When should I call the OFAC Hotline?

Please take the following "due diligence" steps in determining a valid OFAC match.

If you are calling about a wire transfer or other "live" transaction:

1. Is the "hit" or "match" against OFAC's SDN list or targeted countries, or is it "hitting" for some other reason (i.e., "Control List" or "PEP," "CIA," "Non-Cooperative Countries and Territories," "Canadian Consolidated List (OSFI)," "World Bank Debarred Parties," "Blocked Officials File," or "government official of a designated country"), or can you not tell what the "hit" is?

If it's hitting against OFAC's SDN list or targeted countries, continue FORWARD.

If it's hitting for some other reason, you should contact the "keeper" of whichever other list the match is hitting against. For questions about other lists, GO HERE.

If you are unsure whom to contact, please contact your interdict software provider which told you there was a "hit."

If you can't tell what the "hit" is, you should contact your interdict software provider which told you there was a "hit."
