Great information, Jim!
I actually did switch to a local credit union after this and have been much happier (and far less broke) with it.
It does my heart good to hear about banks being fined. They should understand. It’s their bread and butter. Or maybe it’s just the butter, but in any case, what goes around comes around.
I know banking used to be different. I still remember my first bank ( eventually absorbed by WELLS, which is how I ended up there).
It was a great local bank who cared about its people. But that doesn’t exist anymore.
Glad you got out of the game.
I don’t know about other places, but here, the front line employees in the bank don’t even make a living wage. I guess that’s pretty common these days, but it’s so wrong.
