My bank just found another way to take $ from the poor guys....Coming soon.... If you don't maintain a $1500 daily balance in your checking account or direct deposit at least $500 in a monthly statement, they will take a monthly fee of i think $7. Now that doesn't seem like a lot of money, but If a customer gets hurt, ill or loses a job, the last thing we need is to worry about the bank sucking even more $ out of our dwindling accounts. Thanks Wells Fargo for finding a way to take money from your customers when the hard times hit them. Nothing like driving to chemo or job hunting then having to worry about shopping for a new bank that offers TRUE free checking...... this is just my opinion.
