Bad - They Will Steal Your Money (I'm So Sorry I Can't Find That Username And Password In My System ...)

Ally will steal your money. They are sugary sweet on the phone 24/7. Cd matured? Want your money? They can't find your username. They're so sorry that's not the password they have on file. Sugary sweet 24/7 asking personal question after personal question, they'll keep asking and no amount of information is enough to satisfy them that you really are you. And no branch to go to in person (he he he). Hey, this isn't like some ally trick ("computer glitch", "just a little more documentation for you to notarize and mail, again", "just a few more personal questions", "someone will call you back",

"soon", "really", ha ha ha, you putz - but they are so so sugary sweet as they tell you that they are keeping your money, they're not giving your money back to you, they are keeping your money for themselves and they have hundreds and hundreds of lines to tell you about "bank security" and they "really want to protect your identity and your account" and that's why they won't give you your money back, not until you snail mail more notarized documents, not until you answer even more nosey personal questions (and if this goes on for 1/2 an hour or so, then "someone's going to call you back"). But no one calls you back.

Then you get (24/7!!! ) sugary sweet customer service rep's repeating the same lines, same questions, same demands, same lies same lies same lies. With cd's they delay long enough that the cd automatically re-news, then there are penalties to pay, plus more notarized snail mail to notarize and snail mail (and if its not certified mail then they're "so sorry" but they never got that, and if it is certified, then you just lost that fraction of a percent in interest higher than your local bank, then they still need more... )

don't open an ally account. It's not worth it for an extra few interest rate percentage points "promised". It's absolutely not worth it for a few fractions of a percent m

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?
