Citigroup doesn't approve of guns

Post by D5CAV » Fri Mar 23, 2018 12:12 am

Citigroup puts restrictions on its customers that sell guns retail: https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2018-03- ... -customers

You should all be using local banks anyway, but here are some helpful hints:
Travelers insurance is part of Citigroup - get another insurance company
Credit cards that are actually Citigroup credit cards: Home Depot, Costco, Staples, Conoco, Shell, Exxon/Mobil. Start using cash.

These are the same F#####S who lost a bunch of money numerous times on stupid bets, going back to the Mexico peso crisis, up through 2008 credit default swap meltdown. They got bailed out with your tax dollars every time, while paying their execs $billions in bonuses.

So what's to stop you from taking a cash advance and then use that cash to purchase a gun? Preferably an Evil Black Rifle with a Bump Stock, bayonet and thing that goes up. From a private seller in the parking lot of an ELGS?

Virtue signalling twits.

Don't have one of their cards, and the cards I do have are used because I don't like carrying large amounts of cash around and are paid off in full every month. Last time I used a CC was to buy Darlin' daughters CCW piece, at Cabela's using one of their cards and using up a bunch of points that had accumulated over the years to save more on the sale price. Money was in the bank, but cash would have actually cost me more in this case.

yeah yeah, tracking purchases etc. Don't care. If/when I do it's cash, but I have so many weapons registered in my name (thanks to the Socialist Democratic People's Republic of Hawaii), it's not like I'm not already on the radar if it comes down to it.
...even before I read MHI, my response to seeing a poster for the stars of the latest Twilight movies was "I see 2 targets and a collaborator".

Didn't try this shit a couple of years ago, and the backlash made the do an about face almost immediately?

I had a corporate Citi bank credit card years ago. Their customer service sucks, enough reason to not use them right there.

I'm not sure banks can avoid being evil. Something in their genes.
Note to self: start reading sig lines. They're actually quite amusing. :D

The government travel card program is run through Citibank. I can't wait to be rid of that POS card, and the requirement to use it.

Thought that was through Bank of UnAmerica. Or is that only for the military?

IIRC it used to be Bank of America. Citi got the contract a couple /ten years ago and we all got new travel cards. BofA may have used to be the provider for GSA cards too, but Citi got that contract (along with U.S. Bank) last year. A plague on ALL their houses.
