I came to the U. S. in 2009 and soon opened my account in Chase. Several days earlier, I received a letter from them saying that my account is risky for their bank and they are going to close it. I went to their branch to check the issue, but nobody can tell me why they made this desicion. I tried to call the number on the letter but they can't give me a satisfied answer either. The only thing they can tell me is that a department of Chase evaluated my account and considered my account risky.
For the past three years, I used my account receiving direct deposite, paying bills and sometimes transfer some money from my native country. For me, I can't see any risk doing these normal transactions.
I am quite angry not for their decision but for they can't give me a good explianation. They did provide me a quite complicated way to appeal. But without doing anything wrong, I refused to spend my time on this.
Closing the account is actually painful for me because I have to cancel all automatic bill payments as well as to change the linked account with my paypal and auto loan. I would like to use another bank rather than playing games with their stupid evaluation department.
BTW, my banker is very nice. I am only complaining the Bank itself.
I have been a customer at Chase for many years. They have always been very helpful and friendly. Once, I had some trouble and over drew my account twice in a row. They charged me two $34 fees but reversed them upon request. Another time, someone evidently stole my card number and did some shopping in places i don't go. Chase called me immediately and I had my money back in my account in less than an hour. I'm staying with Chase thank you.
Chase now requires consumer account holders to make cash deposits personally. You can't have someone else put cash in your account. It's ridiculous. I'm moving my 2 business and 2 personal accounts to a local credit union. I advise all others to do the same.
This profit hunger monster does nothing for its' clients but create hurdles and say no. Good riddance too big to fail Chase and the egomaniac CEO Jamie "Greedy" Dimon that runs it. Perhaps if you hadn't been manipulating the market you wouldn't have had to pay billions in restitution to cover the Madoff gang and then subsequently force your consumer depositors to jump through hoops to make a cash deposit. Once again, someone else pays for your misdeeds. You may get my tax money from crooked politicians but I will not longer willingly donate another dime. FOAD.
