World Compliance: Creating Stronger Ties To Fight Crime

- Open Source Intelligence used to aid in the fight against drug trafficking and money laundering

MIAMI, March 16 /PRNewswire/ -- As drug trafficking and money laundering continue to grow, governments are enacting tougher laws to combat the surge. Costa Rica is no different, leading the fight by instituting tougher legislation in this country of four million inhabitants. To achieve this goal, companies -- primarily financial institutions -- are required to identify their customers and the source of their income.

World Compliance announced today a partnership agreement with Verifica, Costa Rica's leading provider of Anti-Money Laundering and Know Your Customer software. "The partnership with Verifica is the culmination of several months of development to ensure that the product we deliver is the absolute best in class," said Jose Da Silva, Latin America Sales Director for World Compliance.

"We have combined efforts to offer a solution that not only provides customers with profiles containing unique identifiers such as national IDs, photos, date of birth as well as a relationship tree with their family members and associates, but also instant alerts from major warning lists such as the FBI, OFAC, Interpol and SUGEF," added Mr. Da Silva.

There are so many connected products already in place today with many hundreds more on the h...
