Of course, the way this thing is written, with the financial institutions becfoming agents of the government, can't they just cut us off financially?
Seriously, I know a lot of people in the past 6 months that have their checking accounts bounce when the money was there. It's become so frequent I
swear I am starting to think it is some sort of test. The most frequent Bank I'm seeing it at is BofA (BAC). It's really been bothering me that the
one Bank that is suppossedly sound is the one pulling this.
I know it's only anecdotal, but seriously, I've seen it happen to my clients (the company I am employed at is the one the bounced checks are being
written to). Everytime, the client comes in afterwards with a statement from the bank proving it was not their fault the check bounced - the money was
there. They even have the gall to tell the account holder to tell me to just redeposit the check. I think not! I don't even get bounced checks back
in the mail for 3 weeks now, I'll be darned if I'm going to wait that long to get the bounce on my side cleared up. If the money is there I have to
insist they withdraw it and bring it to me immediately to cover the check.
So, with these new developments on top of what I've already been dealing with.....that particular part of the draft just really struck me.
