In recent years, bank charges have continued to increase. From October 1, banks will have to inform their customers about these charges.
Ten years ago, withdrawing money from the ATM was free. Today, this simple gesture can be expensive. Withdrawing money at a bank other than his own pays off in most establishments to the chagrin of customers. “It’s a scam”, a woman protests.
Only 10% of banks do not charge anything and there are fewer and fewer of them. Those who charge do so more and more quickly, from the third or fourth withdrawal per month in most banks. The Postal Bank charges 65 euro cents, HSBC, Société Générale and BNP Paribas, one euro. By the way, the banks are making a profit, each withdrawal costs him 57 cents. In five years, these bank charges have increased by 25%. As for the banks, we prefer to insist on a positive point: account maintenance fees have not increased this year, a first for five years.
