: I have tried at a few banks, and they all just blow me off. I have tried using a Notice of Demand stating all the privacy act issues, and the likes, but they all pretty much say "so sue me..."
: I would love to sue them, frankly, however I don't have the expirience, nor the resources to do so yet. Is there a "Majik Bullet" for compelling them to start a non-interest bearing acount in my name?
: I have tried to read everything that I can, but it seems that may "Patriot Groups" are really out for your cash and I just don't have it to fork over; not to mention that there seems to be such a variety of opinions available for sale as "Gospel"
: Please email me as I can't get on to read the group very often.
RESPONSE: Methods I wwas aware of years ago, before all the info was available on the Internet), involved requesting a NON-INTEREST BEARING ACCOUNT, which makes sense, unfortunately..
... no 1099 to "report interest", so no need for SSN. This appears to have been the method recommended years ago, along with the legal/lawful arguments
which have already been posted here. (Must admit I was somewhat disappointed when I sent in money to answer the big question of "how-to" and got this response.)
