Evidently, ING Direct performs periodic account reviews and will close accounts from customers who may abuse their overdraft protection based on credit reports. Nick admitted he had been “living in” the $1,000 overdraft protection (more like a cash advance). That could have triggered the account review.
Be careful with ing. They went on a rampage closing TONS of accounts of unwitting customers, causing many others to pull their money. The decision was not approved by the appropriate people however, and they tried to salvage what they could.
Fortunatley I have yet to had any problems with ING. Thank God. With the recent banking issues going on that is.
I just keep my emergency money in there. Stashing couple of bucks here and there in it.
I also have a couple of other savings accounts there just to save some money, or put some back, for expected expenses. Such as, car insurance, income taxes, and travel expenses. And, yes, my 3-6 months of expense fund is in there too.
The primary reason I opened accounts there was basically for the higher returns I would receive compared to the tradional bank. I still utilize the traditional bank on a daily basis to receive my paycheck and to pay bills..
I would be interested to hear from those that have had their accounts closed by ING (or, any other on-line bank for that matter). I would like to hear what the reasons were and what you did as a result of them closing the accounts..

Not all the creditors/debt collectors agree to trim down the outstanding balances, interests, and fees payable by the consumer.
Consumers working with the debt relief companies can still be sued by the creditors/collection agencies.
Debt relief services may have a diminishing effect on the creditworthiness of the consumer. The total outstanding balance may increase as the additional fees get accrued.
The overall amount saved by the consumer through the debt relief services is considered as taxable income by the IRS.
