Customer Question

Should I be concerned if a "potential" client (walks in off the street) brings a large sum of "inherited" money to invest in the form of a cashier's check?
What information do I need to gather to protect myself from potentially aiding and abetting an attempt to launder money?

Hi from just answer. I'm PDtax, and will assist.

The transaction you describe can create problems. IRS has a form 8300 that is required for transactions in cash over $10,000. Execution of that form is enough to cover your risk in most cases.

Google 8300 pdf for a copy of the firm and filing instructions.

Thanks for asking at just answer. Positive feedback is appreciated. I'm PDtax.
