CDotD – A Good Clue A Transaction Will Go Wrong

Am trying to help a pre-existing client resolve a problem with a transaction gone bad and am going through some of the correspondence, when I come across this sentence:

“We would ask that you provide your custodian, Mr. Ding Dong (emphasis added)… with the appropriate instructions…”

MR. DING DONG? Seriously?! Am I just being racist in saying that a name like that immediately raises at least a mini-red flag in my mind?
