El Segundo, CA (PRWEB) November 01, 2012
A trip to the bank can be a nerve-wracking experience for bank customers hunting for affordable auto or mortgage loans, or disputing ghoulish checking account overdraft fees. But some banks are all-out frightening for another reason: they’re haunted.
Go Banking Rates compiled a list of the world’s top “financial phantoms” lurking within haunted banks that turns banking into a supernatural adventure.
In its investigation, Go Banking Rates uncovered eyewitness accounts of the strange occurrences and apparitions of these historic banks. One account describes a ghostly figure of a man seen at the Old Town Spring Bank.
“To me, it looks as if he’s wearing a brown, 1930s-style hat,” shares an eyewitness from HollowHill.com. “Below the circle, I can see the outline of shoulders, a tall white collar, and it looks as if he’s wearing a brown suit jacket.”
The list of top seven haunted banks in the world includes:
1. Old Town Spring Bank in Texas
2. Commerce Bank in New Jersey
3. Mississippi Old Bank and Trust in Mississippi
4. Underground Bank in Washington
5. Bank of Montreal in Canada
6. Coutts Bank in England
7. Bank of England in England
These are just a few of the thousands of haunted banks in existence today. Luckily, for those who are squeamish when it comes to the spooky tales and eerie apparitions can enlist with online banks instead to avoid crossing the threshold of the paranormal.
