Today we walked into a Banner Bank with the hopes of opening up a business account for our company. The teller was a typical white, close to middle aged woman with blonde hair (later we found out her name is Ashley). She was the least bit friendly, and spoke down to us as we were trying to get information.

All we needed was to speak with the manager who was in charge of setting up business accounts, as it was not even her job to drill us on our company. But instead of doing her actual job, she decided to take it into her own hands because she didn’t even take us serious as potential clients. Then before we even mentioned the words crypto currencies, she treated us as though we looked too rundown to own a business. Sorry that I am not dressed up, we didn't know that customers were going to be treated differently by their look. After we informed her that we registered our company, she was like what kind of company. We told her that we own a company that works with crypto currencies.

She then told us that Banner Bank does not work with people that do crypto currencies, they ban/freeze their accounts. When we asked her why, she said because it is a fraud. But this is legally accepted, there is no laws against crypto, in fact we pay a huge amount of taxes because we feel that we should follow the laws.

We originally went with Banner Bank because they talked up this huge speal about not being a corporate bank that takes your money for everything. But what kind of bank decides to make its own laws that are not concurrent with the government. #BanBannerBank #BannerBankBansCrypto
