As we have seen last year, banks are increasing fees and coming up with new fees. This WSJ article
reviews the latest fee hikes at several of the large banks. I found interesting its highlight of Citizens Bank and Bank of America for their very high monthly fees on some accounts.
Customers at Citizens Bank, a unit of Royal Bank of Scotland Group, for example, now have to pay $50 a month if they fall below minimum account balances on some money-market accounts. Meanwhile, Bank of America charges some of its banking customers a $25 fee if they dip below minimums on premium-checking accounts.
