The Debit Card Fee

You can tell things are bad when banks start charging for the privilege of using a Debit card.  Recently in the good olde U.S.A.,  banks have discovered another "revenue stream" or what is normally called a fee.

Bank of America, Bank of Crooks

All banks are the same, but every once in a while you will come across one that is so greedy and so corrupt that it makes you wonder just how bad humans really can be.  This bank is called Bank of America, the largest most corrupt bank in the United States.  It continues to exist only because they have grown so large that not even the United States government can shut it down.
