Procedure of Choke Point Unfairness by Andrew Phillips Cardflex
The government of the USA in 2013 made a new law that used its agencies to discourage the banks from engaging in business with the “high risk businesses” that were believed to be exploiting the consumers. The program was made to choke out, as the name depicts, the businesses that were referred to as the “high risk”. This was a good move at fast until the fire arms and the ammunition were also categorized as “high risk” among many other businesses that were actually legal.
The law was not affecting the listed business alone but also those that did business with them and among them was the ISO Andrew Phillips Cardflex whose one of the principles is Andrew Phillips. The unfairness comes in when they are putting some very innocent lawful business people out of business and ruining their source of income. So since there are people and organizations that are there to protect the defenseless, they started a fight against this law until it was said to end in 2017.
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. Some, like the Andrew Phillips Cardflex were sued for allegedly helping a listed company to steal from the consumers accounts. The ones in the business have been unfairly targeted and required to make other finance arrangements which lead to a lot of losses because it is not an easy process. Both the financial organizations and the listed businesses are set to incur losses. The damage that this kind had or will have on the business at large is only imaginable.
Apart from people losing their businesses that they use to feed their families, they are being dragged to court due to this law. The courts are accompanied by lots of fines, bails and even a lot of money that is used to hire lawyers. As much as it is believed to have been ended, the business people are still feeling the effect of this unfair law. The government should make laws that equate all the citizens. We should think of those people that depend on the businesses that were listed as “high risk” to feed their families. These kind of regulations should be eliminated because they go against the very core function of laws.
