Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act (UIGEA) and Regulation GG Policy
It is Streator Onized Credit Union’s policy to comply with Regulation GG, as mandated by the Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act (UIGEA) and enforced by the Federal Trade Commission. This regulation requires credit unions to put in place policies and procedures designed to prevent illegal Internet gambling operations from setting up accounts and to prevent card transactions from being made to unlawful Internet gambling operations.
New Commercial Accounts: At account opening, business members will be notified that Streator Onized Credit Union prohibits use of accounts to participate, in any form, in unlawful internet gambling. When a commercial member comes in to open an account, the member must certify in writing that the business will not engage in an unlawful Internet gambling business. If the potential business member engages in an Internet gambling business, the member must provide (1) documentation to show that the Internet gambling business is lawful and (2) a written commitment by the member to notify the credit union of any changes in its legal authority to engage in such business.
