 FinCEN  not only fined the owner of a Michigan MSB*, now closed, $12,000, for a total lack of AML/CFT on customers who sent money to Yemen, but it barred him from ever being involved, in any way, in any entity that it defines as a financial institution, ever again. That's pretty strong, but look at what he allowed to occur at his company:

(1) Sending dollar amounts inconsistent with family support payments.
(2) Large amounts sent within a short period of time.
(3) Large dollar amounts, sent without any apparent business or lawful purpose.
(4) Transactions sent to multiple beneficiaries in different locatiobs in yemen.
(5) Multiple sends, within one business day, below the recordkeeping threshold.

SAR filings ? Forget about it. There was ZERO compliance. Will more financial professionals be forever barred from the industry, when they violate AML/CFT regulations ? We cannot say, but we will be watching.

  1. Testimony On How My Life was Transform through the help of a God-sent Lender..

    Hello everyone, I am Kathie Roper by name, am writing this Testimony because am really grateful for what Mason Diego did for me and my family, when I thought there was no hope he came and make my family feel alive again by lending us loan at a very low interest rate of 2%. Well I have been searching for a loan to settle my debts for the past three months all I met scammed and took my money until I finally met a God sent Lender. I never thought that there are still genuine loan lenders on the internet but to my greatest surprise i got my loan without wasting much time so if you are out there looking for a loan of any amount i would advise you to email Mr Diego via email: { } and be free of internet scams. thanks... Kathie Roper from California, USA.
