It has been reported that the CIA and the Treasury Department have been monitoring wire transfers and other global money flows from the so-called clearing house or bankers' consortium called SWIFT (Society for Worldwide Interbank Financial Telecommunication), which is based in Belgium. Again they caim it’s being done under the guise of fighting "terrorism."
The U.S. Treasury Department Secretary John Snow admitted Friday that they’d been mining data from SWIFT, and they have been regularly mining every transaction.
So here are the parameters. If you wire $10,000 three times within 10 days, even in the United States, that puts you on the list.
One of our own subscribers once ran afoul of this regulation when he was wiring money between his brokerage accounts for a margin call, and on the third time, he tried to wire $10,000 from one brokerage account into another within a one-week period, the money was 'frozen' for 60 days by order of the Department of Homeland Security.
