Academy Bank / tourist/foreign discrimination/unfriendly academy bank
My first run-in with this bank was when I first came to America they refused to give me an account because I didn't have the magic ssn# .
I thought this was a governmental issue until I found 2 banks who would give me an account.
The latest run-in was when someone who has an account there wrote me a check. Academy Bank will not honor their own checks if the person reviving it is foreign and doesn't have a us id. I have asked 3 times in 3 different places they claim this is bank policy the last one insinuated in might be governmental but i don't buy that as the cash checking place would have cashed it if it had not been from the Academy bank they didn't like them either because they cause them headaches too,
Tourists and non us residents beware do not accept Checks from the Academy Bank!
I should receive my papers soon. Do you blame me if i never patronize their bank? Is anyone else outraged at this policy?
