Opinion: Email to my bank about NYC law enforcement debit card scam. March 8, 2022.


Greetings Bank,

People I know pay NYC law enforcement to harass me every day. I just had a hearing set up by the NYC Comptroller’s Office to sue the NYPD so we’ll see how that goes. The hearing and upcoming lawsuit hasn’t stopped NYC law enforcement from harassing me every day. 

Before I get into it, I just wanted to say I’m a very happy customer and I always treat all your staff with the utmost respect at all times in person and on the phone. ‘

I don’t care if one of your staff poured a can of paint over my head I would just walk out and go take a shower. I wouldn’t argue with them. 

I don’t have a criminal record. I don’t do anything illegal. 

NYC law enforcement is trying to get me kicked out of every place I go. 

NYC law enforcement was just running a scam on me that I wanted to ask you about. If you don’t know the answer I understand, it’s no big deal. 

I was just trying to pay a company on their website. NYC law enforcement is desperately trying to get me banned from entering this particular business. The company’s website kept rejecting my debit card when I tried to pay them. 

NYC law enforcement set it up so that my card was blocked by this company because NYC law enforcement wanted me to call the company. 

How did NYC law enforcement block my debit card from working on the company’s website when the website was functional for anyone else trying to use it? How did NYC law enforcement block only my debit card? 

For example, lets say I go to a supermarket. I swipe my debit card. The supermarkets credit card system blocks my card from paying. It works for everyone else. How can that be done? The supermarket scenario is just a hypothetical situation. I just wanted to be clear about what I’m asking. The other scenario happened today.

I started sending you a message about NYC law enforcement blocking my card from paying this one company. My debit card was working perfectly everywhere else besides this one company.

While I was sending a message to you through the bank’s website, I also called the company. 

NYC law enforcement had a nice scam waiting for me when I called. Long story short I had to call back a second time and the company was able to charge my card. 

The reason NYC law enforcement wanted my debit card blocked from paying that company is that NYC law enforcement wanted me to call the company. 

NYC law enforcement has thousands of hours of audio of me complaining about NYC law enforcement on various government phone numbers. NYC law enforcement edits the audio of me complaining about NYC law enforcement and reporting NYC law enforcement and says the words were directed towards people at private companies, the people at the college I attend, things like that. 

My question is this, how does NYC law enforcement block a charge coming from my debit card at one company when my debit card is working everywhere else? Meaning if I go to use a website, and my debit card is rejected, how is NYC law enforcement doing that? 

I understand if you don’t want to tell me because your bank might be tight with NYC law enforcement and wants to stay on good terms with NYC law enforcement. I highly suspect, if you or anyone helps me at all NYC law enforcement will not be happy. 

Please provide any information you can. If you don’t want to get involved, I understand. I love your bank and I am as happy as can be with the service and value. 

Thank you and have a great day.
