Went to PNC because they handled Freddie MAC/Fannie Mae Mortgages -
OK - banking officer suggested I apply for a VISA card because new home - expenses - 12 mos. interest free - OK !! I set up - paid for some expenses - Busy - Set up Auto Pay for min. payment was going to pay off whole thing within 12 mos. - Found out even though I didn't receive any statements or notice - THAT THEY WERE CHARGING ME INTEREST ON A PURCHASE FROM THE 6TH MONTH - Upon Calling I got the Snotty Remark I should have read the very clear disclosure statement - I said I was sold the CARD - during the hectic moving process and was told it would be 12 mos. interest free - that I didn't feel I had to sit down and read a 20 page fine print contract if the Financial Rep at the bank said it would be 12 mos. interest free - (turns out 12 mos. interest free on a Transfer - 6 mos on purchase) - said having an MBA - from an Ivy League School - I could read the contract - but if I ask and am told it's 12 mos. interest free - and I'm approached during a busy time like moving - I would assume I could trust the Verbal Explanation - PNC CUSTOMER SERVICE REP. AND SUPERVISOR - said read the Disclosure - THIS BANK IS FOR THE BIRDS - I suggested the least they could do is offer some form of credit - and my intent to avoid paying 23 percent APR was clear that when I found out for the first time their interest I PAID THE WHOLE BALANCE OFF IMMEDIATELY -
No Dice - I JUST SAID FINE - I'M GOING TO WRITE MY ELECTED OFFICIALS AND POST ALL OVER ABOUT THEIR LITTLE SCAM - AND SNOTTY - BAD ATTITUDE - Probably - Just Told - This is the Line - You Give Customers if you want to Keep Your Job ! A pity but that's what seems to be common place business practice - you loose a couple of customers and you rope another 5 in!!! JUST DOING MY BIT TO KEEP PEOPLE FROM GETTING ROPED! CAVEAT EMPTOR!
I was at this bank to open a new bank account. Since i had a negative account that was closed and i paid it in full after a month, the pnc verification center wanted the branch manager to request a bypass code.
The branch manager MARY SUDHERS acted as if she tried her best and i believed her. Later when i talked to the pnc over phone, they weresurprised to see that she had denied me to request the code and the bank was ready. Dont go to her.
This has been the most frustrating experience - I started a chat with Karen concerning an alert from PNC that someone had authorized telephone password changes. It took 50 minutes and she finished by saying that nothing could be done! She was obviously chatting to several people at the one time, which took forever waiting for her to respond to each question. At one point she gave me an answer intended for someone else. The final insult was that the site would not allow me to leave feed back! I'm in the process of changing banks. Horrible, horrible service and clued out, incompetent, help.
