Fee Happy

I have been a customer of webster bank for many years and their customer service is horrible. They are fee happy and will not adjust any fees! They are charging me overdraft charges of $37. 00 per transaction when my account on line never shows in the negative and when i call customer service they will not reverse the charges.

Hi Josephine,

I understand your frustration and that you recently called into our Customer Care Center regarding a fee rebate. Our main goal is to ensure all of our customers our satisfied, however with reviewing your account in much detail we have rebated multiple fees over the last 6 months for you as a courtesy. I encourage you to reach out to our Care Center for helpful tips on how to better manage your account to avoid fees.

We also have a blog that has lots of helpful info. Here's a post that explains your overdraft options: http://blog.websteronline.com/adults/your-overdraft-options-the-choice-is-yours/

And we just launched our new mobile app, and have a service where you can sign up to get text or email balance alerts. Here's the info: https://www.websteronline.com/personal/products-services/online-services/account-alerts.html

Please give us a call anytime, we'd be happy to help and explain your options.

Thank you,

Dawn

Business customers beware!

We opened a business account with Webster a couple of years ago. We have had bumps and issues along the way on way too many occasions, but changing banks is time consuming when you are a business - especially for a merchant who uses an account for deposits and withdrawals of credit card transactions.

The final straw that has prompted us to leave this bank is the unexpectedly outrageous fees we just realized were being charged to our business by this bank - completely unexpected fees. Beware if you are a business! This bank goes out of its way to solicit business customers, but we did not find it business friendly at all - quite the contrary.

"you're pre-qualified for a personal loan"

I received an "invitation to save", the notice says I was "pre-qualified".

Dear Albert. Need money to pay off credit cards? offer: up to 25k with interest as low as 7.99% APR.

Well yes, I would like to pay off and close 3 cards with high interest, so I went to the local branch. They were very nice but a little shocked to see the notice. Manager said "I wish they would let us know when they send out these letters". I should have known then something was up.

In days I got a notice with my credit score 712, 10 days later I got a notice that I am declined because of excessive obligations in relation to income. My obligations are the same as when I received the notice. I wish they never contacted me. What a waste of time.
