U.S DEPARTMENT OF HOMELAND SECURITY HAS TOLD BANKS – IN WRITING – IT MAY INSPECT SAFE DEPOSIT BOXES WITHOUT WARRANT AND SEIZE ANY GOLD, SILVER, GUNS OR OTHER VALUABLES IT FINDS INSIDE THOSE BOXES!


Just found this… very interesting. I am trying to verify the post from a govt source.

According to in-house memos now circulating, the DHS has issued orders to banks across America which announce to them that “under the Patriot Act” the DHS has the absolute right to seize, without any warrant whatsoever, any and all customer bank accounts, to make “periodic and unannounced” visits to any bank to open and inspect the contents of “selected safe deposit boxes.”

Further, the DHS “shall, at the discretion of the agent supervising the search, remove, photograph or seize as evidence” any of the following items “bar gold, gold coins, firearms of any kind unless manufactured prior to 1878, documents such as passports or foreign bank account records, pornography or any material that, in the opinion of the agent, shall be deemed of to be of a contraband nature.”

DHS memos also state that banks are informed that any bank employee, on any level, that releases “improper” “classified DHS Security information” to any member of the public, to include the customers whose boxes have been clandestinely opened and inspected and “any other party, to include members of the media” and further “that the posting of any such information on the internet will be grounds for the immediate termination of the said employee or employees and their prosecution under the Patriot Act.” Safety deposit box holders and depositors are not given advanced notice when failed banks shut their doors.

If people have their emergency money in a safe deposit box or an account in a bank that closes, they will not be allowed into the bank to get it out. They can knock on the door and beg to get in but the sheriff’s department or whoever is handling the closure will simply say “no” because they are just following orders.

BANK OF AMERICA & COMPASS BANK MANAGERS WERE TOLD HOMELAND SECURITY WILL CONFISCATE SAFE DEPOSIT BOXES

While all the other points I mentioned in a previous post are fairly well documented and discussed elsewhere on the Internet, the bank information I reported is not. This information is from my own experience and research. I discovered the disturbing news quite by accident – and by virtue of its importance, I decided to post my findings here and on a few other forums.

DHS Has Reportedly Told Banks that It Has Authority To Seize The Contents Of Safety Deposit Boxes Without A Warrant When Its A Matter Of “National Security”, Which A Major Bank Crisis No Doubt Will Be.

Could This be the Simple Formula That has Wrecked Two Civilizations, Going on Three?

If everyone Asked the Banks for theirMoney Tomorrow, only the first few would be successfully served. Cyprus? No. The US of A.

    In the video (of course put out on Corporate Media) never mentions unwarranted seizures, bank holidays, or confiscation that can be done at any time without a warrant and all safety deposit box articles taken by the DHS!
    You have to be very very gullible, fast asleep, or just pure brainwashed to think that deposits or safe deposit boxes are safe in any bank nowadays. If you think I’m wrong, just look at Cyprus.
    The banks can seize, limit, or control how much or how little you can get regardless of what your account balance is. Once you put your money in the bank or its building, it is theirs not yours!

    • RattlerRider

      Thanks that’s very enlightening.

  • evoval

    Banks need to find a new name for a safe deposit box! Partially safe box maybe, some what safe box, how about a trust US box.

    • http://www.facebook.com/george.hilbert George Hilbert

      How about a “You gave it to us and we don’t even thank you” box.

      • zorro

        Or simply a “donation box”?

        • Glatik

          Donation box is a very good name.

    If it IS true, someone tell me WHAT the reason for the Department of Homeland Security is? TO STEAL FROM US, or to SECURE the country for us? WHICH IS IT? It can’t be both!

    • Neil Armstrong

      It appears they are to fill the role of Gestapo. I worked for DHS and couldn’t stand to see the direction they were heading, no one else inside the agency seemed to even notice, it’s a form of psychosis. They are not here to secure the country, that’s what we were told they were created for. So far DHS has not been involved in preventing anything that represents any form of danger. Every credible terrorist action stopped in this country has been done so by law enforcement officers of other federal agencies or local governments. I’m guessing the role of DHS today is to stock pile ammunition, and I won’t be surprised to wake up one morning to hear they are using it against us. It’s not paranoid to think we are living in pre WWII Germany, it’s history repeating it’s self, just on a much larger scale.

    Banks are an extension of corporate government, look at what corporate greed is doing to Cyprus

    • John Shelton

      Other way around Mary, the banks own the puppet governments.

  • d2arace

    and just who in the hell does the DHS think they have the authority to do whatever….if this stands then all should leave the bankimg system ..to rot and drop..

    • Tjeffson

      why would you store anything of value in a bank? If they don’t open the doors (or disable online banking/ATMs) you aren’t getting your stuff. Anyone leaving anything in a bank deserves to lose it .. .just look at Cyprus.

    • http://www.facebook.com/jeffrey.missal Jeffrey Missal

      Perhaps it (the authority) is an extension of the 1.6 billion rounds of .40 JHP and 7.62 FMJBT DHS has purchased in the last 10 months….?

  • Timothy

    THANK YOU PRESIDENT GEORGE W. BUSH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!FOR YOUR WONDERFUL PATRIOT ACT.

    • Nightbred

      And Obozo for expanding it….

      • Steven Feil

        and the marvelous citizens who take the positions and feel the need to have power over the rest of us. That is the most disgusting part of it. If no one took the jobs they would not have a leg to stand on.

      • http://www.facebook.com/people/Kit-Holz/100003349137699 Kit Holz

        Obama gave Bush practically four terms, but nevertheless where are the US citizens who resist!

    • http://twitter.com/Sally_0508 Sally

      The Patriot Act was written by Senator Joe Biden.

  • http://www.facebook.com/george.hilbert George Hilbert

    Come on people. This has been true of safe deposit boxes since at least 1933. Shouldn’t even be a story, any more than it is not safe to walk alone down an unlighted street in a bad neighborhood at night: Obama and the 4,000,000 thieves.

  • texaschris

    Time to empty the old box, looks like.

    • Tjeffson

      I’ve never advised anyone use those… if the bank doors aren’t open, you aren’t getting to your goods. Find a safe place to store valuables that isn’t a bank… that includes your cash. They’ll be trying to pull a Cyprus here as well I’m sure.

      • http://www.facebook.com/jeffrey.missal Jeffrey Missal

        Agreed. Its only a matter of time….might not be in the immediate future, but if they get away with it in Cyprus, they WILL try and implement it here.

        • Tjeffson

          technically they’re doing much worse to us here, QE. The money supply has increased 30% in the last 24 months. That’s a direct tax on everyone.

          • texaschris

            I literally emptied it 45 minutes ago.

  • anne

    they also have the right to anything in your storage unit, can take over all utilities and force you to work for them. You should read these EO’s and bills. They are dictatorship.

    • Glittermama

      exactly EO of March of 2012 basically states Obama can make us slaves literally by forcing us to work without pay in the event of anything they declare an emergency and I don’t even think it states it has to be an emergency. People don’t realize what a pathological lying psychopath Obama really is but he’s just still getting orders from the Bushes !

      • Hossmiester

        Why do you think they are working so hard to remove the Second Amendment? You can not resist if you have no weapons to fight with. Also why Obmamcare can say Sorry your no longer viable to our use so “NO MEDICAL CARE FOR YOU”.

  • Cindi Taylor

    And,of course, this president has the right to deem anything an emergency or of National Security status.

  • Cindi Taylor

    We should probably stop investing in the banks. Find other routes. Our money, which is supposed to be guarded by law , has now become the property of the government that is supposed to protect it and us. Executive orders are like Fritos to Obama: You can’t have just one!

    • Cannonfodder2010

      Cindi, your paper ‘money’ has always been the property of someone else. Before 1913, it was property of the government, now it is the property of the Federal Reserve Bank. They can do whatever they want with it.

      • Cindi Taylor

        I know this already, but I was trying to make another point.

    • Hossmiester

      First of all it no longer is “your money” it now all belongs to the Federal Reserve bank, they are simply allowing you to use it for now.

  • Cindi Taylor

    I don’t believe that it is just our safe desposit boxes are at risk. I believe that this administration would steal our money in a heartbeat from our bank accounts, ie, checking and savings.

  • R A FEIBEL

    EVIDENTLY NO WHO WROTE HERE HAS A SDB IN A BANK .YOU HAVE A OX AND YOU HAVE A KEY OT GET IN YOU NEED YOUR KEY AND THE BANKS KEY AFTER YOU IDENTIFY YOURSELF.HOWEVER THE BANK DOES NOT HAVE YOUR KEY IT TAKES THE TWO KEYS TO OPEN THE BOX FROM ITS STATION.AND THEN YOU CAN GET INSIDE.NOT AS DESCRIBED HERE BY UNINFORMED PEOPLE.

    • Bearman

      LMAO! You can’t be serious. That’s some sort of April Fool response, right?

    • Cannonfodder2010

      Feibel, it takes a locksmith about 5 minutes to drill out those locks, and that bank you trust so much won’t hesitate for a moment if there is any ‘authority’ requesting the opening. Many years ago, my boss told me that fences and locks are only there to keep honest people out. Sadly, you seem to place far too much trust in corporations, law and government.

    • STL_Tix

      But he writes in caplock so it MUST be true……

      Powder is dry Molon Labe

  • 2BRKnot2B

    One reason I don;t have a SDB. Keep mine hidden right behind my loaded guns. Hehehe!

  • Rogoraeck

    They got the idea from your “greatest President” FD Roosevelt!
    What did you do then?? Sweet F**k all!

  • Undecider

    The Nazi troops were just “following orders” as well.

    What is an Investment ? What is an Investment can you tell me about the some uses of Investment? What we can get or obtain benefits when we submitted our amount in the Bank tell me about it? What is the function of Bank when we submitted our Investment in the Bank can you tell me some benefits of that Investment when we can earn the Bank tell me about it?

  • Rob

    They can put the Star Spangled Banner in writing, it matters not. WE have in writing the Bill of Rights, which says they can’t. “The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.”, and, “No person shall be held to answer for a capital, or otherwise infamous crime, unless on a presentment or indictment of a Grand Jury, except in cases arising in the land or naval forces, or in the Militia, when in actual service in time of War or public danger; nor shall any person be subject for the same offense to be twice put in jeopardy of life or limb; nor shall be compelled in any criminal case to be a witness against himself, nor be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor shall private property be taken for public use, without just compensation.”

    Sorry Janet. You can’t.

  • DIK

    This DHS nonsense is getting WAY out of hand. Since when does my having gold coins in my safety deposit box constitute a terrorist threat to the United States? Vote those complete and utter morons who come up with this crap out of office as soon as possible.

  • Don Kenner

    Are they going to check between mattresses too? And boxes buried in the backyard?

  • Hossmiester

    I only have money in my bank account to pay immediate bills due. All other money is stored in a secure safe in my home. It also seems that some companies will not accept or they want to charge me extra to make a payment thru the mail. Since when did Cash become an unacceptable form of payment?

  • TimeHasCome

    I use the Bank of Sealy

  • Scout

    I saw that several states were confiscating safe deposit boxes that had been dormant for over one year.

  • I__AM__GOD

    If you think inflation isn’t stealing your money, or taxes…then you need to wake up. It’s happening RIGHT NOW.
