Anti-Terrorist Measures

Reporting Terrorist Activity

FDIC encourages financial institutions to cooperate with law enforcement in the investigation of terrorist activity in the United States.  In Financial Institution Letter 87-2001, dated September 28, 2001, banking organizations were asked to voluntarily report suspicious transactions related to terrorist activity to law enforcement using the Financial Crimes Enforcement Network's ("FinCEN") Financial Institutions Hotline at 1-866-556-3974.  The hotline operates seven days a week, 24 hours a day. The hotline's purpose is to provide to law enforcement the nature of the suspicious activity expeditiously.
