I think this is my vpn. But it’s not. So I’m from “Czechia” now.
I merely mentioned it for selling my dolls online and the b@tch at the bank looked at me like I was a money launderer.
I’ve talked to bank tellers before and they are wary because that is almost how rich people transfer money among each other. You know those art exhibitions with abstract art that look like trash? If I recall correctly, first they buy the trash art for hundreds of thousands of dollars. That art holds the value of hundreds of thousands of dollars and can be resold to their buddy if they want a bribe. I think it also does something with being tax-free or tax deductible but it’s been a long time since that conversation.
Anyway, that teller thought you might be a front for 2 rich people to pass funds through. As dumb as it is, they can’t stop you and let them monitor you as much as they want. As long as big money single purchases aren’t happening, they should leave you alone. However, I don’t know your laws and business customs.
Back when I was investigating online banking to see how a business would be run, I bookmarked a lot of them. Sadly most of them required US citizenship/residence. I even accidentally bookmarked one requiring UK citizenship, HA!
I looked through them all and narrowed them down to these. I did a bit of reading and attempted enrollment to test it out. Maybe you can try these and see how far you can get in the application before your location is unacceptable.

If anyone knows if any of these sites are shady, let me know. I’m pretty sure I compiled these from a forum somewhere. But I haven’t tried them since it was a thought exercise.
