Fraud Alert/Blocked Persons List
Access this screen by selecting "Add Organization" on the previous screen.
This second screen is used to add an organization to your credit union's blocked persons/fraud alert database.
For an individual, there will be separate fields for a first and last name. For an organization, there will be a single field for the organization name. Both types have an optional field for a Social Security number, Tax ID number, or other ID number. Use the Comment field for any description or comment as to why the name is being entered into the database (such as “PASSED BAD CHECKS” or ”LOAN CHARGE OFF.”)
CU*TIP: If you have an actual, valid SSN, it is usually best to enter only that with no name, to avoid missing a match when a name happens to be spelled wrong or an alias is used.
At least one of the fields must be completed; it is not necessary to complete all three. Remember that multiple records can be entered into the database for the same person, using different spellings of names.
