*WHY DO THE BANKS HAVE TO CONTROL AND VERIFY THE CUSTOMER´S IDENTITY?
- Due to government regulations, banks are required to comply with the customer due diligence standards.
- Banks are obliged to identify and know their customers. The identity of the customer has to be controlled by verifying the customer’s official identity documents. The bank also has to ascertain sufficient information on the customer’s activities, so as to confirm where incoming money originates from and the purported use of the banking relationship.
