I had the misfortune to deal with more than one phone Chase Bank representative
who completely wasted my time, and on top of it they acted if they were doing ME a favor by interruopting my work day with their interrogation.
Today was NOT the first time I got a call from Chase wanting to verify a transaction I had made online. Please note that I never had trouble with the online security questions or passwords. It just seems that Chase has overly sensitive triggers for a bit higher amount transactions (eg., thousands), or even low amounts(eg, hundreds) in international transactions.
So this Chase phone operator calls me to verify my transaction. I call Chase back to the number provided to make sure it's not a scam, and the so-called specialist started to fire the security questions at me. I answered perfectly and was sure everything would be fine, but after half an hour of interrogation in a sour tone, she wantedto call my other bank from where I had transfered some money into my Chase account. I was placed on hold for a long time until she established a three-way conference call with the source bank for the transaction (both local banks where I've been a customer for 15yrs+, when Chase was still Washington Mutual).
It turns out that without me giving my password away they couldn't verify the transaction, so after all the hassle and sour interrogation, I still must go in person to the branch!
I am miffed for 2 reasons:
1. I wasted a lot of time for absolutely nothing!
2. The wonam, called Virginia, was extremely rude. She had an annoyed tone throughout the ordeal, and kept telling me that she was doing me a favor. Also used a threatening tone to tell me that I would have to go to their branch in person if I wouldn't out with her rude behavior for longer (which in the end I have to do anyway!)
There are incompetent people everywhere, but Chase seems to take the prize in using them to waste your time.
Well, i am here to say that even those with a serious bank account are not treated with any value nor respect from this bank. I paid $30 to stop a check being cashed. It was a successful stop. But the fraud waited for a year to the day and went into a chase branch and cashed the check. Although the bank reps agreed this was not right and should shave been stopped as a stale check, the management of the bank refused to make good on their error. I am a customer that had $400k in their bank and their $948 error was too much to bear. This bank clearly cares nothing about their customers. The more money you hold in this bank the more you have at risk for being the victim of their error and their justifying they have no culpability in their mistakes. Put your money anywhere else but this bank.
I am so annoyed with this bank. I deposited a check into my account on a Sunday afternoon, and was informed that it the whole check would be available 2 days later, and some was available now. When I went to purchase a money order it would not go through. The next day I tried to use my card again and it was declined. I had to go to a bank teller who informed me that my card had been canceled!!! I was beyond pissed especially since I never got a text, email, or phone call about this. They just locked it cause they claimed they suspected fraud. I'm so over this bank
