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.
Run don't walk as fast as you can away from huntington bank or any bank for that matter. Opt out! what a joke, they do what they want. One person tells you one thing, another explains it totally different, no one really knows for sure what the hell's going on. They target seniors and take advantage of them. Fees on top of fees 37.50 times 4x day that's highway robbery. Who regulated that, Before you know it your moneys all gone and you can't pay your bills. And they refuse to correct it, playing the 24 hour grace period game, was how she put it. She a snotty !!!!!! What about the games the banks have been playing for years. disgraceful. Here's another game miss snooty, I've cancelled my direct deposit so you can't steal any more of my money. maybe you'll try to correct things now. Maybe not. I'm also looking for a credit union to deposit my newly won lottery check for millions of dollars. To bad you treated me with such disrespect. Have a very bad day! Remember what goes around comes around! Unsatisfactory!
So I got this special deal for opening a checking account for working at Walmart, we all know how hard it is to keep the bills up in this economy, meeting this chick Sarah and opening this account was a massive mistake. Had account fraudulent activity done to my account wasn't aware of it they never notified me. Yes, I probably should have checked my statements, lesson learned, hard working mom busy full time student. Needless to say when I caught it they already made out with close to 500 in overdraft fees from two bounced checks which the account should have had enough to cover but due to fraudulent activity there was nothing in there to cover it. Knowing that I worked because that was the deal of opening this account should have been common sense that it was an honest oversight, the checks didn't even add up to 40 a peace. Needless to say called customer service. They were rude as hell to me and said sorry but we can't do anything, so I am trying to pay down on this balance as every week there after their tacking more overdraft fees on this thing. They made off with 900.00 dollars in overdraft fees, now I am working two jobs, my sons father is working, and our son will not see us for the holidays due to their rip-off scheme, received court papers in the mail demanding I pay otherwise I will have bench warrant. They never notified me at all that my account was in error. Hell Bank of America has the decency to blow up my phone, send email, letters in the mail when this happens. Which by the way, Bank of America is awesome, aside from that Huntington does not have their customers in their interest at all. I don't know how you sleep at night you peaces of ****!
