Chase Bank and Fascism

March 11, 2015

Today I went into CHASE bank in order to make a cash deposit for a friend.  CASH Deposit!  Can you believe I was not allowed to make a cash deposit.  A cash deposit!  No, if you do not have a bank account with Chase you cannot make a deposit for someone else.  No, not cold hard cash.  No, you have to take your cash and get a money order (pay someone for the privilege) or write a check (give all your information so CHASE can mine your identity). You know why?  Because they want to track every little chocolate bar you eat.  They want to know god dammit.   They want to know where that cash is coming from and who is giving it to you.  The amount is of no significance.  $1 or $1000, you have to have an account or bring a check or money order.  Because they must have a record of you giving cash to someone else!  THEY MUST KNOW YOUR BUSINESS!!!!!!

    The data mining is over the top now, and from all sides. I’m not sure which I should be more worried about, the government or the corporations.

      And, you know there are so many people who have no problem what-so-ever with it. Your complaint will get, “If you don’t have anything to hide, what’s wrong?” Uh, maybe because corporations and the government don’t have to know my every little step!

      Exactly. It’s creepy. Why do they or anyone need this information? I would not want my closest relatives knowing as much as these data pigs probably know about me. Nothing to hide…give me a break. I guess they pee with the door open too.

    I’d guess part of this is to track payments for tax purposes and to fight the war on terra. Banks got much more restrictive after 9/11. I think they also made it extremely difficult to exchange foreign money. That said, it seems pretty ridiculous that they don’t have an option for filling out a form and providing an ID to prove who you are and where the money is coming from. That might just be laziness on the part of the bank. A check or money order gives that information with not as much effort on their part.
