I'm angry, frustrated and tired
Although no fan of big banks, I can understand why they did not want American clientele if they were too face huge fines if they missed reporting (snitching) on an American and to be shut out of the international banking system.
However, twice in May I've been called on the carpet to once again prove I'm not American by two banks.
In January I was also targeted by a bank to prove I wasn't American.
I read the hardships that other American expats have such as called in mortgages, loss of jobs because they can't have signing authority, lack of investment opportunities, and realise filling out yet another form is better than what they are going through.
Still, I'm tired of it. I thought by giving up the curse of being American that would be enough. I'm frustrated that it is still going on. I'm angry, even though i know anger hurts me more than those who created FATCA.
Mostly I'm sad. sad that this is happening.
