Knowing the bank charges $35 for an overdraft fee, I attempted to avoid being over withdrawn ( I also signed up for their protection against this happening and still did not get any help there!) After transferring money to leave $1 in my account, I was charged with a $15 maintenance fee. I called customer service inquiring about this charge, I was told because I had under $100 in my account. I have never been charged $15 to my account before and have had under $100 in this account on numerous occasions. The representative then told me (in broken english) that I can change my convenience checking account to a simple checking account. I can have a minimum balance of $0, BUT they will charge me $3.99 a month for a maintenance fee!! When I asked if I had $1 in my account, will this fee still apply. She said, "Yes, even if you have $100 in your account the fee will still apply." So essentially, I'm paying to be at their bank. The last 5 years of loyalty to your bank clearly means nothing when customers hold so much trust in their bank. I hope someone is enjoying their $15-$35 martini on their yacht in the Pacific somewhere while I argue to hold on to the last few dollars I have.
They are sitting on a wire claiming that the sending bank never sent them the information they requested when the sending bank has now sent them the information 2x. Each time I call I hear a different story from "what wire..we don't see any record of a wire" to claiming they made requests for information from the sending bank on different dates from what I heard in the last phone call. They don't let you speak to their wire department directly so you have to relay your communication through (an often incompetent) customer service representative. I have a simple business checking account and couldn't imagine expanding my services with them when they are this incompetent on such a basic transaction.
If no stars were possible I'd give them that.
I had a car loan with them. Since my first payment I've paid my loan 4+ months at a time because I'm a seasonal employee and I like to have as little to no bills when I'm not working. This was fine for three years of my loan.Then one of the tellers processed the payment incorrectly. With out ANY kind of notification from the bank they put my account into collections! I went in a few months later knowing I should have been on track with payments and wanted to know how much was left on the account when the teller told me I'd have to call their 1-800 number to get my information which I thought was odd but paid my usual few months and left. Called the number and was told my car was in recovery! It took a coarse of three days to get everything (to what I thought) squared away. Mad at the whole situation and not wanting to deal with this bank anymore I paid my loan off in full. I was waiting the one to two months for my title to come in the mail and once I hit the third month I called the 1-800 number again to findout where my ttitle was. I got the run around again! Saying that my account is in collections abd then in recovery! I Paid it off in full at a bank branch location. This had been the biggest nightmare of my life! My credit is perfect except for all this mess which isn't even something that is my fault!
Go to this bank only if you want them to destroy your credit.!
