MyBankTracker rated Fifth Third Bank based on the following criteria that includes real customer reviews and bank fees, among others. Our bank report card is a proprietary rating system that highlights the financial health and stability of the bank.
The amount of time it takes them to process simple loan payments is ridiculous; it sometimes takes 2-3 WEEKS from the date I mail my payment to the time it is processed and then - uh oh - now I have a late payment fee.
The first couple of times this happened I thought it could be a US mail problem, but this happens every month! I mailed January's payment on December 27th and it has still not been processed and they claim they haven't received it yet!
(I don't have this problem with any other creditor, by the way.)
Customer service recommends that I do direct deposit, but why would I let a bank that can't even process a simple payment on time put their hands into my pocket?
RUN, don't walk away from this bank unless you want to constantly be worried that they "haven't received your payment".
A friend of mine told me about a bank rep named Brooke Eidson and about how she could help me with me financial situation. Asked to speak with her, gave them my name, waited about 6 minutes on the phone and the lady who took the phone call picked up again and tells me that she is no longer with the bank. Either you know who you work with or you don't in this situation.
Like other reviews I had read it started out with a great deal on a car loan. But quickly found out that that 53 gets fee happy. They are the first bank that was pushy trying get me to refinance or open account. I finally open checking account because they won't give you the option to use an outside bank to pay by phone on loan and on their credit card as well
I ran into medical issues and got 3 or more calls a day when I got behided. Now thing that makes the most evil bank is that I a made agreement from loan dept in Cincy Ohio that I could make my payment by outside bank that I had account for over 10 years. 53 hit me w/ $260 in overdraf fees and turned my checking over to collections while at the same time taking payments from my other checking account. What F-ing JERKS. I'm paying off my car this month and I will never ever want to give 53 a penny ever again
