I have been a customer for more than 15 years. Today I went to the bank and questioned a fee on my savings account. Apparently if you do not have account activity for a year, you are charged a $7 monthly fee. As a soon to be senior citizen, it is my goal to not withdraw money from my account. Apparently I went for more than a year without withdrawing any money. Not easy to do in this economy. You would think the bank would congratulate me on my thrifty ways. No, they charged me an inactivity fee. I asked them to refund the fee. They said they would rather lose me as a customer. I took my money out of the bank. If you are a thrifty consumer, I suggest you move to another bank too. I was able to get almost double the interest at another bank and they gave me a GPS for opening an account with more than $100,000. I wish I had switched sooner!

They're more concerned with their policies and procedures than customer service or customer loyalty.  Find another bank.
