POLITICS 05/28/2018 05:45 am ET Lawmakers' latest attempt to fight human trafficking could end up hurting voluntary sex workers. By Jenavieve Hatch A new law that shuttered websites used by voluntary sex workers to screen clients has already forced some to risk their lives by returning to the streets to find business. But the broad bipartisan alliance that passed that legislation last month isn’t done. Now, Sens. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) and Marco Rubio (R-Fla.), who both voted for the first bill, are pushing a proposal in the Senate that would impose similar restrictions on sex workers’ bank accounts — a move that sex workers say could further endanger their income, safety and lives. Just like last month’s Allow States and Victims to Fight Online Sex Trafficking Act, Warren and Rubio’s End Banking for Human Traffickers Act is intended to crack down on human trafficking. The bill, which passed the House in overwhelming fashion last … [Read more...] about First Congress Took Sex Workers’ Websites. Now It’s Coming For Their Bank Accounts.

Zelle is an app that is supposed to make it easy and safe for you to send money to friends or relatives. But some consumers who never signed up for Zelle said strangers are using the service to steal money in a matter of seconds. Zelle is said to be the new fast, safe and easy way to send money from one bank account to another in a matter of minutes. But consumers like Brad Miller say they've been robbed in a matter of seconds. Miller said he's banked with Wells Fargo for more than 29 years. He said everything was fine until recently, when he got an alert on his phone saying his Wells Fargo password had been changed. Bus Driver, 77, in Deadly Crash Had 14 License Suspensions "I immediately hop on my computer and try to log in and of course I'm locked out," he said.

IMAGINE turning 25 and seeing that your bank account had been boosted with a birthday present of £10,000. It’s the stuff of dreams, right? Well, if The Resolution Foundation had its way, this wouldn’t just be every young person’s fantasy - it would actually happen for real. The independent think tank says all 25 year-olds, no matter how rich or poor, should receive a lovely little £10k nest egg from the government to help with tuition fees, buying a home or caring costs. Supposedly, this would balance out inter-generational unfairness to help young people, already priced out of the housing market and struggling with insecure jobs, to stand on their own financial feet. But, if this were to happen in reality, would anyone really look after the handout in a sensible way and invest it wisely in their future? Or would they head to the nearest travel agent and splurge it on a one-way trip to Bali? We take a closer look at the bank accounts and spending habits of … [Read more...] about Can you guess who has £10,000 and who has £24? What’s really inside these 25-year-olds’ bank accounts

A day before former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort was indicted last year, special counsel Robert Mueller looked to seize accounts at three different banks, Politico is reporting. The move was disclosed in a list of search and seizure warrants prosecutors submitted to a federal court on Thursday according to the website, which posted the document online. The document was filed after Manafort's defense team said the government was withholding too much information about the warrants it obtained. The document also showed moves to search "premises located in Alexandria, Virginia," a storage locker in Alexandria; a Manafort email account; a computer hard drive, and information relating to "five telephone numbers controlled by AT&T." Prosecutors also said details about the searches were not released because it relates to the identity of informants or "to ongoing investigations that are not the subject of either of the current prosecutions involving Manafort."
