Ally Seemingly Unable To Calculate & Itemize Cd Interest Earnings Correctly

Had a pair of concurrent two-year raise-your-rate cd's at the same apy on which ally was calculating different daily interest earnings. In attempting to sort this out, was given the runaround, including by level 2 cs, told not to worry about the "robo-figures" shown on the summary pages, and assured that my total earned interest at maturity would be calculated correctly.

Now that these cd's have both matured, at my instruction i had the final balances with interest deposited into an existing money market account. At this point, neither the cd summary pages nor the one for the money market itemize how much interest i earned in total from the cd's over the two years. Nor do the paper statements i received at cd maturity show anything about total earned interest. I'm left to run the numbers myself, spotty as they are, try to sort out any errors, and in the meantime have requested that ally mail me another paper statement explicitly listing total earned interest.

Cs agreed to do this only after multiple phone calls and a fair bit of obvious disgust and annoyance in the voice of the most recent cd rep. Incredible. We're talking about several thousand dollars worth of earned interest on these two cd's, and ally apparently doesn't think it important to break out total earned interest on the accounts. What are they trying to hide? If we, the customer, didn't care about interest we'd just put our money under the mattress where we can keep an eye on it at all times. Buyer beware - ally makes a guessing game out of something that should be entirely cut and dry - nay, something they should be heralding in neon lights at every turn - our earnings.

Ally Lies To Credit Bureaus

We bought a new $40000 car and the dealer had the car financed through ally. Five months later a drunk hit our car and totaled it. The drunks insurance paid for most of the amount owing against the car. My gap insurance paid the rest. Ally was notified and knew they would be paid. The entire amount for the car was paid but it took three months for the insurance companies to work it out. Ally was paid in full. When i went to buy a home i found ally had reported to the credit bureaus we were 90 days late. I have disputed and ally continues to lie. We are seeing ally for damages. Stay away from Ally.

Very Little To Complain About

I love Ally, mostly for it's interest rates and lack of any atm fees anywhere. My only smallish gripe is that to change my wife's name on the account or add someone to a joint account, ally still requires faxing or mailing in a bunch of documents. Who has a fax anymore?
