Looks like the Swiss are selling all their US dollar holdings.

Looks out below!

if America declared war on Switzerland with this UBS ruling,Credit suisse has now ordered all US clietns out. if you find yourself in this boat remember this

these banks will take in Americans

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
g. Barclays bank in Ghana
g. Martin Maurel Sella bank in Monaco

also if you send money from Switzerland ,then not all banks will take Swiss francs(CHF) for deposits. if you send it as US dollars(USD),then it has to go through a US bank first no matter where the final destiantion is . that leave a paper trail and it could get confiscated. so I say send it as Euros(EUR) or as British pounds(GBP)

some of the departure/ordered to terminate business notices were never delivered in the US.so think that US postal inspector or the IRS did a mail intercept. why?, to provoke or trap some unsuspecting American into sending money back to US and get it confiscated. it is a squeeze play. either the Swiss are retaliating or the US treasury is setting up a squeeze on US clients of Swiss banks (e.g. the big three banks UBS,SBC or Credit Suisse). it is the honest clients of the Swiss banks that get hurt. use the banks listed above, but don't send the money as US dollars(USD). the banks above will accept EUR or GBP.if you think this is paranoid,just you wait and see if some unsuspecting American gets clipped on this in the following weeks to come. it shall make the papers I am certain of that. sending it in USD will leave a trail that is too easily traced. it is a squeeze play . let the lawyers and legal counsels be prepared for this. it is a trap. send the money as EUR or GBP. let your clients know this if there are any lawyers out there with offshore clients who are listening.good luck

Since the Swiss GNP isn't as much as some COUNTIES in the United States, don't hold your breath.

Whatever these asinine comments, the truth is that Switzerland is no longer an "offshore" jurisdiction, at least as far as the U.S. and an increasing number of other countries go. So, go champion Switzerland elsewhere, but it is simply no longer relevant to these boards.

Goodbye, Switzerland, and thanks for all the fish.

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.
