Yes in the last month or so i had to move home from chicago because i lost everything in the real estate market. When i went to the bank with my mother who has been with the same bank since 1969 (though all changes of ownership) we were greeted by a blond haired lady named laura. She is in her 30's or 40's and i wanted to cash a check for $2500 dollars that clearly said cash for keys on it. If you are banking and don't know what this is you clearly are a moron. She then announces to the bank "what is cash for keys. " i said i lost my house in foreclosure. She then looks at my mother and says, "i don't remember seeing you in here before. " now keep in mind bmo has several locations and i am sure laura hasn't met everyone who banks with bmo. My mom had well more than $2500 in her account to boot. She then says if we do this you will have to wait 11 days. She claimed she couldn't verify the check which was done 15 minutes later by a manager who also asked the same questions laura did. She then makes some other insulting questions. By the time i was done with this witch my mother and i felt like criminals. She is horrific at dealing with people and i hope to god somewhere in the future laura loses everything she owns and ends up in the same boat i was and someone her treats her the way she treated us. End of the story i got my cash but now i am just making everyone aware of my experience with laura at bmo so they don't bank there. Something tells me you will remember me next time you see me laura. I hope you get fired.
I was charged a $100.00 fee for no discernable reason. After many phone calls (and promised return calls that never occurred), I finally got them to agree that I do not owe this amount and that it would be credited.
Over the past several months, no credit occurred--even though I contacted them several times and they again told me it would be credited.
The maturity date of the loan was reached yesterday and behold, the only balance on the account is the aforementioned debit.
I am on the phone with them again (on hold waiting for the fifth transfer to someone that can help me) and am getting the run-around.
As stated in the subject above--IF YOU WANT HEADACHES THIS IS THE BANK FOR YOU!!!
