UNREAL! BofA Freezes Gun Manufacturer’s Deposits Saying: “We Believe You Should Not Be Selling Guns On The Internet”

All,
My name is Joe Sirochman owner of American Spirit Arms and I wanted to share my recent experience with Bank of America .(which we have been doing business with for over 10 years)…. Everyone is familiar with the latest increase in guns sales , dealers selling out of inventory , Manufacturers back logged for months , large revenue all generated in the last two weeks …. American Spirit Arms is no exception to the overwhelming demand . What we have experienced is that our web site orders have jumped 500 % causing our web site E commerce processing larger Deposits to BANK OF AMERICA ..Well, this through up a huge RED Flag with Bank of America . So they decided to hold the deposits for further review , meaning that the orders/payments that were coming in through the web ,( being paid by the customer and that were shipped out by American Spirit Arms ),the BANK was keeping (UNDER REVIEW )..as you could imagine this made me furious…After countless hours on the phone with BANK OF AMERICA I finally got a Manager in the right department that told me the reason that the deposits were on hold for FURTHER REVIEW …HER EXACT WORDS WERE …

..” WE BELIEVE YOU SHOULD NOT BE SELLING GUNS and PARTS ON THE INTERNET “

…I flipped the F**k Out and told them that they have no right to make up their own new rules and regs..that we are a firearms Manufacturer with all the proper licensing FFL (Federal Firearm license ), SOT and that we follow all Federal and All States’ rules and regulations on shipping Firearms and parts ..and that we are also Audited by ATF and Homeland
Security on a regular basis … She said that she understands that but that the deposits will be released After they have a chance to review and clear them …I told her that This was unacceptable and the those deposits (that were a week old by now ) needed to be released ASAP, that we are a small business and rely on the revenue to run and stay operational.

After that being said another Manager got involved and released one of the deposits (to help out )… So far to date after
Two weeks of sales only 1/3 of collected internet sales have been released ..I am still pissed and looking for another
Bank and options …
I just thought the public should know ..

I will keep everyone posted on new developments ..

Sincerely

Joseph P Sirochman

    Only US$45B, US$25B from TARP in 2008 and an additional US$20B in 2009 (right after Barry was enaugurated) in emergency funds after taking over Merrill Lynch, with US$118B of government guarantees against bad assets. The additional bailout came with the US Treasury taking a stake in the bank.

    The US$45B in bailouts and US$118B in guarantees puts BofA as one of the most bailed-out financial institution of the fiscal crisis. WaMu (Washington Mutual) probably would have been larger if the government had decided to bail them out instead of screwing the investors, but then WaMu wasn’t on record of contributing to the 2008 Obama campaign as BofA is.

    You are also almost required (if you choose not to, which I did, everything is reduced to paper checks and is a pain in the ass for everyone) to have a BofA credit card for TAD/government travel expenses while in certain jobs in the US Military. There was no other option of financial institution. They charge interest, and late fees to the soldiers, even as the government which is requiring the soldiers to apply for BofA credit cards is late in paying the soldier’s travel claims. I’ve hated BofA since this scam began in the late nineties and refuse to do business with them.

    1. Add to your “list” the legally armed mother of twins who saved them and herself from an intruder near Atlanta the other day.

    2. Also add the over 900 killings last year in detroit/chicago by ILLEGALLY armed thugs. Please list them one at a time, so we can get a feel for how many gangstas are off the street.

    Like most narratives, the right is losing this one in a huge way. Best figure something out, and quick, if you intend on keeping your 2nd amendment right to bare arms. Personally I think they risk a (literally) bloody fight on this issue. The corporate/government apparatus in this country hope to take away your rights for their desired control. Things are getting quite scary in this country.

    #24 must have missed this headline, and many more like it:

    Mom shoots intruder, saves kids

    The woman was working in an upstairs office when she spotted a strange man outside a window, according to Walton County Sheriff Joe Chapman. He said she took her 9-year-old twins to a crawlspace before the man broke in using a crowbar.

    But the man eventually found the family.

    “The perpetrator opens that door. Of course, at that time he’s staring at her, her two children and a .38 revolver,” Chapman told Channel 2’s Kerry Kavanaugh.

    The woman then shot him five times, but he survived, Chapman said. He said the woman ran out of bullets but threatened to shoot the intruder if he moved.

    The intruder, 32-year-old Atlanta resident Paul Slate, had been out of jail for all of four months or so, one of six arrests since 2008.

  • mamagriz1968

    BofA has been a questionable institution for a long time. Long before my hubby and I were married, he had a girlfriend whose mother was a higher up at a BofA branch in FL. When he and said girlfriend were on the outs, suddenly he was getting overdrawn notices on his account, to the tune of several hundred dollars. He couldn’t get anywhere with the bank and finally closed the account. Don’t know if this story about the gun seller is true, but I’ll just say I wouldn’t be surprised if it was.

  • Highlander

    Leslie, it looks we have a much bigger problem with unintentional stupidity in American than we do with unintentional shootings. We have a bunch of gun-grabbing morons like you running around getting all worked up about the statistically miniscule number of accidental gun deaths, and ignoring the fact that firearms save far more innocent lives every year than they take. Leslie, firearms are our only defense against violent criminals and a tyrannical government, and our right to own and protect ourselves with them is a primary tenet of the US Constitution. People like you, who would gladly give up that right in the name of “safety” while ignoring the fact that you face a far greater risk of death from a myriad of other natural causes, are not only terminally stupid, you’re dangerous to the rest of us.

    While you’re busy attacking your fellow law-abiding citizens, the REAL problem continues to plague this society. Lawless, violent and mentally unstable human beings continue to roam our streets, taking lives, stealing our property, and corrupting our children. You are so obsessed with stripping decent, honest people of their second amendment rights that you can’t see the REAL problem, which has been staring us in the face for decades and continues to go unaddressed…

    Thanks for doing us a favor though Leslie. With your pathetic whining about accidental firearm-related deaths, you have reminded us, once again, that the REAL end game of gun grabbers is not the elimination of “assault weapons”, or “high capacity ammunition” or “large clips” or any other particular piece of hardware. Your real end game is the COMPLETE AND TOTAL ELIMINATION OF OUR RIGHT TO BEAR FIREARMS of ANY KIND, and I would urge anyone who is inclined to give ground on the gun control issue to think twice and pay very close attention to the words of subversives like Leslie.

    These people are playing for keeps and their intentions are CLEAR. If we have any hope of protecting our right to bear arms, we must do everything in our power to crush their every effort. These people, the people who would disarm us and leave us defenseless while ignoring the real threats we face are the true enemy, and the sooner we recognize that fact and take action to defeat them, the better chance we’ll have of keeping our Constitutional rights intact.

  • valerie

    Names of persons needed in the article. Who, exactly, did this?

  • valerie

    It’s called embezzlement and conversion. Aside from changing banks immediately, he can sue for all compensatory damages. This is grounds for punitive damages, too.

  • david

    well not that I agree with the comments made by the associate at Bofa, (being a large gun advocate myself) the real reason is most likely a Federal reason deposits that are out of ordinary or over or near the 5,000 mark require a SAR form this is a suspicious activity report and deposits at or near 10,000 require a CTR currency transaction report these are not new forms and have been around a long time its to prevent money laundry activity. If your deposits were out of normal and it sounds as if they were this is a function that would have happened at ANY bank, go ahead get a lawyer and a new bank the lawyer will tell you you have no case and if anything BofA will get a pat on the back from from the Feds saying you did the right thing. I do believe the one clerk you were talking with should be released because she is clearly putting the bank at risk by most likely speaking her own opinion and not that actual facts of the case. sorry but I understand the banking side and this is the case, PS I still hate BofA……….

  • You don’t need a high priced lawyer..any business lawyer who knows basic banking laws can clear this up in no time. Because of drug and terrorist money laundering, years ago banking laws required reporting deposits $10,000 or over to the FBI. Then a government agentecy could have the power to freeze the account. NOT the bank.
    The only “freeze” a bank can impose is on a “questionable or unknown” person of up to 10 days to give the check time to clear or be returned. If the funds clear before the 10 days the bank HAS to release them to you.
    They can slow you down with their 10 day rule, but they can not withhold your legally obtained funds just because they have decided they don’t like your business.
    So, go ahead and sue their a-ss off.

    #44, david,

    You obviously DON’T understand the banking processes here. This was a BUSINESS account. Banks have policies and procedures, which an account holder must sign-off and accept, or no account. Do Walmart or GM, or EVERY 7-11, restaurant and bar depositing cash have to pass your “money-laundering” test? Moron.

    The federal and state bank examiners, plus the bofa auditors should be all over this abuse. I’m betting that more than one banking regulation has been violated.

    If my bank were caught pulling this stunt (purposely damaging a business by refusing to allow funds to clear) I would be calling my state delegation, my state attorney general and every bank regulating agency in sight.

  • Doug Wakeman

    I sent BofA my card cut up in pieces when they started issuing credit cards to illegals many years ago. I don’t understand why any partiots are still doing business with them.

  • shadow

    You obviously DON’T understand the banking processes here

    He seems spot-on to me.

    Federal reporting requirements that began with the Currency and Foreign Transactions Act of 1970 (also known as the Bank Secrecy Act) have been expanded by Congress over the last four decades to include a broad range of transactions involving significant sums of cash. Under current law, any person or business involved in a cash transaction of at least $2000 or a series of transactions involving a total of $5000 could be the subject of a report to federal authorities.

    Suspicious Activity Report (SAR)

    Any “face to face” transaction with a bank customer involving $2000 or more which appears related to money laundering or a violation of the reporting requirements under the Bank Secrecy Act must be reported through an SAR. Multiple transactions that appear related and total $5000 or more will also trigger the reporting requirement. Banks are prohibited from informing the customer that an SAR has been filed. Federal law protects reporting institutions from any civil liability related to the report. Businesses which only cash checks or money orders are not required to file an SAR, but may do so voluntarily.

    Cash Transaction Report (CTR)

    The Bank Secrecy Act requires that banks and MSBs report any cash transaction involving $10,000 or more, whether or not the transaction appears related to any crime.

    On the other hand, since these were internet sales, I doubt they were “cash” transactions.

  • SouthTexas

    Haven’t done business with BofA since they started issuing credit cards to illegals.
    Sadly, this does not surprise me.

  • I’ve done this twice over the last 4 years and it has worked both times.

    I financed a new car dealer purchase with BofA because they accepted a super low APR% rate offer that I made to them to finance the purchase. I knew that once I got it that my credit union — who wouldn’t match or beat BofA’s APR% as we were going round and round initially — would meet or beat the APR% eventually. True to form they finally offered and beat it about 3 months later — by .2% in both instances.

    I dumped BofA faster than a nasty habit — both times — as soon as they did.

    BofA is desperate for customers. Outside of property and building/home purchases — they’ll finance practically anything for practically anyone right now. Low-ball the heck out of them and they’ll actually stay reasonably close if not just accepting the lowball offer. Just don’t try to get too greedy if you have less than nominal credit though. Once BofA bites — go to your bank/credit union and ask them to meet or beat BofA’s APR%. They might not at first but once you’re in their system as applying for the financing in competition with another lender they’ll eventually make you an offer that will meet or beat BofA’s if in their estimation your credit worthiness is merely nominal/average. Every financing application in pretty much every bank and credit union in America sends financing app’s up the chain of command for review whether they’re approved/accepted or not. Someone up the chain will order a counter-offer eventually so long as it’s an acceptable risk [ie: little more than simply having nominal credit].

    Use and abuse BofA to your benefit just like they use and abuse the entire country to theirs. BofA fell for this twice in just 4 years. It works right now with the competitiveness of the lending market at this time — and I bought two brand new cars with 1.01%APR and 1.03%APR while my FICO score is nothing better than average with no current black marks/strikes. Plus, with such a low APR% the savings far far exceeds any ‘rebate’ offers you might get in lieu thereof on a brand new car.

    Use, Abuse, and Screw BofA every chance you get.

    How much plainer does it need to be.

  • BofA doesn’t respect any of its depositors. I ditched them years ago for screwing around with my deposits. I set up a savings account as an overdraft for my checking, not wanting to go into hock with one of those lines of credit banks will set up. Lo and behold, BofA began dumping the money into the checking, $100 at a time, without telling me, and without my actually being overdrawn (just really low at the end of the month). Then they hit me with fees for the savings balance being “too low.” I protested, and emptied and closed the savings account.

    They replied by doing the same with a line of credit – shoveling money into my checking without my knowledge and without cause – and then charged me 16% APR for the balance on a “loan” I never took out, along with fees for being “overdrawn.” Cancelled everything at that point. I was still out a few hundred bucks plus, but no more.

    This latest news doesn’t surprise me at all. He who is untrustworthy in small affairs will prove untrustworthy in large ones. BofA can go under tomorrow for all I care, and good riddance to them.

    Some friends of mine got a loan modification at B of A in October. The interest rate is 8%! Why they signed the papers is a mystery to me. They were told they could refinance in 6 months. I told then the going rate is 3.25 – 4%. Apparently they were held to the rate that was paid when the house was first purchased in 1998.

    Engaging the services of a competent attorney could result in your OWNING a significant chunk of Bank of America (along with sending a few BofA employees to jail).

  • Observer

    Bank of America has been a scum organization ever since the founding Gianini family separated from the ownership a few decades ago. Fifteen years ago because Bof A was the only bank convenient to our house we held accounts with them. The final straw came when my then computer savvy fifteen year old son did networking, setting up, and solving computer problems for friends,work associates, the neighborhood Catholic school, neighbors & those who heard about his expertise by word of mouth. He usually netted many hundreds dollars a month kept in his room before making a weekly deposit to his account. Because I did not want hundreds of dollars laying around the as his earning grew quickly I insisted he make regular deposits.
    One day when I drove him to the bank he CAME OUT STEAMING MAD AFTER HE was told by Bof A staff that if he made more than 2 deposits a month they would charge him a $10 fee per deposit. When he told me of the B of A caper I literally leaped out of the car and stormed the operations officer’s desk and closed my three large accounts. As a parting insult they announced I had to pay charges for the cashiers checks for my balances to which I responded start counting out the cash for those substantial withdrawals as well as for the balance of my son’s several thousand dollars held in his savings account for college.
    Since my cash withdrawals would be beyond their loose cash amounts B of A waived the cashiers check fees but my son for sweet revenge decided he wanted his balance in cash.

  • That’s just unbelievable! How dare they? I think American Spirit Arms has a lawsuit, and I’d be changing banks really fast. Institutions which impose their liberal bias on clients is just wrong.

    My daughter was a freshman in college during the 2008 presidential election. As the only conservative in the school (practically), she took a lot of abuse, not just from the other students, but from the professors! She left the school because of this push to make everyone think like they do.

    That’s sad for you to go through running around with filling up paperwork. Moral of story please research every well known brand offered organization before you support them.

    Bouayad suggests Alexandre will need a strong team to succeed. “The key for their diversification as a family firm will be to bring the right people in alongside Alexandre,” he says. After graduating from the Ecole Supérieure du Commerce Extérieur outside Paris, Alexandre worked at Bear Stearns as an analyst in the mergers and acquisitions group for two years. He spent the next two years at Argan Capital, a European private equity firm that was spun off from Bank of America (BAC).

    On joining Rothschild, Alexandre was charged with helping to set up and build the bank’s private equity unit. Thanks in part to his efforts, private equity revenue rose 37 percent last year to €78.5 million, just under 7 percent of the firm’s total. “In normal market conditions, someone at that age coming in with a view to taking over would have been ludicrous,” says Jason Kennedy, CEO of Kennedy Group, a recruiting firm. “But given the state of banking today, older doesn’t necessarily mean wiser.”
    Isn’t Bank of America got connection with Rothschild?
