  •  Do you mind sharing what bank? (0+ / 0-)

    I want to make sure they don't get to keep any of my family's money.

      5th 3rd.

      They used to have most of my banking.  Over the course of becoming unemployed and going back to school, I've basically erased what I had in IRAs.  They still hold my mortgage, with another 25k or so to go on that for which I keep a checking account from which my mortgage payments are automatically swept each month, but it's used for nothing else now.  Everything else runs through a credit union now.

        I haven't received that letter, but I will be closing my (admittedly very small) checking account that I have kept through them. I might even send them a letter letting them know exactly why. :-)

        •  I think I got it because I had the IRAs, which are (0+ / 0-)

          counted as 'securities', and are their own special subdivision within the company or something.  If I only had my mortgage and checking accounts there, I doubt I would have gotten it either.  But it's simpler to spam mail everyone with securities than to actually pay attention and say 'Hey, this guy's got 2k, he's obviously not going to be hit with this tax'.

        •  If you close accounts - which I believe you should (0+ / 0-)

          - you must send them a letter telling them why.

          That grossly-misleading, fear-mongering, partisan email is simply inexcusable and they need to know that thinking customers will not put up with it.
