Beth, in response to your follow up question, I checked all of the a.k.a.'s on the first page of the October 12 SDN List and they were all listed later in the the list as a first listed name. A search for each first listed name would appear to be a complete search. A word of caution,if you are looking for a name that is hypenated (-) or contains an underscore (_) make sure you are reviewing all sections of the list which contain the letters in the name. At some points the list seems to not be in alphabetical order (see pages 4-6).
Brenda, the intent of the OFAC list is to block certain transactions and seize assets of existing accounts. Searches of completed cashier's check transactions, ACH and outgoing wire transfers are not necessary. If the funds were wired into an currenting existing account, a search of your current records should reveal the account. Of course all future transactions should be checked on an ongoing basis.
