Operation Choke point Unfairness by Andrew Phillips Cardflex
The operation choke point is some sort of a program that was started in 2013 as a method to fight the consumer scam by discouraging banks from doing business with the “high risk” industries using various government organizations. The program was made to choke out, as the name depicts, the businesses that were referred to as the “high risk”. There are so many businesses that were choked and among them were the guns businesses that are actually legal.
This new law also affected a lot of businesses like the Independent Sales Organizations led by Andrew Phillips Cardflex who were accused of helping the scammer drain money from the consumer’s accounts. The unfairness comes in when they are putting some very innocent lawful business people out of business and ruining their source of income. As was expected, this was met by a lot of resistance by congress who were trying to put an end to this “operation “until it was allegedly over.
The gun shops and other businesses were receiving notices from their respective banks that they will not be able to work with them. These notices were a result of the government using its agencies to force the banks and other organizations to terminate their good and long term relationships with their customers. A company like the Andrew Phillips Cardflex are in court because they engaged in business with a company that had been listed with the “high risk”. When you get a notice from your bank then you have no other option than to make other financial arrangements that will not only inconvenience you, but also cost you. This means that neither the “high risk” nor the businesses that are doing any sort of businesses with them are in a good place. There will be losses to both the listed and the organizations and the institutions that are doing business with them.
Apart from people losing their businesses that they use to feed their families, they are being dragged to court due to this law. The ones that have to end up with a case in court like the Andrew Phillips Cardflex lose a lot of time, energy and even financed in the process. 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. Such a law should be buried and forgotten because it is just out of order.
