We take very seriously our responsibility to prevent Money Laundering by organised crime and terrorists. This not only meets statutory requirements placed on businesses which process money by the UK government, but also meets our corporate social responsibilities. It prevents your identity being hijacked by fraudsters and helps us maintain a sustainable business for our customers by ensuring we are not the target of fraud.
We provide your registration information to Onfido, one of the UK's leading identity services provider, who will verify your identity against government, public and proprietary databases including Experian, Equifax and Call Credit. Occasionally they may also ask you to provide government identity documents for further verification. These are checked for validity and compared with your identity check results and the personal information you supplied.
