I have never been cheated by a bank.  When we have our accounts compromised in the past the banks took action right away and I had the money back in my account in no more than a week.  I did learn from the first time our account was compromised to have more than one account so I would still have money in one that I could use while the other one was frozen and closed.  I have liked all the banks we have dealt with.

The FEES are ridiculous especially when you have overdraft protection but they charge u 30.00 each item instead of just a flat fee for using it. Or a charge to speak to a teller / monthly fee to use bank.
For about 4 years I used a prepaid debit card w/green dot... no fees so that worked well.

I think Citizens Bank is a rip off. That's why I closed my account there and went somewhere else.
