Webster Bank Branch Customer Reviews

Bank advised me to withdraw all of my remaining balance, then proceeded to charge me an overdraft fee.
EDIT: Since posting the following review, Webster has reached out to me to resolve this issue, and I am very pleased with the outcome.
I had a personal loan with Webster and opened a checking account with them to save a quarter of a percentage point of interest on the loan. At 17%, I paid over $1000 in interest in only 7 months on my $9900 loan, so I shopped for a better deal. When I found one, I immediately paid off my remaining balance. Because I only opened my checking account to save on the interest in the first place, I decided to close that account as well. When I went into the branch I was told that because I had pending transactions they couldn't close it, but if I wanted I could withdraw the remaining the balance and they would close the account for me the following day. Not my idea, but sounded like a good plan. The following day, a charge from 2 weeks prior for $6 posted, causing previous pending transactions to overdraft. Here I am with $80 in fees. Not bank error I'm told. Can't do anything for you I'm told. Mind you I have never overdrawn my account with them previously. Mind you, I wouldn't have withdrawn this money in the first place if I wasn't advised of this in the first place. Bank error is kind of a general term, is it not? I was told I could take my balance, minus the pending the transactions, and my account would be closed for me the next day. We did not go over a list of my transactions or discuss what cleared or didn't clear. I wasn't in front of a computer looking at my account. I took their word for it. Shame on me. They can't do anything for me? More like they won't. I feel like if I wasn't closing my account, they might treat this differently. They made $1000 on me in the previous 7 months, now any good will they might have built with me is being thrown away over $80. Any chance of me ever applying for another loan with them just went right out the window. Potential $1000's in interest lost over $80. Seems like bad banking to me.Thank you for your feedback Is this review helpful?
