The Charles Jones Patriot Name Search is a Certified Search of lists
published by the Office of Foreign Assets Control of the U.S. Department of Treasury
(“OFAC”), consisting of the "Specially Designated Nationals and Blocked Persons",
the “Foreign Sanctions Evaders”, and the comprehensive “Consolidated List”.
Effective September 24, 2001, Executive Order 13224 was issued (as amended by
Order 13268, and 13608) and requires anyone conducting a financial transaction to
determine if the person(s) with whom they are doing business are listed on the Blocked
Persons list. The USA PATRIOT Act of 2001 requires similar checks and procedures.
Later Executive Orders and sanctions have been imposed that require a check of other
names that appear on OFAC’s “The Consolidated List” before transacting business.
The search also provides business general information on what to do if an
individual name or entity appears on your results.
