: Now, the same bank allows us to open accounts in whatever lawful name (such as trusts, etc.) that we choose because they "know us." Well, that's they're excuse.

Yeah - Cheers :) back to ya,
The unfortunate side of this story is that, since the first account got opened at that bank, they have changed branch managers to one with less intelligence. We still get to open accounts there for trusts, etc, "because we are known."
The up side is, as far as we know, 5 USC 552(e) has not been repealed, and that's the part that imposes ($1,000) sanctions and costs of litigation on one who violates that fundamental right to privacy under the privacy act.
One has to be prepared to litigate in order to enforce his/her rights. A case called U.S. v. JOHNSON (cite not in front of us right now) M.D. Pennsylvania, shows some interesting comments by on Judge James Alger Fee. Worth reading. It tells you by whom and how your rights may be preserved and enforced.
Are you one willing to die or go to jail for your fundamental rights and those of your family and children? No? go away. Yes? Ok, do what you have to do and the whole system will fall in behind you in support. That's about the size of it.
