Bank Secrecy Act (BSA) Compliance for Lenders

Ready to register? Please select your credit union:

Loans are frequent tools for fraud, tax evasion, and terrorist financing. That’s why lenders should be just as fully trained as deposit account staff on how to recognize and properly respond to activities reportable under the Bank Secrecy Act. Get all the critical facts from credit union compliance expert Mary-Lou Heighes. You’ll learn the necessary procedures and reporting requirements that can protect your credit union and your members from money laundering activities and losses.

You’ll get the answers to these questions and more:

  • What types of loans are used for money laundering?
  • What “red flags” can help you detect fraud or money-laundering?
  • Must all borrowers’ names be run through your Member/Customer Identification Program (MIP/CIP) and OFAC, even guarantors and cosigners?
  • What should you do if you suspect loan fraud, identity theft, or money laundering?
  • What is the procedure for completing a Suspicious Activity Report (SAR)?

Be prepared when your examiners ask for proof of your Bank Secrecy Act training! You may choose to take our online review quiz on your BSA knowledge and receive a certificate of successful completion.
