      If you are NOT a U.S. citizen, it is illegal under Title 18 USC � 911 to identify yourself in this way. That section reads:

      "Whoever falsely and willfully represents himself to be a citizen of the United States shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than three years, or both."

      Notes for that section read:


      (June 25, 1948, ch. 645, 62 Stat. 742; Pub. L. 103�322, title XXXIII, � 330016(1)(H),Sept. 13, 1994, 108 Stat. 2147.)
      Historical and Revision Notes

      Based on subsection (a), paragraph (18) and subsection (d), of section 746, title 8, U.S.C., 1940 ed., Aliens and Nationality (Oct. 14, 1940, ch. 876, � 346(a), par. (18), and (d), 54 Stat. 1165, 1167).
      Section consolidates said provisions of section 746, title 8, U.S.C., 1940 ed., Aliens and Nationality. The word �willfully� was substituted for �knowingly�, �$1,000� for �$5,000�, and �three years� for �five years�, to harmonize with congressional intent evidenced by the other sections of this chapter.
      Minor changes were made in phraseology and unnecessary words were omitted."

      "The limits of tyrants is prescribed by the endurance of those whom they oppress." Frederic Douglas, 1857

      The ideal tyranny is that which is ignorantly self-administered by its victims. The most perfect slaves are, therefore, those which blissfully and unawaredly enslave themselves.

      ~ Charles de Montesquieu

      Anyone with success lately or suggestion on how to tackle opening a business checking account without any government issued personal ID?
      I have read the regulations the banks are obligated to follow for the federal government and Federal Reserve, and there is nothing there that obligates a bank to demand government issued ID from those who were never issued any; If I am missing anything then let me know
