I heard about this on a talk show and I wonder what is going on!!!! This one couple purchased airline tickets for a trip to Africa and used a debit card. The next day, they went to dinner and the card was declined. They learned that the airline had frozen the account!!! Now, is this some new law that allows a private business to freeze a bank account without any notification of the account holder???? After an hour, it seems that this is a more common thing. One guy bought a used car from a delaership, used a cashier's check and then, teh dealership froze the account!! Someone was using a debit card at a gas station and was told that if they purchased more than 60 dollars worth that their account could be frozen for a week. There were many more stories of how PRIVATE parties are being allowed to freeze accounts of citizens. I can see some logic to HOLDING an amount to be sure a check clears, but freezing an account???? Seems like some bank laws have gotten through that are messing with citizens in a bad way...Heard of this????
