In traditional cross-border payments, the Sender provides the Recipient’s name to the Source Bank, who includes it in the payment instruction. But this opens a number of sources of potential data inaccuracy: the sender may misspell the name, use short names or nicknames or mix up the order of first and middle names. All of these errors may increase the chance of triggering alerts against sanctions lists and make it harder to establish whether alerts are false or true matches. In addition, all of the above may be used intentionally by criminals with the intention of making a payment through to someone on a sanctions list whilst evading sanctions checks. For this reason, it is preferrable to retrieve the Recipient name from the Destination Bank.
