The Department of Treasury flagged a California man’s bank account — because his dog’s name, Dash, was similar to a term used for ISIS in the Islamic world, Daesh.

The alarm bells went off after Bruce Francis, who suffers from multiple sclerosis, put “for Dash” in the memo line of his monthly payment to his dog walker.

But earlier this month, he found out that his check hadn’t gone through.

“The dog walker comes to me and says, ‘I haven’t gotten your check,’” Francis told KTVU San Francisco.

“I looked in my Chase account and there was a message saying, ‘Please explain what ‘for Dash’ means,’” he said.

The Office of Foreign Assets Control, run by the Treasury, confirmed the hold-up was triggered by the nine-year-old pit bull mix’s potentially explosive name.

“I thought to myself, ‘Great, they’re stopping the world’s stupidest terrorist,” Francis said.

Banks are required to turn over any suspicious financial transactions to the Treasury Department.

Francis said he’s glad to know the US is remaining vigilant in fighting ISIS.

“I think anything we can do to stop the terrorists and the funding of terrorists, let’s do it,” he said. “And if it means an inconvenience to me and my dog walker, then that’s a price I’m totally going to pay.”
