information is compiled and then it is reviewed by the BSA Committee that meets weekly. The Committee rates the accounts based on the information available.
The department also monitors uncollected funds daily.
This is in addition to the staff we have that monitors CTR's for quality assurance.
It is a department running on overwhelm some days. All I can say is good luck. It has taken more resources than we thought orginially.
