The government of the USA in 2013 made a new law that used its agencies to discourage the banks from engaging in business with the “high risk businesses” that were believed to be exploiting the consumers. The aim of this program was to make the businesses that were listed as the ones in the high risk of exploiting the consumer run out of business. This law lost its effect when it included a lot of legal businesses that were considered to be a scam to the consumers and that included the fire arms and ammunition.
This new law also affected a lot of businesses like the Independent Sales Organizations led by Andrew Phillips Cardflex who were accused of helping the scammer drain money from the consumer’s accounts. This law is unfair to those people that are being choked out of their business yet they are doing legal businesses. So since there are people and organizations that are there to protect the defenseless, they started a fight against this law until it was said to end in 2017.
The gun shops and other businesses were receiving notices from their respective banks that they will not be able to work with them. This was because the banks among many other businesses were forced to terminate long term relationships with these listed companies that they had no problem with. Some, like the Andrew Phillips Cardflex were sued for allegedly helping a listed company to steal from the consumers accounts. When you get a notice from your bank then you have no other option than to make other financial arrangements that will not only inconvenience you, but also cost you. Both the financial organizations and the listed businesses are set to incur losses. There will be losses to both the listed and the organizations and the institutions that are doing business with them.
Apart from people losing their businesses that they use to feed their families, they are being dragged to court due to this law. Anyone who has been in court will tell you that the financial burden that comes with them are usually unbearable. The program was ended last year but the businesses are yet to heal if not stop being targeted. Such law that exploit others at the expense of others is against the core purpose of the government. We should think of those people that depend on the businesses that were listed as “high risk” to feed their families. These kind of regulations should be eliminated because they go against the very core function of laws.
