    I’d be in too, except we went credit union back in 2005 when we got over $600 of overdraft fees for a $14 overdraft plus a held deposit (which BofA did held for no good reason) which would have covered the overdraft and all the payments we scheduled.  B of A used some arbitrary reason to hold the deposit. So we changed banks. We have remained away from large banks since then.

    • Nirvanasteve

      I had an experience like that with Wells Fargo. Then I went to US Bank, and they did the exact same thing, but deceptively so by making the charges smaller and in more measured out increments. Those $20 overdraft fees really added up over the years. I certainly look forward to switching to a credit union. 

    • CelticBrewer

      12+ years with BoA and I only had one fee- which I called and complained about and they promptly and cheerfully removed.  Of course, my solution is to not overdraft my account.  Damn those greedy banks, huh?

          Not to be a jerk or anything, but banks put holds on checks due to the fact that they HAVE to. I mean, it’s like you coming up to me and saying, “Hey this notebook paper is good for cash from bob two states over. I promise, so can you give me cash for it now and not check on that with Bob?” I mean, recourse is recourse….

          • Garban

            Are the banks seriously paying people money at this point to insert dumbshit into other people’s mouths and misconstrue everything?

            If so they might do better at paying someone more than 2 cents.Because this bullshit dismissal of EVERYONE ELSE’S LEGITIMATE PROBLEMS is not just obvious, but downright ridiculous.Let’s say a bank holds a check, and regular procedure is to hold check for 7 days before approving payment.Customer withdraws money on the 8th day, believing that their funds have been processed. There are no indications of going OVERDRAFT. Everything in the account DISPLAYS ITSELF TO IT’S END-USER as not having caused an overdraft.Suddenly, BofA decides, “HEY WE DECIDED TO FORGO PROCEDURE AND HOLD YOUR CHECK LONGER! YOU’RE NOW PAYING $600 OVERDRAFT FEE!”Yeah. Here’s a better way of dealing with a bank than your submission and smugness (of which you must have much of to even be able to write your statement).BY NOT DEALING WITH THEM AT ALL.But hey, “TOO BAD YOU GOT SCAMMED LOL! BUT IT’S A BANK SO SUCK IT UP!” is really cool too bro.

    Here’s a thought, most everyday humans are tied into any number of systems at any one time..e.g (family, work, consuming e.t.c.)

    All of these systems are related to our economic and social structure and progression.

    So everyday people have no time to offer to the cause, but they like all of us have power no matter how little it all builds up.

    My idea is this construct a widely circulated e-leaflet stating this message.

    What we can do together!

    We the Human collective society understand that the general public at large has many important responsibilities such as family, work, bills e.t.c. and are therefore unable to camp out and protest.

    However we can still use all our collective power to send bad business, corporations, financial institutions and leaders a clear message of what we expect from them.

    We shall organise a two week campaign whereupon as a consuming society we can speak with our pockets.

    On each day of the week an unpopular economic giant will be be targeted and as a consuming society we can refuse to trade with them, all together all day long.

    For an example:

    No media Monday – don’t download any i-tunes, withdraw your purchasing power from media giants we are unhappy with.

    No news corporations on Tuesday- (Don;t buy your newspaper, don’t download any e-news, don’t; watch any news. 

    No banking on Wednesday – only make cash transactions all day long no credit/debit card use, everyone who are able can transfer a £1 from their bank account to their paypal account.

    No Supermarket Saturday – Only purchase local goods from local shops empowering the small business.

    This idea is in it’s early stages, but it is the small things we can all do together that make a big statement. It is this statement that the general public with little time and heavy responsibility need to hear.

    Empowering us all with achievable objectives.

    If it were to work correctly then clear messages would be heard globally and large economic entities would feel forever under the watchful eye of the purchasing society. 

    Without consuming and trade there is no economic system.

    We don’t have to stop consuming we just need to exercise the power it gives us as a society as a whole.

    I hope someone will take this idea and help it evolve into what it could be.

    Many thanks for taking the time to read.

    If you be offended then look away, if you be interested then breathe life the idea and help towards physicality.

    What we conceive in our mind we create in our world.

      Thats deep stuff , your right there … people are dependent on the systems that have grown in the last 100 or so years.. but we forget that they are there to make life “easier” we forget that they are there to help us not enslave us … you cant forget that there are small businesses and people who actually care about you that need the money which is given to these business giants.

      ideas like above are in the right way of thinking.

    • Markymarkster

      Sirius…..good calls …all of them.  If you can’t confront them and take them on in a direct manner. The actions you mention must be put into play on a large scale.   In warfare it is cutting off supply lines such as food, water, and destroying the morale.  These are the kinds of tactics which must be applied in order to win.  Your list is just the start.  I heard a good one the other day.  It involves a large number of people withdrawing their 401k’s, investments etc…from the Stock/Financial sector

    • Raymond Castro

      This runs into exactly the same problem as those silly “No Gas June 15″ events spread on Facebook:  You buy no gas on that day, or don’t watch the news that day, or don’t withdraw cash that day, sure.  But you make it all up the day before or the day after and it doesn’t affect their bottom line in the slightest.

      Your suggestion will, similarly, be a complete failure and send absolutely no message.  The only way to send a proper message is to completely refuse to use their services.  This is what Anonymous is, rightfully, suggesting with this video.  Move your money out of Corporate’s greedy paws, and put it into a Non-Profit Organization.  Not, don’t use it on Monday, but don’t use it.  Ever.

    America used to work The people had work. The system worked. It was far, far from perfect, but it we all had some share in the struggles AND the rewards. But somewhere along the way, we lost our way. Because now we have an economy and a political system that works only for the rich. We need to get back to what America was, and what it should be, and what it can be.  Occupy Wall Street is no longer just  a place called  Zuccotti Park —  Zuccotti Park is everywhere. You can try to pen us in, you can take away our generators, you can beat us, you can mace and tear-gas us , and you can try to “permit” us to death….but you can’t kill an idea.  You can’t keep down people’s hopes and dreams for a better life…..a life with dignity and freedom….for themselves and their kids. More power to Occupy Wall Street, as it spreads to every town and city  – because  OWS is  us, and for us, and by us. America has found it’s voice, and it demands fairness and justice. This land IS your  land! We want it back! We want our lives back!
