OUR COMPLIANCE WITH
THE USA PATRIOT ACT
We are compliant with the USA Patriot Act that was signed into federal law on October 26, 2001 requiring that “dealers in precious metals, stones or jewels” implement a written anti-money laundering program to assist the United States government in the fight against funding terrorism.
Because the jewelry industry has been identified as an area at high risk for money laundering activity, we are required to ensure, to the best of our ability, that the persons and businesses that we sell to and buy from are legitimate and not involved in funding terrorism or laundering money. As per the Patriot Act’s statutory requirement, we’ll ask you to complete a form asking for your name and if you do trade business with us, your legal business name and owner, address, and business tax ID number. We then keep these completed forms in our office, under lock, to fulfill our responsibilities per the Act.
