After reading an article about successful businesses that made more money off merchandise than the actual product. Ex. Hooters resturant, doggy styles pet grooming, hard rock, etc. I decided to name my store in a similiar fashion. I got appproved with the irs, my local city and county government had no problem with the name.
After opening the account and it being open for a short time, arvest canceled my account because of the name. I called the office of controled currency with the federal government and the man i spoke with said that it was the first time he had ever heard of that. He also said the name was not bad and contain no obscene words so he felt they had no grounds. He actually asked me if someone working at the bank didnt like me. Lol
After banking with Arvest for 15 years and being sick with pneumonia my account ended up out of whack. I called them to discuss the discrepencies and asked them to work with me. All I got from them is that they really don't care that I was sick in the hospital with pneumonia, it wasn't their fault and they will not adjust any fees unless I can prove that they made an error in any way. All I can say is if you don't care about your customers any more than that then you certainly don't need me as a customer.
Only choose this bank if you want to be repeatedly inconveneinced. We have had debit cards cancelled with no warning leaving me straded away from home with no way to buy gas (I rarely carry cash), fees charged out of the blue (we did eventually get the money back), accounts with a balance cancelled for nonactivity even though they send a statement every month as though nothing was wrong, etc...
After having enough money in the bank to make the purchase, thay declined our request for a car loan. Of course we have NO credit (not bad) except our mortgage (which has never been late)since we choose to save for all our purchases instead of paying interest, but apparently they do not take into consideration the 8 years of loyalty our family has given them. They told us they could only give us the loan if we gave them the ENTIRE purchase price of the car to lock into one of their CD's (at the lowest rate in town) which would tie up our savings leaving us no choice but to get a loan if we had an emergency. (sound a bit fishy?)
Needless to say, this bank has put us through a lot. It takes a lot of time and work to change banks and that is the ONLY reason we have banked with them this long. Do yourself and choose a different bank.
