Thirdfort is a web and mobile application that helps real estate professionals verify the identity of their clients and perform AML checks to reduce the risk of fraud in a real estate transaction.

Our mission is to eliminate risks so that people can move around without fear. To do this, we combine Open Banking, data analysis, and biometric and cryptographic verification to automate identification and meet anti-money laundering (AML) obligations.

We work with over 500 law firms and many leading real estate agents. Leading angel investors back us including James Meekings and Andy Mullinger, co-founders of Funding Circle, David Rutter, founder of R3, and Alex Chesterman, founder of Zoopla and Cazoo.

How did you come up with the idea for Thirdfort?

My business partner, Jack Bidgood, and I started the business after a friend got cheated on £ 25,000 while trying to buy a flat in London. He and his partner each transferred half of the deposit to their lawyer. His money has arrived, not his. He had been hacked. They not only lost £ 25,000 but also their home. The irony is that he was made to feel like a fraudster after going through compliance checks (Know Your Client (KYC) and AML) four times, from scratch and on paper.

At the same time, Jack had also spent weeks sifting through the paperwork and identity checks to purchase his apartment. It took him three weeks to join his lawyer, who also complained about the complex compliance process.

So it was clear to us that the first steps in the home buying process were cumbersome and inappropriate.

We have implemented Thirdfort to simplify the process and reduce the risk of fraud for lawyers, realtors and their clients. In doing so, we have reduced the time required for identity and source of funds verifications from two weeks to less than a day.

How has the business evolved during the pandemic?

Before Covid, lawyers typically met their clients face to face to perform checks and compliance checks, to ensure that the client is who they claim to be.

With real estate lawyers forced to work remotely, the pandemic has accelerated the shift from manual identity verification to digital identity verification and AML checks.

However, without a uniform standard for digital identity verification and AML, it is difficult for professionals to determine which tools are sufficient to protect their business and their customers.

This is where our platform comes in. We are the only company in the legal and real estate market to combine identity verification and source of funds verifications to deliver best-in-class AML.

We stepped up our efforts during the pandemic and were able to meet the needs of transport agents, lawyers, and sales and rental agents.

As a result, our business has grown from a 12-person team with around 60 business clients in February 2020 to over 80 and 550 business clients today.

What can we expect to see from Thirdfort in the future?

We are the first to use the rails provided by Open Banking to power a new AML solution for real estate and legal professionals.

Then, when more than 20% of a law firm’s costs relate to the risks associated with managing client funds, we will create a dedicated real estate payment offering. We will also use Open Banking to power this service.

Longer term, we want to expand into other regulated industries where we see the same manual and clunky methods that companies use to onboard their customers. An individual should not have to go through manual KYC and AML checks several times a year from scratch.

We have already expanded into the real estate agent market. We will then expand our legal services offering before launching into the financial services sector next year.

We also see enormous potential for our technology internationally where Open Banking is six to 12 months late in Europe and often 12 months or more late in other Western countries. We expect to see our first international expansion in the second half of next year.

Saturday night is preparing to be quite the scene at Neyland Stadium. The 4-2 Volunteers are flying high after back-to-back SEC wins, and will now welcome Lane Kiffin’s Ole Miss team to town.

It’s an overnight game, and now we know Checker Neyland is set for a comeback. Danny White confirmed the news on Monday by stating “This Saturday we #CheckerNeyland”.

You can find your section color by visiting CheckerNeyland.com. This will be the fifth time that Checker Neyland has taken place. 2015 Oklahoma, 2016 Florida, 2017 Georgia, and 2018 Florida were the other times, and Tennessee only came out on top once – that crazy 2016 victory over Florida.

Saturday’s game is no shortage of stories. Lane Kiffin returns to Neyland Stadium for the first time as a head coach since joining USC in 2010. The game will also feature two of the best offensives in the country, with a Vegas total of around. 80 points.

Tennessee has not had any sold out this year. They had their biggest crowd of the season last weekend against South Carolina, welcoming over 89,000 fans. Call it COVID issues, call it boring over a decade after losing, Neyland Stadium has yet to see capacity this season. That could change on Saturday night.

Ole Miss-Tennessee kicks off at 7:30 p.m. ET. SEC Network will have the coverage.

“But the details of the policy were never Trump’s expertise,” Kessler wrote. “As the former chief of US diplomacy, Pompeo should be better informed. Instead, he uttered a particularly misleading hodgepodge.”

A spokesperson for Pompeo told the Post he misspoke on Sunday and “wanted to refer to the $ 1.7 billion in cash that was transferred upon the inmate’s release, not $ 150 billion “.

The fact checker noted a appearance by Pompeo on Fox News from 2020 in which the then chief diplomat said: “In 2015, the Obama-Biden administration essentially handed power over to the Iranian rulers and acted as a near ally of theirs, by subscribing to them – by subscribing to the very malicious – that killed Americans … We provided them with $ 150 billion, pallets of money.

The Post awarded Pompeo four “Pinocchios”, as many as possible, for repeating the misleading claim about the Obama administration.

“It is time for Republicans to withdraw this $ 150 billion claim,” Kessler concluded. “It’s often presented as American taxpayer money – it wasn’t – and it was linked to the relief from Treasury sanctions that are now back in place. It is particularly absurd to suggest that this was provided to Iran as a cash transaction, as Pompeo did to Fox viewers. Perhaps Pompeo confused his misleading arguments, but he previously suggested that Obama gave $ 150 billion in cash. cash. So we don’t feel particularly generous. “

Former President Donald Trump made more than seven times as many “false and misleading” claims in his first 100 days in the White House as President Joe Biden, according to the Washington Post fact-checker.

a analysis of every speech, statement, tweet and interview made by the two presidents revealed that Trump made 511 false or misleading claims in his first 100 days, while Biden made 67 on Monday or Day 96.

One of Biden’s two most egregious false or misleading claims, which earned the president a four Pinocchio rating from the Post, was his declaration last month that Georgia shortened its voting hours to end at 5 p.m. Georgia has not done so, but the recently passed state electoral law makes it more difficult to vote by post, reduces the number of drop boxes for ballots distributing food and water to people in line for vote, among other changes.

The other statement of the four Pinocchio was that federal contracts “awarded directly to foreign companies” increased by 30% under Trump. Post fact-check team could not verify this number.

“After four years of a presidency that inundated Americans with a flood of false and misleading claims, the Joe Biden era offered a return to a more typical pattern regarding a commander-in-chief and his relationship with him. the facts – one that exhibits frequent rotation and obfuscation or exaggeration, along with the occasional duck, ”the Post’s fact-checking team said.

DETROIT – A discussion about the race will take place later this month at the Checker Bar in downtown Detroit after an incident between an employee and a customer.

“He started arguing with one of my other friends and it turned into a really big situation,” said Wendall Fleming. “He called her a word I can’t repeat now.”

Fleming said he was at the Checker Bar with friends in June when there was a problem with a bartender. He posted about the incident on social media and the employee was fired.

“That’s when we did our due diligence – follow up, let the employee go the next day,” said Matthew Pollard, director of operations at Grand Trunk Hospitality Group.

Fleming decided the incident was the perfect opportunity to open up a broader discussion about the breed.

“I thought it was a great opportunity to explore this more deeply,” he said.

So Fleming contacted Charity Dean, the director of the Civil Rights, Inclusion and Opportunity Office in Detroit.

A d

“Wendell really said he wanted to have a serious conversation about the breed,” Dean said.

Let’s Talk About Race, a discussion centered on the history and roots of racial discrimination in Detroit, will be held at the bar.

“I don’t expect the world to change overnight, of course, but I can’t wait for everyone to start coming together,” Fleming said.

Let’s Talk Race takes place on November 21 at 3:30 p.m. at the Checker Bar at 124 Cadillac Place.
