Almost all banks lay in fear of an investigation over money-laundering. You’d look at an account that suddenly jumps up and is covering a large substantial amount of cash that it typically didn’t cover before....red flag. This might anger folks, but the reality is that money-laundering is a big mess in the US, and we made stupid laws to go against it.
I might have accepted that excuse all the way up until the bank manager said, WE BELIEVE YOU SHOULD NOT BE SELLING GUNS and PARTS ON THE INTERNET.
I would submit the opposite is true (imho). I would further submit those banks which are not involved in money-laundering are the exception, and not the rule, currently. Wachovia went down from money-laundering (though we were told something different), but that was one small blimp on the screen. Since Wachovia, the problem of money-laundering has become the general rule by which all banks play (imho), not that all activity by banks is illegal, but instead what was once consider illegal is now considered the norm. Money-laundering, I would submit, is considered the norm.
Next comes illegal freezing of assets of law-abiding citizens to force behavioral modifications. boa is the first red flag to achieving this end (imho), and is a new illegality which is now being considered as normal. The times, we live in, are in fact lawless times. The only things not taking place are what will take place. What will take place are the things which are an OUTRAGE. OUTRAGES start conflicts. Americans smell the signs of things to come and are preparing. Smell of things to come. Exercise of Second Amendment. Actions and reactions.
I’m a BOA client by default (Merrill Lynch clients absorbed by BOA).
Seriously, the best custom service ever. They have saved my account from theft twice.
