What this should teach us all is to actually READ the disclosures of the bank and choose the bank we use VERY carefully.
Maybe prompting general public to look into their banks charges. Take up one of the many credit cards that offer low interest rates and just pay it off each month. Start clearing out your debt, one card at a time and stop paying banks for nothing.

Wells Fargo is sleazy for this and other practices. However, one fact is clear. If people did not spend money that they do not have they would not be able to overdraw their accounts. Simple. Get a grip on your finances people.
These are the same people who will run up thousands of dollars in charges and walk away from them. They will also take out a loan that they can never afford and walk away from the house, debt and tax free. Who do you think pays for these deadbeats? Right, any of us who actually pay our debts and pay our taxes. No good deed goes unpunished.
