    So, I have US bank accounts at some of the major banks, but I am overseas and working with some guys and there's a local contact here opening Wells Fargo bank accounts for ACH withdrawal...

    But the odd thing is they're capable of opening 100s of them a week. 1000s even. And its almost instant (you Skype him, minutes later you have the account info.)

    The connections I have at banks (not Wells Fargo) could never open 100s and 100s of accounts a week, it would likely flag some sort of system...additionally, its not as easy as simply clicking a button online...I would need to contact the banks, have them set the accounts up, etc etc. So I am wondering if anyone has any input on how this is being done?

    For some of the older guys, his ability to do this REALLY quickly, and to generate TONS of accounts almost seems like what we were able to do on ING DIRECT several years ago...(which obviously doesn't work anymore.)

    Obviously my first assumption was Payoneer, but its not the solution they're using. This guy is able to open 100s really quickly...and obviously setting up 100s of Payoneer accounts would take WEEKS to receive the debit cards, US payment activation, etc. etc.

    Is there something I am missing here?

    My two thoughts:

    1.) Does anyone have an existing Wells Fargo account? Can you open an online checking account REALLY easily online with a click of a button? Like what you were able to do with ING DIRECT years back?
    2.) Is there some sort of Payoneer-type service I don't know about using Wells Fargo and greatly reducing the start-up/verification process?

    I have multiple accounts with Wells, but every time I've started new accounts there I've actually gone into my local branch to do so, and it takes about 15-20 mins per account to setup with the business banker. Actually seems like a pain the ass to be honest lol. I have never looked into opening them online, so I can't answer your questions, but I figured I would share the fact that it takes my banker (who does this all day long) that long on average for a new account setup.

    I see that many websites are selling usa bank accounts like banks in wellsfargo bank, meta bank, did you tried to search for them? I do personally have one guy offering usa bank accounts for some price with debit card and all the stuff. So i think there must be a way you can buy easily.

    Be careful of scams...It is not so easy to open a USA bank account nowadays.

    sounds a bit fishy, you sure it's not some kind of additional account? some of the US banks allow you to create "virtual accounts" pretty easily to hide real bank accounts just like vcc's
