No more auto-debits for me. When I called Wells Fargo this week to stop auto-debits, the woman on the phone said it would take 10 days to process the request. When I asked her if they would still take one since the mortgage was paid off through a refinance, she couldn't guarantee that they still wouldn't withdraw another payment.

At one time auto-debits were good.

But in this day and age, with automatic bill pay from your checking account, there is no reason to use auto-debit. With bill pay, YOU have control. You push the money to them on your schedule and you can stop it in an instant.
