Posted from Fatwallet:

Opened an account with this company and had a $240 payment sent to my account. Soon after I received an email that my account was suspended. When I inquired about the cause of the suspension I was accused of being a terrorist!!

I receive mail at a mail receiving agent that many folks use.

This is the exact text of the email:

Mr. *****,

Thank you for your patience. Here is the reason that your Dwolla Account has been suspended:
Your address matches exactly to an OFAC (Office of Foreign Assets Control) address listed on their SDN (Specially Designated Nationals & Blocked Persons) targets to be affiliated with a known terrorist foundation.
OFAC website - http://www.treasury.gov/about/organizational-structure/offices/P...
OFAC Resource Center - http://www.treasury.gov/resource-center/sanctions/SDN-List/Pages...
SDN List that your address matches - http://www.treasury.gov/ofac/downloads/t11sdn.pdf
You can hit CTRL + F and type your address to find where on the list your address appears.

We have been instructed to determine whether you are affiliated with the ALHARAMAIN ISLAMIC FOUNDATION (there are several other known aliases - please see your address on the SDN list to review them all). Your funds will be held until we can verify that you are not affiliated with this organization.
Please answer the following questions:
1. Are you affiliated with the ALHARAMAIN ISLAMIC FOUNDATION?
2. How long have you resided a this current address?
3. Are you representing yourself or a corporate entity?

Please do not call us to answer these questions. We require that you respond via email. We appreciate your cooperation, sir.

Has nothing whatsoever to do with Dwolla, you got caught on the SDN list, kind of like the people who every year get caught on the "no-fly" list because of an unfortunate name. Not Dwolla's fault really... Where exactly do you live and how long have you lived there?

LOL this accusation is kinda funny. those silly questions proves nothing, and also you can decide whether to tell the truth or not, which dwolla has to decide if they believe you or not.

This is the banking version of:

Sir have you packed your bags yourself?
Has anyone unknown to you asked you to carry anything on the flight?
