Gestapo Banks.

This morning as I stood in line at my bank, I watched this guy go through the Spanish Inquisition just to cash a check. He had three checks, two for approx. $800, and one for $600. He deposited the two larger checks into his account and wanted cash for the third. Well, they requested all this information for their cash-tracking system, which he was politely refusing. All of a sudden, this guy comes out and asks him to go back into his office telling him he had to do so in order to get his cash. I waited around so I could ask him what happened. He was furious. He said he was surprised he wasn't strip searched.. They put his drivers licence through a scanner, asked him why he needed cash, asked him about his cash-spending habits, and ran some kind of background check...then, he got his cash. He said he asked why he needed to go through this process and they told him: federal compliance. He told them he was going to transfer his money out of that bank and they told him it's not going to make any difference. All the banks must comply with this cash-tracking system. WTF? I almost never use cash so I had no idea. Does anyone know anything about this??
