Jeez....what’s the deal with these serious crackdowns? Do you think they’re just thinning out the herd? Or looking more like full outlaw?
My best suspicion is just good old fashion fear. Fear of what "might" happen. From over zealous government to idiot proprietors, Merchant Banks live in fear.
Credit Card Processing is indistinguishable from "Money Laundering" and differences are only in perception.
NOT IN NEW JERSEY in 2019
A good development
