December 2021 – ALERT!! – Emerging Typology – Business Email Compromise. The Financial Intelligence Agency of the Turks and Caicos Islands ‘the FIA-TCI’ published a  notice to warn reporting entities and the public of an increasing trend in the typology of ‘business email compromise’ occurring within the Turks and Caicos Islands.  
 
 

The FIA is mandated to receive, store, analyse and disseminate intelligence related to suspected money laundering, terrorist financing and proliferation financing (ML/TF/PF). As such, all financial institutions,  including DNFBPs and NPOs, are obligated to report all attempted and completed suspicious transactions to the FIA. These reports contribute to the continued efforts to deter  acts of money laundering, terrorist and proliferation financing and all their associated crimes within the TCI. The FIA provides the number of SARs/STRs reported to the organisation for the fiscal years 2016/17 to 2020/21. Click here for more…

Sanction Orders within the TCI are mainly derived from those issued by the UN and the EU. They are enacted domestically to give them the force of law in the TCI. The Governor is the competent authority in the TCI for the implementation of targeted financial sanctions. The Governor has delegated some of the functions for financial sanctions to the Attorney General’s Chambers (AGC). Sanction notices can be viewed on the Office of the Attorney General’s website.

The FIA is in the process of scheduling its Outreach and Awareness sessions for the period January – March, 2022. Reporting entities will be contacted for attendance scheduling for these sessions. These sessions are designed to ensure that reporting entities are made aware of their obligations to report all suspicious and attempted transactions to the FIA, in an attempt to alleviate money laundering, terrorist financing and all other associated crimes.
