# Fetch Kaoshi Info: Validate your customer's beneficiary

Your customer wants to send money to someone in another country. Kaoshi refers to the person the customer is sending funds to as the poster's beneficiary.

Kaoshi refers to your customer as the poster because you are initiating (i.e., posting) an offer for them.

The person the customer wishes to send money to is their beneficiary.

Your customer’s beneficiary must already have a verified Kaoshi account. Please get your customer’s beneficiary to create one if they have not already.

The fetch Kaoshi info API endpoint allows you to verify your poster's beneficiary account.

In the curl HTTPS get request below, replace $postersBeneficiary with the Kaoshi handle of the poster's beneficiary.

For testing purposes use janeth-usa-receiver@example.com as the poster's beneficiary.

curl --location --request GET 'https://app.sandbox.kaoshinetwork.com/api/api/v1/user/fetch-kaoshi-info/$postersBeneficiary' \
--header 'Accept: application/json' \
--header 'Authorization: Bearer secret-api-token'
