    It's just part of standard checks by lenders. Nothing to worry about.

    Unless of course, you have a suitcase full of blood stained banknotes under your bed, in which case there's a lot to worry about.

    The CRA's don't know that much about us. Yet.

    An Anti-Money Laundering check is just that. A check to see that you are not taking part in money laundering. All banks have to do it by law. If you are not taking part in money laundering then you can sleep safely at night.
    Anything I say in no way constitutes financial advice and anything you do is your own decision.

    Are you money laundering?


    If no: STOP BEING IN A PANIC OVER A CHECK IN ALL CAPS.


    If yes: time to move to Bermuda.
