Fifth Third Bank - Check Hold Scam

Posted: 2014-09-05 by    Brotzy
Complaint Rating:  0 % with 0 votes
Closed on current home and immediately deposited check. Told they would place hold on funds for 10 days or until they could verify the availability of funds. We explained that we needed funds 1 day sooner to purchase new home. Bank manager assured us she would begin calling the issuing bank that day to get funds cleared. Three days later we are told "she's still trying, getting voice mail, etc". I called company that issued check and they sent me a photocopy of check that had actually cleared within 4 hours of our original deposit. Did I mention that we had several accounts with Fifth...

Fifth Third Bank - Unable a wire transfer

I have been using Fifth Third as my primary bank for personal savings and checking accounts, but had successfully negotiated a mortgage refinance with another company. I needed to wire closing fees in order to close and secure the tens of thousands of dollars in interest savings the refinance was going to give me. Fifth Third would not perform a wire transfer via phone or internet. They insisted I go in to a branch. This was an impossibility because due to a work trip I was 450 miles from the nearest branch. I had to take a cash advance from my credit card (serviced by a competing bank) and work...

Fifth Third Bank - Ohio - No sympathy for good customers going through rough time

Complaint Rating:  100 % with 2 votes
I currently have a car loan with Fifth Third Bank. I have a 6 year loan and I only have 1 year and 4 months left to pay on it. I've always made my payments on time or within the grace period. I recently have been diagnosed with something that caused me to miss 4 weeks so far of work with no pay and I'm on short-term disability. It takes a while to receive a payment from short-term disability, depending on how quickly your doctor signs the papers. During holidays I wasn't able to get an appt. with the doctor any sooner than today.

Most banks have pass a payment they...

Fifth Third Bank - Credit Applications

Complaint Rating:  100 % with 1 votes
The teller I was dealing with on my business account out-right lied to me about being approved for a credit card with $7K limit.
I asked why there was not credit check needed and she said it was because I was already approved up to the $7000 limit. All I needed to do was to sign the app and the card would be mailed to me.
The next day when I went in to get the card the manager laughed and said that they never issue credit without a credit check.
So, I snatched the app out of he hand and asked it the teller was lying or did she actually not know? The manager said she probably...

Fifth Third Bank - Indiana, Indianapolis - Cold Practices

I have not even had my checking account open for a year and they found a way to screw me over. I opened up an account with 5/3 to take up their promotion of receiving $100 if you open up a checking account with them, big mistake. The promotion had some stipulations that you had to keep the account active for a certain amount of months to receive the promotional benefit. I made the appropriate transactions and nothing. So I had to call customer service just to get the promotion they had and they acted like they didn't even know it existed. So they took care of it and that was fine after a long...

Fifth Third Bank - Ohio - Fifth Third Bank Can Be Tough To Handle If You Are Battling Them Alone

Fifth Third Bank needs to be pressured with Imminent (BK) Threats or Mediation Law and Procedures.
They are basically a giant collection agency. They purchase the distressed mortgage at Extreme Discounts from various key players in the sub-prime arena. They collect aggressively on this paper. They do not play by the rules and need to be pressed hard.

We have completed successful loan restructuring cases with Fifth Third Bank. They are all long run and brutal battles.

Fifth Third Bank - Rude customer service from total loss department

Complaint Rating:  100 % with 3 votes
I had called about my account from the total loss department and spoke with a woman named Kelly. My insurance company sent a check to fifth third and it has been not processed yet. During this period a monthly payment on my old car was due at the beginning of the month. I was told I had a grace period of 10 days and not owing any money on the account. Kelly told me that money has been accruing on my account that I will need to pay. I told her that I should not have to pay any late fees because a check was sent from my insurance company. I asked to speak to a manager and Kelly said no. I continued...

astounding lack of customer service - holiday sprint - extra dose of Bah Humbug - pick one!

Earlier today stopped by my local 5th/3rd branch drive thru for some minor banking, I requested a couple of "dog biscuits" - that's right, dog biscuits. Did not have a dog in the car w/ me and was told that they, the employees, buy them themselves. No dog = no dog biscuit.
Bottom line #1: no frigg'n dog biscuits for the dog!

I'm in the final year of a 5 year finance agreement with Fifth Third Bank. They financed my car. My husband just called to get a payoff amount and they told him that we owe exactly DOUBLE our actual balance. Nobody can provide a payment history or explain how this is possible. When I calm down I will have to seek a resolution. Any ideals on where to start?...

I'm writing today about a bank that needs to be stopped, that bank is Fifth Third Bank of Ohio. On November 4th 2011 I purchased a 2006 Chrysler Pacifica financed with Fifth Third Bank. I thought everything was fine until I started getting the Denial Letters from banks that denied us, one of them was from Fifth Third Bank stating our credit rating was unacceptable. I contacted Humes Chrysler Jeep Dodge in Waterford PA where I bought the car and read the letter and they stated that everything was fine that the car was paid for that morning.

Avoid Fifth Third Bank! Run as far away as you can from this terrible disgraceful Bank and its nasty employees. Took out a 5 year Auto Loan with them, have just 5 payments left til my 5 years of Terror with this horrible Bank ends. When the economy fell apart 3 years ago, I struggled with payments, running 5-25 days late. They terrorize you dailey on the phone, at home, place of employement and cell. When my payment reaches 10 days late, they then begin to call my neighbors every hour on the hour, starting at 8 am- 9 pm. They ask my neighbors if they know me or anything about me. They are just shameful...

Fifth third bank have been stealing my money. Every time I would mave a deposit they would withdraw the amount and take it to pay off an account that was settled years ago. I even have the settlement agreement and the “paid in full” statement.

But they are acting low and playing this game. I hired a lawyer and paying for his fees now to just let them know that I have settled my dues with the bank a long time ago.

I have been a customer of 5/3 bank since 2000 and always paid my payments, had loans with them, credit cards, etc. And now they have been doing...

DO NOT USE FIFTH THIRD BANK FOR ANY REASON!! Fifth Third Bank is a joke and a complete waste as a so-called bank.

After purchasing a new car, it took two weeks to complete my loan and have it show up in their system. There are no branches in my area, so according to their policy, I cannot open any type of savings or checking account because I must be able to go into a branch to do so. My only options to pay my car note was to set up an automatic withdrawal online bill pay service, mail in a payment, or pay over the phone with their collections department and pay a $17.95 convenience...
