I was in WF (Wells Fargo) the other day and I’ll leave you with the story here:
I walked into Wells Fargo today because of an issue with my debit card. I was told over the phone I’d have to go to my issuing bank to take care of the problem. So, I figured this would be a good time to bring along a ‘foreclosure notice’. I was able to sit down right away with the assistant manager and we settled my first problem easily. Then I asked her if she’d heard of the foreclosure of banks and government. Ha! You should have seen the look on her face, it was just a strange kind of quizzical stare, and after what I’d said sunk in over the course of about ten seconds or so, she slowly shook her head. I also should add that she was very friendly and helpful, just stunned.
I opened up the large manilla envelope and pulled out the notice, briefly continuing my explanation. She began to warm up immediately asking where I’d heard of it, I was playing along as though I’d read up on it and already checked it out. We began talking about the Federal Reserve bank notes being worthless and she agreed. We talked about the home foreclosure situation around the world.
She told me WF had actually been issuing checks to bank customers who’d been foreclosed on and already lost their homes.
They of course, were asked to sign waivers releasing WF of any wrong doing and promising no future ‘legal action’. She was extremely interested in all I had to say and asked if I’d like to talk to her manager (the branch manager) who was also there. I agreed right away and she led me over to her desk just around the corner. It was a large open area so there were quite a few other bank personnel at their desks, I’m sure listening in.
I sat down, introducing myself and she was very cordial as well. We talked briefly about banking in general as it applies to the public and business. We touched briefly on the home foreclosures and how Wall Street started bundling mortgages together into investment bundles which led to the creation of the “sub-prime” mortgage; granting mortgages to people who normally would not qualify, blah, blah.
We talked of the Federal Reserve although she knew of it, or was told it was a type of currency insurance exchange which I thought was kind of interesting. Anyway, both of them knew nothing of the pending RV of currencies, Basil III compliance, PPs or anything else which doesn’t really mean anything and I didn’t expect them to know much at this level, and maybe they were also told to remain quiet, but I didn’t think it meant much.
The big thing for me was their extreme interest in all of this and the history behind it all. The bank manager asked for more info and asked if I could come back or if she could email me with questions. Absolutely! I ran home and printed out two sets of CNs and dropped them off as well. I think this is the quickest way to stir interest right at the source because the people in these levels are starved for ‘real info’ and seem to know they aren’t really getting it.
I would have been happy to just be able to drop off the info and leave but they were really receptive. That’s not to say that all will be but it won’t hurt to print out some of these notices and drop them off. I guarantee these people will take them home to look them over because it has everything to do with what they seem to know is already in the ‘air’.
