    Believe me, I work with these transactions every day, and I'm quite familiar with how it happens. I can assure you with complete certainty that this is how it happens. You're welcome to call your bank and ask them, if you'd like.

    I don't know about other banks but my bank has some sort of overdraft protection for the debit card. They started it sometime last year. If you overdraw they pay and penalize you. Thankfully, I haven't found out the details from first hand experience. I do think this is some sort of limit on the overdraw amount.

    With that said I find it's usually safe to follow the rule that if a DUmmie is typing words it is probably lying.

    You are still riding? Good for you. I gave up my bike a few years ago. Do you lurk on CF or the other forum all the bitches went to? I don't...there is only so much stupidity I can take from those libs.

    Yep. Not as much as I used to, but I still get away sometimes. being a single dad raising what was a troubled teenaged girl has taken up alot of my time. I check Cf sometimes but it is dead.
