I've seen this mentioned by others (well, one other responder), but wouldn't it be a case of outright fraud? Not saying you're wrong, b/c g-d knows I'm sure these banks will always do what they can to squeeze as much $$ out of us as possible. But I would think this would be a relatively easy thing to show, and would quickly result in law suits or even a class action.

Any class action lawyers reading this?
