FinCEN POSTS INFO-SHARE FACT SHEET
updated 11/04/13 03:48 PM
New TIPs Also Published
The Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (FinCEN) has issued a fact sheet on Section 314(b) of the USA Patriot Act that credit unions should be aware of.

Section 314(b) provides financial institutions with the ability to share information with one another—under a safe harbor that offers protections from liability—in order to better identify and report potential money laundering or terrorist activities.
