Failure to communicate and keep commitments

I have an unusual situation, but that is no excuse for the lack of communication and updates.

I attempted to trade in a 14-year old vehicle in on December 26th. The F&I Manager found that there was still a lien against it with Amcore Bank. Amcore Bank no longer exists. It was acquired by another institution and then by BMO Harris. I went home and searched for the title, but I could not find it. I found l that I received a notice that the loan was paid in 2001, but I never received the title. I am unable to get a duplicate title with the lien against me, so I need BMO to verify a lien release to get one. I first called 888-340-2265 on that day. I first spoke with Ross C. who said the records were no longer retrievable, but that he would take what information I had, including the purchase and payoff dates, and have a letter faxed within 2 business days. As of today, 1/5, I have not received it.

On 12/31, Ross said that the holidays had probably slowed things down, and that I should get the letter on 1/2 or 1/3.Ross has failed to return my calls on 1/2, 1/3, and 1/4. Three other CSRs claimed they couldn't take any action. They also said I could not speak to a supervisor, either Ross's or someone in "that other department" that is responsible for sending the letter. One of them said that there was a question in the file about the amount of the loan.

The car deal is no longer valid, and I do not have reliable transportation to work. I also don't know where I stand in BMO's process. In the scale below, there is no choice for "not applicable"

I should also mention that BMO has refused to adjust my mortgage rate from its current 5.7%, because I pay on time and my payment with them (not counting a second mortgage) is less than 1/3 of gross income. With the second mortgage and association fees, it is above 1/3 of my income. I am not happy to be your customer.

Nothing good to say about BMO harris

I had a 10 year equity loan that matured and having a hell of a time trying to get a modification, I truly believe they are trying to foreclose on my home, still making my monthly payments on time and they gave me a past 30 days on my credit report even though we are still working on a modification, I believe they are trying to screw up my credit so no other Bank will give me a loan.

Loan Sharks

In Arizona BMO obtained M/I bank. Previously I had an equity loan at interest only payments. BMO decided they will no longer offer this type of loan and I must change to a different type loan offered by BMO. However I was never informed of this change untill I was two months delinquent as my auto payment was discontinued. BMO then notified me of this with a $19,500.00 late fee without any detail or explanation.

Admittedly they overlooked my notification but insisted on me paying the erroneous fees anyway. I was forced to pay off this $390,000.00 loan in order to avoid the fees. I cashed in my 401K to accomplish this and am now searching for a new loan at any bank other than these loan sharks.
