COMPLIANCE OFFICERS BEWARE ANY LOCAL MEDIA THAT YOU DO NOT KNOW

If you are a compliance officer who reviews local newspapers online, when seeking information on prospective bank clients during due diligence investigation, be very careful. Reports this week have confirmed that bogus websites, portraying fictional local newspapers, have appeared online.

Do not trust any of the articles on those sites, because they appear to be slanted to serve a political agenda. You may encounter favorable information about your subject that contains misinformation, disinformation, or misleading data.  In short, if you do not recognize the name of the newspaper from prior experience, and do not personally know it to be legitimate, ignore the information.
