Never Ever Link Payment to Someone to Your Bank Account

This is why: A half a million people had their bank accounts overdrawn by Nationstar Mortgage. Those fuckwads took out months' worth of payments in one go.

Their response was basicly "oops, computer error, our bad, sorry for the inconvenience."

Just what we all need in these difficult times, another reason to hate bankers.

Unfortunately if you write them a check they claim they have permission to run it electronically, so it's the same damned thing -- they just withdraw whatever they want from your bank account regardless of what's actually written on the damned check.

Yeah, that's fraud, and your bank will reverse the charges, but. Still. It's a royal PITA when it happens.
