OFAC

Answered by: 

Question: 
I am in the process of revising our teller procedures to include checking all non-customer transactions against the most current OFAC list. I am still not clear on the non-customer transactions that should be checked. Could you clarify that for me and also, cash and checks both? My understanding is that tellers need to check on the following: all negotiable instruments sold (cashiers checks, money orders, wires, bonds, travelers checks). What about non-customer cashing an on-us check?
Answer: 

If the customer who wrote the check is on the OFAC list, you will doubtless have to refuse payment. If the non-customer who wants to cash the check is on the OFAC list, you doubtless should retain the check, refuse to cash it, and contact OFAC ASAP.
