Apple and Goldman Sachs Don’t Trust Their New Banking Customers
The absurdity of this is layered and nuanced, like a souffle of clumsy, anti-customer banking practices. One trigger for such a bank security review, you see, is making a large deposit into a new account.

And the savings service was only launched a few weeks ago, so all of the accounts are new.
