Allegation Kiwibank ‘froze account’ of popular Twitter user at Parliament Protest

A popular Twitter user providing updates on the ground from the Parliament Protest claims Kiwibank froze his account.

FUBAR nz (@NzFubar) tweeted the shocking allegation today. No explanation for the action was given by the bank, which ‘unfroze’ them after FUBAR nz and supporters went to a branch to sort the matter out.

This week Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau controversially invoked emergency powers which give his government power to freeze the personal bank accounts of Ottawa protesters. To date the Ardern government has not indicated if similar measures will be used in New Zealand, nothwithstanding, the Kiwibank unilateral action, if deliberate, is concerning.

  1. Hope everyone takes a good long look at this little preview of a digital currency/social credit score world.

    You really will own nothing, but you really WONT be happy.

    • Yes, my sis lives in Sweden (a cashless society). The government can flip the off switch at any time for any reason. We’ve seen what happened to the Canadian truckers when they went to buy food “Card declined.”

  2. Govt created Kiwibank,no surprise where their loyalty is. Start using cash as often as you possibly can.Avoid credit cards and other forms of usury,that’s how the banks exploit us

  3. Keep debts as short as possible and stash more groceries. Ardern doesn’t like imported style protests and I don’t like imported Marxist government.

    • Kiwiland got more food than other parts of the world. So generally no one should starve. However, stronger ones need to help the less able. Providing goons don’t get in the way and they are everywhere in nz.

  4. Nothing would surprise me.

    I see Microsoft took out a patent for a cryptocurrency system using body activity data – W2020060606 in May 2019.

    Nothing to see here – RIGHT?

  5. ASB froze Billy Tk’s last week. Actually he went online to pay some bills and there were no accounts. They had just vanished. He then contacted them who said he no longer meets the criteria of the “terms and conditions” of the bank.

    Luckily, they allowed him to take his funds elsewhere….

    Here we go people, trudeau and Ardern are from the same school…. beware…

    and if planning to do so, get your cash out of there soon as…. banks will shut if there is a run on their cash reserves which are only 10% of what they have loaned out….
