(FinCEN Form 111A)

Suspicious Activity Report Instructions (SAR-DI)

Safe Harbor Federal law (31 U.S.C. 5318(g)(3))
provides complete protection from civil liability for
a ll reports of suspicious transactions made to
appropriate authorities, including supporting
documentation, regardless of whether such reports
are filed pursuant to this report’s instructions or are
filed on a voluntary basis. Specifically, the law
provides that a financial institution, and its directors,
officers, employees and agents, that make a
disclosure of any possible violation of law or
regulation, including in connection with the
preparation of suspicious activity reports, “shall not
be liable to any person under any law or regulation
of the United States, any constitution, law, or
regulation of any State or political subdivision of any
State, or under any contract or other legally
enforceable agreement (including any arbitration
agreement), for such disclosure or for any failure to
provide notice of such disclosure to the person who
is the subject of such disclosure or any other person
identified in the disclosure”. This applies to the filer
and joint filer(s).
Notification Prohibited: Federal law (31 U.S.C.
5318(g)(2)) requires that a financial institution and its
directors, officers, employees and agents, who,
voluntarily or by means of a suspicious activity report,
report suspected or known criminal violations or
suspicious activities, may not notify any person (subject)
involved in the transaction that the transaction has been
reported. See narrative checklist item “s.”
In situations involving violations requiring
immediate attention, such as when a reportable
violation is ongoing, the financial institution shall
immediately notify, by telephone, appropriate law
enforcement and financial institution supervisory
authorities in addition to filing a timely suspicious
activity report. List any such contact in Part V.
General Instructions
Definition: Depository Institution.
For the purposes of suspicious activity reporting
in accordance with 31 CFR 103.18, and the use
of this suspicious activity report form, the term
Depository Institution includes those entities
listed in 31 CFR 103.11(c) as well as bank holding
companies and nonbank subsidiaries of bank
holding companies.
A. When to file
General. Every Depository Institution shall file with
the Treasury Department, to the extent and in the
manner required by 31 CFR Part 103.18, a report
of any suspicious transaction relevant to a possible
violation of law or regulation. A Depository Institution may also file with the Treasury Department by
using the Suspicious Activity Report specified in 31
CFR Part 103.18, a report of any suspicious transaction that it believes is relevant to the possible violation of any law or regulation but whose reporting
is not required by this section.

associations, savings association service
corporations, credit unions, bank holding
companies, nonbank subsidiaries of bank holding
companies, Edge and Agreement corporations, and
U.S. branches and agencies of foreign banks, are
required to make this report following the
discovery of:
a. Insider abuse involving any amount.
Whenever the Depository Institution detects any
known or suspected Federal criminal violation, or
pattern of criminal violations, committed or
attempted against the Depository Institution or
involving a transaction or transactions conducted
through the Depository Institution, where the
Depository Institution believes that it was either
an actual or potential victim of a criminal violation,
or series of criminal violations, or that the
Depository Institution was used to facilitate a
criminal transaction, and the Depository Institution
has a substantial basis for identifying one of its
directors, officers, employees, agents or other
institution-affiliated parties as having committed
or aided in the commission of a criminal act
regardless of the amount involved in the violation.
b. Violations aggregating $5,000 or more
where a subject can be identified. Whenever
the Depository Institution detects any known or
suspected Federal criminal violation, or pattern of
criminal violations, committed or attempted against
the financial institution or involving a transaction
or transactions conducted through the Depository
Institution and involving or aggregating $5,000 or
more in funds or other assets, where the Depository
Institution believes that it was either an actual or
potential victim of a criminal violation, or series of
criminal violations, or that the Depository
Institution was used to facilitate a criminal
transaction, and the Depository Institution has a
substantial basis for identifying a possible subject
or group of subjects. If it is determined prior to
filing this report that the identified subject or group
of subjects has used an “alias,” then information
regarding the true identity of the subject or group
of subjects, as well as alias identifiers, such as
drivers’ licenses or social security numbers,
addresses and telephone numbers, must be
reported.
c. Violations aggregating $25,000 or more
regardless of a potential subject. Whenever the
Depository Institution detects any known or
suspected Federal criminal violation, or pattern of
criminal violations, committed or attempted against
the Depository Institution or involving a transaction
or transactions conducted through the financial
institution and involving or aggregating $25,000
or more in funds or other assets, where the
Depository Institution believes that it was either
an actual or potential victim of a criminal violation,
or series of criminal violations, or that the
Depository Institution was used to facilitate a
criminal transaction, even though there is no
substantial basis for identifying a possible subject
or group of subjects.

1. All Depository Institutions operating in the
United States, including insured banks, savings

Catalog No. 49343Q

d. Transactions aggregating $5,000 or more
that involve potential money laundering or
violations of the Bank Secrecy Act. Any transaction
(which for purposes of this subsection means a
deposit, withdrawal, transfer between accounts,
exchange of currency, loan, extension of credit,
purchase or sale of any stock, bond, certificate of
deposit, or other monetary instrument or
investment security, or any other payment, transfer,
or delivery by, through, or to a Depository
Institution, by whatever means effected) conducted
or attempted by, at or through the Depository
Institution and involving or aggregating $5,000 or
more in funds or other assets, if the Depository
Institution knows, suspects, or has reason to suspect
that:
i. The transaction involves funds derived from
illegal activities or is intended or conducted in
order to hide or disguise funds or assets derived
from illegal activities (including, without limitation,
the ownership, nature, source, location, or control
of such funds or assets) as part of a plan to violate
or evade any law or regulation or to avoid any
transaction reporting requirement under Federal
law;
ii. The transaction is designed to evade
any regulations promulgated under the Bank
Secrecy Act; or
iii. The transaction has no business or
apparent lawful purpose or is not the sort in which
the particular customer would normally be
expected to engage, and the Depository Institution
knows of no reasonable explanation for the
transaction after examining the available facts,
including the background and possible purpose
of the transaction.
2. The Bank Secrecy Act requires all institutions
to file currency transaction reports (CTRs) in
accordance with the Department of the Treasury’s
implementing regulations (31 CFR Part 103). These
regulations require a Depository Institution to file
a CTR whenever a currency transaction exceeds
$10,000.
3. If a currency transaction exceeds $10,000
and is suspicious, the institution must file both a
CTR (reporting the currency transaction) and a
suspicious activity report (reporting the suspicious
or criminal aspects of the transaction). If a currency
transaction equals or is below $10,000 and is
suspicious, the institution should only file a
suspicious activity report.
4. A Depository Institution is required to file a
suspicious activity report no later than 30 calendar
days after the date of initial detection of facts that
may constitute a basis for filing a suspicious activity
report. If no subject was identified on the date of
detection of the incident requiring the filing, a
Depository Institution may delay filing a suspicious
activity report for an additional 30 calendar days
to identify a subject. In no case shall reporting be
delayed more than 60 calendar days after the
date of initial detection of a reportable transaction.

(Rev. 6/07)

5. This suspicious activity report does not
need to be filed for those robberies and burglaries
that are reported to local authorities, or (except for
savings associations and service corporations) for
lost, missing, counterfeit, or stolen securities that
are reported pursuant to the requirements of 17
CFR 240.17f-1.
B.
