Porn Star Layton Benton

Chase Closed My Bank Account ...

Because I Do Porn!

Porn star Layton Benton is getting screwed with her pants on ... by her bank ... because she claims they closed her account without warning because she does porn.

Benton just called in to "TMZ Live" to talk about the Chase Bank scandal that's rocking the porn biz. Benton, and several other porn stars, have gone public with claims that Chase has been closing their bank accounts for no reason. 

Benton told us she only learned her account was closed when she tried to take money out of an ATM ... but was denied. She says the bank told her they were closing her account because "it's a risk" ... but never explained further.

Sources in the porn biz tell TMZ, this has been happening to a lot of porn stars and has been going on for quite some time. We're told porn stars who have had accounts for a long time are not affected, but newer stars are having difficulties.

Our sources say banks are tracking specific types of transactions -- such as deposits from webcam work -- and are flagging them as "irregular activity" because they're paid out so sporadically (on a minute-by-minute basis).

We reached out to Chase for comment ... asking them directly if they have been closing the accounts of porn stars or if they close accounts based on profession ... they had no comment.

I wouldn't call Porn a risk but I certainly would call JPMorgan Chase bank a risk. Buy their stock at your own risk because something tells me it going downhill fast.

Obvious it doesnt take much to be a "porn star" these days. From the looks of things it just takes a ALOT of make up. I mean ALOT of it.

So let me get this straight. TMZ has gone from a really cool celebrity news website to a sleazy, porn filled, penis showing, race baiting site that is quickly falling down a slippery slope of sperm stained sheets until Harvey can't get it up anymore no matter how many little boys he surrounds himself with. He used to be a decent Lawyer, but now he just acts like a smut peddling chicken hawk. Great legacy Harvey.

I bank at Chase and I'm glad that Chase keeps porno whores out. It's about time that an organization caters to a higher morality standard. I have invested in Chase for over 20 years and because of this, I will continue my ventures with the the Chase bank.

That policy should be illegal, if this is indeed the case. If what these people are doing is legal, then the banks should not be discriminatory.

Chase does that to non porn stars all the time, for no reason either. Chase seriously screws over folks.

I wonder how she gets her money out of Chase if they closed her account? Will she have to go to a branch? Will they need extra security because a woman who does porn walks in the front doors? Will they need to clear the bank of acceptable customers just so they can chase Little Miss Porn Actress out?

F*ck Chase.
