Google Screwed Me Over?

I hate Paypal. In the early days of gambling I used Paypal to send money to casinos, and Paypal would occasionally screw me over. They held all deposits to casinos for 30 days so that if the casino went under, players wouldn't get screwed. That was nice of them.

One time I deposited $10k and a casino went under. They never gave me any money despite a number of calls and e-mails. Oh well.

I use paypal when I absolutely have to, and that's it. Google checkout came along, and I was happy about that. I like Adwords, Adsense is ok, Search is awesome, etc. I figure with their "Don't be evil" motto, I'd have nothing to worry about.

Backstory here: I had about $1,000 in a CD for a few years now.

But now whenever I call on the phone they're being a big pain in the ass about not letting me get my money out of the CD, which is just sitting there at a pathetic 0.15% interest. It was never a top priority for me so I didn't pursue it, but then I had an idea.

I wrote this letter up, asked a friend to go visit the bank, and it was finished within a day (after them being unable to help after numerous calls) -
