If memory serves, I was under the impression that a bank could not take a demand deposit account as collateral. Am I correct?

If memory serves also, then it would no longer be a demand deposit account because the borrower would not be able to "demand" their money.

If memory serves, you'd both be correct.

I guess I should be careful what terminology I use although I absolutely love humor!

What is your procedure if a customer requests this?

Tell them a DDA is not acceptable collateral because you can't perfect a lien.

Just say No, and that regulations require items presented for payment must be processed without preference, and that the bank has no control over what is presented. But, if they place the funds in a savings account you would be happy to make the loan that way.
