Banks Can Legally Steal Customer Funds From Private Checking Accounts

Of recent, when withdrawing cash from an ATM, the daily allotted amount has decreased with some banks, thereby forcing the customer to go into the branch and extract the difference with a teller. At this point, according to anonymous informants, the customer is taken into a backroom to be questioned as to why they want the cash, what they are purchasing with the cash, why they are not choosing to use a debit card or another form of digital trade to make the purchase. These questions are not only intrusive, they are illegal.

Some anonymous sources have said that banking representatives who conduct the integrations are directed to keep a record of customer responses on an online application that will be sent to the FBI in conjunction with Patriot Act mandates on tracking banking activity.

While American citizens sit on the fence about whether or not they even subscribe to a banking collapse in the US, globalists like George Soros are investing heavily in gold./

I work for a financial institution

I do IT work for a credit union, and have been in banking since about 2008. Nowhere I've worked does anything like taking someone to a back room to question them. Also I've never heard of a bank or credit union that fingerprints account holders.

I could comment about what kinds of things we do to comply with the Patriot Act, Dodd-Frank, and so forth, but I probably should wait until I'm not at work to do so. ;) BUT, the article's description of these practices point to either Chase or Bank of America, sounds like something they'd do.

Stop Depositing Extra $ in the Banks

George Soros just recently took all of his money out of the stock market. He's investing in Gold and other precious metals.

We should do the same. And, find a place other than a bank to store it.

What in god's name does

What in god's name does anyone put their money in a bank for? .45% interest on your deposits? lol! You can find more loose change on the street. For the convenience of using a debit card or writing a check? And the cost of all the fees for that "convenience"?

I haven't had a bank account for years. I get a paper check every pay day - like everyone did just 15 years ago - and I go to the bank it was drawn on or to Wal-mart and cash it. Then it stays in my safe at home, along with my silver, and right beside my shotgun.

Nobody has ever made money off of having a bank account. I laugh at all the commercials about how you can have access to your money 24/7 with this online app or this mobile phone app. Hey, you know how else you can have access to you money 24/7? Keep it at home!

People kill me.

You Just Used A Bank to Get Cash

How can you scoff?

My bank accounts, checking and savings, have an average of $150 in them, just so I have a debit card for an occasional purchase. But when I need to deposit a check so I can transfer it to my brokerage account, pay my bills, or buy more metals, it has to pass through the bank, just as yours did.

I, too, was very surprised last time I withdrew the measly amount of $2,000 (again, not kept in those accounts, but just passing through), to be questioned by the teller.

20 years ago, the same bank okay'd a $20,000 check by phone for me from 400 miles away, to satisfy an escrow company, based on my length of time as a customer.

It's one thing if they do it to make sure you are who you say you are and not a theif, and quite another to make the Feds happy. This is what happens when the government gets in between the customer and the bank.

No Cash at Pizza Purchase

I bought a "slice" and punched that I wanted $20 back. I must have punched the wrong button (it was DARK inside that little box thingy) and it only gave me $10 back.

I told guy I must have punched the wrong button cuz I thought I had punched the $20 "cash back" so could I run the card through and get my other $10?

The clerk asked me which bank it was, and I told him, and he said, "no" that bank only allows cash with the purchase on debits.

NaturalisimoMENTE I said, well then, how about if I "return" the pizza, and you can "uncharge me" for that, and then I can "re-buy" the slice again and get the other $10? He said, that was fine and I did that.

Not exactly the same, but whatever.

CREDIT UNION

A member owned "bank"(aka credit union) will not try to scam people since it's in everyone best interest to NOT lose money through risky investments.

Tools of war are not always obvious. The worst weapon is an idea planted in the mind of man. Prejudices can kill, suspicion can destroy, and a thoughtless, frightened search for a scapegoat has an everlasting fallout all of its own.

I too belong to a credit union

They even reimburse me for ATM fees up to 4 times a month!

I have something better

i have done this on several

i have done this on several occasions, in fear of wanting more cash on hand and less virtual credit.

I was never interrogated personally. If you want to remove over 10k in one swoop (if they even allow such amount to be withdrawn on any given day without advanced notice), i believe you have to fill out some type of federal notification form for doing so. (same went for depositing it back).

I have experienced tellers cut the available daily withdraw maximum in half. This was back in the fall of 2011 when BofA had swirling rumors encircling it that it was severely under-capitalized and could possibly default by year's end.

I can imagine if someone pulled me to a back room to ask me why (even though i knew most of the employees by name and they most likely would have no interest in doing this). My immediate and only response would be "this isnt any of your business. im finding a new bank asap. lets go close my account right now". I dont think that they would be very happy with the consequences of their actions in that case.

People you had better read this!

Know the truth! See how banks make you their slave!

This is absolutely true!

We tried to get some money out and were not questioned but interrogated and threatened. On that particular visit we were unable to withdraw any money. We were held for nearly ten minutes. So we enacted more stealth methods to complete the withdrawal the following week.

UM?

Why not take your money across the street and tell BOA to kiss off?

They're all the same.

I don't really use banks unless absolutely necessary. Unfortunately, there are many things that must be done at a bank. I prefer the TBTF for the little banking I do because the are, well, TBTF.
