The banking giant is attracting criticism once again, with a plan to make checking accounts a whole lot more expensive
Bank of America is working on "sweeping changes" that would levy new fees on customers with checking accounts, The Wall Street Journal reports. Proposed fees, ranging from $6 to $25 a month, could only be waived if customers meet certain requirements that favor the bank — by keeping a minimum balance, taking out a mortgage, or switching to online banking. The report comes months after Bank of America withdrew a proposed $5 monthly fee for using debit cards, after suffering a backlash from customers and lawmakers alike. Unsurprisingly, the new fee plan is already being slammed: Sen. Richard Durbin (D-Ill.) calls it "a challenge that cannot go unanswered." Is the bank's scheme outrageous?

BOA, Facebook, it's all the same. If you haven't caught on yet and are still dumb enough to participate, you deserve whatever you get; sore ass and all.

Why ANYONE would want to do any business with BofA is beyond me. I understand most people need a checking account to pay their bills, but there are soooo many better alternatives than Bank of America. It's amazing to me that they are still in business.

Keep a very minimum in the bank or credit union just to pay your bills. Any other cash should be used to buy as much PMs, water, food and ammo as you can get. Do it now before it's too late.
Wells Fargo just sent me a bill. The "Free Chcecking" account I had is now going to be $18 per month. I am taking all of my $4 Out of Wells Fargo. Greedy Banking Bastards.
