I haven't used an ATM since I was a teenager. Much easier to just cash the paycheck or write a check and have your money.

The credit card companies like Capital One, Citibank, and Chase are preparing to stick it to their customers too with higher fees, higher rates, and annual fees. As soon as they start changing my terms, OUT THEY GO!!! I don't need them. I only keep them open because supposedly it's "good for my credit rating" I'm using them. If they start trying to use me, or look to me to help recoup their losses from bad borrowers, I'm telling them to take a hike.

Bank of America is immoral. They've intentionally made changes to their rules so you don't need a social security number to open an account and get credit, allowing them to tap into the illegal immigrant market. They are now profiting and making it easier for illegals to stay in our country. I refuse to give them any business.

The banks deserve all the foreclosures they get; this is ridiculous charging those with no jobs fees to access their own money. For sure these people should stop all direct deposits and debits and then change banks. The big banks deserve to go under without Government help.

They don't even mention the fees they are getting from the businesses accepting these cards. Use cash when you can and certainly find a local bank like a credit union for your debit and if absolutely necessary, credit cards.

The laws need to change. A person should be allowed to have a bank charged with bank robbery.

Just go to your bank with the card and do a cash advance on it. No fee.

Not that difficult.
