My husband decided to get this bank since they are opened on Sundays. He opened his account first then we decided to get a joint account there also. The first day we go in to setup a joint account the lady explains that if we deposit cash in an ATM it won't be available for a few days which automatically made me not want to bank there but my husband decided to still bank there we give the lady 600 cash to put in the account and explain to her we need the money available tomorrow because that is the money to take our car out the shop she says the money will be available since we were depositing it with a teller and it is cash the next day we go to swipe for our car to come out the shop the card is declined and when we call the customer service the lady says they have no idea what she deposited the cash as but the money won't clear for 7 days that they "THINK" she deposited it as a check but have no idea for sure immediately I wanted to close the account but our car rental security deposit was still on hold and when I asked how long the hold takes to come off so I can get my money out they tell me 30 days which I have never heard of a hold taking that long to clear ever! The way this bank holds people money and takes days for money to clear is ridiculous! Then you have to pay to basically even have an account there! They should pay us for using their horrible services!
My husband's debit card number was stolen. No one from TD bank notified him, despite Visa canceling it and notifying the bank. The only way he found out that it was being fraudulently used, was when he tried to use his own card and it declined. Even with Visa confirming it was fraudulently used, TD bank had to turn it into a lengthy investigation. We had to wait about a month for the money to be put back in our account.
I received a $50 TD Bank Visa gift card as a present and it has turned out to be the worst gift ever. I tried to use it at a restaurant where the waiter told me he was unable to get the funds off the card and I needed to call the bank. I subsequently paid the bill in cash. Over the last six months I have called many times about this dispute. Originally I was told that I would get my money if the merchant did not respond in 30 days. Subsequently I was told the merchant did not respond but the dispute was constantly being reviewed and someone would get back to me.
In late June / early July, I was told that in order to get my money, I needed to produce proof of payment. It is ridiculous to ask a customer to provide a receipt six months later. I spoke to a representative who told me the initial representative had given me bad information, would work to get it resolved and call me back in a few days with an update. Obviously I never heard from him and received a letter in the mail closing the dispute. Calling back I was told there is nothing that can be done without a receipt.
The lack of customer service on this issue is appalling. Amazing that you can call yourself the friendly bank and criticize other banks for their lack of customer service.
