Benefits Include


When used as a stand-alone service, customers need only submit name, address and DOB. In addition, when using gIDENTIFY Standard, an automatic OFAC screen is performed free of charge with every gIDENTIFY inquiry. If a hit is detected on an OFAC list, GIACT recommends that a full gOFAC inquiry is made on the individual or company.

When used as a stand-alone service, gOFAC will return a response based on the match level as well as the information related to the sanction lists. Additionally, every gIDENTIFY Standard inquiry automatically includes an OFAC screen at no additional charge. When performed with gIDENTIFY and when a hit has been found on any of the OFAC lists, you will receive a notice of that hit. GIACT recommends that you run a full gOFAC screen at that time to receive the full details above.

Others use it for existing customers requesting changes to their payment and/or profile information to work to ensure the request is being made by the true account holder. This technique has helped to deter diversion of money and/goods to a fraudster’s account and/or address as part of a fraud scam. SecureLink has many uses and can be customized to fit your business needs.

Like most products that make up the EPIC Platform®, when gOFAC is used as a stand-alone service, you will be charged a per transaction fee based on your projected volumes.

gOFAC can be configured to automatically monitor customer and business records as OFAC and other sanction lists are updated to screen for potential hits. If matches occur, the system operator is notifed and can then review potential matches in a dedicated case management system.
