My wife received the same letter while our Bank Manager, who is our next door neighbour, was in our house, like you said, he explained that on the face of it, it's the Money Laundering Regulations but is also to collate as much information on individuals as the governments can.

He said that if you don't comply, your account will almost certainly be closed down with a note on your Bank de France record which means it will be near impossible to open another French account and it's very possible you may be subject to an in-depth investigation by the Impots.
