If you are having trouble accessing your Belize Bank online account, using a debit card, taking out a few dollars from the ATM, or just chasing a cheque, you are not alone, many Belize Bank account holders have been experiencing these troubles for the past week. According to Bank Executive Chairman Lyndon Guiseppi, that's because the bank is transitioning from a System- which they had been using for 15 years - to a new system called Fusion Banking Essence. It is a state of the art banking platform that they say will improve overall services for you the consumers. But the transition has seen basic services collapse. Guiseppi says that the system shift began last Monday and these gliches with the online site and the ATM should normalize by the end of this week. The Belize Bank apologizes for any inconveniences caused.

perhaps losing 75% of its deposits in the last 6 months means they dont have any money? https://www.theguardian.com/business/2016/aug/02/lord-ashcrofts-belize-bank-hit-wave-withdrawals-bbi

They have threatened customers with closing their accounts if the customer didn't provide a mound of minutiae. Threats are always going to get negative results. This only served to make their depositors insecure..

See, now that's funny. The US is one of the best places to hide money, the only places ranked better are Switzerland and Hong Kong. Delaware is a cesspool. You can't point fingers all you want but the US is one of the worst offenders for hiding money but because it's at "home" nothing is done about it.
