Tether: We've Onboarded US Secret Service and FBI to Our Platform
"Tether recently onboarded the United States Secret Service into our platform and is in the process of doing the same with the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI)," the company wrote in a letter addressed to Senator Cynthia Lummis.
"In a recent letter shared with U.S. legislators, Tether’s CEO has elaborated on his methods to prevent unsavory individuals from using the company’s USDT stablecoins, including by onboarding the Secret Service and FBI to the company’s platform," reported The Block.
"The November 16th letter outlines Tether’s Anti-Money Laundering (AML) and Know Your Customer (KYC) policies and standards, and describes its proactive and extensive cooperation with law enforcement agencies worldwide, including the U.S. Department of Justice and the U.S. Secret Service. "
"The December 15th letter lays out Tether's proactive decision to align with the Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) Specially Designated Nationals (SDN) List, extending sanctions controls to the secondary market to ensure comprehensive security measures."
"Tether's active role in assisting law enforcement agencies, includes partnerships with the U.S. Department of Justice, U.S. Secret Service, and ongoing efforts to collaborate with the Federal Bureau of Investigation. This collaboration aims to combat illegal activities and aid in fund recovery," was stated in the company's blog post.
“Tether seeks to be a world class partner to the U.S. as we continue to assist law enforcement and expand dollar hegemony globally,” stated Paolo Ardoino, CEO of Tether.
