    been using Scotia Bank card for 5 years never been charged a fee.

    Finally figured out a way to get more than $30000 Ja out at one time. My wife got her own card and we split the money into two accounts now when we go to the ATM I take out $30000 on each card.

    Good to know Booger.... I don't think I used an ATM in August, so didn't have an issue. Used it the previous May without fees. I will have to do a "test-run" in April to see if there is a fee.

    Received my bank statement and can verify that I was not charged any fees for my ATM withdrawals at times square and Scotia Bank downtown.
    If you are worried about something, do something about it. If there is nothing you can do, why worry![http://www.TickerFactory.com/]

    Some bank machines give $5000 bills so its possible to withdraw more than $30,000 at a time(if your bank allows this)

    You can get 30K several times until you reach your card's daily withdrawal limit.

    I have tried that with my Scotia debit card and been denied and my limit is unlimited. My wife's Scotia card debit/visa can withdraw 30000 at a time but we can get multiple withdrawals. It must have something to do with the /visa addition to her card.
