(CHURCH REPORT) — Wells Fargo customers in six states who had free checking accounts will pay $7 a month starting in May.

Those customers can avoid the fee by keeping a minimum balance of $1,500 or making direct deposits of at least $500 a month. They can also get a $2 break on the fee by opting for online statements.
