Bank Of America Stops Handling WikiLeaks Payments…


and this would be of no surprise to anyone on the planet since it appears that the next target of WikiLeaks is assumed to be one of the major banks in the United States, Bank of America.

    Bank of America, following in the steps of MasterCard and PayPal, offered basically the same response for the processing shut down as the other company’s have.

“Bank of America joins in the actions previously announced by MasterCard, PayPal, Visa Europe and others and will not process transactions of any type that we have reason to believe are intended for WikiLeaks,” the bank said in a statement Friday.

“This decision is based upon our reasonable belief that WikiLeaks may be engaged in activities that are, among other things, inconsistent with our internal policies for processing payments.”

     Next question is,will this piece of crap bank be the target of of hackers,as was the case with MasterCard and Visa? Security experts think that the bank would be hard to knock off-line,as they are supposed to have very tight security.
