PNC Bank - Home Equity lin of credit issues

Complaint Rating:  0 % with 0 votes
In September of 2012 I signed the paperwork to a Home Equity Line of Credit with National City Bank. They told me PNC had purchased them and that my account would transfer over to PNC. No big deal. Boy, I am regretting it now. I was told I could make extra payments to the principal and at first I could. PNC removed this option from on-line banking and when I try to go to the bank to pay the extra on principal only there are always problems. In April of last year I paid an extra 1, 000 on the principal and it was changed the same day to 842.84 principal and 157316 interest. My monthly automatic payment...

PNC Bank - rude

My friend and I parked in the nearly empty PNC parking lot in a strip mall shopping area. my friend drives a large truck and there is still snow on the ground so its hard to fit into most of the tight spots. As we approach the store, an employee of PNC rudely accosted us and demanded that we move the truck. When we told him what an inconvenience that was, he snidely remarked that it would be a greater convenience when we leave. The man then smugly waddled back to the bank with its empty parking lot, obviously satisfied that he had made us move out of principle....

I had a VISA card issued by PNC bank. I signed up to pay my bill online. Little did I know that hidden in the fine print, they say that by agreeing to pay them online rather than mail a check I agreed to no statements ever being sent. I agree I didnt read each word in the long pages one must agree to nowdays. I have about 40 credit cards and EVERY other one asks you, so you know what your agreeing to if they want to do the same. I realize paperless saves them money, but it is a good reminder to pay should you not remember when the paper statement comes so I always prefer paper anyway.

PNC Bank - Stole $100 from me

5 months ago, without notifying me by mail, email, phone or personal contact PNC Bank initiated a $20 per month "Calculated Service Charge Type Hd" against my account. I only process 2 sizable transactions per month and hence had not reviewed the account. A few days ago I received a threatening letter from PNCBank say my account was overdrawn $1.67. The overdraft was due to the dishonest service PNCBank was levying on my account without my knowledge or permission. The "Financial Specialist" at the Waterworks Branch was curt and rude. I deposited $1.67 and will close the account tomorrow. I've...

PNC Bank - Sign-up bonus is a joke.

PNC will do anything to get out of paying sign-up bonuses. Also, employees do not give full and accurate
information. I set my account up with
Elka Jones at the 56th St branch in Indianapolis. She told me that I would quality for a $200
bonus if I direct deposit at least $2000 per month. No problem. Got my direct deposit all set up and
everything was good. Almost three months
later, I still hadn't received my bonus payout.
So I emailed Elka Jones. I had to email her twice during the course of a
week to get a response, which was "I'll look...

PNC Bank - Account Closure

PNC was a good bank at one time but not anymore. My debit card was skimmed and they did nothing. I contacted the police and they found out who it was. I then opened a smart card which took 2.5 weeks to receive. Then there was no way to change the password because PNC does not know how to fix it so that you would not have to use you ss#. The branch manager was a complete idiot and started calling me names and they did nothing about it. But, they did close my account after 25 years and shut down my debit cards so that I could not access my funds. STAY AWAY FROM THIS BANK!!!...

A few years ago my sons added me to their bank accounts so I could handle their local finances as they were deployed to Iraq. Not long after their return one of them overdrew his account and PNC took the money from my account to cover the problem. I went into the bank and asked how they could play Robin Hood and steal from me to cover my sons account. Basically I was told to get lost. Last week another problem on the other sons account in the amount of 200.00 and again they took it from me and then this week the other son was 241 in debt and again it was taken from me. Last year when this happened...

PNC Bank - Lost 5,000 check

We put a check in the ATM and received an image receipt for a deposit. The check had 2 signatures on it and only one person on the account. So instead of a phone call to ask the second person to verify their identity they told us the check was deposited and then withdrawn and we can't have it back. It's now an image that is in a back room where they handle return items, either in Pittsburg or Columbus, they weren't sure. The manager assured us that she would speak to someone after 3 days and their was a slim chance that they could intercept the "image". Then the image would be MAILED...

I attempted to deposit $422 in coins and the teller told me that li had to call her a day before I attempt to bring coins to the bank. She went on to tell me that she did not have any where to put my coins. Therefore, she did not accept my deposit. The teller displayed total attitude. Her behavior was totally unacceptable and should not be alloyed in a place of business....

I asked the teller to make a copy of the check; while it was still attached to the letter it was received. The teller was very polite and completed the request. I wanted to deposit the check while receiving money back. He asked the teller next to him if that was OK; she stated that the manager would need to OK that. He repeated his co-worker’s response and stated that he would ask the manager to approve. This branch office has all glass windows, very small area. I could see the teller interrupt the manager and another staff person to ask if she would approve this money back. The teller returned...

Was told by PNC we could refinance our home, they denied us because they said no one was holding our PMI, for which we pay $200.00 per month. We have gotten nothing but the run around! They are liars, underhanded and incompetent. It seems that the ones that are still paying their mortgages on time with a ridiculous interest rate, are the ones being screwed by this company and The Obama Administration!...

My wife is an employee of PNC Bank employed as a Business Banker based out of the Prattville Branch in Alabama. Her supervisor is Les Pasternack in Birmingham. I tried to contact Mr. Pasternack but to no avail since he seems oblivious to these activities and while perhaps not condoning them has allowed them to take place.

We recently located to Prattville, Alabama as part of a corporate relocation and job transfer. My wife and I were both excited to be in Prattville and have her start this new job. Over the course of this time things have significantly deteriorated and unfortunately...

Had a teller maching at this location tell me it could not process a fast cash withdrawl, it spit my card out and then spit out a withdrawl slip. Never gave me any money. I called the bank to ask if they could do anything about it. At least, do an investigation. What I got was news to me, THEY DO NOT MANAGE THEIR OWN TELLER MACHINES. IT'S SOMEONE ESLE. I was told that I could fill out a form, and if they found some money they would credit my account. The Branch has lousy customer service and I will be pulling all my money from the bank ASAP. I work in IT, and know that a Teller machine programed...

Upon receiving a credit card invitation with a 50, 000 point bonus offer, I returned an application and used my card. I subsequently called twice to inquire about the bonus points and was told both times they would be credited to my account in a few weeks.

Today I was told I had neglected to include a registry number with my application and therefore I was not eligible to receive the bonus. I objected to being penalized because of a simple clerical oversight but your representative was adamant, insisting this could not be resolved.

I can’t believe your bank would...

PNC - Dishonoring the elderly and recently departed.
If you are elderly, dump PNC. If your parents are elderly, urge them to do so. My 88 year old father (living independently near Pittsburgh with no family nearby) had the foresight to take me to a PNC branch in March 2011 and add me to his account. In June he broke his leg. The ambulance took him away and he never saw his home of 54 years again. The injury resulted in a series of surgeries, hospitalizations, and complications that ultimately led to his passing in Dec 2011. So in June, I suddenly had to get visibility on his (very limited)...
