Asshole American banks
When I was a customer at Washington Mutual, I discovered that if I made out a check to someone, and they came to WaMu to cash it, they would be charged $5 per check. "Just because". As quickly as I could, about 2 months later I became a non-customer because of this.
And of course, Washington Mutual famously went under as one of the big American bank failures. I didn't shed a tear.
