Banking sector is legally required to be transparent. Specifically you should have received an "IMPORTANT DISCLOSURES" with information on them all like this:


Telecom I completely agree though. Some of the fake fees they charge (that are worded to look like taxes/regulatory) is almost criminal.

That's not transparency. That is disclosing their prices in small print.

I'm talking about removing hidden fees being passed around behind closed doors.

Fees like what visa will charge your merchant and kick back to your bank.

What other fees am I paying for indirectly without my knowledge? If I could see them maybe I could shop around for a bank that doesn't shaft merchants leading to a healthier economy and more jobs, you know, actual trickle down.
