50+ hippy chick from NY - STATE - and yes, I'm sensitive about that.

I had a Chase card 5plus years ago. their interest: horrible. Every excuse was used to charge all kinds of weird fees and late charges. One trick was to wait and add a late fee, and a charge, and only tell us after the right amount we sent turned into the wrong amount. We paid it off and they tried the same trick. Not much we could do but pay, though I told their rep. I would sue them if I ever heard from them again: I even gave them my lawyers name on a letter after the call. Never heard from the again. We are currently having the same problem with Citi. About to settle it, one way or another. These guys no longer run businesses: they run scams that should have them in prison for a long time after their bank accounts are emptied and given to customers who have been screwed. These companies are the prime example why deregulation is also a scam.

I will be totally divested of MBNA soon. They say I was late w/my Dec payment, though I made that payment in Nov. Going to my credit union.

Ah, BOA. That's where my sense of outrage saved me. A while back banks started charging for me to walk in and cash a check from their client: up to $30 according to one bank manager I argued with. Of course they handle that check one way or another whether I bring it in, personally, or my credit union sends it to them. Of course, one way or another, they charge their customers for their accounts. So now their client's vendors have to BRIBE a teller to cash a check from one of their accounts? At best: double dipping. In actuality: theft of services. Servicing that account is paid: again "one way or another," by their clients. I have never paid that fee and more than a few tellers/managers have been told exactly what I just typed. They never have an answer. I think they just expect people not to think about it. I have a long list of banks I will never do business with, and when 5th/3rd (strange name with a history) opened up branches here I told one of their people in a store who was trying to hook up customers for her boss what I thought. She chuckled and just said, "I can't blame you."

Ken Carman We have banks here who simply will not cash a check drawn on their bank if you don't have an account there. All the more absurd since I'm talking about paychecks from one of their biggest clients. AND they definitely knew who I was and that I worked for the company since I went to the bank daily with the company's deposits.
