Horrible Bank. Can't Wait To Close My Account There

First they took advantage of us by charging us $74 in overdraft fees. When we asked that it be waived as we were not interested in their overdraft protection, they told us that there is nothing they can do because we are asking in more than 14 days after the charges were billed. This is nothing but an excuse. One of our transactions was $15. The overdraft charge that it cased was $37. Then i locked out my account. The first rep i spoke to just unlocked it. Then i ended up locking it again 2 weeks later.

I ended up with a different rep who had a completely different standard of what he will be needing to unlock the account. This one wanted the card or account number in addition to the usual social security, etc. Verification info. I did not have it with me so he refused to unlock my account. So now great i have to call again later. I need one more month to transfer all electronic payments out of it and then i can't wait to close the account. Hopefully i'll have an opportunity to tell the rep when i'm closing the account that they are truly "! @#$ bank. "

Predatory jerks

I was running a small business and set up accounts at TCF because I was getting checks in the door and they were close, making it easy to desposit. As mentioned by others, their overdraft policies are designed to result in fees for even the most responsible people.

We then made the mistake of refinancing our home with TCF. They hit us with a balloon loan (this was at the height of the financial crisis), but we figured we would refinance before the interest rate increased. Unfortunately, they stuck a clause into the deal saying we had to pay a penalty if we paid it off before the full term of the loan. So we had to eat that.

More recently, I went back to close a few accounts I had left inactive, and found they were almost drained with an inactive account fee they added. Compounded over time, they stole thousands of dollars from my accounts with monthly fees just for having money in the bank.

Hijacking your deposits

When it really counts - like trying to buy a house, TCF fails miserably in every way imaginable. I transferred a large amount from another bank into TCF, and they hijacked that deposit for the full 9 days. I called to ask what was up and they blamed it on the other bank. So then I got my other bank on the phone, verified that the funds had been RELEASED by them, and we conferenced called TCF, who then made an about-face and admitted that they just couldn't make the funds available to me yet, even acknowledging that they lied initially. Now fast forward, and I need to make a wire transfer out of TCF to the mortgage underwriter. I called two times in the week leading up to the closing date to verify how the wire transfer works, and how long I will need. They ASSURED me that as long as I completed the paperwork in the branch before 2PM, it would be all cleared by noon the next day. Now it's the next day and the wire hasn't cleared yet. I call them and ask again what's up. "Well since it is a large amount there are extra steps to verify, I can assure you it will clear by 3PM". Hold up. 3PM?!? YOU JUST TOLD ME NOON!!!!

The second I close on my house, the very first thing I'm looking forward to is closing my TCF accounts forever. Avoid this garbage institution at all costs or you'll regret it when it matters most.
