Remind me of the thread of "The value of nice" from FWF:

No need to be rude to anybody.  Being rude gets you nowhere.  In this case, one can write a courteous letter to the president and cordially state one's case.  It always works for me.

That's a good point about never being rude when you fight back against bank problems. A combination of politeness and tenacity is the best approach.
