Good for them. I don't trust international banks and corporations. I have an account with one that I love so I would not switch, but otherwise I would.

This is an excellent idea for those patrons of big banks. My account is with a local, small town bank, and to close it would be pointless, however I support the idea for others.

I have no accounts at banks. I have received much shabby treatment from banks and they have little concern for the average account holder in my experience. I love my credit union. I get full services, lower fees, deal with an ethnically diverse staff, and I receive profit sharing. What more could I ask? :-)

Thanks for the comments, Barbara and J.O. Small institutions are not responsible for the crisis our nation continues to endure. The Bank Transfer Action is aimed at the large corporate banks that caused the recession, have ruined people's lives, and have actually profited off of all of our suffering.

A consequence to closing accounts might be that they then NEED to charge us extra because they have lost so much, however, this might also show them that they can't treat us like dirt.

Thanks for your comment, Becky. Those who have already left the banks will not experience increased fees from the banks that they have left. If anything, banks in that situation would be penalizing the customers who had stayed behind...and that would lead to more bank transfers. Let the banks suffer the way everyone else in America is suffering.
