My paycheck was direct deposited into my savings on Monday. On Monday morning, I transferred the whole amount to my checking. I checked my balance yesterday and saw $185 in NSF fees. I called customer service and was told there online transfers has a problem on Monday. The customer service rep said I should not have a problem getting the NSF fees refunded to me and he had to send it to a supervisor. Low and behold, I had a voicemail from the supervisor today stating that my account wasn't eligible for a "courtesy" rebate. How is it a courtesy when its their fault? I'm a single mother living paycheck to paycheck and $185 is a lot of money to me!
My husband just returned from picking up a few euros for an upcoming trip. They literally lied to him about the exchange rate, telling him it changed from $1.35 to $1.45 over the weekend. He looked it up when he finished and found it to be untrue, it's still $1.35. In addition, he waited 20 minutes even though there was no line AND paid a fee for the "convenience" of being ripped off. First thing on the to-do list when we get back from vacation? CHANGE BANKS!!!

My combined amount in checking and money market were always well over the required amount to avoid the $20 monthly maintenance fee. Nonetheless I was charged $20 for several months in a row when my checking account went under the minimum amount. I was told that my checking and money market accounts were not “linked”, thus I was charged the maintenance fee for those months my checking was under the minimum. Now, “linking” the accounts is something the bank does for you, or doesn’t do for you, in my case. They gave me a false sense of security and never mentioned or said anything about “linking” the accounts. This may be a sneaky practice on their part, or just negligence, I don’t know.
