Yo Mike, wanna buy some cryptocurrency?

Out of nowhere I wonder now why Trump never started his own bank, back in the day.

I realize part of the reason was he was spending it faster than he was making it but, prior to Trump Air (when he really hit rock bottom and grew into an international paper trader) he really could have *been* a bank and taken people like poor Mike to the cleaners.

and now I realize that, ultimately, it's because Trump is a lazy man taught to eschew even minimal requirements to skate with the bare minimum we require from the banking industry

As far as Mike is concerned? Too bad he had no wife or kids or advisors to put the brakes to his lunacy.

Like MC Hammer, that pile of sugar just melts away when you are locked into a grove, doesn't it?

I can think of half a dozen names that blew a fortune prior to bad investments.

They literally partied it away, chasing that high, that flash, that crowd.

In some other timeline Mike plays an instrument and has a harried manager instead of being a drowning political player.

Because that would be WORK to play that straight long enough to get a bank charter.

The only surprising thing is that Mike Lindell still has money.
 
2022-01-16 5:54:12 PM  
Not that I'm sympathetic to Lindell, but I can't celebrate this. Banks should be considered infrastructure, and they should be regulated far more than they already are. And one of those regulations should be a guaranteed minimum level of service for everyone. Letting them shiatcan Lindell is the same reasoning they use to deny services to pot dealers in states where weed is legalized.

Also, Trump liked businesses which gave him greater opportunity to sexually assault women.

Ding ding! And it's not hard for me to believe that he might have pushed the issue by trying to deposit some money from "foreign" investors interested in exporting a whole bunch of pillows.

Banks cut problematic clients loose all the time. This is nothing new or unique.

If his accounts were showing unusual traffic or foreign money movements that were concerning, a reputable bank would toss him out in a heartbeat. Regulators would zoom in on any "politically exposed" account holders for scrutiny in any examination. If they find something screwy it creates serious [expensive] problems for the bank.

I work for a bank in IT.  They have many systems to detect fraud and general sketchy activity that, if said activity is detected, they are required to report it.   So that begs the question if they've already reported some activity to the Feds and decided to cut ties to remove any further potential liability as well the stain of the association with Pillow guy.
 
2022-01-16 9:13:55 PM  
That bank knows what's coming.

Busloads of auditors and investigators. And they don't want anything to do with it.
 
2022-01-16 9:14:24 PM  
I'm sure Bank of America will take his money for a bunch of fees.

Yep.

I'll bet they are reviewing everything that is has Lindell and a bank officers name on it, to make sure they don't have any liabilities or other open flanks.

And to make sure whatever auditors and investigators want, at least they have their paperwork in order.

Dodo David: The only surprising thing is that Mike Lindell still has money.


With the number of shiatty imported items he's adding and the number of commercials he's airing during cheap media blocks, he really seems to be running low. I see him bankrupt before the end of the year.

If I were him, I'd get back on drugs. It'll smooth the landing.

Supposedly he's spending an obscene amount every month on his election delusion. I wonder how much of it is loans guaranteed against his company. He might as well spend it all before the lawyers do.

He absolutely should refuse to withdraw his money.  Nothing bad could ever happen.

Oh, everybody with a nuttier than squirrel shiat hypothesis of the election has a hook in him. "$200k to run this statistical analysis for you, Mr. Lindell. $90k for my staff's expense, etc, etc"

Could be the bank is telling him his money is no longer welcome because he ain't got any left.

Banks are real shaitheads to poor people. In trying to open bank accounts, banks scan their credit, then deny them an account if it's bad enough.
However, they will allow the poor prepaid debit cards while charging the holder $5 per month for the privilege of its use, whether the card holder can afford it or not.

Why is such dastardliness allowed?
Because that's some bullshiat.

There is a lot of misinformation in your post.

To end with, it is the FDIC that prevents it, it's not banks choosing not to work with pot dealers.  I'd wager nearly all national banks would be more than happy to let the marijuana industry have access to banking.

It does cost a bank something to maintain your account, and a poor person who keeps a few hundred dollars in their checking account isn't making the bank any money.

That being said, that person should be banking with their local credit union, not a for-profit bank. CUs don't employ people to figure out how to screw over defenseless people.

Banks deliberately string out bad loans for pricey pickup trucks well after they know the young kid lost his job and will never pay it back. Keep offering extension after extension until late fees swallow up any equity in the vehicle.

Got this straight from a small town bank president.

I feel bad for the guy. He's lost everything to the same abusive relationship he had with crack cocaine and all to the same end. An addictive personality is an addictive personality to the end. And all for TFG, who couldn't care less, and conspiracies.

I felt bad for the Trashcan Man in The Stand too, so there's that.

A. His balance is -14.73... constantly
B. The bank decided that since he was the only customer doing wire transfers to Russia, Vatican City, and Maldives, they could lay off a few Forex people by closing his account.
C. They realized 99.44% of their fed inquiries are about his account(s), and/or there are are enough triggers to expect that in the farkin' damn near future that would be a hassle to explain.
D. They put reputation above profits.

Remember 1 and 2: The answer is always C and... see #1

You're just jealous you don't own a business so you can make several $9999 cash withdrawals from a corporate account every day.

Totally routine. But you'd know that, if you were a successful, legitimate, non-drug-addicted businessman.
