Unverified, but interesting if proven to be true....
Last week, when I learned that U.S. banks were systematically canceling the merchant accounts of firms offering loan modification services, thus preventing the firm from accepting payment by credit card, I was stunned. And I thought to myself… well, now I’ve heard everything.
I was wrong, however, I had not yet heard everything.
Today, I was informed that Wells Fargo Bank is unilaterally closing the business checking accounts of companies simply because they are offering loan modification services. Yes, you read that right. Business checking accounts. Because you offer to help people obtain loan modifications from banks… like Wells Fargo.http://mandelman.ml-implode.com/2009/06/wells-fargo-closes-accounts-if-firms-offer-loan-mod-services/
