Are you sure?

When Chase took over WaMu I withdrew all my funds, leaving $5 for reasons I can't remember. In the first month I was wiped out with a service charge for insufficient funds. I believe I received a couple warning letters before they sent the last one informing me my account had been closed due to no funds and lack of account activity.

However, here's a dirty little trick you can do... Walk into the bank or anywhere else you find those credit card applications with the postage paid return. Grab a stack. Get a cardboard shipping box. Throw in your old shoes, broken toaster oven and that jazzercise VHS cassette you're never going to watch etc. - The more heavier the better.

Next, close and seal the box. Then slap that self-addressed postage-paid mailer on and send it on its way, with no return address. There, you stuck it to the banks and cleared out your closest all in one step.

**Disclaimer: I've not tried this myself and therefore don't even know if the post office will send it. But it sure sounds like fun and worth looking into.

If men are good, you don't need government; if men are evil or ambivalent, you don't dare have one.
