I took out Canadian citizenship in 1973 (1)with the intent

Customer Question

Customer: ***** *****. I took out Canadian citizenship in 1973 (1)with the intent to renounce US citizenship (2) took an oath at the citizenship process renouncing all other affeliations (3) had a government job which required an oath of alegiance and (4) was denied entry to the US when I posed no threat "the the soverignty of the US" each of which should , I think prove no US citizenship exists. Right? A stockbroker is also phishing for information for identity theft and preventing me from closing the account and closing the Electronic Funds Transfer link to my life savings. I've complained to authorities (IROC & police) but my life savings is still at risk. How to protect it? Full story at

Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.
Yes, you have done everything you need to do to renounce your US Citizenship, but I do not understand what the issue is with the bank account and what that has to do with the US Citizen Status preventing you from getting the funds? Is it because the broker is wanting to withhold the 30% tax money from the funds, since you are a non-resident alien now?
