Most debit cards in the US are hooked to checking accounts - and many accounts charge up to $12 if your account drops below $2000 - and it's almost universal that companies charge something like $25 a month starting 6 months after your account becomes inactive. If it remains inactive for a couple years, they are legally required to turn it over to the state; but they don't want to do that. deke -- HTTP://GENEROUS.NET The web's best personal ads.
