I deposited $54.00 CASH at 3:30 pm on Friday to cover an ACH on our internet bill. When I noticed over the weekend the deposit was not pending, I became concerned. Spoke to asst mgr Monday at the branch where I was informed my money was deposited in someone else's account because I put a norizontal mark across my 7's to prevent them from being mistaken as 1's (and I have been doing this since I opened this account over 8 months ago)
The teller mistook them for 9's & deposited my $54.00 cash into a COMPLETELY DIFFERENT account. Walked in there on Monday and the assistant manager did not feel he had to even apologize for this "error" instead showing me the copy of the deposit slip, berating me, saying "those look like 9's." WTF? No one I know on this planet makes their 9's look like tha!!
It looks like they "guessed at the account number," hastily connecting the horizontal slash across the middle of the 7's to make a 9. If they had only taken 1 second to look at THE NAME ON THE ACCOUNT this would not have happened. It doesn't do any good to swipe your debit card, either, because they don't bother with that, only look at the numbers on the deposit slip, and not even your name.
Now my account is in the negative due to this massive error.
Instead of crediting me IMMEDIATELY for the $54.00 (you'd think they could do that, but NO, they informed me they have to pull it out of the account they wrongly credited with it, then put it in my account. Oh, and by the way, THIS WILL TAKE UP TO 5 DAYS. Meantime, my account is still negative. When I expressed my concern, a representative of the bank said that any overdrafts would be reversed and "I only would have had 9.00 in the account after that anyway."
Can't wait til it does happen so I can close my account here, charging me $12 a month for their crappy customer service I discovered I can get totally free checking, all without having to have direct deposit, at the bank right next door to them.
On Black Friday I lost my pocketbook. I lost my drivers license and my bank card and all my credit cards. I do have my temporary drivers license, with no picture on it. I went to the branch to get a bank card, since the one that was mailed to my address, is still not there, my husband was with me too. The person who was working with me said she would ask me some questions. I told her that I use this bank card as cash/ it is impossible for me to remember every single transaction I made in last one week or so, any way I do appreciate that it is probably customer safety. In that case it would be probably better if she would just say "no" , "we can't give you a card, you have to wait for your mail", rather than asking the the same question again and again and making me feel like a stupid person.
My Credit/Debit card expired in May/13. Since then I've not been able to get a new one (renewed), despite a bunch of e-mails trying to do so...
