    Have you heard lately that bank accounts of porn stars are being shut down? Well banks are now closing bank accounts of high risk merchants, in an operation called Operation Choke Point. Targetted merchant categories include high risk merchants.

    Some, but not all include:


    • Get Rich Products
    • Government Grants
    • Home-Based Charities
    • Life-Time Guarantees
    • Life-Time Memberships

    Full list here:
