BTW, not to disparage USABancshares, because there are a lot of things which are cool about the bank, but it's terribly unprofitable. I definitely think they are going to either go under or sell their accounts to another bank before too long.

This is something I've been worrying about lately. I have an account with Compubank, which is perhaps not as generous as USABancshares, but does do ATM reimbursement and decent interest rates. They are still privately held, and AFAIK have never released any information about when they expect to achieve profitability.

What do other people think? Are you worrying about your OLB folding or being swallowed up? Obviously, they're all insured, so you wouldn't lose your money, but it would be a hassle to find a new bank and start up an account there.

For those of us who already have accounts, I suppose there's not much we can do anyway. But if anyone out there is considering opening a new OLB account, I would seriously recommend they consider the bank's ability to survive a potential shakeout.
