JP Morgan Chase Is Officially Pissed Off About This Site


I guess this means we have the attention of Chase Bank. I just received an email from them which I guess was supposed to scare me. Instead, I printed it out and hung it on my wall above my computer. I’m looking for a suitable frame now.

Here, for all to see, is the officially response from JP Morgan Chase Manhattan Bank of New York (or whatever the hell they’re calling themselves these days) about this site:

JPMorgan Chase & Co.

Now, I’m not sure exactly how stupid one would have to be to confuse this site, with that of the official Chase Bank site. I haven’t artfully photoshopped their logo, or done anything else to make anyone think this site is in anyway endorsed by Chase Bank. Quite the opposite, starting with the name, and extending through every ounce of content on this site, we make it abundantly clear that Chase Bank Sucks! That’s the whole point of this site. If Chase Bank wasn’t so morally corrupt, greedy and out of touch with their customers there would be no need for this site. But there is, and they don’t scare me so the site stays.

To think that with all the bailouts and troubles in the banking industry that this little site has pissed them off enough to send me a C&D brings me a sense of pride. You would think they had more important things to do, but it just goes to show the power of the internet to shine a light on all the dark practices of a company like shine a light on all the dark practices of a company like Chase Bank.
