Ever been prevented from exchanging US Dollars for Euro in the USA?

I’m wondering if ANYONE has ever been prevented from exchanging US Dollars (cash) for Euro (cash) at a bank in the USA? I have a friend who tried to exchange some Dollars for Euro at a BMO Harris Bank before going on a trip to Europe. He filled out the paperwork and gave it to the teller who entered the information into the system (name, social security number and picture i.d.). A couple minutes later the teller came back and said, “You’ve been denied. We can’t do the exchange for you.” He asked the teller what the reason was for the denial and she said, “I’m not permitted to tell you.”
Any ideas about what could be going on? Please write a comment if you have some experience of knowledge of this sort of thing. Thanks.
