No, it is not. If you would like me to inquire at my local Sovereign

bad credit so I could not be a signatory (and nobody at tdf knows me 
so why would you trust me, anyhow?) but at least I could get 
information for you. It might be possible 
sorry, to finish that sentence:

It might be possible to first establish a Santander account in Germany 
and from there set up a U.S. account -- Santander International has a 
branch in Manhattan

... and in that case, perhaps inquiring at my local Sovereign bank would 
just be adding another unnecessary layer of complexity.

Let me know if there's anything I can do locally in NYC.

Hi kazar

Firstly I'd say - slow down a bit - let this idea percolate a bit.

_If_ kickstarter is something of interest then the way to go would be
IMO to have German nationals open an account in a US bank, and that can
be done. 

CitiBank and Bank of America I think are the best candidates as they
both do business in Germany, IIRC, but involvement of the US consulate
in Germany is required to handle authentication of personal
identification documents in Germany, I think. 

Time may be the larger hurdle here however, in other words, it may be
possible but not in a timely enough fashion.

Best wishes,
