Last month, ‘Public Intelligence‘ released a Financial Crimes Enforcement Network document revealing how banks are spying on our everyday transactions for DHS.

Your bank transactions are being reported to DHS

The Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (FinCEN) is issuing this advisory to provide financial institutions with information on identifying and reporting transactions possibly associated with Foreign Terrorist Fighters (FTFs) who support the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL), al-Qa’ida, and their affiliates in Iraq and the Lev ant region. Financial institutions may use this information to enhance their Anti-Money Laundering (AML) risk-based strategies and monitoring systems.

Don’t forget that DHS’s Institute of Terrorism Research and Response works with banks to spy on  law-abiding activist groups like the Tea Party protestors, pro-life activists and anti-fracking environmental organizations. Banks have a sordid history of spying on Americans. Back in 2011, Wall St., and the NYPD were caught spying on protestors.and during the same year, Spiegel revealed how the NSA uses Tracfin to spy on everyone’s bank records.
