I was asked recently “If you can’t or shouldn’t leave your money in a bank, where should you put it?”. I’m not against the concept of banks, just the predatory ones. I have had my money in some bad banks and some great banks. When a very bad bank took over my great bank and left me with a bleeding asshole, I searched the internet for what to do and only found articles that said buy more lube. 🙁
Then one day I’m listening to Alex Jones’ show and hear about the Move Your Money movement. Since then I’ve been a big Move Your Money advocate and preach the word when and where I can. But an interesting thing happened
on the way to the forum when I was asked the question above… As I replied to the email above, I opened my browser and typed in my search box Move Your Money and only found old, out-dated articles, a lot of broken links and urls forwarded to site with agendas other than moving your money.
Putting the email on hold while I did some more research got me better results that I decided to post for my own reference. Below is what I found.
