    This seems like a good place to link an article I read last night about the new overdraft rules:

    Raise your hand if you don't use a bank or other similar type of financial institution.

    What does that have to do with trusting banks? People are so imbedded in electronic monetary transactions that they have little other choice.

    Rather childish.
    But, its sad but true. Also true that the bank customers do not read the small print and assume too much.
    Banking is yet another area that needs reform badly.
    No more two languages.
    No more small print.
    Only total openness and honesty will do for this age.
    I think most small banks do practice this. And over the years they have improved..
    The large banks, Bank of America for one, do not, IMO.
    These huge institutions simply do not respect their customer.

    So you utilize a financial institution to conduct purchasing transactions?

    Thank you for the great article in the link. It is 1984 and the banks are Big Brother.

    Yes I do. But, I could easily get by without them. My banking account is free. I know all their dirty tricks from experience. I use them like I would a rubber dummy.

    I think even BANKERS don't trust banks... It's too bad the small town, local banks and credit unions get a bad rap due to the perfidious antics of the larger interstate/national banks.
