Emperor's Clothes | Submitted by: Soylent

Idiocy of Current and Future Money Law
Reason | Submitted by: Soylent
"Shortly after I opened a checking account at a Washington, D.C. branch of First Union roughly three years ago, it was frozen by the corporate office because I fit a 'criminal profile.' I'd opened an account by phone and deposited 'large' sums of money in it in a high crime area. The large amount of money was two checks that totaled less than $4,000 and were drawn on First Union accounts. The high crime area was 17th Street and Pennsylvania Avenue, which is almost yelling distance from the White House's West Wing."
