I went to Banco Popular today to open a new checking account. I chose them because they had a great big sign out front proudly proclaiming "Totally FREE Checking!" Foolish me, I believed them, and waited over an hour to speak to a sales rep. And she tells me that unless I make at least five transactions a month, there will be a five dollar service charge. Is it just me, or is that not "Totally FREE Checking?"
I don't like banks.
