Banker Tells Black Business Owner “I Don’t Feel Comfortable Giving You The Money”

  • Gwen Samuel, the president and founder of the Connecticut Parents Union, said she asked to withdraw just over $1,000 on Monday morning to pay a vendor from the TD Bank branch in Southington where she’s done business for 16 years, reported WTIC-TV.
  • “She hands me my license and she says, ‘I don’t feel comfortable giving you the money,'” Samuel said. “So, I got confused, so I said, ‘You don’t feel comfortable giving me the money?’ She said, ‘Well you just deposited the check yesterday.'”
  • Samuel told the teller her deposit had already cleared, which she had already verified online, and the teller didn’t disagree. “She said, ‘Oh yeah, it cleared, the money is available — I just don’t feel comfortable giving it to you,'” Samuel recalled.
