The Unlawful Internet Gambling Act (UIGEA) of 2006 prohibits a bank from processing restricted transactions through your business account. The UIGEA, signed into law in 2006, prohibits any person engaged in the business of betting or wagering (as defined in the Act) from knowingly accepting payments in connection with the participation of another person in unlawful gambling. The Dept. of Treasury and the Federal Reserve Board have issued a joint final rule, Regulation GG, to implement this Act. As defined in Reg GG, unlawful Internet gambling means to "place, receive or otherwise knowingly transmit a bet or wager by any means which involves the use, at least in part, of the internet where such bet or wager is unlawful under any applicable Federal or State law in the State or Tribal lands in which the bet or wager is initiated, received or otherwise made." As a customer of First State Bank of the Florida Keys, these restricted transactions are prohibited from being processed through your account or banking relationship with us. If you do engage in an Internet gambling business and open a new account with us, we will ask that you provide evidence of your legal capacity to do so.

BENEFICIAL OWNERSHIP CERTIFICATION: To help the government fight financial crime, Federal regulation requires financial institutions to obtain, verify, and record information about the beneficial owners of most legal entity (business) customers.  A form must be completed by the person opening any new business account to include name, address, date of birth, and Social Security number (passport number or similar for non-US persons) for each individual who owns 25% or more of the equity of the legal entity, as well as for an individual who manages the business. Please contact a FSB representative at any branch for appropriate forms or additional details.
