I first wrote an article on Dodd-Frank last year. It was a cursory piece to let people know that when they deposit their cash in a bank, they give up that possession.
Depositors become ‘unsecured creditors’ and banks become the owners of your cash.
Reproduction of that short piece is below. Why revisit this now? I’ve been warning friends and family a bail-in will be triggered sooner or later. A video has emerged warning us that a bail-in may be happening soon. Watch it after reading:
How Dodd Frank Was Changed to Steal Your Money
Dodd-Frank was put into force after the 2007/2008 banking crisis. The original intent was to keep banks from becoming too big to fail. [Many of us can see how well that worked—I mean the big part…]
The article below gives you some history, but it doesn’t tell the whole story.
As with many laws, industry pokes and pokes our legislators to tweak laws to benefit them. Government has thrown off the robe of responsibility and thrown us to the wolves once again.
Dodd-Frank has been changed to provide for “Bail-ins” rather than “Bail-outs.” What that means is that when you, the bread-winner, deposit your hard-earned cash or paycheck in a bank, it no longer belongs to you. You become the unsecured creditor and the bank now owns your income.

Confiscating the customer deposits in Cyprus banks, it seems, was not a one-off, desperate idea of a few eurozone troika officials scrambling to salvage their balance sheets. A joint paper by the U.S. Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) and the Bank of England dated December 10, 2012, shows that these plans have been long in the making; that they originated with the G20 Financial Stability Board in Basel, Switzerland (discussed earlier here); and that the result will be to deliver clear title to the banks of depositor funds. New Zealand has a similar directive, discussed earlier here.
Few depositors realize that legally, the bank owns the depositor’s funds as soon as they are put in the bank. Our money becomes the bank’s, and we become unsecured creditors holding IOUs. (See here and here.) But until now, the bank has been obligated to pay the money back as cash on demand. Under the FDIC-BOE plan, our IOUs will be converted into “bank equity.” The bank will get the money and we will get stock in the bank. With any luck we may be able to sell the stock to someone else, but when and at what price? Most people keep a deposit account so they can have ready cash to pay the bills.”
Wages have plummeted in past decades. It’s hard for many to make ends meet. Just imagine going for groceries to feed your kids and having your card declined so a bank you trusted can try to save itself from its bad decisions.

Can too big to fail banks really take your money if things go sour and leave you screwed without access to your cash?
The short answer: without the proper regulation in place (which is currently not in place), is: YES.
A bank rescue scheme that led to one man killing himself after losing over $100,000 is already testament to it. In his suicide note, the man explained that after being a customer of the bank for 50 years, and investing in bank-issued bonds, he was relieved of his investments thanks to a hidden clause that saw him and 130,000 shareholders and bondholders left hung out to dry so the bank could stay afloat.
The bank in question was already in rescue mode, and in order to tap into a specially created rescue fund, it had to meet the requirements of the wealthier banks that would be providing the funds. However, before these funds can be accessed, the bonds are first tapped, at the loss of any said bond or shareholder.
BBC explained this method as a “bail-in.” In plain English, that means that bondholders got screwed because the bank they trusted failed. Newer EU laws basically say that losses must be forced on bondholders and depositors who have more than €100,000 on tap.
In a worst case scenario, banks that fail in the EU, under the proposed laws that take effect this year, mean that over a million savers could be stiffed.
Your Money Becomes The Bank’s
Don’t like banks? The government doesn’t like you. If they catch you with large sums, they can take your savings, too.
Had enough? But wait—there’s more…
Martin Armstrong of Armstrong Economics answers a reader’s questions here:
It appears we will not be able to escape the carnage as the world’s 8,000 elite dictate we can no longer use physical currency. We will be forced to place our funds in the wolves’ den—Banks or worse still—what big tech has in store for us…
But this is not about cash—this is about controlling your cash.
Remember what I said about the virus?
This is not about a virus—it’s about control
Yes everything you’re experiencing now is about controlling your lives, your body, and your income.
