I have been with this bank for four years and let me tell you they have never been there for me! First they lost my signature card so i started geting backup withholding, i called the irs and they told me they never authorized my bank to take backup withholding.... Guess what it took them two years to correct the problem. Next i had my car insurance through them and instead of it going down (never got a ticket or accident since using them) it went up!
Their excuse, texas changed their requirements, but after two years i still should have seen a decrease. Next, i applied for a loan as a private (lowest rank in the army) and of course i was denied, but four years later with a perfect banking record and stable accounts and they still denied me! They won't approve me for a credit card nor any type of loans, how am i supposed to buy a home or build credit when my own bank of four years won't even give me a chance!
Oh and the icing on the cake, i got back from a deployment and needed to buy a livingroom set that went over their spending cap, i called to lift my limit and the rep told me that maybe i should just wait until tomorrow and that it wasn't her job to give me access to my money! So, now i am searching for a new bank and i am super excited to take my money out of their bank!
My husband and i are desperate for help! My husband has been a member of usaa for years (my two active military sons are, as well), but we have been denied our deposited funds. My husband deposited his paycheck 7 days ago from today, and was initially given access to $500 to aid us during the wait. My husband was told it would take 5 days to clear. Two days later the $500 access was removed. My husband has called numerous times and even emailed but nobody will help us. My husband called his employer's bookkeeper to ask if the check had cleared, and was told that it had.
My husband had received an email from the ceo of usaa assuring him that the matter would be investigated and we would hear from an usaa rep. We had not heard from anyone from the usaa's office. Finally today, my husband was able to contact the ussa's office that could remove the hold. The woman named "erica" refused. Even after my husband explained that i'm disabled and unable to see my doctor, buy my medication, fuel to get to work, and to buy food. We are not asking for a loan, we are asking for access to the money my husband works hard for. The latest date for release is next friday, the friday my husband gets paid again. The next course of action is contacting an attorney. We are desperate for help!
They charge you $8 to overnight a new card but they wont tell you! They instead snail mail you a card, then when you cal land ask they will for a fee overnight you a card but only if you ask and that card will be an exact replica you know just in case someone stole your card enroute!!! Smart huh?
Then since its an online bank only. The FDIC will hold any check $1 over your normal everyday balance so for 2 weeks you dont get a penny from that car you sold! Smart? It gets better. Any notion you dont understand a charge automatic shutdown you dont know what something is for and call to ask automatic shutdown your in kuwait and ask a question. You guessed it you dont eat for 2 weeks. Then theyre auto and insurance is hundreds of dollars more than anyone else
