Consume a variety of fruits such as one small apple, one-half small banana, 1 cup cranberries, one-half mango, 1 cup melon, one small peach or 12 small strawberries.

Success Stories Now Showing: I was ready to shop for a whole new wardrobe. Sure if you have a checking or savings account, that will be a pain but easy enough to accomplish. If you have a mortgage or some other loan through them, that's not going to be so easy and may not be possible for some. It can be a huge pain in the derriere.

Utility bills, mortgage, insurance, online shopping accounts, direct deposit of paychecks -- all would have to be changed if they were set up to come out of one's account automatically. I would never deal with Wells Fargo for moral reasons having nothing to do with this case.

However, I can say My mom and I had a joint account at Key Bank for a very long time. Every transaction included a hard sell. Even at the drive in! There are now 4 cars piled up behind as she was 'opening' a new and better account for me. No matter which branch I went to It was clear to me the HARD sell was their policy.

I truly feel sorry for anyone working under those high pressure situations. Of course, they were ALWAYS for my benefit and they just couldn't understand why I was insisting on the closure or removal of these additional accounts and benefits.

As usual, I was hassled and negotiated with. She told me I was making a major mistake closing such a long tenured account. It took 45 mins. I even had to wait so the Bank Mgr.

Last year I changed my bank and like you said it's a pain to get it all worked out. The best thing is to be proactive and check into your accounts from time to time. Don't rely on the bank to be looking out for you.

How many other banks are doing the same thing that Wells Fargo did but haven't gotten caught? I'm staying because it would be too big of a pain to change. Between me and my son, we have a total of 5 accounts and my direct deposit goes there. It's like an act of congress around here to get that changed, not to mention new debit cards, etc.
