This bank sent out an August promotional letter in which they offered to credit my account $ 200 upon my opening a new business account and using a debit card. Upon my meeting the requirements, they have come up with numerous excuses not to fulfill their part. The agent made me jump through hoops to PROVE that I had met the requirement, faxing her documents, threatening to close the case if I didn't do it " immediately ", then claiming that she read the " fine print", and they didn't yet have to fulfill the obligation for several more weeks. Several more weeks have gone by, and they STILL have not credited my account. They are in total default at this point.
To top it off, they deducted someone else's withdrawal from my account and have
yet to correct that either, although they are FULLY aware of it. I've called 4 times about that also. They say they are correcting, but then I see no correction on
my statement and I call yet again. Each time I call, a new agent answers and promises to correct, then doesn't. They refuse to give you their last name or any
phone number to contact them. It's very odd...they were able to correct a mistake that was advantageous to them, but not to correct their mistake that was disadvantageous to me.
In all my years of dealing with Chevy Chase Bank (over 30), I never had a situation in which I was ignored, dismissed, and arrogantly treated with mistakes (theirs) left uncorrected and fraudulent behavior regarding promotional advertising. They aren't worried because they are so well insulated from any appropriate action against them....Beware...If this is the future of banking, this is scary, folks.
capital one .com invited me to sign up for credit tracker.. yesterday I did and today I get email of change in my score. therefore today I log on to capitalone.com only to find NO LINK to the service now that I had signed up.. better yet customer service (nonservice) said they couldn't help me with it because the tracker is provided by a third party. So once again capital one is only interested in signing you up for something with no intent to ever service the idem.
Yes, they are a money-fee hungry beast. ING was great but now that they merged with Capital One, you should dump them both or expect fees that touch the legal limits.
Go to a Credit Union, they are fair and easy to join these days. Capital One and ING now enjoy a revenue model that caters to people with no options..You can do better.*
