Bank Closes Woman's Account Because She's From Cuba

We could be wrong, but this sounds all sorts of illegal. Carmen Bermudez -- an American citizen of Cuban origin -- says the MetroBank in Kennesaw, Georgia abruptly closed her business account last month. She tells the local ABC affiliate a bank official called her into his office, handed her a check and told her: "We do not do business with Cubans here." Oh, hell no! When asked about their discriminatory practices, a bank official told WSB: "We are aware of some concerns recently raised. The same laws and various other regulations previously cited, preclude any discussion of a customer matter except with the customer themselves."
