Is there any risk in switching my bank accounts to a freight forwarding address?

I don't technically live in the US anymore; I've sold my house, dropped my auto insurance, etc, and I need to figure out how to deal with my US bank accounts.

I have recently moved from the US to an EU country (I have dual citizenship). I have several accounts - an Amex, a Visa and a checking account - in the US. I am going to begin using a freight forwarding service for what little US post I receive and to forward online orders (e.g., from Amazon) to the my address in the EU.
These services let you use them as your main postal address for bank accounts and credit cards.
Can I expect any sort of negative reaction from my bank and CC companies to switching addresses to a freight forwarder? Is there any reason I should let them know (especially the CC I use in the EU) that I am actually domiciled in the EU? Most importantly, are there any dangers I should anticipate?
