The government of the USA in 2013 made a new law that used its agencies to discourage the banks from engaging in business with the “high risk businesses” that were believed to be exploiting the consumers. The aim of this program was to make the businesses that were listed as the ones in the high risk of exploiting the consumer run out of business. There are so many businesses that were choked and among them were the guns businesses that are actually legal.
Not only did the law affect the businesses alone, it also had some financial organizations like the Andrew Philips Cardflex cornered due to some allegations that they had done business with a listed company. The law is there to make everyone equal and so when it is exploiting one at the expense of another like the people in the listed business, Andrew Phillips Cardflex becomes an unfair law. This unfair law had to be put to a stop by people who had the power to do that and take care of the targeted businesses until it happen.
When this law was instigated, the banks were forced to block the listed businesses from their services and that led them to sending notices to these businesses telling them that they will not be able to work with them. This was because the banks among many other businesses were forced to terminate long term relationships with these listed companies that they had no problem with. Some, like the Andrew Phillips Cardflex were sued for allegedly helping a listed company to steal from the consumers accounts. These unfairly targeted businesses that were supposed to be choked out of business had to look for other financial options and we all know that is not easy. So this shows that both the listed and the organizations that are doing business with them are a target. The damage that this kind had or will have on the business at large is only imaginable.
This kind of law affect where people get their income and some having to face legal procedure. The courts are accompanied by lots of fines, bails and even a lot of money that is used to hire lawyers. The program was ended last year but the businesses are yet to heal if not stop being targeted. Such law that exploit others at the expense of others is against the core purpose of the government. Consider the affected people. These kind of regulations should be eliminated because they go against the very core function of laws.
