    Horrible

    First, I let my credit card expire because I never wanted to go back, but apparently they sent me a new credit card that I never got. Then I saw a bill for $82 because apparently they have some insurance on my credit card that kept it open. They are literally the worst bank out there and I am so glad that I canceled.

    Awful

    I needed a Money Order/Cashiers Check. I called the bank this morning to see if this location offered this service. I was asked if I was a customer and I said "No". The person told me that it was not a problem that I was not a customer, and that the fee would be $3.00.

    At lunchtime today I walked to the bank. I told the lady at the window I needed a Cashiers check. She told me they only had money orders. I said that was fine and handed her $320 in United States CASH. She asked for my account number. I told her I did not have one, but I had called earlier and was told I could still purchase a cashiers check. She told me "NO -- we only provide services for people with accounts at the bank".

    Although I was standing there with cash in hand she refused to sell me a money order or cashiers check, because I was not a customer. I was able to walk down the street to the currancy exchange and they were happy to take my money and sell me a money order for a total fee of $1.00 -- $2.00 less than First Midwest Bank told me they would do.

    Guess I won't ever be able to get a money order or cashiers check at First Midwest Bank -- after the poor service I received I would never want to do business with them.

    Absolutely Ridiculous, A Perfect Example Of How Not To Run A Business.

    First midwest is the worst excuse for a financial institution, that i have ever had the extreme misfortune to experience. I have had bad experiences with them in the past, but let them slide, making the mistake that they were simple anomalies. Their ceo must have a large pole.... And certainly does not have a brain, judging by policies and practice. Closing my account.
