THE PROCESS OF REVIEWING AND ACCEPTING NAMES FOR THE CONFIDENTIAL LIST
Any IPDA member can submit a name for consideration to be included in the Confidential List. This can be done by providing relevant details and evidence of questionable practices by the seller.
Notice to Members
Once a name is accepted and added to the Confidential List, all IPDA members are promptly notified. They receive alerts and information about the identified sellers whose practices may be questionable or fraudulent.
Fair and Balanced Review
The submitted names are carefully reviewed by the IPDA’s designated committee responsible for maintaining the Confidential List. They assess the information provided and conduct a thorough evaluation to ensure a fair and balanced approach.
In addition to listing sellers on the Confidential List, the IPDA takes appropriate actions, within legal boundaries, to address and prevent fraudulent and illegal practices in the future. This may involve cooperation with relevant authorities or providing guidance and support to members who have been affected.
Consideration and Acceptance
The committee considers the validity and credibility of the submitted information and determines whether the seller’s practices align with the established criteria for inclusion on the Confidential List. This process ensures that only genuinely concerning cases are included.
