not a prob. stick chewed gum into the card reader of any ATM charging $3.

Joe V.

I just withdrew from an atm that charged me for a huge $42 fee, which I did not see a written note at all on fees. Is there a law against this?

People gripe that they should never have to pay a fee to get to their "own money". When did the money that is sitting in all the ATM machines across the country become theirs? Didn't someone else put THEIR money in that ATM, pay for that machine with THEIR money, pay a couple hundred bucks to an armored car company out of THEIR money, and pay for the processing fees and insurance costs out of THEIR money?

But suddenly when you are short on cash the money in the nearest ATM suddenly becomes YOUR money, as if the rest of society is supposed to follow you around with a box of money for free just in case you forgot to bring YOUR money with you.

If you want to have YOUR money available for no charge whenever you want it, just stuff it in your mattress and drag it around with you so you have it when you need it. Maybe then you will be willing to pay a couple bucks for someone else to have a box full of cash sitting their just waiting for you when you need some.

Have fun dragging your mattress around after you finish sticking gum in all the ATM machines.
