Not Every Bank Is As Dirty As Bank of America

The Huffington Post reports:

While many banking giants are starting to charge fees for debit card use and other once-free services on checking accounts, one regional bank is doing exactly the opposite.
Southwest, Florida-based Community Bank is offering customers $5 per month to open a checking account, Bradenton.com reports. The payment is a direct response to big banks that have recently announced a slew of fees that they’ll be charging their customers.
“We needed to do something to help consumers who are under attack from behemoth national banks charging fees that just don’t make sense,” Katie Pembles, Community Bank president told Bradenton.com in an interview. “People have a choice of where to bank, and at Community Bank, we thought paying people $5 per month rather than charging them $5 per month was a good way to set us apart.”
