Skip to comments.'Moral issues' lead banks to refuse porn stars bank accounts and loans

Being a porn star might not meet the approval of everyone you meet but you might think your bank manager would be one person who wouldn't have cause to complain.
Adult film actress Chanel Preston has starred in close to 150 porn flicks and is well compensated for her time, but now it appears she is having trouble keeping a bank account.

Freedom to NOT associate with them is part of the freedom of association
Thing is they freely associate with the perversion that is the Democrat party so their claims of morality ring pretty damn hollow.
I wonder how much ‘support’ the porn industry will give the Dems in 2014. The USSC has determined that Porn is legal so they don’t need to pay off the dems. In fact, it was dem admins in Cali that went all mafia on them and drove a bunch to Vegas and Florida.
And in the past they were big donors. Flynt more than most. With the Dem controlled banks turning on a multi billion dollar industry....well....gonna be fun to watch.
Not to mention that JP Morgan Chase (mentioned in the article), Bank of America, HSBC, etc etc, have all been caught and some fined for knowingly laundering money for the Mexican drug cartels.
Too big to fail is cool if you can be classified as such.
They fake morality.
Several times my sister has recieved small to medium checks from bank “settlements” because these moral banks were cheating customers.
Got one today, as a matter of fact, from something about overdrafts... $3.87 .. lol
You have a point. Can anyone imagine the local bank president in the 1940s or 50s, knowingly making loans or opening accounts for the porn industry, or for Mexican crime gangs?
In those days the local bank president was a memnber of the community, maybe went to your church.
I can understand Los Angeles banks turning down mortgages for talent in the area, since the condom law passed in LA last year is basically going to force all production to move elsewhere... placing mortgaged homes at a higher risk.
Unintended consequences strikes again.
Maybe because they withdrew too many times.
IMO not serving actors inporn is fine if you also don’t serve their customers. To only reject the actor is worse than criminalizing prostitutes but not their johns, insofar that porn is legal.
I wonder if she was Dem or Rep? Also, I would imagine the porn industry to be rather pro-1st and 2nd Amend. and for small, less intrusive govt. So I wonder if there are more fiscally conservative porn stars, you know, other than all the illicit sex.
Nope. Porn industry is all very leftist and immoral, shocking I know.
Occupational hazard. ;^)
But how so they know? They don’t inhabit any place in my world, so I would know them, their faces, their names. Wonder how the bank officials knew.
Perverts cannot keep themselves from sharing
I should have thought of that. I can’t imagine telling anyone if I did this sort of thing! I know.....naive.
They just got to let the whole world know every little detail, parade it around. Exhibitionism and stuff....
Well, if taking out a loan/mortgage, they need to show their source(s) of income.
Go to WalMart and get a Blurebird account....they dont care if you are porno star.
Like....what....the checks or direct deposit say “for porn work”
Let’s hope they aren’t even more specific.
I believe BOA and Chase are also refusing to do business with firearm related businesses.
Maybe the banks want to avoid trouble from female employees having to interact with people in the porn business, and claiming “hostile working environment”.
Maybe if she showed up at the bank wearing some clothes, she’d find better service. Enough is enough already.
Heard that one myself.
She wouldn’t have trouble keeping an account if she were a drug dealer.
Banks love drug dealers.
Prostitution is illegal, unless someone’s filming it!
While I would be happy to see bank managers involved in shunning such disgusting behavior, something about this story does not sit right. I have some questions but no answers.
Could it be that some mohammedans are raising a fuss?
Is this just a way to set a precedent so they can go after conservatives based on some sort of claim of moral objection?
Are the claims of the “victims” bogus and just a premise for inviting more Obamugabe regs?
Maybe the tellers don't like handling all those sticky $1 bills.
Seriously, the acting is atrocious, production is amateurish and it's always the same story line, but OTOH the porn industry never asked me for a bailout...
Does this include high profile hotel chains that offer pay-per-porn channels for lonely travellers to jerk off to?
When homosexual acts were legally considered "unnatural" and illegal, same sex porn was not outright illegal or "obscene".
Yet when the age of consent is under 18 (16, 17) or bestiality is legal (and it is/was legal in a number of states) you could engage in the acts, you just couldn't film/photograph them.
None of the distinctions make sense.
I read an earlier article the porn stars are opening accounts with their porn "stage" name, which can probably make it pretty obvious in some cases, I would guess.
Has she tried a sperm bank?
What business of the bank’s is your line of employment to open an account? A loan, that’s different, but an account?
And yet public school teachers can pretty much pick and choose what they want to tell your kids about anal cucumber sex between men and goats or anything else. It’s a public health issue, after all!

I'm 50/50 on this topic.
