What Happened When I Tried to Take $1500 Cash Out of Bank of America-Bank Holiday is Near




A funny thing happened on my way to writing on a very controversial topic. It just so happens that I inadvertently made my own news. To those who expected to read how the criminal elite are going stop Donald Trump short of singular assassination plot, that story will be printed on this site, tomorrow.

Yesterday, I went to Bank of America to withdraw $1500 cash. You would of thought I had a sign around my neck saying that I was a heroin dealer.

The teller went and got a bank officer who began to question me:

Bank Officer: Sir, what are you using the money for?

Me: I am using it for a legal personal matter. Beyond that, it is none of your business.

Bank Officer; Sir, we can put a hold on your account. 

Me: Mr. Bank Officer, I will remove my entire account and deposit it to another bank if I do not have my money in five minutes and I want my money in $100 bills. 

Bank Officer: Sir, your threats will not work here and if you are not cooperative and fill out this form, I will call the police and notifiy the IRS. (He wanted me to fill out a Cash Transaction Report which is not required unless your withdrawing $10,000  or more)

Me: Mr. Bank Officer, I refuse to fill out your report because it is not required unless I withdraw $10,000 and your may call who you want…. You obviously do not know the law and who I am. Between my writing and broadcasting, I reach over 2 million people per month. I would say that statistically about 400,000 people have B of A accounts who listen to me or read my articles. Before the end of this month, you will see sizable withdrawals based upon my recantation of this conversations in the public domain. By the way, I am recording this. 

The bank officer walked away and disappeared and then came back in a few moments. He instructed the teller to process my request. 

Bank Officer: I have reviewed your account history and you have been an excellent customer. You are obviously using the money for honorable purposes. I apologize for any misunderstanding.

Me: Thank you. The purposes for the use of my money, is none of your business, it is a matter for law enforcement. You should think about this when you try to bully the next guy. 

I am certain that the threat of my reach and potential action against Bank of America did not influence bank officer’s decision to honor my request. I am sure he called his boss and that they have now filed a Suspicious Activity Report (SAR), and my business affairs will come under the scrutiny of the IRS and possibly the FBI. I have no doubt that they would love to turn me into the next Bundy family member of the banking world. I will have more to say on this topic later in the article.

An Interesting Aside

I requested that my money withdrawal be disbursed in one hundred dollar bills. They had one, count it, one, one hundred dollar bill in the entire bank.

I asked the teller if the bank was making good on the rumor that they were phasing out one hundred dollar bills in their incremental move towards a cashless society. The $10 per hour teller said she they did not know what I was talking about. At that point, and being a little worked up, I asked the teller which arm she was going receive the chip so she could continue buying and selling and working for B of A? She had no idea what I was talking about.

“Forgive them Father, for they know not what they do.” I had images of my Lord and Savior chasing the banksters from the Temple.

If I only had the courage of my Lord.

If I only had the courage of my Lord.

I  have arranged for a transfer of the funds from  the impacted account.

Before you move any money, you need to read the following… or you risk going to jail:

Be Careful Who You Speak With

If the Feds do show up to speak with me, I will not be speaking with them about anything of substance. When Martha Stewart was accused of insider trading, Stewart tried to explain away the concerns. That was her big mistake. She was sent to jail for making false statements to federal officials. Note, they can lie to you and try to trick you and the criminal elite have made that legal. But if THEY say you have misled them, or left out one detail, you go to prison and it is your word vs. their word.

When and if the FEDS show up at my door. I will be taping and recording myself saying “I invoke my 5th Amendment right against self-incrimination and reserve my right to be represented by an attorney for all questioning. If I am not under arrest, you need to leave my property and I will arrange a meeting with my attorney.” If you say any more, you are probably going to jail.

Oh, they will threaten you that you making things hard on yourself and that “things will go easier if you cooperate”. Your answer , and the only thing you should say is “I will fully cooperate with you when my attorney is present and since we all have to abide the Constitution, get the hell out of my house”.


Structuring, SAR’s and CTR’s

Previously, I mentioned the bank probably filed a SAR on me. and they going to be investigating me for Structuring. Structuring carries a very long prison sentence to go with a hefty fine. The Federal government will automatically investigate any cash withdrawal of $10,000 or more from your account.To remain in compliance with the law, financial institutions must obtain personal identification, information about the transaction and the social security number of the person conducting the transaction.

Technically, there is no federal law prohibiting the use of large amounts of cash. However, a CTR must be filed in ALL cases of cash transaction regardless of the reason underlying the transaction. This means your cash transaction will be on the radar. The Feds will automatically investigate you drug dealing, enterprise corruption and/or money laundering. And they can put a lien on everything you own during the investigative process. Remember, keep your mouth shut!

There will undoubtedly be some geniuses whose math ability will tell them that all they have to do is to withdraw $9,999.99 and the bank and the guardian of the bank, the federal government will be none the wiser. It is not quite that simple. If over a period of 12 months, you show a pattern of cash withdrawals which fall under the $10,000 threshold of a Cash Transaction Report requirement, you will be convicted of Structuring and go to jail, every time. Therefore, I do not dare go back to any bank with my name on it and make a similar withdrawal. So long as I do not go to a bank in the next 12 months and make a similar withdrawal, the government cannot make a case against me Structuring because it requires multiple withdrawals over a discreet period of time.

Structuring transactions to prevent a CTR from being reported can result in imprisonment for not more than five years and/or a fine of up to $250,000. If structuring involves more than $100,000 in a twelve month period or is performed while violating another law of the federal government (e.g. money laundering, drug dealing, etc.), the penalty is doubled.

What Should You Do With Your Cash In the Bank?

Before, I suggest what one should do with their cash in the bank, I want to make the readers fully aware of how the banking system, along with the muscle provided by the Federal government, have made definitive plans to steal your cash in the bank.

  1. Treasury Secretary Jack Lew and the UK’s Chancellor of the Exchequer, George Osborne, on November 10, 2014, ran a joint exercise simulating how they would prop up a large bank (e.g. Bank of America) with operations in both countries that has landed itself in trouble. Also taking part in the “bank failure drill”, which included a cyber attack upon several banks, was Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen and Bank of England Governor Mark Carney, and the heads of a large number of other regulators, in a meeting hosted by the U.S. Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation.

2. As of November 16, 2014, your bank account has been collateralized against the derivatives debt. Hence, you had, in 2008, former CEO of Goldman Sachs and the Secretary of Treasury, Hank Paulson, telling a closed session of Congress that if they did not authorize the bailouts, there would be tanks in the streets in an ultimately, REVOLUTION! This was necessitated by the credit swap derivatives Ponzi scheme and the debacle that would follow the collapse of the dollar.

3. Further, the bankruptcy reform laws stemming from the Bankruptcy Reform Act of 2005, have given the credit swap derivatives counter-parties preference over all other creditors and customers of the bankrupt financial institution, including FDIC insured depositors. This is why the G20 effectively stole your money on the morning of November 16, 2014! On this action taken by the G20 nations, your bank account is no longer considered to be money. The bankers holding the bag on the credit swap derivatives will move to the head of the FDIC compensation line. In other words, if the banks are collapsed, your money will be used to pay down the derivatives debt. Therefore, the regulations requiring that your money be insured by the FDIC are no longer in effect! This devaluation of “money to something other than money gives what the experts call “super priority” in terms of the line of succession from which to collect bankruptcy monies.

The Bank-Bail-ins, or outright cash confiscations are coming. If you do nothing and leave your money in the bank, you and your money will soon be parted. If you recklessly try and withdraw your cash, you and your money will soon be parted and you will be in prison. So what can you do?

As the owner of DH Communication LLC, among other things, we own the exclusive rights to The Common Sense Show. We made a collective decision to primarily advertise for business interests that fits our chartered purpose, namely, to help people prepare to survive what is coming. Therefore, we place a premium on accepting advertising from business entities that increase the odds of survival. You would be wise to avoid banking prison that we all live under and make direct purchases of items that you will need to survive the coming economic calamity.

If you make purchases directly from your bank account for items you will need, you do not have to worry about Federal banking laws. I know that your NSA threat matrix score will go up, but it is the cost of doing business in a chaotic and corrupt country. Before the crash comes, you will need to take care of these six areas.

  1. You will need precious metals- Steve Quayle and Renaissance Precious Metals because your cash will soon be worthless or confiscated. When the cash is gone, you will need a medium of exchange and that will be gold and silver.
  2. You will need survival supplies (e.g. water filters, night vision goggles) when  an economic collapse will lead to rioting hordes. This is why I shop at Readymaderesources.com
  3. You will need to store food, so I use Numanna.
  4. In a societal meltdown that will follow a banking collapse, you will need a means to protect your family and your resources. That means you will need guns and gun accessories. For this service I use DETCTactical.  And you need to be trained in both tactics and how to use and maintain your weapons.
  5. You will need to stockpile medicine. If you are unable to do that, I would recommend going to Dr. Ted Broer’s Health Masters site and ordering natural products which act in the same capacity without the side-effects. Ted has successfully treated myself for two maladies and has had great results with Doug Hagmann as well. Ted is not yet an advertiser, on my site, but will soon be. When you contact Health Masters, mention Dave Hodges, or coupon code DAVE5  and receive 5% off your purchase price.
  6. The Patriot community needs a social media platform to interact in and to have access to topics which can serve to educate all the millions of people that Donald Trump is awakening. These people will need a place to grow and to learn how to take their place among a growing group of activists. FACEBOOK, with their censorship and spying, is not that place. Seen.life is that place. No spying, no censorship, no selling of your personal information.

Of course, everyone is free to use whatever vendor they choose. However, you need to cover these six critical areas in order to enhance your survival.

    It’s a moment like that Dave that drives the arrow of what is coming home to an individual.
    I am somewhat speechless because it was only $1,500. You are obviously on a special list which raises a red flag for any withdrawal far under the $10,000 limit.

    I went with someone to their bank two months ago to withdrawal $4,000 so they could buy a car. I was helping them find a good car for that amount of money. I wanted to see if the bank questioned them or gave them a hard time. I was gladly surprised that they asked no questions and gave this person all $100 bills. The teller seemed very young and naive, which was probably a blessing.

    God bless you sir.

    Imagine if the SARs that have been filled out over the past decades were released… names of tellers, FINCEN thugs, and innocent victims made public.

    My fiance used to work for BOA. She said the corporation was “evil” in her words.

  3. Jack Russell March 25, 2016 at 7:19 am

    Bank of America and everyone of the banks are criminal enterprises. Make no doubt about it. Your best advice is move all your banks accounts to local credit unions and the sooner you take that step the better. Have the money wired to the credit union so you don’t run afoul of these rules Dave speaks of or they will try to get you. I seldom agree with Dave but this is one time we are in full agreement. Bank of America is the worst bank in the country.

  4. Warren March 25, 2016 at 7:20 am

    A couple of weeks ago I took out $2700 from my local credit union, (I needed cash because I was having some work done on the house, and would get %10 off), The teller had no interest in what it was for, all he asked me was how I wanted it, I said I wanted $100 bills. Some months ago I closed out my B of A account, because they added a $25.00 month fee added, I took the $5,700.00 in cash, they were not happy, but they gave it $100.00 bills. My recommendation is that if you need to “bank”, put your money in a credit union.

  5. kk March 25, 2016 at 7:22 am

    My boyfriend tried to cash a $1300 check on Wednesday. They gave him $100 that day, deposited $100 on Thursday, the the rest was deposited today

  6. Bill March 25, 2016 at 7:27 am

    Hasn’t happened here yet, but I’m in a blue state.

  7. Charles March 25, 2016 at 7:29 am

    You have my sympathies, Dave. I think I’d pre-emptively get myself lawyered up if you haven’t already done so. Unfortunately, there is nothing we can do about monetary policy short of armed revolution…which I’m sure will be coming at some point in the future. I have to remind myself daily that everything is in God’s capable Hands, that He has a plan, and He’s in control. Good job getting in those weasels faces!

    I’d also think about switching from a bank to a reputable credit union. It might offer some temporary protection against the changes that are sure to come.

    It’s stories like these that make me glad I invested in that gold dredge several years ago!

  8. Jo Se March 25, 2016 at 7:45 am

    I have disliked banks since I was young and saw many times how poorly they treated the average person. I prefer credit unions, but now am avoiding one of the largest ones that in my opinion has become involved with a big money individual who is used to taking over companies.

  9. Jim March 25, 2016 at 7:46 am

    Now that you mention it…. I get a SS check each month for around $1300. The day it goes in I withdraw either $1000 or $1100. Each month.
    After 10 months I’ve exceeded the $10,000 structuring limit!!!
    Maybe it’s because that is all the money I deal with that they don’t bother me? So far I haven’t been bothered, but that does not mean it won’t change!

  10. Lil March 25, 2016 at 7:58 am

    Just a side story Dave, a week ago, the computers went down at a sister credit union branch I frequent. They told us we could deposit but there was no way to credit us with te transaction or provide withdrawals or info until it was fixed.
    Ok I get that.. But then the bank lady said to the customers that the atm was limited to $50 transactions. Hmmmmm..
    So the puters down, but still the ATMs can give $50 to each person with no info to base it off of ? Can you say Conditioning?

  11. Karen Malcolm March 25, 2016 at 8:05 am


    My bank was a small regional bank in Colorado, it has gotten larger with mergers but only covers five western states. We traveled to the east coast last summer and fall and took cash for backup just in case plastic could not be processed. I asked the bank manager for their SAR threshold and it was considerably less at $3,000, Some banks may have different rules. I know mine does but that is the cost of living in a sparsely populated area. I also had to alert them to my travel itinerary so they would not lock done the debit care for fraud. Steve Quayle had an interesting Q alert about the changes in credit with Chase.

    Dave, thank you for this “heads up” article. I have a question. We have sold our home on contract and use the checks we receive to get cash from the bank. Is this putting us on the radar? Would a credit union be safer than banks?


  14. pete March 25, 2016 at 8:40 am

    Omg…that happened to me At First Texas Bank Last week. .. only $1052. 54. That’s All they had to get the Bank Manger to say it was Ok….. Wtf…… Time is Short

  15. James Stamulis March 25, 2016 at 9:09 am

    Man i love the way you handled that bank asswipe. It infuriates me that they think they have the right to know what you or anyone wants to do with their own money. I wish every state in the union with pass laws saying gold and silver can now be used to buy anything you want like i believe Utah has done.

  16. Marie March 25, 2016 at 9:19 am

  17. Marshal Scot March 25, 2016 at 9:19 am

    The people who are planning to purchase silver need to be warned that it takes 500 (five hundred) ounces of pure silver to build 1 (one) TOMAHAWK MISSILE. Gotta have that conductivity! Executive Order 13603 states that under times of “emergency” war,etc. the US government will confiscate any commodity they need. If you have the nerve to deal in highly black market commodities in the face of 1-800- SNITCH lines, etc., More power to you. I just believe people need to be aware of this before they make these decisions! Sincerely, Marshal Scot

    Hi Dave,
    Just as I read this article my wife and I were discussing a lack of selection in many or our favorite grocery stores in the Bryan/College Station, Texas area. IF you are not familiar with the Kent Hovind story you should check him out. A pastor who taught against evolution was sent to prison for structuring and then they dropped the charges against him after letting him sit in prison for 10 years. I dropped BoA 12 or more years ago and started doing business with a local state bank. The same place I buy my guns. The bank president is a Class III Firearms dealer. I love small town Texas.

  20. laura m. March 25, 2016 at 9:48 am

    I’d never do biz with mega banks like Bank of America, Chase, Wells Fargo, etc. in the first place. I use two credit unions. Also. get cash back at grocery stores if needed and go inside and get cash off and on. I would quit any bank that acted like idiots and Q a customer- totally uncalled for!!. Why are patriots using these XXXX (cursed) banks anyway?? Local community bank for checking, (senior perks, free checks, etc) and credit unions for CD’s and savings is way to go. Move checking and savings and stop writing checks except to move accounts. (CD’s must expire to get interest); then, wait two weeks, drain account of the x-bank, then close it out in person, after checks clear. Change your direct deposit (SS, 401k, etc) right away when new account is opened or several days later. I hope this info. is simple enough to “divorce the bad guys” and move on. New bank has temporary checks if needed, ask for debit card. I know patriots that still are w/ Wells F, etc. and I have warned them to get the H out before. So, why the H are they still doing biz with this ilk?

  21. Gary Brown March 25, 2016 at 10:00 am


    I’ve had two similar experiences while drawing large sums of money out of my account in Oklahoma. Your advice is sound and ALL American Citizens should take notice. My withdrawals were for legal land purchases and I’m sure the paths was tracked to the next accounts. I was made to feel very uncomfortable in the withdrawal processes and asked the Manager if he had taken a moment to watch the entertaining local commercials presented to the public by his bank? How caring the staff is and the down home personal feel a customer would get while making banking transactions. The advertisement went as far as to insinuate that you would become one of the “family” by banking there. After my experiences, most certainly not any “family” I have need to be a part off!

    Well I was treated poorly and after the second large transaction removed my money and closed the account. Needless to say I have a very low opinion of this bank. I do not have the recognition you have worked very hard to gain but I tell everyone the story hoping to save them the frustration, aggravation just plain embarrassment of transacting bank business with this bank.

    Keep up the good fight.


  22. Karl March 25, 2016 at 10:01 am

    Wow, Dave. If I were that bank teller, I would think you were a little combative.

    They asked me that once (in a kind and curious way). I said I was going shopping. That was all. Walked out with my money.

    As for the “chip” comment: I think she may have a good story to tell her husband over dinner.

    Anyway, I see your point about the privacy, but these folks are just doing their job. Take it up with the main office, not the person at the counter.


  23. TimeTraveler March 25, 2016 at 10:07 am

    It’s a shame our society has come to this because of a few ruthless psychopaths that seem bent on controlling humanity. It is coming down in my belief that one must stand up to these thugs or die trying. That is called VALOR. We were born into this world as free men and women as our God given right. They want to control the human race with perpetual wars, and to eventually collapse the entire economic system and depopulate the world.

    Time is growing very short. They will collapse this system. Our time is now to take a stand. If you don’t, you might as well get in line as the Jews did during WWII and be led into the gas chambers. Hit them where it counts, economically, as Dave has said. Take all funds out of their banks, and do not do business at their corporate retail establishments. It is time to march on Washington with and let these thugs know what we know and we wont take it anymore.

    If that fails, then it is time to take up arms, for I cherish my FREEDOM too much to let these thugs take it away!

  24. Jim March 25, 2016 at 10:44 am

    If your money is in BoA, Chase or any of the big banks I fear your money might not be excess able. I gave my mom and Dad money and the bank call me and wanted to know were I got the money and why I put money in their account. Its coming Dave and is closer to collapse.

  25. Janie March 25, 2016 at 10:51 am

    I had a similar incident. I went to my bank, not B of A, and asked to withdraw $1,500.00. The teller went to the manager and they both came back and told me they did not have enough cash to make the transaction. I was floored, it is a bank and banks have money, so I thought! The manager told me to come back in a few hours and then I could get the $1,500. I came back a few hours later and they did have it……….. all small bills. It was during lunch time so perhaps they were waiting to collect enough cash deposits to make the transaction within two hours. This was a smaller bank but it obviously doesn’t matter it can happen at any bank these days.
    Scary Stuff!!!!

  26. Miranda March 25, 2016 at 10:53 am

    I had a similar experience. I went to withdrawal $5,000.00 to repay my father for helping me with legal fees for child support/custody case at Wells Fargo Bank February 2016. They questioned me extensively and finally acquiesced as I was very polite and patient. Then when I went up to the teller to get my funds (I was being questioned in the office of a bank employee), it was told to me that they didn’t have that amount of cash in the bank! I was told that they would wave the fee of a cashiers check and give that to me instead. I agreed, as my father was expecting the money and I really didn’t know what else to do. I was really surprised they didn’t have any cash there. I honestly think they were lying.

  27. km March 25, 2016 at 10:54 am

    Not bad Hodges, most people these days don’t have $15 much less 1,500 to withdraw! Might want to take many preppers advice and do with less!!!

  28. hbeachrealist March 25, 2016 at 11:11 am


    I am a believer in PMs. Today, on Alex’s show, Harvey Dent and Schiff were on his show. Dent says gold is going down to 700 bucks. What do you think about Dent and his predictions? Also, have you listened to Bo Polny’s gold and silver forecast for this year?

  30. Loren Hoover March 25, 2016 at 11:40 am

    Brother Dave
    I just received an letter from SS Office that I dropped my withholding from 15% to 7% (I did not) It reminded me of something Old Brush did in the early 1990’s using the I.R.S. giving more money back on the check to help the econimy then you owe more TAXES next year. You might check with the old folks that love you program to see if any of them have also received the same letter.
    Love like a Brother

  31. George Bailey March 25, 2016 at 1:32 pm

    Thanks for posting Dave. Appreciate the advice if the Feds come knocking and what to tell them. I think we’ve all had run-ins with banks. They act as if our money is their money. Oh the stories I could tell! But not enough space. I’ll leave you with this. I was writing out the check for my father’s safety deposit box renewal recently and noticed in the fine print that our Bank, Wells Fargo, does not insure the contents of the box nor does the FDIC. So people should keep that in mind if they are storing any valuables in the bank’s so-called “safety box.”

    I think each bank is different. I have a friend at work who just got his tax return deposited in his checking account. The next day he went to his local bank and withdrew all of it $4000.00 with no problem at all. In and out in less than 5 minutes. Took it in small bills too….I think each experience is alone by its self.. Let’s not get paranoid folks….:)

    Rather than invoking the 5th Amendment (the constitution is, if you recall, suspended) I recommend the following statement: i am a private citizen, i do not consent to this questioning and i do not wish to accept any of the privileges you may offer. Please leave now.

  35. Brickie March 25, 2016 at 2:19 pm

    I ran into similar situations. I was taking out increments of several thousand dollars at a time because I too can see the hand writing on the wall and it is not good. Anyhow the first week they left it happen after that I had to tell them a week in advance because they order their cash every Monday morning for the week. You could have millions in the bank-just try and take it out and see what happens.

  36. cletus March 25, 2016 at 2:47 pm

    People who have recently left the US and come here to Uruguay are still, at least for now, able to wire all of their money out of the US into a bank here. They’re often get harassed by the wire department in the US. And It will still have to be reported to the IRS. But at least you’ll get your money out of the US.

    Also, you can walk into a bank here, give them your ATM card drawn on a US checking account, and take out large sums of money from a teller at the counter. This works for a couple thousand dollars. I’m not sure what the upper limit is. I haven’t hit it yet. The tellers are totally nice like they used to be in the US 30 years ago.

    When I first arrived here, I could take $1500 from my US account in one transaction at the ATM. This was the daily limit. Then that turned into five $300 transactions per day, effectively quintupling the transaction fee on $1500. Now it’s one $300 transaction per day.

    Only time i have ever been asked what i was using money for was when i asked for a bank cheque for $11 000, i was buying a caravan at the time which was fine with them and they wrote the cheque. I’m in Australia and we have a similer law for withdrawels more then $10 000, they have to ask you what it is for. We have a very high Asian population in Australia consisting of Chinese, Japanese, North and South Koreans, Vietnamese Malaysian, and many others and they all prefer to deal in cash instead of plastic. So the banks here are not tight with giving out cash under $10 000… Yet that is, I have had to re train myself to use cash instead of just pulling out my eftpos card which now has paywave automatically detected which i hate. It seems to me they are more interested in tracking us through our financial purchases then they are providing good services.

    What in the world do you have your money in BofA for in the first place. Get all your money out and go to the credit union for heaven sakes!!

  39. mr obvious March 25, 2016 at 3:18 pm

    Dave, is the 10k requirement over 12 months or one day? I’m reading the IRS regulations to mean that structuring and the CTR requirement apply to transactions in one day.

    It isn’t your money, just a usage benefit granted by the Fed, unless you endorse instruments with Title 12 Section 411. You’ll have them by the balls if they refuse that law.

    It’s a myth that people need SSNs for banking or driver’s licenses. The bank is mandated to keep a list of customers who lack SSN. They can’t discriminate against them any more than against black people.

    I am having an issue with B of A right now….Classmates took membership fees out of my account without permission and B of A is siding with them…this has been ongoing since last November..we are only talking $59.00 and they are fighting me all the way. Last May 2015 Classmates.com settled an $11million class action suit for taking money out of members account without permission. I finally turned BoA and Classmates into the BBB but still no refund. As soon as my SSI check comes in I am leaving them and going to a local credit union. thank you so much for this aritcle ..I have put it on my FB and asked everyone to share…

    There’s a much simpler answer to large Bank withdrawals. Buy physical gold. Wire the funds to your gold dealer. Sell the gold for cash.

  45. TR4 March 25, 2016 at 5:25 pm

    “gonna pay cash for a pickup…”
    Or you write the truck seller a check, which he rightfully doesn’t trust, so you both have to go to the bank where he will just cash the check anyway…

    I bailed out of B of A about 15 years ago, Wells about 5 years ago.
    Bad JuJu all around.
    I have one internet $ debt account, ready to close quickly if I have a bad online issues- and one direct deposit account that I isolate more. Both are Senior “free” accounts with 2 local banks. And I have one local VISA credit card to rent that car with so I can flee town…

  47. sherry March 25, 2016 at 6:10 pm

    Nothing happened to me. I just withdrew $2,000 and then $1,400 the net day. If the sums are high sometimes an arrangement has to be made so the bank can have the $$. I have had no problem from lame chase for the past few years. That can always change.

  48. M Popp March 25, 2016 at 6:52 pm

    So many of you have stories about the “BIG BANKS.” And how horrible tney are. Well, spare me the crabbing. You all sound like fools who afyer knowing tjat tjere is a rapist in the meighborhood you walk right past his house, alone, in the dead of night. Mof course you should not be raped, BUT, THE FACT IS…….THERE IS A RAPIST IN YOIR NEIGHBORHOOD. It is the big banks. DO NOT GIVE THEM ANY OF YOUR MONEY or BUSINESS………..PERIOD!
    I have only dealt with a credit union for the past 35 years. I won’t ever go back to a big bank……not ever.
    So, all you crabbers and complainers…….tell me……why do you continue to feed the rapist???????????

    Canadian banks are the same – the big 6, the large credit unions, the smaller banks and credit unions. There is something new that has begun – they have begun to block payments – more to frustrate, especially for precious metals.

  50. Pat Anjali March 25, 2016 at 8:47 pm

    I must say, I am SHOCKED that you, of all people, are banking at BofA?!?!? Come on, Dave. Really. Dare I say, find a Credit Union?


  51. Johnny B. March 25, 2016 at 10:47 pm

    Hmm, what about offshore banks? Like Singapore, or Belize? Some banks won’t take American customers, out of fear of FATCA, but others will. I have seen financial companies offer to set up their customers with a “full package” of banking and privacy services for $2,000 or so.

    “Perpetual Assets” will first sell you metals, then transfer the metals to a storage vault in Spokane, WA, then issue you a debit card that draws against the account. (I think I have that right, but best to check with them to make sure.

  52. Johnny B. March 25, 2016 at 10:52 pm

    The State of Texas is supposed to have their state-owned bullion depository up and running by the end of 2016. Precious metals can be placed on deposit with the, and checks can be written against the metals. (Of course the value of the account will fluctuate with the price of the metals). From what I have heard, the Texas Bullion Depository will be OUTSIDE the control of the Federal Reserve. Let’s just hope that it’s not too little and too late to make a difference.

    I see the point of your article as being a shadow of things to come. But here’s my two cents worth on the side issue of of BA. I now have my business accounts and personal accounts in a couple local credit unions. We make 1-2K cash withdrawals every so often and never get asked about it.

    Here’s why I haven’t done business with BA for years. I had to bully them with threats of lawsuits into refinancing a conventional low interest 30 year loan on my expensive property. Why? Because knowing the potential of my business, if what could happen did happen, I had the good sense to anticipate the future downturn in the economy, with a mobile home purchase instead of building the home I purchased the property for. One of their stupid loan officers had the temerity to tell me “everyone knows people who buy mobile homes are bad credit risks.” That he said to a twenty five year customer with multiple bank accounts and mortgages with them over the years and way above average income and a FICO score over 800. And that, at the same time it was the news of the day, that they were handing out credit cards to illegal immigrants.

    Even though they “don’t do loans for mobile homes” I did get my preferred loan which they kept in house and I still have the loan with them, but all other banking activity including the low interest credit card I had with them, I stopped cold turkey. Theirs is a stupid blanket policy. Every chance I get I am a walking talking bad advertisement for them. Not to mention their multiple fines over the years for criminal behavior and their theft of taxpayer money because they are “too big to fail.”

    You all know what is coming. My question is WHY DO YOU KEEP ANY FIAT MONEY IN A BANK.
    For people that are supposed to be so money savvy, you don’t seem so smart to me. So go ahead and become an unsecured creditor of the banks. They will one day steal everything you THOUGHT you had….AND ITS ALL YOUR FAULT FOR NOT ACTING NOW.

    Only keep what is necessary to pay bills in your account. Everything else is moved to the safety of the cookie jar.

    Granpa was always right…and still is.


  57. Bailey Hughes March 26, 2016 at 4:14 am

    Since the retirement of 10,000 daily begins to approach 50 million of the 100 million involved, the US governemnt requires the principal of national debt to pay those sums out; not just the interest on those debts or obligations. This trickles down into both state & city coffers as well to support their obligations, such as police, firemen, teacher, and public servant retirees. Know they will not be able to continue to pay these amounts out on a monthly basis, their bosses, such as the feds must put restrictions on the money in order to remain solvent. when you have to pay 100 million retirees out $1,000/mo minimum, that becomes $100 billion/mo or over a trillion/year , not counting cost of medical or governement expenses monthly in the trillions. It is just a guestion of time before the collapse. Since going off the gold-silver statndards and printing the bills as debt instruments, the fed is correct in establishing the fact that Federal Reserve Notes are not money, but just part of the debt, so legally they are right about priority of debt collection. The true facts are that this financial collapse will occur without any government elected to pervent it from happening. They were broke as of 2008 and unprepared to handle that problem. Their delays using more debt to cover a decade to prepare for the collapse purchasing unlimited guns, amour, bullets, food and water supplies to help them remain in power is what they are doing at present. Just look at Venezuela to see where we all are headed on a worldwide basis as the collapse begins to occuir when 75 million retirees become elgible? THIS DEBACLE IS UNAVOIDABLE!

  58. Dawnski March 26, 2016 at 5:00 am

    Wow! You sound like me last week at BOA, when I tried to cash a $600 money order drawn on that same branch earlier that day. I had to wait for the snarky bank manager, who then had me sit at his desk for a ridiculous amount of time as he stared at his computer screen, he forgot to get my thumb print, sent me back to the teller line and the teller then gave me 50’s when I asked for large bills. She said they were out of 100’s. These people are paid to harass! Come Lord Jesus.

  59. David Waters March 26, 2016 at 5:44 am

    I have had a Free online BofA checking account for about 6 years. Received a notice yesterday that the Free period is over so now they want to charge $12 per month to keep money there. I’m now moving to a small regional bank that still offers free online banking. They don’t call the likes of BofA, banksters for nothing….

  60. Jessie Lee March 26, 2016 at 6:00 am

    We bank at Chase. They have these stupid new “teller” machines in front of where the tellers used to be. But you can take out up to 3 thousand from there, and they have $100’s.

  61. old nam vet March 26, 2016 at 6:32 am

    Dave , I enjoy reading your articles daily. I usually don’t see info covered the way you do on several other web sites. In my mind this is good because it’s from a different and knowledgeable perspective keeping us all sharp and aware. I shared this article with my wife and she was shocked over the banks statements and understood why you were so upset. She started her career in a bank.as a teller then on to loans, etc. She is now with a private University as an Accounting Manager . Keep up the good work and info. Peace

    Last year I transferred $ 50,000 in two bank visits,this was my son`s acct. and he is in Peru and was buying a ranch.these bank people freaked out,all this money going to Peru ?,IRS ,called me and a lot of questioning happened.,i closed the acct. and here`s the pap[er work to IRS and told them keep up the good work,there are drug fiends all around .and some are in the gov.

  63. Confideo autem in Deo i March 26, 2016 at 6:57 am

    I think it really don’t matter if you have cash or not , because we will go cash less . When the Gov decides we go , the cash will be declared worthless ! So by assets to barder with when times get tuff . Metals sound good , but lets face it , would you trade a gold coin worth 100$ for a laf of bread ? And how many time will you be able to do so ? Metals was good in the past , but for what is coming is not so good . Buy , buy , buy as long as you can , the chip is no plan B for me , is it for you ?

  64. DB March 26, 2016 at 7:08 am

    I am the first post in the comments in this article.

    The $4,000 withdrawal my friend made from their bank was from BMO Harris, a bank with branches in 8 states and 600 branches…yes they are in AZ Dave. Maybe BMO is small enough where they still give you your cash back when you want it (imagine that). Unfortunately the ease at which my friend got their money out did not help me in my efforts to warn them about the rest of their money in the BMO bank system. They will find out the hard way like most Americans. I have stopped feeling sorry for anyone who will not receive the truth about what is coming regarding this subject. In my circle, these are also the people who do not have one single food item put aside for emergencies.

    BMO Harris Bank, N.A. is a United States bank based in Chicago, Illinois. It is a member of the Federal Reserve System and operates branches in the states of Illinois, Indiana, Arizona, Missouri, Minnesota, Kansas, Florida, and Wisconsin. BMO Harris Bank has over 600 branches and 1,300 ATMs and employs 14,500 staff in the United States.[1]

  66. Fast Eddy March 26, 2016 at 9:07 am

    My bank is local, but it’s the largest in the state. They would never ask what the money was for. They are very careful not to pry. They have never had me fill out a form, even for withdrawals of much larger than $10,000. If they send one in surreptitiously, I don’t care.

    They did call one time and say they were running out of currency and a deposit of cash would be most welcome so they could keep their doors open the rest of the day. I thought that was really odd that they would be that low on bills.

  67. cheryl finnie March 26, 2016 at 9:13 am

    Just last night I had trouble using my debit card to order pizza. The card had been used earlier in the day so I was frustrated….therefore I tried to activate my new card which I have been carrying around for a couple of weeks….I hhad recently received a letter from Chase that I had to have new card activatedd by March 31….that`s next week folks!!…So I went to my bank tjhis morning and withdrew my remaining 115.00. I also asked the teller if she would activate my new card which she did. When I get my April diirect deposit I will draw out all my cash that does not go for bills. I can`t afford to buy precious metals but at least I can try to have some influence on my family who have aa more working stash than I do. I`m so thankful for this post and it is SO appropriate for what I just experienced with my debit cards. I`m going too share this with my friends that don`t already think I`ve lost my mind. THANK YOU DAVE.

    Good information! By the way I understand questioning why Dave or others use certain criminal banks. What I don’t understand is the caustic criticism leveled at someone spending his life providing information against the NWO and helping millions. I have to wonder just how much help the “criticizers” are providing other people.

  70. Guest March 26, 2016 at 9:42 am

    Since when do they question your withdrawals now? That’s not good. When banks start telling you what you can do with your own money its time to get out. $1500 isn’t even a lot of money.

  71. John Smith March 26, 2016 at 10:39 am

    Do all yourselves a favor and withdrawal monies from banks and join a local credit union!!!

    Small fees and no ATM expenses if using credit union ATM’s

  72. Jean Deaux March 26, 2016 at 11:22 am

    I have to agree but I would put food and water at the head of the investment list. If food is extremely scarce, gold and silver will not be of any value. Guns and ammo are good investments; if you are able to obtain a surplus of ammo, it makes great bargaining “currency”. Womens sanitary products, whiskey, toilet paper all are great trading investments. I have used a credit union for over 40 years and will continue to do so. I am very careful of my credit card and use a credit union for that also. No sense giving banks any profit from that source. You are the boss, make it happen!!

  73. JustMe March 26, 2016 at 12:57 pm

    Get your money out of the big banks and go local. We bank with a local credit union and never have a problem withdrawing large sums of cash.

  74. Fred Mueller March 26, 2016 at 1:06 pm

    Back in the early 70s, my wife’s grandfather told us what he went through to empty his B of A savings account. $35,000 dollars total. He was very fed up with the B of A for various reasons and he wanted all of “his money” back. They gave him quite a hassle, finally agreeing to give him a cashier’s check. He declared that when he deposited the money, he gave them CASH, not a cashier’s check! They told him they didn’t have that much cash in the bank. Grampa was quite a scrappy fellow and in excellent shape. He’d been a champion boxer earlier I his life and he was ready to punch a few people! At that time they didn’t threated to have him arrested (I guess the banks didn’t have that much power quite yet) and eventually they gave him his cash. They had the cash. They obviously just didn’t want to release that much money to one person. He deposited his money in an independent bank and was much happier. (Notice, there aren’t too many of those independent banks around any more!) Now the B of A is resisting the withdrawal of a measly $1500??? Unbelievable, but not a bit surprising in this day and age!

    The bulk of precious metals is owned by the banking cartels, so they set the price of these metals. So this is not the way to go, but bartering in any form you can think of can never be infiltrated.

  77. Stephen Alessini March 27, 2016 at 12:02 am

    I think that Hillary will probably be indicted soon and then Bernie Sanders will become President through massive voter fraud, ushering in the new age of socialism in America. All our money will disappear and everyone will be “equal” and given the same amount of “money” on VISA (666) cards. The police state will try to ensure that widespread rioting does not occur, with any kind of insurrection being put down forcefully. Then, when everything seems hopeless, the Lord Jesus Christ’s Second Coming will bring paradise on earth. Pray for deliverance, my friends. God Bless you, Dave. Keep up the good work.

    Please, please, PLEASE GET THIS CORRECT. The fifth amendment doesn’t NOT say you have the right not to SELF-INCRIMINATE. It says “No person shall… be compelled in any criminal case to be a witness against himself…”

    This is an important distinction. You have the right not to testify against yourself so that essentially you can’t be tricked or tortured into confessing, and I’m sure there are a million other reasons. Using the term “self-incriminating” implies you are guilty but you don’t have to say so. DON’T IMPLY GUILT. Say you have the fifth amendment right not to be compelled to bear witness against yourself.

    One dollar bills too. I had put away one dollar bills for years. I had 550 of them. Decided to turn them in for hundreds and a fifty. Had to sign a form and show my drivers license. That was Chase bank. I’m in Michigan.

    Bailey Hughes writes the perfect trigger event; “THIS DEBACLE IS UNAVOIDABLE”. Global Research posted article today which describes what is coming perfectly:

    “We could easily wake up one morning in the very near future and find that all our life savings have just disappeared overnight, and the crime cabal elite could just say “oops, sorry but it’s just those bad guys who are apparently doing it to us again”. For years the federal government has been planning on one of these type cyber-world attacks causing the next international crisis”

    I have never posted an article on your site Dave, but feel this one is very appropriate. I have tried to warn others but just get the blank stare or rolling of the eye’s, “protected by the FDIC” speech, regardless of informing them of the G20 ruling information you have reported on. Thanks for writing this article Dave, It is refreshing to see people are paying attention. Damn Criminals!

    Does anyone know of specific credits unions to ‘stay away from’ in the Northwest USA?
    Don’t want to move to a credit union that may be as bad as the big banks……………..or, how would one go about finding out whether or not a credit union is ok?

  82. A. McGill March 27, 2016 at 2:48 pm

    Saw your article today, Sunday, March 27, 2016 — Your story caught my eye because of what happened to me at the Bank of America about two weeks ago. I am not a customer but a relative is and I went into the bank to deposit $400 into her account. I was glared at and certainly treated with suspicion. I had to swipe my Driver License into their reader before they would continue the transaction. Never again. The inside of our local Bank of America is like a fortress to guard the clerks against us peons who are certainly treated like criminals. The article is TRUE!!!

  83. Charles Elliott March 28, 2016 at 7:25 am

    After reading all of the comments, and I was aware of all of this coming for some time now, I cannot help but wonder what happens to the funds in a credit union being as how they are RNs which belong to the federal govt.?? Also, does anyone have any info on a Credit union that will accept “irrevocable trust as a depositor”/

  84. Dr. Robert Tarwacki March 28, 2016 at 7:53 am

    Dave, Having been in the Armored Car business for 10 years, did you ever think that maybe that branch was legitimately out of cash? Holiday Weekend? Waiting for their Fed Reserve cash shipment? Ever pull up to a gas station and find that they are out of gas? Not everything is a conspiracy.

  85. Soar March 28, 2016 at 9:00 am

    Just a thought. When it was time for a beauty treatment, a haircut, in Cypress it seems like long hair was determined by the amount in a single institution. Have not been able to verify this; however, I recommend to anyone who will listen to have accounts in as many banks and credit unions (when did savings and loans seem to disappear?) as possible so that the balance in each institution will be minimized. Alternately, pick our amount . . . What is the maximum you want in each place? For instance, if you have $35k, you might spread it between four separate institutions. I do research for two groups and have found issues that I have NEVER seen addressed ANYWHERE. Maybe some of you have heard suggestions regarding the following:
    – If a person removes cash from a bank, where and how can they safely stash it against everything from burglars to go’mt personnel?
    – How can the average person retain the nutrition in stored food since food must be kept both cool (under 70 degrees) and at an even temperature? 25-year shelf life is a joke if those two conditions are not met.
    – How/where to store anything of value so that it is retained if/when home invaded by anyone? And it would still need to be accessible if someone needed to make a sudden trip out of town.
    – Since anyone with more than two weeks of food is a ‘ter-ist’ according to the go’mt, where to hide?
    Preppers (and many preachers) seem to tell us WHAT we SHOULD do without telling us HOW to do it!

    And, Dave, thanks for the article. I hope it goes to both the alert ones and the ostriches.

  86. dick motta March 29, 2016 at 1:53 am

    Obviously, the concept that your money/savings is safe in a bank has become another illusion. Including limitations on withdrawing cash with negative interest rates should make you realize that banks, coupled with government enforcement, have become a total Ponzi scheme and fraud. If money is no longer your personal property, a medium of exchange,or available on demand, then it is clear that banks have violated the purpose and intent of their existence and Federal Government criminalization has exceeded it’s authority. Close your banking account before it’s too late.

  87. Karen March 29, 2016 at 5:48 am

    If/when we see a global finance reset or the collapse of the US dollar, how does that effect the average Joe? I am wondering more in terms of pay day and bills. Obviously if bread goes to $15 a loaf overnight it will cut our purchasing options, but if the paycheck and the hospital bill are both currently in US dollars won’t any change in the dollars status make it an apples to apples adjustment? Or will debts be revalued differently? It may seem like a dumb question, but there are a lot of us living payday to payday putting every available $1 to pay off the medical bill type debts, we don’t have savings accts for them to take. My house and cars are paid for, but this last hospital bill is a noose! Thanks for all you do, Dave!
