Do not use Safety Deposit Boxes

Dinarvets – by Don Paul


According to in-house memos now circulating, the DHS has issued orders to banks across America which announce to them that “under the Patriot Act” the DHS has the absolute right to seize, without any warrant whatsoever, any and all customer bank accounts, to make “periodic and unannounced” visits to any bank to open and inspect the contents of “selected safe deposit boxes.”  

Further, the DHS “shall, at the discretion of the agent supervising the search, remove, photograph or seize as evidence” any of the following items “bar gold, gold coins, firearms of any kind unless manufactured prior to 1878, documents such as passports or foreign bank account records, pornography or any material that, in the opinion of the agent, shall be deemed of to be of a contraband nature.”

DHS memos also state that banks are informed that any bank employee, on any level, that releases “improper” “classified DHS Security information” to any member of the public, to include the customers whose boxes have been clandestinely opened and inspected and “any other party, to include members of the media” and further “that the posting of any such information on the internet will be grounds for the immediate termination of the said employee or employees and their prosecution under the Patriot Act.” Safety deposit box holders and depositors are not given advanced notice when failed banks shut their doors.

If people have their emergency money in a safe deposit box or an account in a bank that closes, they will not be allowed into the bank to get it out. They can knock on the door and beg to get in but the sheriff’s department or whoever is handling the closure will simply say “no” because they are just following orders.

Deposit box and account holders are not warned of the hazards of banking when they sign up. It is not until they need to get their cash or valuables out in a hurry that they find themselves in trouble.

Rules governing access to safe deposit boxes and money held in accounts are written into the charter of each bank. The charter is the statement of policy under which the bank is allowed by the government to do business. These rules are subject to change at any time by faceless bureaucrats who are answerable to no one. They can be changed without notice, without the agreement of the people, and against their will. People can complain but no one will care because this is small potatoes compared to the complaints that will be voiced when the executive order that governs national emergencies is enforced.

That order allows the suspension of habeas corpus and all rights guaranteed under the Bill of Rights.

A look at the fine print of the contract signed when a safety deposit box is opened reveals that in essence the signer has given to the bank whatever property he has put into that deposit box. When times are good people will be allowed open access to their safe deposit box and the property that is in it. This also applies to their bank accounts.

But when times get really bad, many may find that the funds they have placed on deposit and the property they thought was secured in the safe deposit box now belong to the bank, not to them. Although this was probably not explained to them when they signed their signature card, this is what they were agreeing to.

During the Great Depression in the early 1930’s people thought that many banks were going to fail. They were afraid they would lose their money so they went in mass to take it out, in what is known as a run on the banks. The government closed the banks to protect them from angry depositors who wanted their money back. Throughout history, governments have acted to protect the interests of banks and the wealthy people who own them, not the interests of depositors or box holders.

In a time of emergency, people will have no recourse if access to their safe deposit box and bank accounts is denied. If they are keeping money in a bank that would be needed in an emergency or in a time when credit is no longer free flowing, they may not be able to get it out of the bank. The emergency may occur at night or on a weekend or holiday when the bank is closed.

The solution is to take emergency cash or valuables out of the safe deposit box or bank account and secure them somewhere else, like in a home safe. An even better idea may be to close the safe deposit box account completely, letting someone else entertain the illusion of safety.

Americans have learned a few things since the Great Depression. They now have the FDIC to liquidate any failed banks.

The FDIC promises to set up a series of dates and times when safe deposit box renters can access their boxes by appointment to remove their property and surrender their keys. The FDIC also promises to mail bank customers an announcement of the dates for such events and include a question and answer page that addresses safe deposit box access.

The people have the FDIC to give them back the money they had on deposit that they were unable to get out of any failed bank that carries FDIC insurance. Sheila Bair, head of the FDIC, promises that depositor`s money will be available in 24 hours or less. But people should remember that the FDIC is just another bureaucracy, and it`s probably best not to rely on a bureaucracy in an emergency.

  1. Only a total sucker or a real retard would keep anything of any value whatsoever in a “safety” deposit box in a bank. That is an excellent suggestion by Abbie Hoffman, Aggressor! I was thinking maybe the severed middle finger of a Wall Street bankster….or maybe have the finger sticking out of the bung-hole of a dead rat.

  2. Why are some of my posts that suggest legal actions about ways to hide and prevent confiscation of property by gmt thugs, being removed? this isn’t the only thread where this has happened. My suggestions were not about making anything lethal or harmful. Just ways to legally hide ones own property. It it the site admins doing this or hackers who are frightened of my ideas?

    1. Kim,
      I didn’t put your posts up because you are telling people to bury their guns. If they do that, they are not going to have any guns when the Chekists come to take them out and put a .40 cal hollow point in their head. We must hold our weapons of war by right and refuse to relinquish them.
      Do you really think that when they come to your house to get the gun they believe you have, that they are just going to go away because you tell them you lost it on a hunting trip?
      The bottom line is they want to take the guns so they can kill us without getting killed themselves.
      So you just go ahead and bury your guns and enjoy your stay at the FEMA camp for the rest of your life, however long that is.

      1. Not where where they “think” the weapons are. I’d stand a much better chance of taking more of them out as a guerrilla than in a face to face confrontation; probably dead anyway, but much more likely to take some with me. I am not alone in this. I hope others are working with trusted parties? No one can go it alone. When they’re on the move: I’ll know, along with buddies, before their arrival. I really hope they take my “survival” food…only I know which will be some Nazis’ LAST MEAL! You do have more than one stash ?
        Our primary objective will be surviving the hungry, thirsty, civilian mobs. By the time that’s over with: I don’t expect there will be much “government” left to deal with.

        1. Kim KIM KIm,if each of us kill just 1 of these usurping traitors this thing will be over in about 5 minutes WE HAVE THEM OUT NUMBERED OUTGUNNED AND OUT LOVED FOR AMERICA,100MILLION patriots dont have to HIDE NO STINKIN GUNS or their love for the CONSTITUTION or the AMERICAN WAY OF LIFE. Now dont be scared as “fear is the only weapon these turds have the bluff ,nothing of real or lasting substance only death and destruction,FEAR IS THE MIND KILLER there is nothing to fear but ENSLAVEMENT everything else is freedom.

        2. Kim, make sure you don`t have any guns registered in your name – well I guess that it won`t make any difference if they are coming to get you. Yea Kim, Guellilla warfare is good. A single cell is better though. Have your alternative weapons ready and be well versed and be prepared to use them. Best of luck to ya.

    2. Yep, a lot of good hideing your guns/weapons will do ya. hahaha, lol That`s funny. Do you live in the US?, cause that is just not the way things are working here anymore kim.

  3. Everybody talks about being the shooter during a counter revolution. No one talks about the equally important tasks of providing logistics to the fighters. No one talks about organizing intel and communications for the fighters. No one talks about getting false ID cards, defeating biometrics, or the public information and political wings of a resistance that need to be created to have a successful resistance.

    You cant just shoot your way to freedom, It takes much more than that. From the truck driver willing to give rides, to the private plane pilot doing covert insertions, to the electronics guru building comm equipment, to the farmer providing food, to the gas station owner providing fuel to resistance vehicles. You need machine shop owners willing to repair and build equipment, welders, even tailors to make clothes.

    1. Well said. Too much talk and threats about the use of violence will get people rounded up in a heartbeat. I see a lot of needless paranoia that will lead some to react to imagined threats. this is going to be like the opening day of deer season with a bunch of newbies who have a serious case of “buck fever”. I don’t go on opening day, when I do; I survey the other hunters, if their equipment is all pristine and they’re jumpy and constantly looking thru their scopes; I give it a few days to settle down. Though I don’t have a rack or coat of fur, I have been mistaken for the four legged prey. there’s going to be a lot of “single cells” out there that won’t have any idea of who is a real threat. Best to lay low till they get each other out of the way.
      You’re dead on about logistics and communication. A “single cell” won’t have the better advantage in situational awareness if he don’t have anyone relaying information about positions, numbers, type of equipment, and direction of movement.
      I work with a few fellow veterans, all of us with the training and experience, also the skill set for advanced gunsmithing and safe modifications of commercially available ammo. We are dedicated to defending our families and communities from rogue entities who may intend to do us harm. The real test will be the complete disintegration of society as we now know it. That: is what we are prepared to face. Our oath still stands to defend our people from all enemies; foreign and domestic.

  4. Goad them into busting your SD boxes… into which you have put your shit and nothing else. Actual and literal shit. Easy to make and catch.

    Let’s see them handle that. “EEeeewwww gross!!”
