Charter One Bank Branch Customer Reviews
Reviewed By Eldago Apr 3, 2014
I've had this bank for many years and no problems ever. All of a sudden I check my account and see a 200 dollar withdrawal I did not make. This issue was solved by reimbursing me the money withdrawn, I appreciate the gentleman for listening to my concerns at Niagara Falls blvd branch now today I go to this branch to cash my husbands check of which I'm his payee.
The lady tells me I cannot cash the check only make a deposit. So I told them last month it was cashed no problem so why is it a problem now? The other lady comes and tells me the same thing and said let me make a phone call. I'm waiting 5 minutes and no one called back, she then comes back to tell me there's nothing they can do, I left furious and cashed my check at the tops customer service for $1.00, please explain to me why the hell Tops can cash my check and my own bank cannot?
I called to file a complaint, got a call back and they tell me they spoke to the lady but she said that it was not that they did not want to cash my check, it was a system error. So tell me again, why did she not explain that information to me? I would not be upset and would understand a system error. Instead I was treated as if I was a fraud trying to cash a check I was not entitled to. Not to mention they don't have name badges. I don't need to be worried about my account for missing money or unable to cash my checks.
I am closing my account and banking with a bank that knows how to handle these situations and make me feel comfortable to bank with them because Citizens Bank has lost my trust!Thank you for your feedback Is this review helpful?
