I realised as soon as I was notified regarding the debit card substution that it was another plot to line the pockets of BofA, since there are financial penalties for making mistakes with debit cards and would definitely be harmful to people with no bank accounts-in other words, people who can least afford it. I immediately signed up for direct deposit as I didn’t want BofA to have my money for one minute more than was absolutely necessary, but they still have it for at least 24 hours for “processing”. I was so incensed at the blatant and shameless rip-off that this scheme represented that I called Representative Jerry McNerney’s office and e-mailed Senators Barbara Boxer and Diane Feinstein to complain although this doesn’t harm me as much as it would the people in dire straits (I am currently on unemployment but have no dependents). Let’s see whether or not the California legislature addresses this issue-the Democrats might but the Republicans sure won’t.
