My wells Fargo savings account earns less than .5 percent. Do you see why people are upset with corporate banking?

Your wealth is meaningless if you horde it. Don’t you remember ECON 101?
What responsibility do you feel investment bankers who sold overvalued investment have?
Dear Sir, I, unlike so many others, remember quite well the days before "free checking", and as I recall, they were quite a bit higher than the few dollars a month that your institution is now charging for debit card use associated with my heretofore free checking account. Likewise, I understand the necessity of said charges, since our good friends and unwanted caretakers in Washington have decided that there must needs be a limit to what banks can charge merchants for card processing, even though the costs of those processing fees were being folded in to the sticker prices of the goods they purvey. I also understand that, regardless of what others may think, a bank is first and foremost a business, and the sole purpose of a business is to make money (also known as profit.) While it may not directly benefit me to continue paying bank fees, I enjoy the security your institution provides me, and the company for whom I work requires a direct deposit. If I were truly concerned about the $36 or so I'll pay Wells Fargo this year for banking services and deposit security, I still have the option to keep the money I earn in a sock, a jar, a mattress, or a credit union. Many Thanks to you and your organization, Jonathan Sennett
I am a mediator and I have mediated many foreclosure cases in the state of Florida - something is very wrong - I used to be a mortgage processor in the 1970's. How could banks make the loans they made and then sell them and then take money from the USA and now foreclose on people who should not have been given loans in the first place - banks created the problems America faces today and BANKERS need to step up and figure out a fix that doesn't require more of the people's tax money to do it. I have a suggestion - short sell houses to all folks being foreclosed upon this way no one is homeless!
Time to think of the rest of us John. Both my son and my Nephew are underemployed for the year or so. They have college degrees and are good students and could be successful career people if there were job opportunities. Now they are in limbo, a lost career generation. Time to give something back John. Out tax $ bailed out your industry and has been misappropriated to excessive salaries for the upper corporate level. But you must know this. Time to give back John.

Eddie! Thanksgiving is just around the corner, and I want to send you an OccuPie! Please send a SASE to Liberty Memorial, Kansas City, MO (the site for Occupy Kansas City), and I will gladly send you a pie full of Kansas City love (which means barbeque)! By the way, have you ever thought of getting Citigroup to BUY Kansas City? You could rename it Kansas Citigroup. How rad would that be, Eddiebaby? Your new friend, Andrew
Nice Going Joe. | 2
Joe, I hope your saving for your retirement. I hope you never get sick, or lose your job. I hope you can sleep at night, and l hope you have no conscience. I am glad l am not you. Toodles.
Please justify your fees and your lending practices, you have yet to do so. If you just responded people would listen to what you have to say and if it's reasonable for your billion dollar profits from this Q3 and everyone else suffering due to your practices. Deregulation did this country and world in. My father, retired, US ARMY, Lt. Col. General who served this country, went to work for Lockheed Martin for years, laid off, couldn't find work, went to deliver bread, worked for Circuit CIty - one of top sales people, laid off, retired early, takes a loss on his SS, and now they are unable to refinance a house they almost paid cash for. Thank you

I had nearly $1500 stolen by you and sears in a cheap bit of trickery singing up for a credit card to rec' a discount on sears washer dryer purchase ..I wonder how many sears customers you stoje money from... Both are acts of disgrace...G. Baker
I recently graduated from my medical residency and was promptly greeted by a collection letter due to your citiassist branch selling my loan to a collection agency stating that I had missed 3 months payments and was not reachable. I was in residency and should have been in forbearance for the 4 years of residency and thus making no loans. Your company ruined my credit at a time of my life where I am in a great deal of debt but simultaneously with new income and wanting to buy a home, car, support a family. What can you do to help me?
Hi Susan: I'm happy that you have a good job, I wish I had something I could count on too. I have a home loan with WF and my house has lost so much in value that if I could sell it, I would lose over half of my investment. I wouldn't be too worried about that except that I am 56 years old and employers wouldn't dream of hiring someone that old. If you ever get into a situation where you need a job at an older age, you'll see what I mean...it's pretty ugly. That money, invested in my house, was a nice chunk of my retirement that has just disintegrated. Anyway, do your best and hang on to your job, it looks like things are going to get tougher than the 2008-2009 Great Recession in the coming future.
Some suggestions | 1
Dear Jamie, As you Chairman of the Board and Chief Executive Officer of JPMorgan Chase, I surmise that it is you who is ultimately responsible for the company's performance and direction. I'd love to sit down and discuss that direction with you over a fine glass of wine, or perhaps a lovely single malt scotch...I can have either one, depending on my mood. And of course, I'd treat, as I would be extending the invitation. However, due to the abysmal performance of my 401K this year (I made better choices in the market in my ownpersonal portfolio and I am not blessed with the many years of experience the sage directors of said funds have) I am somewhat constrained in funds, and cannot ask you to join me. Thus, I am obliged to write this note. I noticed you have well over 5000 off share tax shelters so that you and your company can avoid paying any income taxes. I also noticed you don't pay your employees terribly much. Of course, from what I can see, you enjoy a very handsome compensation package - a right, you might say, extended to a person in charge of such a large company. However, it might behoove you to invest a little bit in the good old US of A by avoiding such strategies. After all, if your limo drives over a pothole, isn't rather jarring? Wouldn't you prefer a nice, smooth ride to the office? Isn't the sight of all those scruffy, homeless people rather depressing? And what about your driver? Wouldn't it be useful if he was sufficiently well educated that you and he could have a pretty neat conversation? Just think of how a little tax money can brighten your day! There are more suggestions. You might, perhaps, consider a raise to your employees, instead of yourself this year. After all, they are the ones doing the work, aren't they? They'd look a lot nicer once they got enough money to buy some nice clothing. And that tax revenue would help the state out. And the city. And so on and so on. Who knows? The raise might actually cover the ever-increasing costs to get to and from work! Not to mention groceries, college tuitions, and all sorts of other needless frippery they seem to indulge themselves with. After all, why educate them anyway? College is SUCH a waste. It makes them THINK! Oh no! They musn't EVER do that!! They might wake up and realize they are getting mistreated and actually say something about it. That would be too ugly for words. You guys used to actually do some good - why can't you be like the old robber barons, like your namesake, JP Morgan? At least he left a nice library. What are you going leave behind? Yep. That's what I thought. Sad, isn't it?

hello, im just one hard working, tax paying marine iraq veteran in the sea of people you rip off daily, the 99%. i dont mind at all that your mega rich, thats good for you. the way you and the institution you run obtain your money by committing fraud, and robing the american people blind is not ok, a lot of people are waking up, they are feeling the pain, they are poor. the rest of your fellow americans are trying hard to make ends meet but its getting harder and some poor soles are homeless, hungry, some are very sick and cant even get proper medical attention, seriously! please you have taken enough, stop hurting the people.

Have you ever thought much about tomatoes? I mean, come the revolution, one million digital dollars and three tomatoes will buy you a hamburger. I'm sure you can come up with the million, but how about the tomatoes? Maybe it's time for you to learn something valuable -- like gardening -- so when the Wall Street traders completely get their way, and they crash the entire world economy, you'll still have some way to eat. I could be your friend. I could teach you tomato growing by mail. I know for a fact it would also work with zucchini and corn and other veggies too. How about it? You don’t seem to do anything of value to human civilization as it is. This might be just the ticket. Tomatoes.
Hello Joe | 0
Hey Joe, I'm a full-time student of Political Science and Public Policy at Umass Boston as well as an employee at both a CVS as well as a investment management firm. I work forty hours a week because I have too. I would like to say I put my best effort into school but because of my obligation to work so much to pay all of my bills I really must pick and choose what work I get done. I have a full scholarship so it's not as if I don't do well it's just obvious that I could benefit much more if I only had to focus on my studies. Given the tumultuous outlook of our future I believe it is paramount to our success as a nation to provide my generation with as much education as possible. As a Bank of America customer I would like my bank to be an ethical firm that is aware of the social contract. The corporation has the rights of a free persons and should accept the responsibility that a person of power has. You did not get where you are on your own and it's important to acknowledge that. I believe I will be closing my account at your company sometime next week. Frankly Joe it's because of the new fees your implementing, I simply can't afford them. I could list a hundred reason why I shouldn't stick with BoA but to be honest it wasn't until this fee to access my hard earned money did I truly feel the need to drop the company. I know you make more than most people and good for you, but you make way too much more than most people. Being President at a company is a tough job but I do not believe it deserving of a pay more than 100 times your bank tellers. Share the wealth because you care about our future, pay taxes because we all have to! Thanks Joe I know you probably won't read this but thanks anyway. The American political awakening is upon us, just wait! Take Care Joe, Harley M. T. Cox
Dear Sir, Greetings, Sir, and salutations! I hope this finds you well and rolling in money(not mine, since i bank with Wells Fargo.) I wanted to be sure to throw at least one bright message your way, so here it is: I made money today for my family by getting up and going to work. I would imagine that you did the same; I don't believe that's true for any of the rank, evil asshats that are camping out and not working on the streets of so many of our cities, saying that they want a fair shake. I support what you do,and I hope that you are well compensated for the WORK that you do. So many people in this once-great country seem to be laboring under the misapprehension that you can see results from not working and being a worthless bag of doo-doo that are in someway commensurate with the rewards of ACTUAL WORK, not an "international Business degree." PLease,sir, keep doing what you do. A nation is relying on you (those of us with jobs and something resembling traditional American values--work hard for your wage, be frugal, take care of your own, etc) to keep us afloat. God Bless you, Sir. Thanks Jonathan Thomas Sennett I included my full name, so if the communist a-holes in charge of this can come find me(and my weapons.)

Dear Ms. Taylor, I want to thank you for your dedicated service to Citigroup. You have shown me what capitalism is all about. I cannot blame you for your actions of greed because you thought you were pursuing the American dream like every other hard working American. As a dedicated banker for the company, you have followed orders and have made as much money as possible for the bank. As a human being I ask you to step aside being a business person and ask yourself: Are your daily actions ethical. Please be a human being with empathy. Sincerely, Bonnie Costa

Hi Gary, I am 'breaking up' with you on November 5, 2011. After 20 years of being in a relationship with you I sense that you just don't love me anymore. Things were great for a long time. You loaned money to me and I paid it back. So simple and sweet. Now I feel that you have betrayed me with a monthly debit card charge to ACCESS MY OWN MONEY!!! Anyway, I am being courted by a community bank. Maybe things wont be much better but I am going to give it a try. Will you miss me when I am gone?

I guess I forgot how much more work you all at the top do. Why, you must be working 100,000 hours a month to be making so much more than your bank tellers!!

Hi Edward O'Queef. Sup? My name is Michelle. I have been a big huge super supporter of all you does. I have a cow suit on cuz I be workin' at Chic Fil A. How does I look sweetie? I'll sext you later honeyboo.
I am closing all My Chase Accounts. I have been a customer since Chase took over Bank1, and my credit score is 811. You did not want to loan me money for a new car unless I emptied my bank account for a down payment, but the credit union was happy to help me, with a better interest rate, right over the phone. That was a year ago. Three months ago you started charging me $12.00 a month to have my checking account with you. I take that as you don't need my business anymore. The Credit Union will have all my business now. Thanks I am the 99%
