    This one came as enough of a surprise to me that it seemed worth sharing. I’ve long been aware that there are limits on cash transactions taking place at banks beyond which the deal has to be reported to the IRS. You run into the same thing at casinos, though I have never won anywhere near enough money to need to worry about reporting it. This is an annoying, but I will agree, necessary function which used to allow law enforcement to track down drug dealers and organized crime entities who were dealing in large, untraceable cash deals. But...
  • Bank Claims Georgia Woman Somehow Owes It $300 Million

    Bank error not in your favor, right? Like in Monopoly? You know how the Banks are constantly screwing over the People, just because they get off on it sexually? Here's a good example of that: Ann Wiley is trying to get to the bottom of the error, but no one knows how it happened. She says three separate instances of $100 million charges to her account have frozen her assets. Sun Trust Bank told Wiley the problem was with the Department of Revenue. Even though this is obviously a glitch that seems like it should be easily solvable, it has...

    So exactly how did the big banks in Cyprus get into so much trouble? Well, they have been doing exactly what hundreds of other large banks all over the U.S. and Europe have been doing. They have been gambling with our money. In particular, the big banks in Cyprus made huge bets on Greek sovereign debt which ended up failing.But what happened in Cyprus is just the tip of the iceberg. All over the planet major financial institutions are being incredibly reckless with client money. They are leveraged to the hilt and they have transformed the global financial system into...

    Don't be surprised when the global elite confiscate money from your bank account one day. They are already very clearly telling you that they are going to do it. Dutch Finance Minister Jeroen Dijsselbloem is the president of the Eurogroup - an organization of eurozone finance ministers that was instrumental in putting together the Cyprus "deal" - and he has said publicly that what has just happened in Cyprus will serve as a blueprint for future bank bailouts. What that means is that when the chips are down, they are going to come after YOUR money. So why should anyone...

    The latest executive order (EO) emanating from the White House October 9 now claims the power to freeze all bank accounts and stop any related financial transactions that a “sanctioned person” may own or try to perform — all in the name of “Iran Sanctions.” Titled an “Executive Order from the President regarding Authorizing the Implementation of Certain Sanctions…” the order says that if an individual is declared by the president, the secretary of state, or the secretary of the treasury to be a “sanctioned person,” he (or she) will be unable to obtain access to his accounts, will be...

    Two weeks ago a dear friend of mine decided to file for bankruptcy. As part of gathering the fees she went to her bank (which in the spirit of protecting the guilty, I won't name, let's just call it "Pursue") to close her accounts and get a money order. She closed out her CD, checking account, savings account and surrendered her ATM/Debit card and Pursue credit card. This week she gets a notice from Pursue. Not only did they fail to actually close her credit card account, they made an auto-payment to another bank. Now they want her to send...

    Email scammers tout assets of deposed Arab leaders (Reuters) - Scam emails supposedly from close aides or relatives of deposed Arab leaders are offering a huge chunk of their assets if recipients hand over their bank details or pay a fee up front. "The quantity of attacks of this sort that we detect is enormous," said Chester Wisniewski, a senior security adviser at Sophos, which uses sophisticated spam filters to identify scam emails. In one email, a scammer pretends to be the wife of deposed Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi. She says she has managed to escape to Tunisia and is...

    In the middle of last month, the Bank of China quietly announced a startling new bank account available to America citizens. At one of three Bank of China branches in the United States–two in New York and one in Los Angeles–an American can walk in, open an account and convert their grubby dollars into the currency of the hottest, and arguably the most important, economy in the world, the Chinese renminbi. To get a better sense of what this is all about, I went to the Bank of China's main branch in Manhattan on 5th Avenue and 48th Street. The...

He had previously denied the existence of any account but judges investigating a separate scandal...

    It was confirmed on September 18 that North Korea asked to open a Woori Bank account in Gaesong Industrial Complex as an outlet for escaping U.S. financial sanctions imposed on the country. At a meeting with related parties including the Ministry of Unification, the Ministry of Finance and Economy, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade, and the National Intelligence Service, the government discussed whether to accept North’s request, but failed to make a decision yet. According to Grand National Party lawmaker Kwon Young-se and other sources, North Korean Central Special Zone Development Management called on Woori Bank’s Gaesong branch...

This information comes at the same time as a scandal is unfolding over the North Korean regime's transfer of a considerable part of its bank accounts to Russia, skirting American sanctions. Although these accusations are only coming from NGOs right now, they may become the case of the...

    Vietnam already shut down N.K. accounts in past few weeks: ICG Seoul director WASHINGTON, Aug. 22 (Yonhap) -- Vietnamese banks have already closed down North Korean accounts over the past few weeks, most likely forcing Pyongyang to move its money to its last remaining haven, Russia, said Peter Beck, head of the International Crisis Group's Seoul office, on Tuesday. Beck said Nigel Cowie, general manager of North Korea's Daedong Credit Bank in Pyongyang, e-mailed him last week and said Vietnamese banks have shut down Daedong's and other North Korea-held accounts. Daedong expected such a move by Vietnam after U.S. Treasury...

    To whom it may concern: I am writing to thank you for bouncing my check with which I endeavored to pay my plumber last month. By my calculations, three nanoseconds must have elapsed between his depositing the check and the arrival in my account of the funds needed to honor it. I refer, of course, to the automatic monthly transfer of funds from my modest savings account, an arrangement which, I admit, has been in place for only thirty-one years. You are to be commended for seizing that brief window of opportunity, and also for debiting my account $30 by...

    A RETIRED banker living in Switzerland spent 10 years helping Iraqi President Saddam Hussein hide millions of dollars via a bank account under the name of Satan, Britain's Sunday Times has reported. Elio Borradori, 75, funnelled millions of dollars in "commissions" and "consultancy fees" into companies controlled by Saddam's appointees, operating through Panama, the Bahamas and Switzerland, according to the report. US officials estimate Saddam channelled between $10 billion and $18 billion into accounts around the world, which must now be tracked down. The British government today estimated Saddam's riches could total as much as $33 billion. One of Saddam's...
