  1. I DESPISE this bank.
    Terrible customer service.
    I paid off a HELOC with them a decade ago, just so I would not have to deal with their confiscatory fees and a rude loan officer.

    Good luck Ash – you’re going to need it.

  2. Pat–Check Tallahassee National Bank for a truly local, truly professional, and exceptionally well-operated institution.

  3. I have to get off my lazy duff and find another bank. Capital City Bank’s “Totally Free Checking” and “Totally Free Savings” has been charging me a monthly service fee for years. At first it was totally free.
