    I wrote a check and had a lil more than needed to cash it. My fiance took my debit card to a few stores to get stuff for the kids and used it not knowing i wrote a check…

    well the bank cashed the check first, and hit me with overdraft fees for 4 transactions all less than 10 dollars each.. and… they wouldn’t credit any of them.

    Why do we allow banks to charge so many bullshit fees? Why is it even legal to do so? It doesn’t cost $35 to deny a charge or refuse a check.

    I remember my Chinese college calculus instructor who, after showing us the calculus formula for interest over time, proceeded to ask us why when he put money in a U.S. bank, he had *less* money months later.

    Do low Fed rates actually encourage banks to push these sorts of fees in order to make up for their lower loan returns?

    Haha, I’m currently wrestling with Key Bank over a $0.23 overdraft that’s plunged my account down to $335 in the red.

    Credit Unions, here I come!
