Things That Make You Say WTF

while some may argue that a 10 basis point is not a significant increase, that’s not the point.

First of all, this was the result of a classic shell game (moving a decrease over to increase something else) and second of all, once a fee gets its foot in the door there’s only one direction for it to go. On top of that, this is just one more “small” increase atop a host of other “small” increases that have been passed on to the consumer and can make the costs of borrowing ridiculously unaffordable. Every huge pile of crap starts with one fee increase.
