Horrible, incompetent employees don't take responsibility for their mistakes

I put a hold, then stop payment on a check I issued to my contractor as final payment because I came home to find the job not complete to my standards and wanted to write a new check once the job was completed (i.e. the space between cabinets for my dishwasher was not sufficient and he needed to re-hang them). Two weeks later, after attempting to reach my contractor many times to return to fix his mistakes, I learned that BBVA messed up by allowing my contractor to cash the check (they copped to this, thank you audio recordings). Because it was their mistake and they verified that they would be unable to take the money out of the contractor's account, BBVA credited my account by check's amount. I exclaimed that I could hire a new contractor to finish my job before Thanksgiving with the newly credited amount. The rep verified that I should wait until I saw the money appear in my account. A weekend and a day later, I hired the new contractor as I verified the credit had appeared in my account. The same day my new contractor starts and finishes the job, my first contractor calls to tell me that my check has bounced and that he will take me to small claims court if he isn't paid. BBVA tells me that attempting to recover their money is "an internal process" and the rep probably didn't know it was still possible when he told me it wasn't possible, thus the credit. They told me that I hired the second contractor under my own free will and that they are adhering to my original wishes. I acted based on the information they gave me and now I'll be in small claims court defending myself instead of moving on from an overall horrible experience. Multiple reps told me that I should shop around for better contractors and should not have paid the first contractor if the job wasn't complete. That's what I was trying to do and would have done if BBVA employees weren't so incompetent. I'm taking my business elsewhere - if anyone has suggestions, I'd love to hear them. Thanks,

NEVER AGAIN

I will never again do business with BBVA Compass bank. Since I took this car loan out in December of 2012 I have had nothing but issues with paying off this loan. I plan on refinancing with another bank as soon as possible. Every month I call is there is something wrong with my account. They either charge me late fees when my payment isn't late, say I am months behind when I have paid on time every month, say I have already been paid months ahead when I haven't, the list goes on and on. There are multiple different departments handling multiple different responsibilities. You can't just call one customer service number to have you name change, make a payment, or ask for pay off. You have to be transferred each time and each time you are transferred you are transferred to an employee that seems to know less and less about what they are doing.I thought I finally had someone straighten out this loan last month come to find out this month it was not. Every month I am given different information as to what is owed and what needs to be paid when. Heaven forbid you transfer insurance companies in the middle of the loan or you will be charged for their insurance and getting someone who knows what they are doing to add the correct insurance is impossible as well. Getting to speak to a manager is also impossible and I have been told many times "they will call you back" and never receive a phone call. Their customer service department is unprofessional and not knowledgeable at all and dealing with them month after month is nothing but a headache. I would just go to the bank every month, but the closest one is 300 miles away. BUYER BEWARE. Even if they have a low interest rate, this bank is not worth the headache and hour + time on the phone every month dealing with. By far the most horrible loan/banking experience I have ever dealt with.

My daugther got scammed by a so Company names Underwild..They contacted by Email & Yahoo messenger...She lost her job the end of March...This company claimed to be some kind of Soft ware/Design Co...They ordered her some software but sent her a hefty check amount..She deposited the funds in her checking acct...The company instructed her to under $2100.00 of it what they sent and deposit into another Bank acct they had set up in the area she lives in...she was allowed to do this 2 days after the deposit at COmpass..She was allowed to withdraw cash...On the next day she pulled up her acct and there was no more funds at all in her acct...What personal money she had Compass also froze...What the hell are they doing letting her withdraw funds after only 2 days....Now they holding her Liable for the check being fraudulent and are expecting her to pay it all back...BS..She doesn' t have it and she didn't write the check...Compass told her there was nothing they can do for her and told her to contact the police....She has filed a police report...She is ruined with this bank...My ?? is why don't they go after the people who sent the check and deal with the Bank she was told to go deposit the other funds in...This is Ludicrous! The bank needs to work with the local authorities and the FTC on it...I am disgusted with Compass and telling her she is liable for this
