The car dealer from whom I purchased a car, Power Chevrolet, would not accept a 2 day or even an overnight check for the balance on a car I purchased after putting down more than 50%. I had gotten pre-approved for a loan by Chase in Tucson, but the finance person, Scott at the dealership, would not work with the Chase bank in Tucson. I had to find a Chase bank in a city with which I was not familiar, and start the whole loan process anew. Serge, the bank manager, was very accommodating and rushed through a loan app, approval, and was able to cut me a check for the car loan in less then 2 hours!
Thanks again, Serge. You did a great job!
There is an error on the Chase Find Your Local Branch site. It identifies this as 611 6th Ave and West 28th St, when it is I West 18th St. As well on some of the Chase website information there is no branch shown as being here. I've been searching for more than 45 minutes and have only just found the correct branch address. It has to be much better than this.
I have been a Chase customer for over 5 years but recently went through one of the worst experiences with a bank. Essentially, a large deposit from another reputable financial institution triggered a fraud alert and Chase, without contacting me, decided to freeze my funds to investigate. The fraud and control department was so inept they did not have the right number to contact that institution -- I think they googled the number and got the investment office who could not validate the funds so Chase decided to close my account, once again without contacting me.
Once I found out (through a letter in the mail), contacted the local branch manager who then contacted the institution to verify and resolved the matter in 5 minutes -- but the wheels were already in motion. For over 2 weeks no access to funds and could not pay bills including mortgage. Luckily I had back-up but think of those folks whose funds are all tied to one account.
The bank manager told me this happens all the time to and is very frustrated with this process - it seems they use a shotgun approach to fraud, surprising in this day and age that they can not accurately detect and assume everyone is a fraudster. Nevertheless I am banking with a credit union now.
