Privacy Invasion, Credit Bureaus and how to prevent a Privacy Crisis

Worried about public and private agencies learning about you and your families’ most intimate personal financial privacy details? You’re not alone. In fact, most people seem to accept the fact that certain “institutions” have your business and personal money and property details in their data bases.

Readers may be interested in how to live privately.

As this article’s subject concerns financial privacy, James Clark King, LLC, publisher has free financial resources which may be of interest to those who wish to preserve and protect their financial privacy.

The credit bureaus have long been established as the “know-it-all” agencies-private agencies that know all there is to know about you and your finances. In fact, one privacy expert, Jack Dunning who was recently interviewed by Privacy Crisis and Privacy Crisis Banking author and privacy expert, Grant Hall, believes the credit bureaus are here to stay and it is difficult to thwart their monopoly and manipulation of the average person’s financial life. I’m paraphrasing Mr. Dunning’s responses to Mr. Hall’s questions throughout the interview and this interpretation is mine as well as my own opinion of his responses. It seems this is a consensus view among privacy experts-that our privacy is evaporating and that there is nothing we can do about it. Grant Hall interviewed PT Shamrock who stresses that privacy is indeed deteriorating and provides insightful information for the perpetual traveler during the interview.

Both Mr. Dunning and PT Shamrock are quite experienced in the privacy arena. And their views are noted and taken seriously by this author.

I wondered what Mr. Grant Hall thinks about our privacy being invaded and whether he echo’s the consensus of the above experts on the subject. Mr. Hall has done radio interviews on the subject of personal and business privacy. In addition, he has written a number of articles on financial privacy. So I contacted him for a mini-interview for this article for the benefit of our readers. Here is the bulk of that interview:

Sue Holtzen: Grant, I am glad you agreed to field my questions. Thanks for your help and clarification on the privacy invasion we as American’s and others in the world face concerning privacy. Tell me, Grant, what is your view on our current state of privacy?

Grant Hall: Hello, Sue. It’s my pleasure to speak with you again. Thanks for thinking of me. In regard to your question concerning our state of privacy, I believe we have to break privacy down, both geographically as well as the kind of privacy we discuss in order to provide a picture of the state of privacy at the current time.

Sue Holtzen: I see. How about the credit bureaus? The three major credit bureaus seem to dictate to the American public as far as their credit or borrowing worthiness is concerned. This seems like a monopoly with Big Brother dictating to the public as well as those who the public wants to do business with. A historical log of the public’s financial history-not always accurate reporting I might add is a permanent record of credit bureaus.

Grant Hall: The credit bureaus do, in my view have a reporting monopoly on the history of Americans’ financial history. And it is not always accurate as you point out, Sue. In my interview with Mr. Dunning, the credit bureaus were discussed and he does, I believe agree with me on that point-that the credit bureaus are dictating to the public and the major ones, the big three are difficult to challenge. In fact, it is my experience they infrequently answer their phones and require endless documentation in order to contest a simple error-perhaps an incorrect date of a payment to a credit bureau subscriber by a clerical person. Something such as this, a simple error can drastically lower a credit score and wreck a person’s creditability.

Sue Hotzen: Do you have any ideas on how to handle these privacy invasions imposed upon us by the credit bureaus?

Grant Hall: Yes. I do not subscribe to the popular view that we have lost our privacy to the credit bureaus. I’m speaking about U.S. privacy now and specifically about the big three credit bureaus. I want to narrow our discussion to these points, please.

Sue Holtzen: Okay, Grant.

Grant Hall: It’s possible to live very well without the credit bureaus’ interfering with your life. And I believe in borrowing and credit as a matter of fact. But I do not believe in bad borrowing. Nor do I believe in being slaves to credit bureaus and their institutional friends.

Sue Holtzen: Please explain.

Grant Hall: Okay. Good borrowing is generally limited to business borrowing following a thorough analysis and a study of the asset to be purchased with borrowed money. I’m in the minority with this line of thinking. I follow these principles. I borrowed money to buy our last home. The credit bureaus were never aware of this debt. That method is fully explained in my financial privacy e-Book, Privacy Crisis Banking.

Sue Holtzen: I read Privacy Crisis Banking, Grant. Essentially, you used money with very low rates or just fees for the transaction, I believe, and the debt was actually shifted to another entity. Is that correct?

Grant Hall: Yes. During that transaction, the cost of money was very low. And I borrowed against an asset and the money was paid back with a credit line. And there were no restrictions on what could be purchased with the money. It’s important to always stay above board in these more complicated and non-traditional loans and transactions. I stress that point. As outlined in the book, Privacy Crisis Banking, large transactions or loans can be achieved while the credit bureaus are unaware of the reason for the purchase. In other words, privacy is achieved. In this case, home privacy, perhaps the most important part of one’s total privacy plan was kept a secret. That is quite different than going to the mortgage company, getting “approved” for X amount of money and buying a house over a thirty year period-a bad idea in my opinion, unless one is truly at the beginning of an uptrend in houses in the area one is buying into and then leverage can be utilized very advantageously. However, in my view, giving the credit bureaus, the lending company and anyone who has access to the credit bureaus’ reports a roadmap to your front door is always a bad idea. That’s why I stress non-traditional borrowing for personal and business privacy.

Sue Holtzen: Thank you, Grant. We’ll continue another time.

Grant Hall: Thank you, Sue.

Keep Your Privacy While Getting Medical Treatment

Can a privacy conscious person keep her privacy in the face of a serious disability? Will a long term illness or treatment for an injury compromise a person’s privacy lifestyle? These are questions many will face at some point in their lifetimes. This piece will address potential privacy compromising issues one will face during a period of illness.
Calling a physician’s office may be the first privacy medical hurdle one has to clear as medical office personnel often attempt to obtain your health insurance information prior to making an appointment. You will be asked for your insurance company name, your policy and certificate number, and the doctor’s assistant will verify your coverage and co payment amount as you’re on the telephone. Your name, address and telephone number will be required information. Often your e-mail address will be requested but not required. Social Security Numbers will sometimes be requested and it is possible to keep this important identifier mum-and it is recommended you do so. Grant’s books are clear about how important it is to keep your Social Security Number confidential as you prevent identity thieves and other criminals out of your life while living a privacy lifestyle. In fact, preventing medical identity theft should be a primary concern as you get treatment as medical identity theft is one of the fastest growing white collar crimes in the country.
Once you have met the basic requirements for a medium level privacy lifestyle and have this identity theft prevention plan system in place, you will be prepared to avoid unwanted privacy invasions when an emergency medical condition warrants medical treatment. Your mailing address will not lead anyone to your doorstep, the telephone number provided for medical treatment cannot be traced to you or your family, and you can meet the requirements of your medical providers while keeping yourself safe during this period of time. If you need guidance on how to get started, we have resources that will help.
Free personal privacy courses are available for those who wish to receive these by e-mail. Courses are written by Grant Hall, author of Privacy Crisis and Privacy Crisis Banking.

Privacy Crisis Banking secrecy and financial privacy plan

Protecting privacy is essential for freedom lovers and no aspect of privacy is more important than financial privacy and banking privacy.

 Chapter 5: Check Cashing Stores



The check cashing service establishments and a few other
businesses issue reloadable debit cards that function as a regular debit card
and have features similar to a commercial bank account, while offering more
privacy and convenience.

The reason many who live beneath the radar gravitate toward
these types of accounts is because the institutions that issue them do not
usually have requirements as stringent as the brick and mortar commercial
banks—even though the institutions behind these reloadable debit cards are in
fact banks. Also, the bank account/debit card account is normally not
discovered in asset searches for several reasons: It is considered a debit card issued by a financial services company,
not a bank. However, the account has a Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation
(FDIC) policy attached to it, so in theory, at least, the account is a real bank account. But a private
investigator or other asset searcher would be hard-pressed and would
necessarily expend large amounts of time, effort, and money to locate such a
bank account.

Why? During my extensive research on this subject, I
discovered the process of debit card issuance, account service administration,
and financial account recording by the bank to go like this: First, the check
cashing company or check cashing store is the agent for the financial services
company that issues the card. Account holder information is verified by the
financial services company, and the card is mailed to the customer. A bank’s
name, the sponsor, will be on the card itself, and the
account will be FDIC insured.

Are the funds actually held at the bank itself in the
individual’s name on the card? Yes and no. While the bank stands behind the
accounts with their FDIC insurance policy as a safety net in case of
insolvency, the actual account is not in the same database as checking and
savings accounts opened by customers who walk in and open an account with the
bank—when such services are available, that is. Therefore, since the bank
standing behind the issuer of the debit card does not have an account on their
books of the debit card account holder, the individual may in fact be able to
practice a high level of bank privacy with this type of bank account.

Also, it is common for the sponsor bank to be in another
state far away from where the card was purchased by the customer at the check
cashing store. Essentially, the financial privacy-seeking customer has two
built-in advantages to using a debit card as a bank account, in addition to the
aforementioned “cash and carry” advantage and the furnishing of less
privacy-invasive personal and business information than required by a
commercial bank—distance of the sponsoring bank and the non-traditional nature
of the account itself.

Chapter 8

8: Offshore and Domestic Banking: Considerations and Preparation


Considering the aforementioned business
seizure case of the NORFED Corporation—and others that can be discovered
through Internet searches and that have occurred to both businesses and
individuals—what defensive strategy must be put in place by a business manager
in charge of the company assets or a controller of a high-net-worth
individual’s assets, in order to withstand seizure attempts by government,
court orders, or others? And which structure is best—an offshore asset
protection structure, or a domestic plan with the foundational bank account
being what I have coined the Ultimate
Bank Secrecy Account.

 Let us draw comparisons
between two such accounts for illustration purposes, while utilizing known
foreign and domestic banking resources, as described and listed in this book.

The resources provided have been used to
set up bank secrecy accounts for individuals and businesses. Verification that
the resources have been used for individuals and business entities, as
described in this comparison, has been made prior to this book going to print.



Hypothetical theory-laden ideas
concerning something as important as money and banking secrecy are not
productive. Let’s deal with specifics, in this comparison of foreign banking
with U.S. banking resources, as far as bank secrecy is concerned.

Foreign banks listed in this book as
resources for bank secrecy will want all the information mentioned in the
sub-chapter heading of Offshore Bank
Account Requirements,
as described earlier in this chapter. The fact that
these references are required and have to go through various communication
channels to reach the bank account representative results in some losses of
personal and/or business privacy. You never know how many law clerks, legal
assistants, bankers, brokers, or other office personnel store your contact
information with a foreign bank, as you innocently try to gather references as
account opening requirements. Add possible e-mail, fax, and telephone
communication to the mix, and you have a strong potential likelihood of having
your most important personal and confidential data being intercepted by some
bystanders at home, not to mention the customs guys who inspect your
courier-generated package full of notarized passport copies or your application
for that foreign “secret account,” and you’re sure to be discovered and
possibly marked as a “person of interest” even before you step into the batter’s box. Of course, you can thwart
the efforts of all this discovery by traveling to that foreign land with
paperwork in hand and hope you have it right, when you finally arrive. Either
way, opening a current account—a bank account for a business or for personal
use—is not such a huge deal, once you learn what you are up against, and I have
provided foreign bank resources that will serve your needs.

Remember that a current account for
business purposes or personal use is best handled under another entity name. An
LLC based in Nevada or Nevis will work fine for business purposes, although the
Nevis LLC may present obstacles for doing business in the states, in certain
business circumstances. A multitude of other choices are available, as well.
Base your entity decisions on your business requirements and seek advice from
counsel or your accountant. Concerning a personal account, using one’s true
name is not advisable. An offshore trustee for the Offshore Asset Protection
Trust can work, in conjunction with your trustee at home, to coordinate the
opening of a bank account, when you are already a client of Southpac or other
company that forms asset protection trusts. In any case, such a relationship
will provide you with the shields to make a high-level bank secrecy plan

Investments can be kept in a variety of
offshore entities, or a Nevada Limited Partnership can be used, while the
offshore asset protection trust owns the partnership. Investments are a
separate subject, and this comparison is for only the business or personal
current bank account, with bank secrecy as a primary objective.

Clearly, with private entity
registration—either in Nevada, as I describe in Privacy Crisis, or offshore, using a registration company to
register foreign trusts or LLCs—the business manager or individual desiring
banking privacy can accomplish this objective. Maintaining the secrecy will be
difficult to impractical. And what is so special about an offshore bank
account, anyhow? You can accomplish bank secrecy using the methods described
next, and with the resources provided in this book. In addition, the
institutions are more practical to use and just as secret as the foreign
institutions today, and the exceptions, are for the traveling business man or
lady who spends a reasonable amount of time offshore. Then an offshore current
account may be advantageous and most convenient.



Bank secrecy with a domestic bank, equal
to any foreign bank account secrecy, is available today, when the account is set up correctly using the resources in this book. I
call this type of account the Ultimate
Bank Secrecy Account.
This account is not understood by those proclaiming
to have financial privacy expertise, because it is dependent on human
variables, in part, though not entirely. And this type of account is not
absolute, its conditions varying from institution to institution and from
manager to manager. However, I have adequate testing completed on this type of
account, and while each institutional manager may not meet a privacy advocate’s
highest privacy requirements, some have and do. This domestic account is
providing customers with bank secrecy, with substantial bank features and
advantages not available to foreigners who bank offshore, not to mention the
greater convenience of managing the account completely online, without a messy paper trail of bank
statements or other common commercial banking records.

With prepaid debit cards bearing the
Visa or MasterCard logo sold by check cashing stores (see Chapter 5), a bank
account for individuals or businesses can be established, and banking privacy
can be accomplished.

Certain managers of businesses have purchased
the card from institutions referenced in this book and used the online bank
account tied to the card for business purposes. The card has been held in the
name of individuals and/or business names, at the discretion of the store
manager selling the card. If you want this card for business purposes, please
be candid with the store manager or regional manager about your business needs,
and perhaps he/she can accommodate your business. Substitute numbers have been
used in lieu of the Social Security Number and Employer Identification Number.

Regardless of whether the account is for
personal or business use, the account—which becomes an online personal bank
account or a business account—can be an untraceable account, when it is set up
properly. In-depth communication and research has been completed on this
account. Certain stores may be unaware of the flexibility of the higher-level
management of their own company or the financial institutions managing the bank
accounts for the sponsor banks. But recognize that your job is to find
management who wants your business and has the respect to provide the banking
services you require individually or as a manager of the business account you
set up with the institution.

Further, store managers at institutions
referenced in this book have guaranteed that these accounts can be opened
without any tax identifier whatsoever—a huge privacy advantage by itself. More
than one store manager voluntarily advised me that the Ultimate Bank Secrecy Account would withstand bank database
searches, due to its being inside the financial walls of the financial services
company structure or nestled deep within the corporate account database,
depending on the company. And in either case, these types of accounts are not held on the banking books of
commercial banks as customer accounts—business or personal—and will surely
withstand private investigator database searches, especially when the privately
registered business name is used to open the account —and the account is
maintained under this fictitious name without
Social Security numbers, employer identification numbers, home addresses,
mothers’ maiden names, and the like—common commercial banking data used as



Your Right to Financial Privacy

 Right to financial privacy

Bankers and banks dislike your questioning their polices-often they don’t know the source of their money, let alone their bank’s policies.

Try asking a manager to define the Federal Reserve System. I did. In fact, a few years ago, I asked ten bank managers to define the Federal Reserve System, and not one could do it.

Think the member banks of the Federal Reserve System have a right to track and trace you and your property? Whose money is it anyway? Do they want your SSN, home address, home telephone number, and previous banking historical information to track and trace you so that when you become suspicious, they can “freeze” your account? Is carrying cash grounds for having it taken by law enforcement?

Today, residents of  Police State U.S.A. need banking secrecy more than any time in history. Citizens’ money and property are being confiscated without cause. A truck driver’s truck was searched and police discovered $432,000, the money was taken, the driver was not charged, and he was released.

Do you risk having your cash or bank account stolen by criminals, discovered by private investigators, or fear an account garnishment by “you know who?”

Privacy Crisis Banking: excerpts from Grant Hall’s New Book

Privacy Crisis Banking: Bank Secrecy Plan & Resource Guide to Protect Identity, Money, and Property is a New book written by Grant Hall and published by James Clark King, LLC. The book will be available for purchase as an e-book from this website and as a hardcover in bookstores everywhere. Look for the book in the fall of 2011. You can have financial privacy and banking secrecy in the U.S.A. and in other parts of the world.

Here are excerpts from Chapter 8: Offshore and Domestic Banking Considerations and Preparation


I grew up reading a number of privacy books whose authors wrote about escaping greedy ex-wives and their money-grubbing attorneys, or other undesirable people or circumstances many of us have to deal with during crisis periods in our lives. These authors touted the virtues of living under the radar on sandy beaches in faraway places, to escape the shafting penalties handed down by courts to “innocent” plaintiffs. And mentioned within these fairy tale paragraphs were stories of how “so and so” had purchased the ultimate remedy to stave off the enemy—a “banking passport” from an offshore “broker” who sold bogus passports issued by defunct countries. Please don’t fall for this out-dated, worn-out scam. Provide true and correct information to financial institutions which meet your business needs and privacy requirements.

Upon reflection, the stories of luring the gullible escapers of reality to their new promised land with unidentifiable money—disguised through a fake passport issued by a country that had its name changed—seem more outrageous today than when I first read of these tales some thirty-odd years ago. I imagine there are far more failures than successes concerning the use of phony passports sold for banking purposes. Don’t participate in these frauds. Such tactics may provide Big Bureaucrat, in any number of jurisdictions, with all the ammunition he needs to seize your assets and throw your ass in jail pronto.

Treat offshore banking as you would any new business venture. Do your research, prepare your application(s), gather your references, make contact with prospective institutions, and be honest and truthful about yourself, your business, and your requirements—and you will do fine.


Not much has changed since my writing and speaking campaigns against the use of banking nominees, first exposed in late 2006. That’s when Privacy Crisis, first edition, was published, and I’ve followed up with my comments on the subject during interviews on talk shows since that time. Always, I have advised against the use of having someone else be in control of your assets, the one and only exception being when one is disabled and cannot make his or her own decisions. But to use another to control money for privacy purposes is a bad idea—an idea formed without the full benefits associated with study, time, and experience with experts and the practical application of using bank secrecy in real time while under fire, as I had to do once in my life. And I used the same entities, with the same structures, outlined in this book and Privacy Crisis. Doing so, I managed to escape unscathed and without spending one thin dime on legal costs for a matter that could have resulted in substantial costs, had the structure to prevent the damages not been in place and had I not had the knowledge base of privacy living to make myself “invisible.”

financial privacy guidance article with bank secrecy information

Bank Secrecy and Financial Privacy are the most sought after privacy principles. How does one obtain bulletproof financial privacy and banking privacy or banking secrecy today? You may want to begin your research by reading one of my first essays on the subject that was published during 2010 on a well known website. The Money Privacy Crisis was popular among those interested in financial privacy and inspired me to write my new book, Privacy Crisis Banking that will soon be available.


Why are nominees a bad idea for banking privacy? Regardless of whatever contract may be made, the person opening the account (nominee) will be able to claim the money. We recommend you follow Hall’s recommendations and handle all of your financial privacy affairs yourself.

The Ultimate  Bank Secrecy Account provides financial privacy by eliminating the ability of searchers to find money through asset searches. It is a legal way of regaining personal financial privacy and establishing a bank secrecy program without the need for two traditional resources typically tied to banking privacy; a nominee for banking purposes and an offshore bank account.


  1. It will present problems when attempting to insure vehicles.
  2. U.S. Residents will need U.S. Government I.D. when opening U.S. bank or stock brokerage accounts.

While there is nothing wrong with a foreign license as a legitimate document, it is not practical while doing business in the U.S.A.

What about offshore Banking? Is offshore banking necessary to accomplish banking privacy?

OFFSHORE BANKING  may be a mistake when banking secrecy is needed

Exceptions may be when individuals or business managers spend a significant amount of time out of the country.

Offshore investing may be a good reason to bank and/or invest offshore, but routine commercial banking services are usually best obtained in one’s own country.

Here’s the interview:

Grant Hall Interview:

Sue: What motivated you to write your new book, Privacy Crisis Banking?

Grant: Over a four year period, we gathered research from website visitors who had a desire to enhance their privacy. The number one category of interest was bank secrecy and financial privacy. Stalking prevention was number two, Identity theft concerns placed third, and general privacy concerns was fourth. Clearly, individuals and businesses want security for their money and property above all other privacy matters.

Sue: I’ve read that traditional banking secrecy havens have rolled over and sold out their high net worth depositors and investors and others as a result of U.S. government pressures and other governments’ interference, too. Are you saying that banking privacy is possible even today in the face of the biggest financial privacy invasion in the history of the world?

Grant: Yes. I banked in traditional banking secrecy jurisdictions during the 1980’s while doing business in Europe. I am well aware of what type of bank secrecy was offered in Switzerland and other countries because I have had first hand experience as a customer. I’d say banking offshore is a mistake today for many.

Sue: How can one bank secretly in the U.S.A.?

Grant: Several options are available for banking in secrecy. Investors and business managers as well as individuals can select from a variety of bank secrecy principles as outlined in the book. For instance, a privately registered Nevada Limited Partnership may serve investors well. Others may want to open a totally secret account I coined, the Ultimate Bank Secrecy Account.
