CAIR MUSLIM COMMUNITY ALERT: U.S. Banks targeting Muslim-Americans; Threaten account holders for noncompliance

sampaa15169acd7c3384In the recent weeks, the Council on American-Islamic Relations of the Greater Los Angeles office (CAIR-LA) has been receiving complaints from customers of Bank of America who have been receiving a letter package requesting customers to provide proof of current residence or information about the source of their assets.  These letters have targeted Muslims and individuals from U.S sanctioned countries, such as, Syria and Iran.

CAIR  Bank of America claims it is implementing a program designed comply with United States Department of the Treasury’s Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) sanctions. In doing so, customers are threatened with the inability to use debit cards to make purchases and restrictions on all accounts for noncompliance.
