    I remember seeing BoA mentioned in some previous threads, so I know there are some customers here who might be happy about this.

    I don't think the bitching was about online secutiry, it was the BofA f*cks it customers a number of ways.

    I think there was a slight mention to this... But yes, the complaint was more wrt over-draft fees and other such matters as I remember.

    Good news nonetheless...though from one matter which I got in email, it does still bring up question of their backup tapes and the possiblity of them getting lifted from the UPS truck. BoA was, as I remember taking some steps following that...

    As with any sort of security, it's as good as it's weakest point. If one has a world class security system at the front door, which is hard to crack...but then leaves the back door wide open; people wanting the info won't try to get through the front door. Not worth their time, when there's an easier point to poke a hole through their security...

    Damn... and here i'm thinking that they were gonna do away with their fvcked up ATM fees.


    Yeah riiiiiiite. :p


    And they say they want "to lead the way in making online banking more secure". Soooo, does that mean that all this time we were really never secure...? Scarry thought. :eek:

    What's the deal with the ATM fees? I'm asking because I don't know, and I'm thinking about becoming a BoA customer. It's the most pleasing option from what I've looked at so far.

    This is an old story, but it's worth the read.

    Here is some info from B of A on their ATMs:

    Ok, thanks.

    My bank now charges for non-bank ATM usage, so I guess I'll already be used to that. BoA has more ATMs around though, plus I hardly ever use them.

    I would bypass the fees because of direct deposit into checking, and then a percent of that transferred to savings in order to eliminate the savings fee as well. I think doing all of that gets me checking and savings accounts with no fees!
