additional information on my earlier post/review

I spoke with a woman purportedly with upper management named Jill. she told me that while she agreed with my argument, and had the authority to allow my account to remain open, she chose not to. she unveiled to me that several REG E claims that were on my account were not actual factual and had never been made, but they had never been removed and because of those i was found to have made "too many " claims. I asked what someone should do in each and every case where someone illegally hacks into an account, and she said i handled it just as the bank had instructed and now the bank was shutting my account as a result. she said the bank no longer found me to be a "valuable customer" and that I should go find another bank. Nice customer service. This would have been so much easier for them if they had used a little, just a little common sense. My guess is, judging by comments here and elsewhere, they will all be out of a job there by the end of 2014.

Anyway, I have $1000 in my account and they say they will send me a check...what do you want to bet I never see a penny of it?

Best Banking Experience I've had

My wife and I have a checking and savings account with Ally Bank and we LOVE It!!! Interest Rates are incredible customer service is top notch and unlike other banks such as Bank of America who we left fees are not an issue for things like needing more checks. I highly recommend Ally and their website and phone app is much better than that of Bank of America as well. People in the past I noticed have had negative reviews but it seems like most of their issues were self-inflicted. They never have done us wrong and they seem to being getting better with time even, so take that for what it's worth.

Poor service

It takes too long to complete transactions. It took too long to credit my checks that I deposited with them and worst of all it is taking too long to get my money back. The customer service is very poor. I asked to close my account and have the check sent right away and I opted for the overnight Fedex. It was three business days later and I called asking where is the check, I was told that it was sent regular mail and it would be 7 to 10 business days before I would receive it. I then insisted on getting my money sooner as I needed it yesterday! Some customer service persons said I could have the original check cancelled and have another one Fedex to me but it still would take approx. 5 business days. I told them why is Ally Bank holding me up? I then asked for a Manager and this after 10 minutes holding on the phone. He stated that he was sorry but Ally Bank could not even cancel my check and that I would have to wait the 7-10 days to get my money. Needless to say this nothing short of robbery and I definitely will recommend everyone not open any account with these people. Oh, I was told by the manager that his superiors made the decision not to cancel the original check and that if there were charges due because of the money not being available they would look into reimbursing me. I told him the money was to buy a home and that if I lose the home due not enough money are they going to buy me a home?
