Case Study

The Situation

An online poker company needed to conduct KYC due diligence on a Chinese individual who had registered for several online poker platforms and was flagged for suspicious activity. Learn how our Mandarin-language research saved one online gambling platform millions in lost revenue.

The Solution

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.

The Significance

Our analysts compiled and provided insights in a written report, in which they assessed the legitimacy, general background, and overall reputation of the given subject. 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 the subject’s account.
