Screwed me

FYI to people going on vacation. PEOPLES UNITED BANK can and did cancel my ATM card without cause.. Long story, short...they sent mail notification to my house 2000 miles away about a possible fraud. No phone call.I called them, they still would not reinstate the card, I faxed them my info as they requested, they promised to overnite a card, it was sent regular mail and arrived in Lexington, Ky after I had left. So, unable to obtain cash had to shorten my trip and drive home, no card still. Imagine it happening to you, maybe overseas....how screwed would you be. I am SWITCHING BANKS , you may want to do the same.

And the award for worst bank ever created goes to...

People's United Bank!

If you want to open an account with the worst bank ever, look no further! Unnecessary fees, unstable online banking are just a few problems with this bank. Funds are there one day and gone the next.

Heed my warning and avoid this bank at all costs. They will bleed you dry of all your money. Please, do not make a mistake and open an account with them.

Peoples Closing Accounts

My husband and I have been customers at Peoples for fifteen years. Just the other day we received notice that the bank was closing 2 accounts (one very active checking, one less active savings). No specific reasons were given other than a general "we're not making enough money off you" tone. We have never received any notice about insufficient activity, nor were we offered a substitute service to try and keep our business. Nothing. Just a "You're out in three weeks. Find another bank"

When I went to the local branch this morning (where the tellers know me and were very upset) they couldn't get any answers from corporate. So, I closed our 4 savings accounts (one joint, the others for our three kids). Once we have another bank lined up we close our personal and business checking accounts. We will close our safety deposit box. We will never, ever consider them for a mortgage, home equity line or any other banking service. I serve on two non profit boards and will make sure they are never considered as a banking option. My children - who we are trying to teach life lessons about money and banking - will never use them either. I used to be a big fan but now have nothing positive to say about them whatsoever.

In a highly competitive business such as banking, where everyone is tripping over themselves to get customers, this isn't how you treat the customers you have. Banking is a service industry that is built on customer relations. Customers are entrusting banks with their money. How can you trust a bank that treats customers like that?
