I just came from the bank where I cashed a check for petty cash and change for the week. I should mention I own a business.
I'm involved in a contract with two other parties. All the funds are run through a project account and divided up from that account. The Principal
Contractors Executive Officers are the signers. I produce all of the money deposited into the account and they reimburse me my share from it each week
so I can make payroll and cover expenses. The money does not belong to them but we had to do this through one account and all the parties could not
possibly be signers or we would need huge checks just to fit the signatures. We settled on two Board Members.
Today they charged me ten dollars to cash a check written on money I deposited and that belonged to me. The size of the account at its lowest is over
one million. When I disputed it they got really nasty with me and told me this is how it is.
This is one of the Banks that got Bailout Money. Even the minimum wage Teller was a jerk about it. When I suggested they would likely loose the
account over this ten dollars, they told me they did not care. Apparently a million means nothing to these creeps. They made it clear they don't give
a damn if we pull the account. They even looked me in the eye while they lied and said all the banks charge for this. I have accounts in three banks
and have done this for over 25 years and no bank has ever charged me a dime. Lying pricks.
They would not do this if they did not know they have the Government in their hip pocket.
I'm going to arrange to have all funds moved to a Credit Union. They just lost around a 1.3 million dollar account over a ten dollar scam. I have no
doubt the Credit Union will start doing the same when they see one bank get away with it. I can't function without a bank and they know it. They have
me by the short hairs.
Do I sound pissed off?
