I recently opened an account with ally bank and closed it less than 2 weeks later. I called them because i noticed my birthdate in my account profile was inputted wrong and needed to be corrected. I had to answer about 4 security questions and provide her with all the necessary account info needed (no big deal). But at the end she says i need to fax them a copy of my drivers license even though i gave them all my info that was needed? They said they will call my cell 2 business days after they recieve the faxed copy.
That's 5 days from now!!? Not only that, but the service rep was giggling on the other end! I found this bank to be unprofessional. If changing something so simple is such a pain, can you imagine what would happen of you had a real issue?? Do not open an account with these people. And if you have one aleeady i suggest you pull out. Open an account with a bank that has a physical branch you can deal with.
Just opened a checking account and now i don't have to worry about atm fees that cost me tons with a big bank checking account.
I deposited a check from BOA and was warned by the Ally mobile deposit site that the funds would not be available for 3 days. With that information I turned around and wrote a check for the deposited amount and mailed it off. Those checks have since been cashed and paid but Ally still has a hold on my original deposit 4 days after depositing and have notified me those funds will not be available another 4 days. Because of this they have put a hold on the entire check value plus another $3500.
So let me get this straight, they have my money but I can't use it or the rest of my money because why??????
I would not recommend that anyone has multiple accounts with them so they have the ability to basically freeze ALL "your" money.
