    To summarize, get to the point already.

    Give me figures, the information.
    I don't need a long drawn out story to get the gist.
    Well that's fine if that is they way you are. Unfortunate, though, as you are selling yourself short.
    No men are anywhere, and Im allowed to go in, because Im the owner of the pageant and therefore Im inspecting it, Trump said... Is everyone OK? You know, theyre standing there with no clothes. Is everybody OK? And you see these incredible looking women, and so I sort of get away with things like that.

    I disagree, I read it through.
    It's too wordy for my tastes.

    What it amounts to is, the government lied, the banks lied and the party keeps going.
    Goes back to the ole libertarian argument of, don't pick favorites, let them die if they have to.

    I may be wrong, but banks don't get that way, all on their own.
    They walked it all the way up, hand in hand with the government.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    Actually, I got a copy and read it first, then spent $20 for a lawyer to answers a few questions I had about it. Sadly, the one I had to sign was a little different than the one I studied - so it took me 30+ min to read and compare.

    You think thats necessary or the right thing for banks to put you through....plus you paid part of the fee upfront paying a lawyer and I dont know where you live but around here talking to a lawyer on the phone cost more than that..

    It's not only the big banks. I belong to a local NJ bank. They now charge me if I do not use their ATM and recently I stopped payment on a check and they charged my account by 30.00. This is outrageous!! Wish I could keep my money in my mattress!! I hate banks!!

    I dont use atms I refuse to pay a fee to access my own money and we only write checks for certain bills...its tough and I share your pain...but greed has ooozed throughout our society. All we can do is minimize them raping us as much as possible. Just imagine if the republicans got their way and their were NO regulations on the pigs at the trough.
    I for one will rejoice if bank of america goes belly up like all the experts are predicting.

    I can understand the stopped payment charge, although $30 seems high. It does require extra personal labor time for a bank employee to process the stop payment order. Not a standard transaction. The ATMs are another story. They want to charge us to use our money for an electronic transaction and that's not right.

    We use a bank that is part of a well known company that is associated more with stock investing and two credit unions (one in our summer place the other in our winter place). No charges. Usually get cash at Costco and we mostly use the AmEx card from them. We even get 'electronically' transfeered money (wired), e.g. to pay for a home purchase, free.

    In my area Publix atms do not charge any fees...of course your bank can still charge a few...but if it doesnt its free...
