BofA's message to people who bailed them out: Fuck You

Posted By on Fri, Sep 30, 2011 at 12:35 PM

The country’s biggest bank, and Charlotte’s own Overlord, Bank of America, has a special message for its customers who helped bail out their greedy, incompetent asses: Fuck You. The bank’s happy greeting comes in the form of a new $5 monthly fee for customers who use a BofA debit card. According to The New York Times, Wells Fargo and Chase are currently testing $3 debit card fees, and those charmers over at SunTrust also charge $5.

Here’s my one and only question: Since the big banks have made it abundantly clear how little they give a rip about their “valuable customers,” over and over and over again, and in so many ways, why does anyone still do business with them?

For a while after the bank bailouts, there was a movement asking Americans to “Move Your Money,” out of the banking behemoths and into smaller banks and credit unions. At our house, we moved our vast fortune (ahem) to a credit union, and believe me, it makes a difference. No sneaky crap crammed into your statements, and employees who act as if you’re a likable human being rather than just the latest pain in the butt to walk in off the streets. With these new debit card fees, the banking Overlords are practically begging you to move your money somewhere else. For crying out loud, take ‘em up on it.
