By Tiffany Sanders, published on Nov 5, 2011

...grow increasingly dependent on them. Our use of cash declines every year, with a projected additional drop of $101 billion annually by 2015. It definitely takes more work to operate in cash, but “it’s harder” is a far cry from “I have no choice.”

Recently, in the wake of Bank of America’s announcement that it will soon begin charging consumers a monthly fee for debit card use, some advocacy groups have been encouraging individuals to take their money out of banks and place it in credit unions. And that movement seems to be gaining ground—more than 650,000 new members ... (more)

Feeling A Bit Lighter In The Pocketbook?

By Randy Mitchell, published on Nov 2, 2011

...air than ever before. Again, the geniuses who control product manufacturing and distribution think the consumer isn’t watching, but believe me, we are.

Did you see the news lately about the wonderful banking industry? Although they’ve changed their minds (see the link below), Bank of America tried charging customers $5 a month for using debit cards. Really? And this is for what? The right to spend the money which WE, your customers, already own and just happened to allow your institution the privilege to house.

Credit Profiling: Just Another Way Of Being Watched

By Michelle Yang, published on Jul 21, 2009

I called them to find out the reason and they told me, due to my ‘inactivity’ they had the right to close it down. The woman also questioned me about some dental charge made months ago stating that seemed to be an inappropriate charge on a business card, making me feel as if I was using my card wrongfully. In addition, I did not get a heads up letter as to what was going to take place, nor did they try to offer transferring my points to my other Bank of America... (more)

It is not the Banks' responsibility to balance every customer's check book. If the customer attempts to spend more money than what is in his/her account,... (more)
