MyBankTracker rated Chase based on the following criteria that includes real customer reviews and bank fees, among others. Our bank report card is a proprietary rating system that highlights the financial health and stability of the bank.
I've been a long-time customer of this bank before they became chase. And for the most part i have been happy with them. Recently, we sent a wire transfer out of country for thousands of dollars. It was the bank's manager that helped with the paperwork. We were going to send out two transfers. We made it abundantly clear that we wanted to send the funds in dollars to the foreign bank. The bank manager assured us that it would go out just as we discussed. We didn't find out until the transfer was completed that we got screwed over by chase mishandling the paperwork.
Somehow, the first transfer was made in dollars and the second made in dinars. Because of the exchange rate from dollars to dinars, we lost thousands of dollars. We contacted the bank manager to find out what happened. It looks like the paperwork got mixed up and we signed the wrong ones on the second transfer. Chase's bank manager was the one that prepared the paperwork while we were there. She knew what we wanted to do. She prepared the correct the paperwork the first time and somehow flubbed the second. We tried to talk to management about the mistake. We got ignored.
We tried the BBB and complained. No response. When we decided to close down our savings account with them, they asked why we were leaving. We told them our story and we received no apologies. We got the cold shoulder. So we went down the street to open another account with another bank.
Customer service at this branch is the poorest possible it could be. The bankers are very rude and biased against internationals and show no interest in helping out the customers with their needs.
I went to this branch and wanted to apply for a credit card. The banker claimed that because of my country of origin and some new policies at the bank against terrorism money transfers(!!!), she cannot apply for a credit card for me. This did not make any sense to me since I've been living in the US for years and hold credit cards from other banks. I was very disappointed and angry because of her irrational response. I called the customer service of Chase bank and they said there is no such a thing and they helped me get a credit card on the phone! I'm wondering whether this experience indicates the banker's lack of knowledge and inability to do her job, or it is special treatment to minorities!
I do not recommend this branch at all, and in fact I think the manager of this branch really needs to rethink about some of the bankers working there.
