To help the government fight the funding of terrorism and money laundering activities, US Federal law requires all financial institutions to obtain, verify and record information that identifies each person who opens an account. This requirement is present in many pieces of legislation, but the strongest requirement comes from FinCEN and the US PATRIOT Act, section 326. You can find more information about the US PATRIOT Act and it's requirements on the US FinCEN site.

This means that when you open an account with us, Escrow.com is required to collect information about you and your company, such as a copy of your driver’s license, passport or other identifying material as part of the verification process.
