Worst Bank I have ever had the displeasure of dealing with. They are horrible. Stay away!

I had an auto loan through BMO when I bought my new car from the dealarship. The frist month I wanted to pay extra on the principal so I paid $100 more than the payment. When I looked later they didn't apply the extra to the principal but to the next payment (so they get more interest). I called and complained and they fixed it and said I would have to send in 2 checks, 1 for the regular payment and another for the extra with a letter asking for the additional to be applied directly to the principal.

I did this and sure enough, they applied it to the next payment again. This went on for 4 months before I said enough is enough and refinanced through my local bank. Now BMO wont send my local bank the letter of termination for the loan I had through them and it has been almost 2 months. We are still waiting for the letter so I can get a refund on the GAP insurance I bought through the dealarship and so my local bank can finish paperwork and send the title to the Secratary of State Office.

Long story Short: This bank is absolutely horrible at doing the basic requirements and fulfilling their obligations. I would not go through this bank unless you have no other options.

Stay Away-Horrible Bank with rude customer service

I became a customer through acquisition. Immediately BMO Harris held my deposit for twleve (yes, 12) days! The check I deposited came from another family member. I was able to product the cleared and cancelled check to BMO Harris, but they still would not release the funds. In adidition to holding that deposit, they gave me a "0" available funds balance...even though I had a little over $400.00 in account before the transition. I am checking with the Attorney General about the legality of this move. They charged me a 35.00 fee, as during the "hold" time I did have one check presented for payment and it did not clear due to the fact they were holding my deposit. I was given the name and number of someone in Chicago who personally puts "holds" on deposits. Needless to say, I was not able to reach this person.

Save yourself the headache of dealing with these people. Go to a bank that wants your business.

BMO must stand for Blow Me Off

My circumstances are similar to review posted by boogieboyzgirl

Have my mortgage with Harris for 15 years and a HELOC for 10. Balloon payment was due in November, began the process of combining both loans in October, but was denied for various reasons. Never a late payment, 780 credit score and 50%+ equity in home. Now I can't get financing because the 11 weeks they jerked me around made the HELOC delinquent. Can't wait to pull all my accounts from them....not that they would notice.
