HSBC Capital Control!

Woman in Britain went to her local Swindon HSBC branch to withdraw £10,000 cash which apparently had balance of £50,000. Here is her story from the link:

HSBC will not let me take out anything over £1,000 cash over the counter. I gave them warning, but they say they must know what I will use it for - they want to see evidence of hotel bookings etc.

In short, they refuse to give me my cash. HSBC say it is new internal rules to help prevent money laundering. But for example, what if I want to buy a £5,000 car? It said I’d have to put down a deposit and show them the receipt first.

I find this outrageous and an invasion of privacy – why do HSBC get to decide what I do with my money?

In the meantime I can take out only £1,000 per day until I shut my account which I shall do and all that time they will be investing my money and gaining interest from it.

Immoral funding of Military Industrial Complex by Federal Reserve and US taxation system must stop!!!! End illegal/unconstitutional wars! Preserve US currency!
