From an Unfair, Deceptive, or Abusive Acts or Practices perspective, the account should not be titled "free" checking.
Free Checking With the Options That Are Not Free
We are revising our deposit accounts and one account will be titled Free Checking. This product will have e-statements as the default at no charge. Since e-statements are the default, we will charge $3.95 for a paper statement. Is this a concern relative to Unfair, Deceptive, or Abusive Acts or Practices?
