“Banks have made a fortune off me. I had an account with a major U.S. bank for 18 years. I paid an $8 service charge every month. I paid to have my checks returned. I paid to use ATMs. Through my own stupidity, I paid lots of overdraft fees. As my money skills improved, the overdraft fees vanished, but the other fees — and lousy service — remained. I finally got fed up. Last year, I switched my account to a local credit union.”
