    Default What bank to put my money in??

    Help! So recently Bank of America has been freezing sex worker's accounts and taking their money. A cam girl had 10K frozen. Chase has done this too for yearssss now. Wondering how you deposit your money, how much you deposit at a time, and what banks you use? I'm worried I'm depositing too much/having too many 1's (lol). I use the drive through ATM to deposit so I don't have to face judgement by a bank teller inside the bank and I currently have BOA now. I'm 1000% going to change banks just don't know where to go from here. Thanks!

    Diversify

    Keep some/Use as cash, change some in for money orders (hold safe in deposit boxes - but be aware of expiration dates), deposit some in bank account then transfer to investment funds, etc. But be sure to log all earning to report for income tax

    *This is my opinion and i am not a banking or tax professional

    Why/How is this even legal? If the money was LEGALLY obtained, then wtf is the problem. Let people be, dang.

    I switched to wells fargo myself. They welcome porn stars (not that I am one but if they can bank there so can a camgirl IMO).

    http://www.tmz.com/2014/04/26/chase-...s-wells-fargo/

    They have had issues and are paying fines for it, but I really think all banks have shady things going on and just haven't gotten caught on all of it. (For instance I got a check awhile back from Chase for a class action lawsuit from them reordering deposits to create overdrafts).

    So far I'm happy with Wells Fargo. No branches near me but most all my banking is online anyway. I do keep a local bank account in addition for things where I need a branch. Having a bank account is really a necessary evil for proving income and convenience.

    I have a credit union and I only deposit what goes immediately back out for bills.

    Chase is known for hating sex workers. Don't talk about your money or where it comes from. Tell them you are a waitress if you HAVE to.

    Wow! I have chase and I had no idea about any of that! Kinda makes me want to not use them or set up a separate “stripper” account with another bank or CU.

    I looooove my credit union UFCU. I recommend them to everyone. They have the least bullshit policies of any bank I've ever heard of - just really easy to work with, and they do share-banking with other credit unions, so if you're out of town, it's fee-free to do bank stuff at another credit union.

    Sigh. Not surprising at this point. I have a Wells Fargo account as well as a credit union. I love my credit union because their policies are extremely reasonable, and they don't nickel-and-dime you for everything like most banks. The main reason I have two banks is because I can pit the two against each other for mortgages/car loans. Plus I use the credit union for bills and my side income, and the Wells Fargo account for my main income. WF has never given me a problem or asked any questions about large cash deposits.

    I have Wells Fargo, but then I share an account with my husband and we both have “vanilla” day jobs.

    I used PNC without any problems, it depends a lot on what area you are in though. I opened my PNC account with 5k cash and then made 1Kk + deposits pretty often and no one ever cared, but that was in Center City, Philadelphia. I made a ~300 dollar deposit once at my local hometown bank with a lot side eye.

    I recently complained on here that I was having a lot of "issues" trying to open a bank account while travel dancing. I found that Wells Fargo was asking me too many questions I've never been hassled with when opening new bank accounts. I don't know if it was just the branch I was at or the whole chain though.
