You people are ridiculous. You claim that they steal your money and screw you but if you followed the rules in the disclosures you received, your accounts would be just fine. And no they don't mess around with the system so you get overdraft fees...the system doesn't allow them to do that. That is all on you. And for those of you complaining about the fees and the recession, thats the frieken point! We're in a recession so the fees are necessary for businesses to stay open! And no matter what bank you go to these days there are going to be fees. Plus, there are plenty of ways to avoid the fees, if you can't follow them then that's your own damn fault. You people are idiots....no one is out to get you and your money, you just don't know how to follow the rules and procedures of the bank....so you're the ignorant ones...not the bank. I've worked for the company and I know that customers that get angry about fees and such are the ones that are the most ignorant and don't know jack about banking.
refused payment on an on line payment when there were adequate funds for the payment ruining my credit rating and nmy relationship with the creditor adios compass and good bye to twenty plus years of at least two million dollars of annual deposits
I have had a corporate checking account at this bank for decades but quit using once I moved overseas several years ago. It was always fee-free and I used it through many years and ran several millions of dollars through it in the course of my business. I left several hundred dollars in the account. I used Bank of America while traveling abroad because people recognize that name, whereas a lower-tier bank such as Compass possesses zero gravitas or recognition.
I recently returned from overseas and found I had fallen victim to this bank's predatory practices of changing my account terms, deducting several monthly fees and continuing to charge these fees against my account even after they had reduced my balance well below zero. I went into the branch to get an explanation and was treated with such disdain and told they had no choice to put a damaging entry on my credit report unless I paid them nearly $50 on the spot.
I told them they should be ashamed and said I didn't want to pay them a fine for stealing my money. The manager, whom Compass forbids me to name in this review (very large person at the 34th St. branch in Gainesville, FL) said she had no power to waive the fees and close the account at zero. She said I would have to call the corporate office.
So I asked to use a phone. She took me to the lobby next to the front door and said I would have to use the phone there. I asked to use a phone where I could sit down, with privacy, and she refused. No chair and told me to not speak loudly on the phone or I would be forcibly removed from the bank! Swear to god.
When I finally spoke to someone at corporate customer service, they said the branch mgr certainly did have the power to reduce and waive fees and actually was the only person to do it. They said they would call her immediately.
After standing and waiting a long period, the mgr came out and said she would magically waive the fees, close the account, and I was "Never welcome to ever bank with them again!"
