I was raised by my old hippie Uncle Don, who did not trust the establishment.
He didn’t trust the city council, or cops, or lawyers, or nurses either! He was convinced all the people was out to get him, however thankfully not to a degree of actually being insane! Did he trust banks? Absolutely no way.
If he had money, or wanted to save money, he did it the seasoned fashioned way — with a gigantic old wrought iron safe in his basement. The safe was too heavy to move, too thick to open, so he felt his money was safe. Maybe Don was right, because a cybersecurity breach at my bank just stole all of my funds. I understand that this is only temporary plus my money is guaranteed, due to the network security agreement my bank provided to us. To deliver their bankers peace of mind they provided us all written notification of the cybersecurity measures that are being out into place, so both of us would assume they were entirely working around the clock to protect what we deposit with them. In the event there is a data security breach plus data or money is stolen, the bank will refund it. I’m no expert in server security, however that is not necessary because I can be sure they will honor their promise to protect my assets. Uncle Don would call myself and others crazy for trusting a bank in the first locale, plus I assume he wouldn’t trust cybersecurity from even a famous security agency, however then again he was a little off kilter plus eventually forgot the combination to the safe.
