I have an account with Bank Leumi in Israel. I'm not using it; the account has a minimum sum in NIS which is dwindling due to maintenance fees. So, what's going to happen when it reaches zero? There are three options:
- My account is cancelled by bank.
- My account keeps accumulating maintenance fees that become a debt.
- Fees stop but account is not cancelled. (Highly unlikely.)
Different countries use different approaches here. Which one does Israel use?
P.S. Of course, I tried asking the bank itself. Communicating with them from abroad proved fruitless - they keep telling me to visit the exact office I opened the account in.
