I volunteered to bring a check to the bank for the company a few years ago and the company requested I return with some money for petty cash. The bank wanted to take my fingerprint for identification purposes before giving me any money back from the deposit (possibly because it was the company‰??s, not my, account). I requested to see the MSDS for the ink. They did not have one and claimed they were not required to have one.
The bank manager told me that it was "just ink." I asked her what it was made of. She replied ‰??ink.‰??(!) I told her I know what it is called, and what it does, I wanted to know what was in it before I put it on my skin.
Need less to say, I returned without any petty cash. Apparently, Federal Regulations allow them to ask for the fingerprint, and there seems to be no Agency that requires any sort of record keeping or ingredient or safety regulation for banks.
