Make sure that you have previously added a blacklist in the Matchlist page of your Dashboard and follow the steps:

  1. Select the blacklist. A menu will pop up.
  2. Select any item you want to match. You can match against any field such as country, business name, corporate tax id, ssn, date of birth and anything else that can be compared to a Unit21 field.
  3. Select "fuzzy match" if you want an "approximate match" for the item (i.e Lucky Corp would get flagged if Luckies Corp is in the list).
