Where do i begin?? Long story short, my identity was stolen and the person who stole it died. So chase, thinking i was dead, put a hold on my account so i couldnt get to my hard earned money. All that was necessary for me to do was to go to the social security department, fill out some papers, and bring them to chase bank so they send out a fax (which is almost instantaneous). I was supposed to have my account up and running the next day. The next day i went back to chase to see if it was fixed and they dont remember me being there. I had to go back to the social security department 3 more times to re-do all of this again and again and finally after the 3rd week they finally re-opened my account. My paychecks were still being deposited but i couldnt withdraw or make a bill payment in the entire 3 weeks it took for chase bank to send an instantaneous fax. The irony of it all is that while extremely furious and going through all of this, 2 of the bankers i "helped" me said that i should rob a bank while i still dont have an identity. I should have just robbed all the money they held from me and them burned the bank to the ground. All of this trouble when all i simply had to do was to never pick chase bank!! They suck!!
I recently went to the new Chase branch in Franklin Lakes, NJ. I wanted to open a new basic savings account with their current promotion. It said open an account with $15000 and after six months get $200 bonus. They tried convincing me to open a different account. I said I didn't need it. Then, while they were completing the savings account paperwork, they insisted I give them my account balance information from where I normally bank, my mortgage amounts, any retirement savings account information, any investments and and any other funds I may have. If I didn't I couldn't open an account. They said they needed that information to service my needs. I said I was just opening a savings account and shouldn't have to furnish all of my personal information. Needless to say I walked out. I should have been more wary. I have never been asked to ever do that in a bank before.
There is an error on the Chase Find Your Local Branch site. It identifies this as 611 6th Ave and West 28th St, when it is I West 18th St. As well on some of the Chase website information there is no branch shown as being here. I've been searching for more than 45 minutes and have only just found the correct branch address. It has to be much better than this.
