We will need to be able to satisfy the person who is asking for the STAMP to be applied is the genuine person able to authorise the transfer or sale of stocks, securities or shares. The applicants detailed will be searched on databases uses for Money Laundering Purposes and for the Prevention of Terrorism.
We were recently able to assist a client with a Medallion Guarantee who had the same name as a person on the Office of Foreign Asset Control (OFAC) database.
The whole purpose of the Medallion Stamp Program was to cut down on the risk of fraud, events like 9-11 in New York only solidify the US governments resolve to crackdown on fraud, money laundering and terrorism. Our vetting of clients to obtain the Signature Guarantee is strict but for the genuine applicant these requirements do not cause too many problems.
