Let’s face it, for many people credit scores are a mystery. Why does one consumer have a 700+ FICO with late payments and past collections when another consumer’s score, with clean payment history is 50 points lower? And why is the credit score we just pulled for a consumer so much different than the one they received this month from their credit card company? If you have these questions too you are not alone.
In this course we are going to dive as deep as we can in an hour and one half, to unravel the mystery behind the FICO credit score. The information provided is invaluable which every employee who works with credit reports and consumers should have.

Dealing with nonresident alien accountholders adds another layer of issues to account opening, maintenance, and reporting.
Since the USA PATRIOT Act, Customer Identification Program (CIP) law passed, opening these accounts and covering the required documentation and identification bases makes dealing with these accounts more challenging than ever.

This session will address the following questions about procedures and your bank: What does the law say about identifying nonresident aliens? What type of identification is being used around the country to open accounts? What are the proper procedures for W-8 reporting? What role does Office of Foreign Assets and Control (OFAC) play in your new accounts procedures? If these questions have not been answered to your satisfaction in your bank this session is a must.

The Gist: Financial Institutions that engage in transactions involving money generated by marijuana-related activity are subject to criminal liability for failure to identify or report financial transactions which implicate violations of the U.S. Controlled Substances Act (“CSA”).
However, there is real potential for community banks and credit unions to offer their services to marijuana businesses. This is because bigger national banks continue to close out the last of their existing cannabis-related accounts. Although your Institution would still take on risk by providing services - which, technically, would violate federal law - if you comply with the Cole Memo and FinCEN Guidance, then this could be a lucrative opportunity.
