I understand if the FTC has some beef with you and it's serious (think Frank Kern back in the early 2000s) they can freeze or at worst, go into your AMERICAN bank accounts. My question is to they have this power with bank accounts in foreign countries? Unlikely I know, but I'm trying to cover all my bases at the moment... Obviously, it would be difficult to impossible to have any effect on lets say a Latvian bank... But what about accounts in countries which the USA has close ties with? I'm thinking: Japan (most importantly for me as I live there...) UK Canada Australia Is there an special relationship between the FTC / American Gov and these countries or are we free of their clutches?
