    I don't think it's because of OWS, more that it's a result of people pulling their accounts from BoA because of the fees. The other banks see this, and are reconsidering as they don't want to lose customers.

    Even my small local bank has a sign out front inviting people to move their BoA accounts there to use their free debit cards.

    Wrong as usual... mostly because of negative PR and push back from customers.

    hence my putting the thread title in quotes. i don't know. i thought the article in The Street raised some interesting questions. I would have pulled my money out of BoA had I an account in that bank.

    I'm glad your local bank took advantage of that situation. It was pretty vile for an industry posting those kinds of profits.

    But ask if OWS helped. I don't know the answer.

    I know many people personally that moved their accounts when the fee was announced and not one was part of the 99% ...
    The stupid asses that are paid to gather and sit don't have an agenda that they know of ....
    listen to the people when they announced it because there was not ONE that was happy and ALL knew if they got away with it more would try.
    Myth Busted!!!

    1. it isn't a myth, it was an opinion of a writer. i thought that writer raised interesting questions.
    2. your "opinion" doesn't "bust" anything.

    thanks for playing.
