Financial Institution Letters
Bank Secrecy Act
Treasury, acting through the Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (FinCEN), is issuing a proposed rule to impose special measures against First Merchant Bank. The proposed rule would prohibit U.S. financial institutions from opening or maintaining correspondent or payable-through accounts in the U.S. for, or on behalf of, First Merchant Bank. This proposed prohibition extends to correspondent or payable-through accounts maintained for other foreign banks when such accounts are used by the foreign bank to provide financial services to First Merchant Bank indirectly.
Treasury is soliciting written comments regarding this proposed rule. The proposed rule can be found on the FinCEN Web site under "What's New" at http://www.fincen.gov. Comments must be submitted on or before September 23, 2004, to Treasury via electronic mail at email@example.com. Include RIN 1506-AA65 in the subject line of the message. Comments may also be submitted by paper mail to FinCEN, P.O. Box 39, Vienna, Virginia 22183. Include RIN 1506-AA65 in the body of the text.
Please distribute this information to the appropriate personnel in your institution.
