As many of you have experienced with not just our site, but with many others in our industry, the ability to use a credit card can be difficult to come by. This is unfortunately due to circumstances beyond our control, and we are terribly sorry for the inconvenience this may cause you during your search for a better quality of life using CBD rich hemp oil products. We feel awful for what the banks are putting all of us through.
Why No Credit Cards?
A great question, and one we are not 100% sure of. With today’s ever increasing dependence on plastic and digits, it is a blessing and a curse with which the speed of business has accelerated. On the one hand, we are able to find a product we would like to order, and with the press of a few mouse clicks and keystrokes we can get that product to our doorstep in times that our predecessors could only dream about.
On the other hand, if anything were to go awry, that process that we have become so accustomed to becomes a virtually insurmountable barrier to the product we wish to send to you. And unfortunately we are experiencing yet another one of those barriers currently. For those who remember, we have been through at least 6 processors who have backtracked on our industry, and over the last 7 months, we have had processing for one of those. This makes it extremely difficult to get CBD to those who need it: folks like yourself.
On June 30, 2017 at 3pm PST, we had yet another merchant services provider shut down our account. This is not due to anything related to business, nor complaints, nor any other tangible reason related to our business. Our ability to take debit and credit cards was taken away out of fear by the banks; a fear of regulations set forth by unelected officials under the guise of protection, but are designed to indiscriminately shutter businesses.
Operation Choke Point
The history of choke points has a militaristic background, and is referred to by many great and devious warmongers throughout time. Militarily speaking, a choke point is a narrow geographical feature, such as a valley or bridge, at which point a group is forced to pass through, greatly reducing their combat power. By forcing a large group into a narrow spot, a smaller group is able to take an advantage. If you have seen the movie 300, you will have the example of King Leonidas’ epic defense against the thousands Persian invaders with only 300 men in the Pass of Thermopylae, and whose experience now lives on in infamy.
In modern times, this tactic has been applied to financial institutions to extrajudicially perpetuate a war against companies and industries that are only believed to be at a higher risk for fraud and money laundering. While last year the FDIC had issued a letter “encouraging supervised institutions to take a risk-based approach in assessing individual customer relationships, rather than declining to provide banking services to entire categories of customers without regard to the risks presented by an individual customer or the financial institution’s ability to manage the risk,” this practice appears to in continuance in relation to the legal hemp products market.
