Money Laundering Prevention

What am I asked to do?

You may find that you are requested to confirm your identity and provide some personal details. OKPAY has put in place a dedicated system of identity verification that ensures the safety and security of both your OKPAY account and the entire payment system. Note that your transaction volume limit is directly dependent upon the extent to which your identity has been verified.

When?

You could be asked to confirm your identity whether you are applying to be a new customer or have been a customer for some time. While our identity verification systems are designed to minimize any inconvenience for you, the verification process may take several days to complete.

Why?

Crime and terrorism need cash. Criminals turn the "dirty" cash made from drug trafficking, smuggling, and robbery into clean money by using false identities or taking the names of innocent people like you. Making sure that people are who they say they are is essential in the fight against crime and terrorism. This does not mean in any way that suspicion is falling on you. Any information about your identity is held confidentially and will help stop your identity being used falsely.

Who is involved?

Government and all other organizations involved in financial services. All are united in their determination to stop the spread of financial crime as part of the international effort to crack down on it – protecting us all against crime and terrorism.

Your cooperation is vital to the successful fight against crime and terrorism.

What the law requires:

  • We may be required to verify your identity and address.
  • We are required to keep full records of all transactions together with the identification provided.
  • We are required to monitor any unusual or suspicious transactions of any size.
