$53.1 BILLION...Yikes!!!

Bounced-check fees are at an all-time high, according to The average fee nationwide is $27.40, up from $23.06 in 1999.

And consumers seem to be paying more of them.

Banks collected $33 billion in insufficient-fund and bounced-check fees in 2003, according to research firm Moebs $ervices in Lake Bluff, Ill. Fees are expected to reach $53.1 billion this year.

100% retired and working hard at it.
