I have been a checking account holder at this bank for 15 years. I've consistently maintained a balance, but lately only used the account occasionally. In July 2012, I logged into my account, only to find that it was closed. Dormant account fees of $5 per month had been assessed to the point where the balance was totally consumed. The bank explained that after six months of no activity, the bank starts assessing its monthly dormant account fees. The problem is that I have definitely gone more than six months in the past without activity, so this must be a new rule -- perhaps one hidden in a new set of "terms and conditions" for the account? I don't know. Initially they offered to refund me a portion of the fees. But then my account again was assessed dormant account fees that again brought the account to zero, only this time they started accruing after only 3 months of no activity. How could 3 months of no activity be grounds for labeling an account dormant? A phone call to the branch where I opened the account was unreturned. Customer service declined to offer me any fee refund. I was told "we appreciate your years of banking with us," and thus ended my 15 years of being a Huntington account holder, after the bank garnished my entire account balance via successive (dubious in my view) fees.
I have been a business man for 44 years and have never been treated with the respect and honesty that is afforded to me by this bank. My branch is the Meijer on 28th st and Kalamazoo in Grand Rapids. Tellers are friendly and accurate. The manager Dan is the best I have encountered. They have helped me out on many occasions where other banks would have ignored the situation.
I get direct deposit every other Friday. I also get a paper check which I deposited the following Saturday. Monday, I checked my account balance online and was wondering why my balance was so low when I should have more available. I subtracted each transaction from the deposit 3 days prior, and should have over $129 more to my balance(not including the check I deposited on Saturday). I then called customer service and the rep told me that the computer sometimes "plays" with the numbers. I was thrown!!I How can the computer play with the transaction amounts and balance? I asked the rep. He said he did not know, and kept repeating the same thing over and over about the computer playing with your account balance. He then told me I should get my true account balance by the end of the business day. If I cannot trust a bank to hold the correct amount of money I have, then what the h**** is the purpose of banking here???
