Why do I need to explain where my funds are coming from?
As part of your verification, the organisation that requested your Thirdfort check may ask you to complete a Source of Funds task. This is a short questionnaire which will ask you to account for where your money is coming from for the gift. By law, when dealing with large amounts of money, solicitors and law firms have to understand where that money comes from.
