Move Your Money Campaign Helps Trustco Bank

Aside from taking the media world by storm, the Move Your Money campaign is having a real-world effect.

Albany's WTEN reports that Glenville-based Trustco Bank has seen a surge in business ever since the Move Your Money campaign began calling for consumers to stop lining the pockets of the too-big-to-fail banks and to support their local community banks. Trustco saw 30 new accounts opened in one day, including one worth seven-figures.

Bank officials say that other branches of the bank are seeing similar results.
