    Poor online customer support and web site

    I have used American Bank online, started with PCBanker.com and now AMBK.com. Then my troubles began! I have a very small family partnership. We have about 5 to 10 transactions per month.

    I was drawn to AMBK because they were local. I am also in PA.

    Couple issues that I have. EVERY TIME i log into their system, i have to receive a text or email with a 10 digit verification code. EVERY TIME i login, even multiple times per day. They us O's and 0's and mix 1's and l's. It is a pain!

    Now they offered being able to deposit by phone to a certain amount. If you want to deposit a check or checks over that amount you must mail them. In the past I could print a deposit ticket with my check amount and all the account numbers inserted. Now you cannot print it from their web site, they removed it. I have to call and ask for them to email a copy of a deposit ticket and fill it out.

    There online customer service is non existent. I sent messages asking about the deposit ticket issues and 10 hours later, still no response. I posted the message at 7 AM EST.

    There interest rates are very low and reports are not easy to use. I am very frustrated with them!
