There is an update process going on with many major banks and credit unions over the weekend, including Chase, Wells Fargo, First United Bank, CITIGROUP INC, BANCWEST CORPORATION, DEUTSCHE BANK TRUST CORPORATION, BDCU, BECU, Columbia Bank, Concord Bank, Five Point Credit Union, Kemba Credit Union, and many others.
This seems to be an industry wide update and many services will be unavailable or limited. Each bank is a little different, but they are limiting access to accounts, funds, mobile banking, even allowable purchase amounts on debit and credit cards.
A warning has been sent out to financial institutions and government agencies as the collective known as Anonymous has announced their OpUSA.
Banking Alert! Services Limited or Unavailable
Why do people STILL bank with the TBTF banks.
Agreed, but I ask why anyone would have anything to do with ANY form of banking.
Is disrupting the financial system that 100's of million people rely on... A terrorist attack?

Is why I only bank with small, hometown, small community banks. I'll sleep well tonight.
So will my money

hi, in the uk we have to have a bank account for our wages to be paid into unfortunately,
But I will "trust" my small town bank, over a national bank ANY day.

I asked members here last Month if Credit Unions were going to be safer than the rest. Many said "Of Course" and I said "Don't be so sure about that".
With respect, I don't agree that all small town banks fall under the elaborate scheme that you have detailed.
Every board member grew up in the same area.
The bank I use, offers a wide variety of services
that are underwritten by their own Trust & Financial Company just a few miles away.
