Conformité aux lois

Waricel is taking regulatory compliance seriously. New anti-money laundering regulations that may directly impact Waricel as a prepaid cards provider have recently been released. These new regulations, known as the prepaid access “Final Rule,” were issued by the Department of Treasury’s Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (FinCEN) and require the collection and verification of customer information when certain prepaid cards are sold or reloaded.

Waricel provides a closed-loop prepaid access with a daily limit of $1000, which is well below the $2000 limit set by FinCEN for exclusion from the prepaid access regulation. Also each customer can only purchase one mobile topup card at a time for a maximum value of $300, therefore minimizing the risk and allowing Waricel to monitor each individual order. Since Waricel is an e-commerce business, its information system already in place is monitoring all transactions in real-time to monitor all transactions and trigger verification for any suspicious transactions. Based on its business model, and as a provider of closed-loop prepaid access with daily limit of $1000. Waricel is excluded from the prepaid access FinCEN regulation and is not required to register as a Money Service Business (MSB).
