From friend David M., word from a European contact of his, on 6/16:
I have friends everywhere between London and Paris, and they are panicking, savings accounts have been getting emptied at a dramatic rate, we should see panic next week because they are being told what they can have and what they can;t have,
Its not that long ago that they changed the ATM machines, so instead of having a choice of withdrawal from 20-500 on the screen, you can now on [sic] have from 10-50.
Further, this was just posted on Max Keiser, from one of his sources, "Mr. X":
Banque Postal is in in very bad position (Dexia accounts)
i received this and this friday and saturday
The mail says that my reader went to the bank in the morning and asked 250 euros
the lady answered "i am sorry, i just have 180 euros"...
The guy understood that his account had only 180 euros so he asked again : -- )
she explained that she only had 500 euros to open her desk and 180 left !!!
The reader made 3 Banks Postale before getting his money.
The picture below (taken by an another reader on friday in Maison-Alfort, parisian suburb)
shows another Banque Postale saying that there will be no cash transaction on friday
from 8h to 14h30 !
Other friends are reporting to me that (whatever bank) they are not able to do wires
due to "computer technical problems blabla") !
something big and dangerous is going on here in France with Bank Postale one
of the most important banks of the country
