Banks Skanking Out on Disclosing Fees



March 02, 2008 – Comments (4) | RELATED TICKERS: BAC

So sez the government.

I would submit that even when they do disclose fees, they often do so a la the slippery Bank of America, which eliminated the grace period even on zero-balance purchases without actually coming out and saying so. Instead, they hid the simple truth in several paragraphs of microscopic verbiage regarding shifting dates.

In Italy, the banks charge you to keep your money, they act as a fortress to protect your valuables. Many Italians and third world nationials do not trust banks with their money and keep their money locked away in home safes or hiden in their homes.

Many non US banks do not play this game of paying savers 2% and loaning money at 6%. Many Italians and Japanesse live with their parents, there is no moving out at 18, buying a house in the suburbs etc... I think America may move in this direction. As many US banks go BK other will restrict lending, Gen-X will not be able to afford a house or find a full time job that can pay the bills.

Would you rather have $100k in deposit at CFC or $100k in gold and silver in a safe hiden behind the book case. Report this comment

SERIOUSLY, I am a poor, well armed, red neck. 

Just me, the pit bulls and a couple cases of Pabs Blue Ribon beer in my double wide trailer.
