something abt switzerland's neutrality so everyone respects their decision to not divulge their client's info in view of being fair and unbias. in other words, as long as your money is in a swiss bank, most governments wont be able to find out how much u have in there

just my understanding from history lessons, pls correct me if im wrong

That is about all there is to it. Switzerland is neutral. Your money won't get the taxes it would in your country.

:cool:

And unlike other banks you pay to hold an account with them. You can get some good idea what having or opening a swiss account is all about at this link:

its the bank secret that attracts them all.... swiss banks (in the past) were not required to ask any questions regarding the origin, nor where they not required to answer any asked by the government. so you got money, nobody will know.... now of course things are a bit different...
then there is the number account... pretty cool thing... it has only a number and nobody knows the name... another way to hide money... and if you die, then they keep the money for very long time...

cheers from a swiss

Well, I only know that Bank of Africa must be pretty pissed, since it is always the target of inheritance-claim hoax.

5% interest for USD$

Hell, sure beats our local banks. Anyone knows how much the interest rate is for local bank foreign currency deposit?
