SAR BulletinInformation drawn from the Suspicious Activity Reporting SystemIssue 3June 2001Suspicious ActivityRelated to PhoneCard BusinessesA review of Suspicious ActivityReports (SARs) filed with the TreasuryDepartment s Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (FinCEN) identified over 160 reports indicating suspicious financial activity related to businesses involved in phone card sales.Some of the companies or businessesinvolved in the reported activity offerother services such as check cashing,money orders, beepers, cellular phones,faxes, lottery tickets, and travel tickets.This activity has been observed byfinancial institutions in fourteen states,particularly in New York, New Jersey,Texas, California, and Florida.Businesses involved in phone cardsales routinely generate significantlegitimate cash flow. However, SARinformation reported by financial institutions characterizes the types of problematic transactions suggestive ofmoney laundering or other illicit financialactivity (large and unexplained cashflow increases, transactions structuredto stay below CTR reporting requirements, etc.) associated with illegitimateuse of these businesses. Additionally,law enforcement information indicatesthat phone cards are being used as amechanism to launder funds.The suspicious activity reported byfinancial institutions that may reflectillicit use of phone card businesses fallsinto the following categories:punusual deposit of funds into orwithdrawal of funds from bankaccounts maintained bybusinesses engaged in phonecard activity;pcash deposits containing a largenumber of 100 bills;punexpectedly large transactionsoccurring over relatively briefperiods of time;plack of, or improbable reasonsfor financial activity;pfrequent structured transactionsfollowed by immediatewithdrawals;punusual outgoing wire transfers,cashiers check purchases, checkcashing, and check and moneyorder deposits;punexpected check cashing activityoccurring at businesses whoseprincipal activity is phone cardsales;psmall retailers suddenly orirregularly experiencing highvolumes of phone card sales, withaccompanying major increases incash deposits.The reported dollar volumes associated with these activities range fromUnited States Department of the Treasury . Financial Crimes Enforcement Network

300,000 to 50 million. In one instance,information from the SARs indicated thatover 50 million in deposits (checks,cash, and money orders) were received inone year by a communications companyinvolved in the sale of prepaid telephonecards by convenience stores. In anotherinstance, a bank reported 370 cashdeposits by a prepaid phone card business totaling more than 3 million inapproximately three months, exceedingthe business s expected cash flow. In athird case, a bank reported a homebased phone card business with morethan 500,000 deposited within a twomonth period. Another scenario involveddaily cash deposits of 9,000 from aphone card business continuing over aneight-month period. In some instances,the use of phone cards and the connection with volume wholesale or retail salesof phone cards were central to thesuspicious activity. In other cases, thephone card connection appeared as anadjunct to the main suspect activity.What to do:Financial institutions should alert keypersonnel to the possible use of phonecard sales to facilitate and/or concealmoney laundering. Financial institutionsshould be sensitive to financial transactions by phone card businesses, retail orwholesale, when those businesses generate cash flows that are well beyond theirnormal business activity. The specificsuspicious activity/methodology observedthat involves phone cards and/or businesses involved in phone card salesshould be described fully in the narrativesection of the SAR, including the involvement of participants in foreign countries.For additional information, comments,or questions concerning suspiciousphone-card-related transactions, pleasecall FinCEN s Office of Strategic Analysisat (703) 905-3545.James F.

This finding is reported in the second issue of the SARActivity Review – Trends, Tips and Issues, a collaborative report being released today whichprovides feedback to the financial, law enforcement and regulatory communities based on analysisof the SAR data.In 1997, the first full year of required SAR reporting, 44 instances of identity theft werereported. From January to November 30, 2000, there were 617 SARs filed reporting identity theft.The Review provides further insight into patterns of criminal financial activity associated withidentity theft through the analysis of SAR data.For instance, SARs indicate the fraudulent use of social security numbers to obtain car loansfor high-end vehicles. In most cases, the bank is alerted to the scheme because the perpetratorimmediately defaults on the loan payments; however, it is a difficult task for the bank to determinewho actually purchased or leased the vehicle in question. In another common scenario, a victim'smail is stolen, which often includes bank or convenience checks issued by credit card companies.The victims are often unaware that the thief is writing checks against their account until theyreceive a monthly statement from the bank or credit card company.The Review, the first of which was issued in October 2000, represents a vital, cooperativeeffort involving financial services representatives, federal law enforcement and regulatory agencies.Included in the report are SAR statistics, patterns and trends of suspicious activity that have beenreported, law enforcement investigations that incorporated SAR information, tips and guidance forfinancial institutions on form preparation and filing, and an industry forum.FinCEN Director James F. Sloan commended the collaborative efforts of all involved toproduce this latest report. “The Review is one of the best examples of the type of cooperation thatdefines the FinCEN network, ” he said. “This on-going effort is absolutely essential to ourcontinuing commitment to provide law enforcement, regulators and the regulated industry withmeaningful information about the utility of Suspicious Activity Reports.”

- more John Byrne, senior counsel and compliance manager for the American Banker’s Associationand co-chair of the SAR Activity Review project with FinCEN, concurred with the importance ofinformation sharing among law enforcement, regulators and industry. “This information onidentity theft filings will greatly assist the public-private efforts in reducing this crime. The SARReview remains a tremendous resource for our members,” said Byrne.Financial institutions were required to begin filing SARs in April of 1996 to assist lawenforcement in detecting and prosecuting violations of money laundering and other financialcrimes. The SAR system replaced the “criminal referral reporting” system that had been in placesince 1984. As the SAR program matured, feedback among law enforcement, regulators and theregulated industry about the value of the information being reported was recognized as animportant part of on-going efforts to further refine the quality of SAR information.Among those that participated in this review were: the American Bankers Association;Independent Bankers Association; Independent Community Bankers of America; AmericanInstitute of Certified Public Accountants; Securities Industry Association; Non-Bank FundsTransmitters Group; Federal Reserve Board; Office of the Comptroller of the Currency; FederalDeposit Insurance Corporation; Office of Thrift Supervision; National Credit UnionAdministration; Federal Bureau of Investigation; U.S. Department of Justice’s Asset Forfeitureand Money Laundering Section; U.S. Department of Justice’s Criminal Division; U.S.Department of the Treasury’s Office of Enforcement; U.S. Customs Service; U.S. Secret Service;Internal Revenue Service; and Financial Crimes Enforcement Network.The Review will be available on FinCEN’s website today.

Section 1Suspicious Activity Report Statistics1April 1, 1996 - December 31, 2000The statistics on the following pages relate to SARs filed since April 1996 bydepository institutions (i.e., banks, thrifts, savings and loans, and credit unions).A small part of the total volume relates to reports filed by affiliates of depositoryinstitutions or, in some cases, filed voluntarily by brokers and dealers in securitiesthat are not affiliated with banks, money services businesses, or gaming businesses that have no regulatory requirements at this time that mandate SAR filings.Note: SAR statistical data is continuously updated as additional reports are filed andprocessed. For this reason, there may be minor discrepancies between the statisticalfigures contained in various portions of this report.Exhibit 1SAR Filings by Year and MonthNumber of 2120,506156,931Statistics generated for this study were based on the Document Control Number (DCN) of each recordwithin the SAR system. The DCN is a unique number assigned to each SAR submitted. Numeric discrepancies between total number of filings and the combined number of filings of states and/or territories is a resultof multiple filers listed on one or more SARs.

Section 2National Trends and AnalysesThis section of the SAR Activity Review outlines examples and patterns of suspicious activity reported in the national database. Some of the information hasbeen published previously, but is included here for ease of reference.1. Highlighted TrendThe Highlighted Trend for this issue of the SAR Activity Review IdentityTheft was suggested by the financial industry as a topic of concern based onindustry perceptions of increases in both the incidence of identity theft-basedfraud and SAR reporting about the phenomenon. Results of FinCEN s analysis ofSAR data confirm these perceptions and provide insights into the patterns ofcriminal financial activity associated with identity theft on a national basis.Identity TheftIn October 1998, the Congress passed the Identity Theft and Assumption Deterrence Act of 1998 to address the problem of identity theft. Specifically, the Actamended 18 USC § 1028 to make it a federal crime for anyone to:knowingly [transfer] or [use], without lawful authority, a meansof identification of another person with the intent to commit, orto aid or abet, any unlawful activity that constitutes a violation ofFederal law, or that constitutes a felony under any applicableState or local law.While identity theft is not a new problem, advanced technology (in particular the Internet) is proving to be a powerful facilitator. According to the FederalTrade Commission (FTC) and law enforcement agencies, identity theft is increasing at an alarming rate. For example, in March 2000, the FTC received andresponded to roughly 400 such complaints and inquiries. The FTC currently logsapproximately 1,700 complaints and inquiries a week connected with all types ofidentity theft. Identity theft was the top consumer complaint received by the FTCduring calendar year 2000. 111114Washington Post. February 4, 2
