When I asked the bank manager to explain why I couldn't cash in a $10 roll of quarters for a $10 bill I was told "we need a paper trail of the money". ADDITIONAL UPDATE FROM HONDURAS
I'm in the Philadelphia area and have more news for the war on cash. I reported a while back about getting finger printed and interrogated for my phone before I could cash my pay check which was drawn from Wells Fargo and being cashed at Wells Fargo. Today I made a deposit for my girlfriend at TD Bank then decided to cash in some coins I had in my truck. The bank would not take my coins unless I made a deposit then a withdrawl. When I asked the bank manager to explain why I couldn't cash in a $10 roll of quarters for a $10 bill I was told "we need a paper trail of the money." So now I guess the powers that be want to know how much change I have in my drawer?? Please spread the word and for anyone who may read this please try to understand how incredibly dangerous the times we live in are when we're required to declare a few measly coins in our possession.
May the Lord protect us all.---------- FROM HONDURAS---On the post Above. I live in Honduras where God directed me to leave the USA with my Honduran wife and kids. I own a Bodega so I have a lot of change. Well last month all banks here did the same thing, before you could take in your stacks of bills and coins and get them back in bigger bills. Now you have to have a bank account and deposit them first and then withdraw to get bigger bills back.
I thought it was just so not everyone off the street/non-clients would not come and take the time of the teller to count all the money. But I know the real reason now after this post Alert!
