Fifth Third Bank advertises itself as "The Only Bank You'll Ever Need". This couldn't be further from the truth. I have banked with Fifth Third for almost 15 years. We opened our accounts with this bank when we refinanced our home. We were told we would get a better interest rate if we opened a checking account and had the payment automatically deducted each month,

I liked the bank for the first 10 years, however, the past 5 have been horrible. I am currently in the process of researching new banks so I can leave this bank. Fifth Third Bank does nothing but nickel and dime, or should I say dollar you to death? They have a new policy regarding deposits so that if a debit arrives even a minute before your deposit, even if it is on the same day you are hit with a $33 charge for each item. It use to be as long as the deposit arrived anytime that day the check would not bounce.

I feel that Fifth Third is in business to get as much money out of their customers in anyway they can. The amount of bank fees charged by this bank is out of control. My son is being charged $1 for every withdrawal he makes from his savings account. I have had enough of these ridiculous fees and wanted to warn others about this bank.
