ATM fees now are very, very, very expensive. Very expensive.

Most banks would have you believe that they earn their profits by making responsible loans at moderate interest rates, but in fact banks make much of their profits by soaking you, the sucker, with exorbitant fees and penalties for anything they can possibly dream up. They’re really quite shameless! By the way, do you know what the average ATM fee is now, for an ATM not belonging to your bank?

$4.52 (Four Dollars and Fifty Two Cents) per transaction!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

If you are some average joe taking out fifty bucks from the ATM, you can now expect to pay a fee of nearly ten percent!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Bank devils will say “oh, just don’t overdraw your account or use any ATMs outside of your network, and we won’t rob you with usurious fees, it’s very simple.” Sure, seems fair. Let’s also execute jaywalkers and blow up cars for parking violations.

Your bank is essentially a predator that preys on your bank account.
