Sue Brady, Independent Marketing consultant caught up with author and privacy expert, Grant Hall at a West Coast seminar. A portion of the interview has been reproduced for readers.
Grant Hall interviewed by Sue Brady, August, 2010.
S.B. Your new e-book, Bank Secrecy: Financial Privacy Crisis Plan and Resource Guide is going to be available for purchase at the website soon. Tell us about the book, Grant.
G.H. Based on customer demand for personal privacy information, money and property confidentiality rank first of all privacy categories. This is based on research compiled through our website at www.PrivacyCrisis.com over a three year period with a sample of people who subscribe to our free privacy information series of courses and of those who purchased my first book, Privacy Crisis.
The public accepts order takers who represent the military industrial complex machine in the form of clerks at banks who dictate to them while demanding their most private and personal information for the privilege of storing money at financial institutions. Whose business is it what property a citizen owns? Why would any sane person living in a free country tell his employee what property he owns? And, why would government want to track and trace citizens’ money and property in the first place? It is necessary to understand why before one becomes motivated to keep money and property confidential.
Bank Secrecy was written to provide insight as to why it is necessary to have financial privacy to keep free. Resources and information are provided to empower individuals and businesses with the ability to bank secretly and hold property privately.
S.B. Are you saying that it is still possible to bank anonymously in the U.S.A. and abroad today? How is it possible to do that? We hear news people tell us about the UBS case and others?
G.H. Switzerland was a banking haven which succumbed to pressures from U.S. government agencies’ at the expense of customers of certain banks, and is no longer a good choice for bank secrecy in my opinion.
Many main stream media sources provide inaccurate information and discourage privacy rights in my opinion.
Institutions and entities listed in my new book, Bank Secrecy enable a privacy-seeking individual to bank without a Social Security number and hold investments that cannot legally be seized for his personal debt. U.S. institutions and offshore companies are listed as resources for these purposes.
I have bought a home with techniques I coined as an invisible home mortgage. That is, I borrowed the money and paid for the home without anyone or any credit bureau knowing the source of my funds. Also, through the principles outlined in the book, one’s home can remain private when money is borrowed according to the “invisible home mortgage principle.”
I believe those who are interested in avoiding a seizure such as those cited and documented by footnotes in the book, should learn banking privacy to prevent asset and bank account seizures.
S.B. According to your book, Bank Secrecy, one man’s finances were raided in England by mistake when he was believed to be a deadbeat dad. Dental and medical patients’ money were stolen by i.d. thieves. A corporation’s assets were stolen by the government in 2007 and the case has not gone to trial as of August, 2010. These cases are documented in the book with references. Grant, it appears money and financial privacy are necessary as an insurance policy to avoid the possibility of going broke through a seizure or a theft. Could these thefts and seizures by government and other criminals have been avoided through the practices outlined in the book?
The interview conclusion will be posted later.
