    I helped a guy not too long ago who was in the UK get a US bank account. I charged him 700. 300 of it was refundable once he got his account card in the mail.

    80.00 for insurance and 2 day mail.

    He was a success.

    The next guy I am helping is causing me a headache. So I am coming to my community and asking am I being unreasonable?

    Without giving us a hint under which way you are opening the account... C-Corp, LLC, Partnership or Personal, don't know if the $700 is worth the trouble.

    How are you able to avoid the risk of working with someone you don't know?

    I'm not sure about US. In UK (if you're an EU resident) such a service would cost between 100 GBP to 700 GBP - depending on the agent.

    Did you check your competitors' prices?

    I was just opening a basic checking account with a savings account. I was charging 700 USD which is nothing if we are looking in the sense of GPB.

    Easy, and yes that is usually the purpose why the accounts are opened. I have a connection that enables me to be able to open multiple accounts.

    My personal thing is that I set the accounts up, then I make the PayPal account for them, call PayPal let them know this is a traveling account. I set up the numbers, etc.

    It's rather simple and pretty common for non US citizens to do what has is being talked about. If the people have a business already, they just expand their business to the US soil.

    There will be no shit list and yes you do have to be careful but isn't that life.

    Hi there, I don't own that site nor have any claim to it.

    You can get this information anywhere you go and don't need to buy it. I will even say that. The reason people would buy it is because they were too lazy to do their due diligence.

    no, your information is misconstrued. There are several places that offer services as a registered agent where you are the advocate for the business in need.

    It is my opinion and only my opinion the the Op is a fraudster.
    I have received PM's regarding this thread.
    However I am not a mod and only have limited capacity.
    If you couldn't see this was a disguised sales thread from the beginning
    then you shouldn't be in IM.
    Yeh! Alright mate. Do you think I'm some sort of fucking prick?
    Take your fucking small scammer self and fuck off out of this forum.

    This thread is six days old.
    I wonder how many fools he's taken already.
