Message Subject Asked why I was paying cash!! WTF
Poster Handle Ralph--a house dog
Post Content
Imagine my anger and dismay when, for anyone standing there to hear, a bank teller actually asked me what I was planning to use a cash withdrawal for. It was a relatively unremarkable amount (few thousand dollars), and to add insult to injury, the bank gave me grief about not having my cash on hand in the first place.

That's happened to me too! Exactly the same thing in a bank

I had this exact same thing. I'm not exactly wealthy full balance in the bank is usually around 5k. When I went to withdraw 2k$ and asked for cash the teller actually got the bank manager who then asked why I would need to withdraw cash, what it was for, and if a cashier check would suffice.

I then changed my request and to withdrawing my entire balance in cash and closing the account. Drove 3 minutes down the road and opend an account with a local credit union.

Get your money outta the banks now give it to the local credit unions and small banks. You might be glad you did.

Chase Bank has been doing this for several years. I still keep one account there for various reasons even though I consider that bank almost on a par with Monsanto.

The last time they asked me what I was going to do with the cash, I said that they would have every right to ask me that question if I were borrowing it from them, but since I wasn't, they didn't.

It wasn't an enormous amount but the teller still went over and talked to the manager. He just waved at me but he wasn't smiling. I got my cash and have been looking at small local banks for a new account. This link and several others give independent ratings of banks and credit unions financial stability:
