The Worst Banking Experience Ever

Stay away from this bank! Their technology is stuck in the 80s. You can get better customer service from a sewer rat. They have put a curse over the Buffalo Sabres.

A mediocre bank all around

I got signed up recently because of the $250 new account promotion, and the signup bonus was delivered as promised, and quickly. But that was about the only good experience with this bank. Outdated ATMs that don't put out receipts for deposits, deposits that are updated by the bank so as to hit you with as many late fees as possible (e.g., cash deposited at an ATM during the weekend wasn't reflected in balances until the next Monday or Tuesday, so that I was charge a hefty $37 insufficient funds fees). The computer systems in the branch and online are outdated as well, and they like to push physical paperwork around, at a slow pace. Avoid this bank at all costs, or, better yet, get your revenge by taking advantage of their next big promotion, and running away with your cash, because I guarantee you they will get you with the illogical and usurious fees.

Hateful Towards Disabled

I recently became disabled and while I am waiting for funds from retirement and SS disability, I did not have enough funds for a full credit card payment. I made a partial payment on 6/16/14. First Niagara called me just before I was going to call them. I wanted to discuss if I could have a temporary (12 Months) reduced payment plan so I could be current and pay less with a reduced rate until my funds come in. I was interrupted. He said, "so you have no income"! I tried to say that I would have some retirement beginning in July, but was cut off. He went to the "supervisor" came back and said, your account is now closed! (As if he just scored a touch down! I asked if I could have a temporary payment plan with a reduced rate so I could get caught up. He said no. PNC Bank gladly helped me with the same request.

If you want to keep customers your will learn to treat them with respect. Since 6/16/14 they have called multiple times to annoy me, and called with "no name" listed and say nothing several times a day. They are just hateful.
