How It Works
An online poker company needed to conduct KYC due diligence on a Chinese individual who registered for several online poker platforms and was flagged for suspicious activity.
U.S. Public Records searches did not reveal high-risk activity associated with the subject, so our analysts applied open source research methods using the subject’s English name along with their age, and places of residency. This led analysts to discover the individual’s Chinese name spelling. We then searched Chinese-language media and news using this information which led analysts to uncover high-risk details about them.
With a fuller picture of the subject’s background and financial assets, the client was able to make a more informed decision about whether to close his account.
