The USA Patriot Act is designed to detect and deter terrorists in the United States and abroad. The Act required by the Department of Treasury prescribes regulations that will establish minimum standards for the identification and verification of customers in connection with the acceptance of refining materials. These regulations require manufacturers, refiners, wholesalers, retailers and any other entity engaged in the business of purchasing and selling precious metals, precious stones or jewelry to obtain certain information such as name, physical address and government issued identification number.
Refining lots cannot be settled for new customers until this form is filled out and returned by the company’s owner. Checks will only be made payable to the Company/Person listed on the Patriot Act Form when it has been completed and returned signed by the owner. A new payee requires a new form to be competed and signed.
Please note that customer information will be kept confidential. This information will not be shared with anyone outside of our company and federal law requires us to safeguard customer personal information.
