Pay Bill, Be Thought A Terrorist
"They paid down some debt. The balance on their JCPenney Platinum MasterCard had gotten to an unhealthy level. So they sent in a large payment, a check for $6,522.
And an alarm went off. A red flag went up. The Soehnges' behavior was found questionable."
"The amount they had sent in was much larger than their normal monthly payment. And if the increase hits a certain percentage higher than that normal payment, Homeland Security has to be notified. And the money doesn't move until the threat alert is lifted."
Wow! I guess all terrorists pay their bills down before blowing themselves and others up.
I had heard that any bank transaction over $5,000 dollars was watched and I guess this proves it.
That is why I only deal in 10's and 20's. (Or maybe that is all I have)
