By: US dollar is going down

Good point nightmare.

In any case there is no more point of holding US dollars anymore, since this currency keeps on going down:

"FOREX-U.S. dollar tumbles to near one-year lows"

You should be selling all your US dollar holdings and buying gold, Swiss Francs, Euros and Canadian dollars.

Good luck to all!

I can tell you this: Credit Suisse just ordered its US clients out immediately. so it seems that either the US treasury is on a witch hunt of the big three banks ( UBS, SBC,and Credit Suisse). or it seems that the Gnomes of Switerland want to make trouble for US clients because of the heat from the UBS debacle. either way it is an unpleasant time for US banking clients in Switzerland.also I think that either the IRS has staged a mail intercept of mail from certain large banks in Zurich or the US POSTAL INSPECTOR has been confiscating some mail. why, do I say this? because certain notices about this ordered departure from Credit Suisse were not delivered. it seems that someone is playing or attempting to provoke the US clients into sending money back to the US--perhaps to be confiscated or to invite IRS scrutiny.. unfortunately the honest US clients are caught in a squeeze play.

if anyone reaidng this is likewise in this category

remember the following will take in US clients

a. FIBC bank in Caymans
b. Ansbacker bank in Bahamas
c. Jyske bank in Denmark
d. HSBC bank in Hong Kong
e. Standard Chartered bank in Singapore
f. Martin Maurel Sella bank in Monaco
g. Barclays bank in Ghana

also remember that when you send the money from Switzerland to somewhere else:
a. not all banks take Swiss francs(CHF) for deposits.
b. if you send it as US dollars(USD) ,it goes through a US bank no matter where the final destination is . that leaves a paper trail from Switzerland to US.if you are American it is too easy to trace this and it might get the money confiscated. it might be a trap that someone has set for the US clients

so if you don't want a paper trail or to get trapped, it might be better to send the money as Euros(EUR) or as British pounds(GBP)

of the banks listed above ,all will accept Euros(EUR) or British pounds(GBP). let a word to the wise be sufficient

if you feel I am being paranoid, look at the newspapers in the coming months ahead. see if anyone who was forced to leave a Swiss bank and sent it back to the US or sent it as US dollars(USD) got clipped/pinched or got the money confiscated. if I am right ,then you will see this happen to some unsuspecting well to do person who naively sent the money as US dollars(USD).let their lawyers or legal counsels be aware of this now.

good luck and best wishes.

Hey basher, look up the word "coercion" in the dictionary, you might learn something for once.

"Swiss banking giant UBS AG agreed"

"Swiss Justice Minister Eveline Widmer-Schlumpf told a news conference in the capital of Bern that the deal"

Agreed? Deal? Doesn't sound like much of an "attack". Sounds a lot more like the truth, which is that when things got dicey, the Swiss rolled and sold out their clients.

Cayman Court Secrecy: A Huge Red Flag for Foreign Investors & Clients
David Marchant
As any fule kno, the biggest enemy of fraud, corruption, money laundering, and other forms of financial crime is transparency, while their best friend is secrecy. That's why the unprecedented mass sealing of cases that's taking place at the Financial Services Division of the Grand Court of the Cayman Islands is repugnant to anyone with a genuine concern for financial crime.
