Customer approval ratings for banks increasing? I don’t think so.

Oh the beloved bedrocks of our society, the banks.  The commercials will have you thinking everything is great for their customers.  The beaming customer and the all too friendly tellers making it happen for you, but is this the reality?

The banks have found loophole after loophole in order to charge their customers fee after fee.  They have been bailed out by the government so their profits never go down.  It reminds me of the happy pre-revolutionary slave owner drinking their iced-tea on the porch enjoying the good life, while you don't see that they do this by taking advantage of their biggest asset their customers.

Banks have been taking advantage of the customers and taking a greater percentage of their deposited money for the past several years at an alarming rate, but hey everything's great right?

That's what the latest bank PR would have you believe, as they released a new survey showing that Bank Approval Ratings are steadily climbing and everyone's happy.  But let's look at the reality, let's look at how they are able to spin this non-sense and sell it to an unsuspecting public.

The truth is that the banks have been hammering their customers for so long that all of the dissatisfied ones have already jumped ship and gone to smaller community banks and credit unions, leaving only the lambs as the banks current customers.  And we all know that lambs don't complain, that is until it's too late and they have already been slaughtered.

Don't be a lamb!  Read this article from the Wall Street Journal to see how bank's are fooling us into thinking that they're doing such a great job.

    I know I hate my bank, and have moved to a smaller bank that only has branches in my state.
