Based out of London, with a few locations in Southern California as well, NatWest allegedly told its customers via signage that in order to keep them "safe and secure," customers will now be asked questions about the purpose of their cash withdrawals.
"We may also ask for supporting documentation such as an invoice," the sign further reads. "This helps us validate the withdrawal as genuine and protect you against fraud and scams."
The biggest fraud and scam of all is private central banking, of course, which has a stranglehold on the United Kingdom just as it does the United States. Nevertheless, this is the official story from NatWest as to why it has decided to start probing its customers' intentions before allowing them to access their own cash.
