The following email was sent to me today from a friend in Upper Michigan. The email message is unedited, except for the swearing. Take note of the currency control. You might check with your own financial institution in the year ahead to understand any transfer-out or withdrawal limits. I expect we'll see more of this as financial institutions implement controls to keep themselves solvent... Peter Pete, we are leaving for a new start to our life to Belize in 6 days, \ so,I went to the credit union, 2 credit unions where I have plenty of cash to get my cash. They won't give it to me. They gave me 1000 for spending money, but I was trying to get out 10K for investment, and they (shut me down), 30 day wait period. IT IS MY *bubblegum* MONEY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! What the *bubblegum*?
