    I can give you a basic US Bank account. Basic in the sense that it is only for direct electronic deposits and transfers. You can write a check / draft from it, but you can not deposit a check into it.

    Contact me if interested.

    From my experience I am telling that I could not open an account at New Jersey as being a Non—Resident. It is better to do every thing from the country of departure. Information is possible to get from American Embassy of his own country.

      For any online business having a US bank account is a must ! Unfortunately, Patriot act made it difficult for non US residents with no SSN or real presence in the US. Still there is a way !! please check

    Thanks to increasing fascism (totalitarianism) by the U.S. government primarily, and the socialist (totalitarianism) European and other "western" and wannabe western countries, it is more and more difficult for subjects ("citizens") of any country to open bank and financial accounts in other countries.

    The phony "wars" on drugs, terrorism, and "money laundering" are the excuses the various countries use to put the screws to their subjects.

    Governments will not be happy until your every move -- physically, financially, and bowel -- can be tracked, recorded, analyzed, and punished.

    Be careful when search the web and find any company who claimed they can done the US Bank Account for Non-US Resident.
    I recently had Fraud or Scam hard experience when try to open a US bank account, I paid $1464 USD (a package including: incorprate, US address and US phone number, US business bank account ) to a company, they only email me several banks' names and their contact phone number, and let me contact them and also told I need to come to US in person to apply for US bank account. The more bad things is I failed when I complained to PayPal, as this company had my signature against me, my signature was left when I signed their invoice and there is tracking number on the invoice. PayPal told there is my signature on the invoice and this is a kind of service not Physical products, they can't help. this company is profeesional scammer. Hope everyone see my words and don't try this kind of service. They are just profeesional scammer. This company's name is: Globes America, Inc  their website is:  its PayPal Account Name: TAX TREASURE INC (related website with )

    FOREIGN OWNED LLC ( no SSN, ESTA or VISA, how to get EIN,...)

    To open an US bank account the manager of the company must come in person to a branch in US. Wells Fargo and BofA are great.
    EU banks will not open a EUR bank account for off shore US LLC anymore.

    I will help honest people only, who would like temporary relocate to US.
