Thanks, PNC.

Dear Sam,

We noticed you have less than $0 in your account. Now you have $30 less.

Thanks,
PNC Bank

    I just love those. Sometimes if you make up an excuse they’ll reverse it a couple of times a year. My friend is at BofA, and you’d think they’d be the least likely to do it, but they’d do a couple a year for him even without an excuse.

      Yeah, I think I went to PNC on the verge of tears after being hit with like 3 of those fees at once and they waived one. They gave me a hard time saying that they’re not supposed to do it and that they might get fired for it (which I didn’t buy)… but they gave it to me anyway.

        Yeah, I don’t buy that “shouldn’t/can’t” do it story anymore. I’ve seen low-level, front-line people credit my account with stuff in too many businesses now, including cases where I just had to go find a more sympathetic person to talk to. Certainly even where those people were hesitant to do it, their managers would do it without question.

    Banks suck

    I keep most of my cash with a credit union, since both of the banks I had accounts with decided to start charging me
    – for having and account, every month
    – for using the ATM, even if all I did was check my balance
    – for doing any sort of transaction at the counter

    … to the point that I lost patience before I lost my money, and closed one account, and just neglected to renew the other. Apparently, the other tells me I can pay them $8.19 if I want to know what my balance is. But, whatever. I care not.
