They blocked emails about the tens of thousands of protestors in NYC, after all.
Against Chase? Chase was in a position to buy up WAMU precisely because it had less risky mortgage practices than most banks.
Do they want Chase to stop taking deposits and making loans? Do they want Chase to make them a loan despite the fact they don't qualify under Chase's more rigorous lending standards? Do they want Chase to bring them some doghnuts?
"Hey David Wright, I believe the protestors probably want Chase to do things like modify people's home loans, and stop ripping poor people off with fees on their EBT cards. Oh, and maybe pay their taxes or something. I pay my taxes--maybe Chase could do that too?"
Nobody with convenient access to a good credit union should bank at Chase. Chase isn't even limiting its victims to the indebted and the poor but to customers of ample means as well.
my personal story... chase was stealing $10 a month from me & periodically sending me notices that said things like, 'if you don't respond to this you will lose debit card access to your account' and 'if you don't access this account within 18 months we will take your money' (no joke). it was an old account w/ some money left in it. the account is closed & that money is now a kayak.
Well you have two choices: Spend less money than you make or change banks.
As did I. I don't think we're the only ones.
Trivial note -- WaMu was born on my birthday (in 1889) and died on my birthday (in 2008). My birthyear is very close to the halfway point of WaMu's life.
As did I. I've only been with BECU for eight months or so, but I have yet to regret the decision in any way.
Yes, $10 fees on an empty account will do that.
And an app to upload the score from our handheld iPhones ...
