So just when I thought this was over, I started thinking…
“Where is my money?
I know it’s only two dollars but…it’s the point, right?
What if 20,000 people did not follow through
with finding out where their $2.50 went?
How much would the bank make?
So I called… and guess what!
He said I never cancelled the account and they took the $2.50 as an inactivity fee!
All I can say is WOW… Really!
Even though I have the paperwork I faxed to cancel the account, he said there was no record of me canceling…
but there was record of the three times I called…
I calmly said, “Please refund my $2.50, cancel my account again and give me a confirmation number.”
So this story has yet another moral…
Follow through… has this been worth my time? NO! but the lesson has been priceless!
I’m sticking with my good old debit card, that has no perks but at least has no fees either!
Electric Orange Checking Account
Also I just opened an ING Checking Account
which is awesome! They are giving me $50 after I create 3 transactions!
And they told me exactly what to do…
No fees, no minimums, and they were honest!
