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 Special Alert, 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.
