“I’ve had a banking relationship with PNC Bank for 15 years and I just got a call to verify unusual activity,” the post reads.
“He asked me to confirm a couple transactions then asked, ‘For what purpose are you buying Bitcoin’”.
The purchase was made from exchanges Coinbase and Xapo.
“I told him I wouldn’t answer, he then asked, ‘What are you going to do with the Bitcoin’”.
“I again told him I wouldn’t answer. He then informed me that his security team told him they would ‘exit the relationship with me’ if they didn’t get satisfactory answers.”
