Inspired. Motivated. Greedy.

I can’t believe this. They’re raising bank charges again? Come on people – are you serious? Surely Standard Bank don’t think we’re so stupid that we believe this baloney about inflation and competition being the reason.

Don’t they make enough money already and are they not already ripping us off? Note how they don’t comment on the Competition Commission’s investigation. Mmmm. . .maybe they know that they’re ripping us off on such a scale that they don’t dare say anything about it.

I really am appalled. What about poorer people who can’t afford these bank costs? What of them? I’m sure the CEO’s and those living off the cream of their profits will spare a thought for those people.

Sies vir julle.

    Now they’re not even trying to hide it any more, since they stopped claiming to be “simpler, better faster”.

    Instead of making banking simpler, they’ve made it more involved, and they make no bones about it.

    It really is sad, Steve, especially since Business Report yesterday revealed that there’s definitely collusion between the big banks and there’s definitely anti-competitive behaviour going on there. It’s shocking. Absolutely shocking.

    3rd time lucky as your comment thing isn’t posting my comments!

    In England they don’t charge you for withdrawing money but they get you other ways. For example if I go over my overdraft by £2 they will charge me a shocking £30 odd for the privelige and refuse to have a stop on my account so I can’t accidently do it.

    I hate the fucking banks.

    what if we hoard our bucks under our beds, then we wouldn’t have to worry dudes!!
    Imagine! We had a neighbour who did that.

    And once everyone found out that the neighbour did it I bet they were robbed! 😉

    Ja. . . I don’t know about the under-the-bed thing. . .
    Miss M, I’ve been deleting spam willynilly so I don’t know if your comment somehow got stuck in there. I got a very snotty response from wordpress, not helpful at all so I just went nuts and deleted the whole bunch. So I’ll check the stuff I delete more carefully from now on. Sorry about that.
