G-Man: My Bank Story
I visited a bank today (Wednesday) . I had an appointment with a Wealth Manager. I just wanted to share the experience!
A brief synopsis... When I first setup the meeting on the phone, I told him that I invested in exotic currencies and I have reasons to believe that they will be paying big dividends soon. He gladly setup the meeting.
Upon my arrival, at the appointment, there were two (not one) wealth managers waiting it the office to greet me. I noticed that one of them (the owner of the office), had "Top Wealth Manager" awards 4 years in a row.
I preceded to tell them about the specifics of my investment (dinars, dongs, etc). It was noteworthy also, that they didn't flinch in the least during my dissertation; they didn't spew any negativity, they didn't say it was a scam, nothing like that.
Rather, they both sat there intently listening to my presentation. At this point I felt like I was teaching a class, and they were eager students wanting to learn.
They proceeded to ask very specific questions about the currencies. I remember thinking, "This is strange, why are these guys so interested in what I had to say?" It was as though, they wanted to learn everything they could about the currencies.
At this point they rolled out the red carpet, they proceeded to gave me a presentation on their programs, perks and why I should bank privately with them.
They took my information and told me, they will be in touch with me shortly and that they are looking forward to serving my banking needs.
Here is the kicker, on my way out of the bank one of them followed me to the exit and almost covertly pointed in the direction of the safety deposit boxes and whispered, "I own a few Dinars myself, see you soon."
