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.
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
