USA Patriot Act

Please read this notice about the USA Patriot Act (the “Act”) carefully. It provides information about the identity verification practices of World Class Capital Corporation, WCC, World Class Capital and its subsidiaries, the “World Class CapitalEntities”, (collectively referred to as “we” and “our”), which are affiliates under common control.

Due to the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, and the passage of the Act, we must go beyond simply asking for information from a prospective customer. The Act requires all financial institutions to obtain, verify, and record information that identifies each person who opens an account. The Act was passed into law to help the government fight the funding of terrorism and money laundering activities.

We must, among other things, obtain, verify, and record information that identifies each prospective customer who wishes to open an account, with exceptions for certain types of accounts. We must ask for certain information, and must also verify the information provided through the use of available data and/or documents. We are also required by the Act to monitor and report to the government suspicious activity in customers’ accounts.

To comply with the Act, we take many steps to verify the identity of persons opening new accounts, including:

  • Verifying the identity of prospective customers.
  • Consulting applicable government agency lists of known or suspected criminals, terrorists and terrorist organizations to check if someone trying to open or maintain an account is on any such list.
  • Conducting, in certain circumstances, additional due diligence when accounts are opened, including requesting information about the source of funds deposited into such accounts.

If we do not receive requested information to verify the identity of a prospective customer, we will be unable to open an account.

We hope you will support our efforts to comply with the Act and deny terrorists and money launderers access to America’s financial system. If you have any questions, please call our Customer Service Department at (800) 619-6591.
