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 have been with chase for years and it is getting horrible by the day! When you call customer service you get a foreigner that you can't understand,and the one who you can understand are not helpful. I can't lie there was a guy in the past that was awesome. But everyone else sucks. This year I have racked up more than $400 in fees and it's only been 6 months. A direct deposit of more than $1000.00 was going in every week. I know that's chump change for you guys. But I'm taking my direct deposit to navy federal. It's sad because I really liked this bank that's why I stuck around for the last 5 years.
Ok, let me start out by saying “i really had chase bank”. I tried to put cash into sons checking account today. I had cash so it would available to him without having to wait. After waiting 15 minutes in line because they only had one teller open i learned that because my name was not on his account they would not let me deposit my money. I explained to her that i was trying to put money in his account, not trying to take it out. She said unless my name was on his account i could not do it. I asked her how i was supposed to get money down to him if i could not deposit into his account. She told me that as of march 3rd it was company policy not to let people deposit money if their name was not on the account. They are trying to prevent “money laundering”. So according to chase bank i could be laundering money $100. 00 at a time. So what we have to do is have my wife put the cash into her chase account and then she can transfer it to sons account. That’s twice the work and headache to get to the same outcome. Come on chase get your head out of your ass.
