Does anyone verify ACH transactions for suspicious activity and what do you use as a red flag?

I look for specific entities; Neteller, iGM-Pay, FirePay, as higher risk. I also try to separate out payroll and billpay transactions as lower risk.

You should also look for indicators of MSB activity, such as payments to Western Union or Travelers Express, and indicators of private ATM operation.

Do you do this manually?

No, through our AML monitoring software.
