The Insane State of US Banking — And A Question for Readers

Posted by on | July 30, 2018 | Comments Off

A while back I wrote on my concerns about privacy and being treated like a criminal in opening new business banking accounts in small town California.  My main bank closed so I had to go with the available local bank El Dorado.  Now El Dorado Bank refuses to take my business and open new accounts.  It could be because I criticized them online, but they say it is because they no longer take accounts that are just deposit accounts, ie accounts where we drop our local cash collections and then ACH it from time to time to our other accounts.

I guess I understand why this is not awesome business for them, but on the other hand all they have to do is make 4 deposits a month and they get to carry my $20,000 average balance and charge me a fee as well.  And they still don’t want the business.

Here is what I need.  I need some easy way around the country, often in rural locations, I can turn cash into bits.  I can now scan checks anywhere in the country at my desk and have the check deposited to my account.  But not so with cash.   You still have to find someone local who will accept the cash into an account, effectively turning the cash into bits and bytes that I can then transfer to my main bank.  I don’t think there is a solution to this but you are welcome to email me if you know of one.  My guess that anyone who tried to start such a service would be immediately hamstrung by the government who believes in its heart that every one of us is a drug dealer, money laundering, or tax evader, or all of the above.
