Horrible service, unprofessional, MAJOR hassles.

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.

Only permanent US citizens are welcome.

I am a Dutch employee here in the USA during an Expat contract and have a LIB Visa; this visa allows me to work in the USA for the company I was send over as an Expat and gave me the formal paperwork that allowed me to apply for a US SSN number and to open an US bank account.

Ally bank has in his policies that only permanent residents are allowed to open a bank account with them while it is totally legal for people with an L1B visa to do so (like UMPQUA bank will do).

Therefore I would not recommend to open an account with them since they are not aware of the global changes of doing business international.

Regards,

Michiel

Worst auto leasing company ever!!!

We leased a vehicle through Ally and then decided to buy the car at the end of the lease. Instead of being able to buy it for the residual, they tack on $2,500 for absolutely no other reason but to keep you from buying the car in hopes you'll lease another car. I've purchased several vehicles we originally leased over the years and have always purchased them for the residual value which makes sense. They don't even try to justify the $2500 penalty, they just say "sorry." Stay away from this company at all costs, they're simply greedy and they absolutely lack any sense of customer service.
