Check THIS isht out.
For me this quote is the crux of how wrong the banks are--
"It's discouraging," Gortler said. "People have limited funds and they don't need to be giving money to the banks. They need to be keeping that money to feed their families and pay bills."
So the states found ways to save money in costs of disbursing unemployment benefits by issuing bank cards which allows access to the money--but the banks in question levees fees on the use of those cards after one or two free transactions with the bank.
Scum-sucking, bottom-feeding, parasitic, opportunistic leeches. Oh, and check THIS out--
Some banks even charge overdraft fees of up to $20 — even though they could decline charges for more than what's on the card.
Yeah, news flash--THEY DO THAT TO NORMAL CARD HOLDERS TOO, EVEN THOUGH THEY COULD STILL DECLINE FOR CHARGES FOR MORE THAN WHAT'S IN THE ACCOUNT!! Been there, done that, paid --LITERALLY-- HUNDREDS.
Oh those BASTARDS.
