Hows best to open a bank account in the US today even without being a residence or citizen of the US?
Due to the Patriot Act and many bank's policies, you will find yourself unable to open a bank account unless you are a legal US resident. This is just how it goes.
Because some people are trying to use scams to take unwitting individuals' money.
Open an account with an online share trading house. They will effectively give you a bank account - with a check book.
So much for protecting the US from terrorists lol
LOL Mark, go take a look at his hubs. Does "Nigeria scam" ring a bell?
That’s too brilliant of you Mark Knowles. Could it be true some things are more open in China than US!
I think he is promoting illegal deal, at least in the part of opening US bank account, and could be flagged and banned just for that...
Nothing in the TOS about that either. Oh well, maybe he will get arrested instead?
If there is anything dubious about this post i wont make it here, a lot of people from our world work for you guys via affiliate marketing and any other means you can think about, but cant get there money back after earning it, and some of us are looking for a way of helping them get this hard earned dough back.
Whats wrong with that, and i am not paticularly happy with Mark saying that Nigerians scam.You dont have to abuse a country cos you feel you are up there and have it all. We are also part of the IT world.
Never mentioned Nigerians, other than to quote some one else.
And if you are blind to the amount of spam being sent out from Nigeria, I suggest another line of work. Nothing about abusing the country - just the spammers. Nigerian or otherwise.
No offense, we are all here to learn in a way or the other.
