Google Translate of the above text:

Quote:
"That's why the banks to take drastic measures. Thus, accounts of Americans whose tax status is not fully understood, simply blocked. As long as they do not provide all the required documents and forms, they do not get their money.

The Category 2 banks take this into account, to break Swiss law, as Tobias Rohner, partner of the law firm Bill Isenegger Ackermann says. "Banks ranges of suspected tax evasion to block funds to their customers. However, it is questionable whether this is permitted under Swiss law. '"
But let's be brutally honest here, UT. The bank doesn't need you. They don't care about you. As an American you're a gigantic hassle. It sucks, but that's how it is. So your choice is to either comply with the request or have your accounts frozen and/or closed, without them giving you so much as a candy heart for the favor. An attorney probably would not be worth the expense. Sorry!!
