But aren't they starved for cash right now? 


NO..... they took T.A.R.P. money so they aren't starving by any means. But they do want you to keep that balance steady and in good condition without paying it off quickly, that's where all banks make 75 to 80% of their profits "Lending" and having consumers run balances and maintain their accounts in good standing while they charge interest.


The rest comes from junk fee's or Misc fee's in general. That is the way all Banks make their money. It's just sad that the consumer is always the one they leave hanging out to dry when they excerise their bogus practices. Leaving everyone twisting in the wind as they say. SAD REALLY

These are borderline mafia tactics. I make a huge payment and then they squeeze in the limit so close that my next statement will overdraft on the interest charge?   Even if it's technically legal, it shocks me that they can get away with this kind of BS.   :smileymad:



After Wamu was bought out by Chase, I had some smaller problems with them, so I dumped them and went to my local credit union.  I am not going to play their games.
