I work for a small business with my father, and we have a car loan on one of our vehicles with u. S. Bank. For the past several years we have promptly paid our bill via monthly check. Lately i have been helping with technology upgrades and started paying more bills online, including our loan with u. S. Bank. I scheduled 3 online transactions in oct, nov, and dec, but in jan i received a notice with our statement stating that we were delinquent on our loan, and they assessed a fairly hefty fee.
I immediately logged in to check our payment status and discovered that without any kind of notice, u. S. Bank had decided to reverse our december 11th payment. I called and spoke to a guy who told me they reversed the payment because a digit was incorrect with the account number we used (of course he was unable to prove that to me, so i had to take his word for it). We are very careful with things like that, so it is unlikely we made a mistake. I asked why they didn't contact me when the payment didn't go through and he said their Auto-dialer Is in charge of handling those kinds of things. I asked for the times of the calls and the first try was christmas eve, then another two days before new years (a sunday).
It was obvious they were deliberately calling when it was unlikely that anyone would be there. Anyway, they refused to waive the fee and i was fed up, so i told him we would go back to writing checks and hung up. What i learned: u. S. Bank is too incompetent to process an online payment. If it was true that we made a mistake in our entry (highly unlikely), u. S. Bank is too unintelligent to refer to our previously submitted financial info. And when there is a customer discrepancy like this, u. S. Bank puts an Auto-dialer In charge of servicing its clients. After this experience, i would rank u. S. Bank no higher than the Sleazy mechanic Of the financial industry. They are a burden to my company, and an embarrassment to this country.
US Bank has now multiple times removed charges from bank account then re applied them 3-4 weeks later. What i mean is i had a 100$ charge on my bank account from a purchase i made, my bank statement showed that the funds had been taken out. Then the next day when i checked my bank statement again the 100$ charge was gone. About 3 and a half weeks later the 100$ charge shows back up on my account and ends up putting me in the negatives causing me to have to pay overdraft fees.
This has happend way to many times now and the bank keeps dancing around the issue.
Do not go to this bank, they will scam your bank accounts and force overdraft fees on you.
Have never had an overdraft before but us bank is completely unwilling to offer decent customer service and refund the $25 fee over being $1. 56 overdrawn. Of course they only allow $50+ transfers into the account which i couldn't so. Therefore a single mom with two jobs would need to travel across town to deposit $2 and got smacked with a huge fee for not doing so. They seem to set things up to make it difficult to manage your account which gives them excuses to charge, and refuse to waive, fees. Avoid us bank!
