: : 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.
: : Thanx.
: 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.)
