I've been a globe trotter for years. I've never had a bank block access to my accounts.

this is very common if you come to Thailand. Banks will do the same as soon as they see Thailand IP. 

Are you sure that you  moved to BKK, and not China?

Well I must confess, I have noticed on TVF that the US banks do seem to a lot more troublesome than their UK counterparts.

 

I've been living in various locations around the world, including China ever since the advent of on-line banking and never had any adverse issues.

It's not only some US banks that are geoblock; in my experience Capital One blocks whereas Bank of America doesn't. Even the not so wonderful AT&T sometimes needs a VPN to log in. What I find strange are the regular US businesses that prohibit access from non-US IP addresses. The latest one I have discovered is Home Depot!

That is one that I find pissing me off constantly when trying to plan some upgrades to my place in the US from the beach here. 
 

Enough to get me to get my phone-home VPN up and running reliably... so I guess I can thank them.  Now signing up for VOIP accounts or new credit cards or whatever is nice and easy.  I wonder if the “bad guys” ever thought of that...
