We all have been warned that new fees were to come about, but when I checked my monthly statement (paper), I was surprised to see a fee that I've never seen before. There was a $3.00 charge for " Check Image Service Fee".
They still have to keep an image on file regardless.
I never saw any notice of this possible charge on past statements. So, I called and inquired. I was told notice was given back in September & October. Well, bottom line, they gave me a credit for the $3 and I had them stop sending a photo image of any checks with future statements so this charge will not pop up again. I only wrote one check last month. Most were on line payments.
FYI, I've always kept enough on deposit to avoid monthly fees.
Review you statements!

Be careful, BofA may start charging you a fee for receipt of "paper" monthly statements. Some banks and credit unions have already started this additional fee.
