This usually starts either a person who already knows their target (family member or "friend") or with a criminal dumpster diving for initial information. It's rare and ACU has processes in place to ensure this doesn't happen, but it is absolutely worth taking a moment to ensure we have the correct information for you. This will also help us avoid compliance issues and fees!
