I am a non-us resident, I am doing some biz using paypal, the problem here is I cant withdraw money from paypal, they told me I need a US bank accout. I searched the net, seems after that patriot acct nealy all the banks in US do not accept ppl who do not have SSN to open the account. Only one or 2 sites still claim they could do that for me, but I am not sure if I can trust em or not. I just wanna know is there any bank accept direct apply ? Or any trustworth agent could do that for me. I would like to know if there is anyone who get the US bank account successfully after Sep. 2003. Thanks a lot.
