It's baffling.
Also looks like it's mostly US banks doing this.
Sure, there have been some (for example) Dutch banks as well that have blocked transfers to bitcoin exchanges for "fraud" reasons, but none that close or threaten to close accounts.

Bitcoin Core developer [PGP] Warning: For most, coin loss is a larger risk than coin theft. A disk can die any time. Regularly back up your wallet through FileBackup Wallet to an external storage or the (encrypted!) cloud. Use a separate offline wallet for storing larger amounts.

I find it hard to believe.
The language used in the letter is not even close to the notices they send in those cases , also banks don't have "expectation" or don't mention "other companies of this kind".

It smells like a forged paper. And the link to your personal block isn't doing things more credible in any way.

I pointed the source of the image on my blog. (I am not the customer of that bank).

I cannot guarantee that this is real, but it looks plausible. My article is about how to circumvent the upcoming bank blockade. Not every US bank is blocking Bitcoin related transfers (for now), but I think that there is a high chance this will happen.
