My sister has been dead for 5 years and I live in her home. She had an equity loan with Chase. The title is in escrow to finalize full title transferred to my parents.
After Chase sends 3 letters here to this address which they know she's deceased, I call Chase and tell them I am her brother, a businessman with 1000's of customers, and understand privacy however I only want THE Chase "business process" rules, not specific details of my sisters loan.
I tell the customer service person, in the spirit of me being an internet author writing an article on how Chase does business I want to 1) know why (as a business process) Chase would send letters to the address of a diseased person (any person regardless who), 2) why form letters would be sent to any person saying an account cannot be closed (the public rule in the spirit of an article being written, an instructive rule, not details of this particular account). That any generic answer would be instructive.
The rep refused to speak about anything. I told him the general public is pretty tired of big banks and their dealings and that I can only write about what I'm not being told then. That the fact they will not be instructive at all about their business practices fuels the outrage brewing the in the public eye. And it is an outrage banks do not want you to understand their business processes and do not provide better customer support.
I in the past closed a credit card acquired by Chase for charging a late fee when I never got a statement during their transition period, and unlike other cards that have discretionary power to wave fees Chase would not, so rather than keep me as a customer they cared not that I closed my account.
Because I feel Chase customer support is the WORST I've ever experienced aside from some cell phone and cable companies, I support BOYCOTTING CHASE BANK!
We opened checking account so my son could go to out of state school and I could deposit into his account. Now a new rule could not deposit $300 cash into his account. Not a large sum of money. Can't wait to close this account. Other banks in town. bye bye chase. stupid new rule. I hope you luck with all the aggravation you are going to cause us.
I am closing my Chase account first thing in the morning. They are scamming people, playing with their income as if it's a monopoly game. For these 2 years of being with them (only due to the convenient location), I never knew how much money I had, how much I spent, or how much I saved because they play around with their customers as if they're marionettes. They are rude, they refuse to explain where did your money disappear, they don't ask for your consent on things they need to explain to you because they will cost you money when you're opening the new account such as savings. They approve a small portion of your check no matter for how long you've been getting paid with the same type of check, and then approve the rest after 10+ days. If you chose to pay bills through Chase bill pay, they send the money away for a day or two, out of which only portion gets returned as "credit" back to your account, using a 'malfunction' as an excuse they couldn't send the payments the day you sent them, and refusing to explain things such as, if the person I was sending the money to never got it, why did only a part of it get credited back? Where is the rest of the money I worked hard for, Chase? And when it comes to companies, banks, specifically, dealing with my money, I'd rather never hear the word such as "malfunction". And if I do, I better get e big, fat explanation for hearing it. The Vice-President of the Chase I go to(soon to be past tense), is Vera Agropian. I'm stating this, desperately hoping that something will change in this bank, and as usually, it should start from the base of the problem. She is incredibly unhelpful, rude, treats you as if you have no reason to be in 'her' bank, and as if she is better than anyone else in the bank. A prime example of power-corrupted monster. Sad thing is that she can't even speak English fluently. I've been in United States for 3 years, and sadly, this is just one of the few companies that makes me regret leaving Europe.
