Big institutions bouncing your money around the world like a pinball to multiple fee-charging banks using a complex and expensive relationship network – a desperate stand-in for an efficient transfer solution – all operating at your expense and hidden from your scrutiny by a global agreement to keep the system totally opaque so they can keep skimming money off the top without accountability. And usually, at least six banks are in on this scheme.
