All submitted documentation is held in the strictest confidence. However, in cases of intentional abuse, any member participating, abetting or assisting in fraudulent and/or attempted fraudulent activities relinquishes any and all rights to privacy of personal information.
In compliance with the Uniting and Strengthening America by Providing Appropriate Tools Required to Intercept and Obstruct Terrorism Act (USA PATRIOT Act) ("Act"), Pub. Law 107-56(2001), WorldVentures has adopted an Anti-Money Laundering (AML) compliance policy ("Policy") as set forth in the Board minutes of its respective financial related companies, dated September 2007 and updated on November 25, 2007; to incorporate the Final Rules issued by Financial Crimes Enforcement Network ("FinCEN") United States Department of the Treasury ("Treasury") in November 2007.
This policy applies to all WorldVentures, its officers, and employees, appointed producers and products and services offered by WorldVentures. All business units, including, without limitation, the WorldVentures, and locations within WorldVentures will cooperate to create a cohesive effort in the fight against money laundering. Each business unit and location have implemented risk-based procedures reasonably expected to prevent, detect and cause the reporting of transactions required under Title III, Section 352 and Section 326, of the Act. All efforts exerted will be documented and retained in accordance with the Act. The AML Compliance Committee is responsible for initiating Suspicious Activity Reports ("SARs") or other required reporting to the appropriate law enforcement or regulatory agencies. Any contacts by law enforcement or regulatory agencies related to the Policy shall be directed to the AML Compliance Committee.
It is the policy of WorldVentures to prohibit and actively pursue the prevention of money laundering and any activity that facilitates money laundering or the funding of terrorist or criminal activities. WorldVentures is committed to AML compliance in accordance with applicable law and requires its officers, employees and appointed producers to adhere to these standards in preventing the use of its products and services for money laundering purposes.
For the purposes of the Policy, money laundering is generally defined as engaging in acts designed to conceal or disguise the true origins of criminally derived proceeds so that the unlawful proceeds appear to have been derived from legitimate origins or constitute legitimate assets.
Generally, money laundering occurs in three stages. Cash first enters the financial system at the "enrollment" stage, where the cash generated from criminal activities is converted into monetary instruments, such as money orders or traveler's checks, or deposited into accounts at financial institutions. At the "layering" stage, the funds are transferred or moved into other accounts or other financial institutions to further separate the money from its criminal origin. At the "integration" stage, the funds are reintroduced into the economy and used to purchase legitimate assets or to fund other criminal activities or legitimate businesses.
Terrorist financing may not involve the proceeds of criminal conduct, but rather an attempt to conceal the origin or intended use of the funds, which will later be used for criminal purposes.
There are signs of suspicious activity that suggest money laundering. These are commonly referred to as "red flags." If a red flag is detected, additional due diligence will be performed before proceeding with the transaction. If a reasonable explanation is not determined, the suspicious activity shall be reported.
WorldVentures is compliant in filing a SAR report (Suspicious Activity Report) when it knows and/or suspects that:
1. The funds come from illegal activity or disguise funds from illegal activity;
2. The transaction is structured to evade BSA (Banking Secrecy Act) requirements or appears to serve no known business or apparent lawful purpose; or,
3. Our services are being used to facilitate criminal activity.
Transaction based monitoring will occur within the appropriate business units of WorldVentures. Monitoring of specific transactions will include but is not limited to transactions aggregating or more and those with respect to which WorldVentures has a reason to suspect suspicious activity. All reports will be documented and retained in accordance with the Act.
