We have tried very hard over the last year to keep costs down, and as a result Our charges will be abolished for accounts in credit. For accounts in debit there will be a charge of $10.00 per month. In addition debit balances must be reduced by at least 10% of the outstanding amount per month, otherwise there will be an extra penalty charge of $15.00. Your account balance as at 03/22/2001 was $250.16 Credit. As your account is in credit there will be no Banking Charge for this month. Yours, Frank Stapleton (Senior Banking Manager)
