Customer Follow-Up and Verfication of Requests

Answered by: 

Question: 
For customer-initiated requests (auto debit setup, removal, name/address changes, due day changes, etc.), is there anything in the regs pertaining to follow-up letters that should be sent to the customer? Some banks send letters reiterating the request/changes made, whereas others don't.
Answer: 

You won't find anything in regulations specifically on this topic, but a lot of this is closely related to your bank's protection of customer financial information. After all, one of the goals of a fraudulent address change scheme is to obtain access to customer account information.

Verification of changes to these important pieces of customer information is a long-established control that is seeing a bit of a well-deserved renaissance.
