Secondly... I can deposit $20k in my account, no problem. But, if I attempt to withdraw $10K, here come the questions as to the reason for my withdraw. WTH is this? I can't go to a country auction to possibly buy a tractor without being suspect? LOL

Old thread but if you want to know why you get charged for over 6 withdrawals/transfers from a savings account, google FEDERAL REGULATION D. It isn't a bank policy and even an imaginative banker can do nothing about it. It is a federal regulation.

"In consumer banking, "Regulation D" often refers to 204.2(d)(2) of the regulation, which places a limit of six withdrawals or outgoing transfers per month from savings or money market accounts via several transaction methods. Transactions counted against the limit include "preauthorized or automatic transfer, or telephonic (including data transmission) agreement, order or instruction, or by check, draft, debit card, or similar order made by the depositor and payable to third parties."

Some place now have remote capture (where they acctually process the check right there instead of having to bring it to a bank. And about all these non sufficent fund fees, I really dont know how you can overdraw your account so many times and not know it.

Again, federal government requirements for reporting cash transactions over certain limits. All the things most people blame on banks are actually federal regulations. You can google it all.

Most of my dealings are carried through my Greater Central Texas Federal Credit Union account and it's always smooth.
