Well, call me crazy, but I think paying $2 every time you go to the ATM is absolutely stupid, not to mention $35/yr for the "privilege" of having a debit card. Those are all things that are available for free from your local bank, which is exactly where I keep my poker bankroll; besides, I don't want to risk going through another Neteller
-like fiasko where I had several hundred dollars tied up for almost a year, not really knowing if I was ever going to see them again. . . .

Sure, $8 is much better than $35, but I still don't think I should have to pay that much just to move a little money from one account to the next.
ePassporte's fees are high even compared to "full-service" brick & mortar banks, and they are astronomical compared to "online-only" banks -- not to mention that you don't receive any interest on your balances. For the record, here's a link to all the fees for a personal account, on ePassporte's website: [[old link~tb]
