Reporting Terrorist Activity
FDIC encourages financial institutions to cooperate with law enforcement
in the investigation of terrorist activity in the United States. In
Financial Institution Letter 87-2001, dated September 28, 2001, banking
organizations were asked to voluntarily report suspicious transactions
related to terrorist activity to law enforcement using the Financial Crimes
Enforcement Network's ("FinCEN") Financial Institutions Hotline at
1-866-556-3974. The hotline operates seven days a week, 24 hours a day.
The hotline's purpose is to provide to law enforcement the nature of the
suspicious activity expeditiously.
