The U.S. government has a surveillance program with a database of over 150 million money transfers. Transfers between everyday people here in the U.S., and other people in over 20 other countries.

Senator Ron Wyden is investigating this surveillance program located at the Transaction Record Analysis Center (TRAC).

Wyden said the scope of the surveillance program and federal agencies’ role in it, is far greater than initially revealed.

According to internal documents, hundreds of agencies have access to the program’s database. This includes federal, state, and even local law-enforcement agencies. They can all see the full names of each and every sender, as well as each and every recipient, and each and every dollar amount.
