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.
how do I begin, I was deny a modification on my equity line of credit. It has been close to 2 years in the working. They finally deny me on Jan 2014. I was first deny in 2012.I went thru the affordable act hud housing counselors. BMO bank deny me because my interest was loan at that time. So I tried again in 2013 .I sent again all my paper work. Given another person to do my modification because the first person said to me that I would never get a modification. I reported her to the chairman of the board in Toronto Canada. He assign a new person to help me. Well guest after all this,after having people investigate my pass. They came up with that my credit report looks good. Now they have reported me to Transunion as being a charge-off with the intent of ruining my credit. I apply because I lost a 50,000 job, now only making 22,000. Please I need help! or I will loose my home of 13 yrs.
Incredible service! I have always had a great experience with BMO! Even when I had had concerns or frustration , they walk me through with online banking and business accounting. The online banking is fantastic, because I can customize my bill pay and it also calculates my balances for the future. They also actually have LIVE bankers you can call in those late hours when you have a question. I have had to use Chase before for a Girl Scout account and it was awful. I was rerouted to messages in circles. You do not get rerouted when you call BMO. You get what you need. I also was with BMO when they were M&I bank. They are the same great people and Joy, Laura, Jennifer, and the Branch Manager are incredible. There is no other bank like this!
