I do not see how this could be called fraud. Yes, it is a burden on the banks, but if they allow you to do it (even though they are not required to do so) without charging any associated fees (which is well within their rights to do), that is on them, not the roll hunter.


There have been instances I have read about in the past where roll hunters have been investigated for fraud because they were believed to have been counterfeiting coins, just because they turned in coins so often to banks.

Interesting. Never heard of that before, are you sure you don't mean money laundering? Would like to see a link or two regarding coin roll hunters and counterfeiting.
When I listen to LED ZEPPELIN...so do my neighbors...
Roll hunting since '77
Dirt fishing since '72

Interesting concepts However, I would think notes, not coins, would be the more effective way to do either.

No one ever suspects counterfeit coins. I would have gotten away with it if it wasn't for those meddling kids

Discussing a situation like this in the abstract is not a privacy violation. They are discussing valid job-related issues. Unless they are identifying you with personal data (other than say "the guy who buys Halves every Wednesday...) then they aren't violating anyone's privacy.

If you make a stink about it the word will get out and your banks can (and just might) cut you off. They are not required to sell you coin nor accept your returns, even for a deposit into your account.

Let them talk, and if they cut you off find another bank to do business with.

Their mistake was telling you that they talked about you.
