E-Statement, or just spam?

I have accounts at multiple banks and one credit union. At one bank I signed up for their online statements. It works great! It’s much easier to get PDFs instead of paper mail that I’ll save, but may never look at. The credit union claims to have “E-Statements,” so I signed up (free, of course). Have I got any actual statements? No, but I’ve gotten promotional emails for their other products and services. Lame. “Hey sign up for our online statements that’s really just spam!” I don’t remember seeing any small print or check boxes asking if I was okay with spam, but apparently it was there somewhere. Or they’re just plain deceptive.

Spam, Email
