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".
Too bad the national recording answers and not a 'live' person when you dial the local branch. Both gaylord branches were not able to help me with a check that was deposited. It was such a bother. Oh those darn customers!
Stay away from fifth bank. Their customer service is a joke and there's never a bank manager available to speak with. They'll also put your check on hold for 12 freaking days for the dumbest reasons. The $37 overdraft fee is a joke. You've been warned -- don't bank with Fifth Third Bank.
