WOW DAN! You're a real hustler!
BTW, does the letter stop you form doing it, or it's just to scare?

IME in the beginning they find it amusing, as time went on not so much... it depends how many people would come to that branch. I started to go to a different branch every time.

Eventually I had accounts with 9 banks and burned my bridges with most of the branches in the area...wasn't too disappointed to get the letter and take it easy.

According to a customer representative,they cancelled the program for cc and debit cards as of today.From now on only via check/wire transfer. He said the cc companies pushed them to shut it down,because of the "airline mile thing" . Can you purchase a money order with a cc ? ;)

Ha, you wish. If you could, everyone here would have millions upon million of miles. Dan would probably have billions. There was a point in time travelers checks worked- but those are long gone.

So it wasnt even the government that wanted to shut it down.  They were just giving in to the credit card companies.  Thats hilarious since the gov't was losing tons of money too and getting nothing out of it as it was never really put into circulation.

If all this is true then the government is going to have an even harder time circulating these.

Also, why would the CC companies care? I assume they are charging the government for the CC processing, no?

The upside is that while the dollars they print keep losing value, the metal in these coins (and any other commodities) they are hoarding are going up in value every day.
