The Anti-Money Laundering regulation requires us as a bank to be able to provide documentation to the authorities showing that we know the identities of the users in District. This is to help prevent fraudulent use of the financial system.
We understand that some users may feel inconvenienced when we ask for proof of identity and/or other information. However, just as the security checks at an airport ensure that all travelers can enjoy a safe flight, it is both necessary and in the best interests of us all that we meet the legal requirements for knowing our users. Please note that all information will be safely stored.
