TYRANNY: Bank of America Terminates Account of Conservative Independent Journalist Without...

•, By Jim Hoft

Independent journalist Christina Urso, known professionally as Radix Verum, has reported that Bank of America abruptly terminated her bank account. Urso, who has been critical in her reporting on various issues including the FBI's involvement in the Governor Whitmer kidnapping case, took to social media platform X to voice her concerns and frustrations.

According to Urso's posts on X, the termination came without warning or clear explanation from the bank's risk department. She claims that despite her long-standing relationship with Bank of America, access to her funds was denied and she was informed that a check for the account balance would be mailed to her without specifying when.

"So Bank of America has decided to 'terminate' their business relationship with me. Their 'risk department' made this determination for literally no reason. I have been with them for years. This is clearly because of my documentary and my critical reporting.

"They won't tell me why. They won't allow me access to my bank account or to the funds. They are telling me I will get a 'check in the mail' but they won't say when I can expect it. I am traveling at the end of this month for my documentary. Now I have no funds.

"They wouldn't say when the check will come. I have a documentary film shoot in less than two weeks and I have crew members I need to pay, etc."

Urso recounted a recent interaction at a local branch where she attempted to resolve this issue. During this visit, she engaged in what seemed to be routine conversation with a bank employee about her profession, which she now suspects may have led to the risk department's decision to close her account.
