Academy Bankdisputes

C Review updated:

I had reserved a post office box through the UPS store in another state. To reserve the PO Box, I had to submit my credit card information. Within 24 hours I cancelled the hold on the PO Box. The merchant decided to take it upon himself and charge me for three months of service even though I never signed for the box, nor did the reservation entail that I be charged a minimum 3 month premium for holding the box. I disputed the charge with Academy Bank. They refused to dispute the charge stating that I gave out my credit card number for a reservation, which gave the merchant the right to charge whatever they deemed necessary. So I explained that the next time I goto a restaurant, they can charge whatever they feel since I gave them my credit card number? The dispute department hung up on me. After several calls, they refused to initiate a dispute and understand the merchant had no right to charge me for three months of service. The service rendered by Academy Bank was that of a third world country. Argued, cursed at, hung up on, mind you, I deposited over 100k in my checking within one year. My point being that I'm not running after chump change in the name of being broke. I cancelled my account and went to Bank of A, where I'm treated with respect!

    Just letting you know I am very ANGRY about your hours on Sunday being closed. My roommate needed to get a check cashed and couldn't make it until today. Please start opening up on Sunday. You guys used to be open on Sunday and it was so handy. I don't like it that you are closed on Sunday! Thanks!

    Academy Bank kept an acct open. Then reported my acct to chex sys stating I owed them $82. I have since paid them that money, but 18 months later, they're still reporting to chex systems for same amount. They will not help. I've called many times, and I get directed over to collections, but collections Never picks up the phone. Only voicemail. No calls are returned. What a nightmare bank!! The worst. I can't open an account anywhere because of them. I will not give themn anymore of my hard earned money. I've already given them 82. That should've never been charged.

    I have a pending dispute . I had to sign for this company for my son who is special needs and had to give them my card information. They gave me a different card and made my checking account a positive . Thank you however I am wondering why it takes 90 days on a dispute. I have no clue who Tonight .com is . And when I try to see what it is it says underconstruction . I do not think it should take 90 days for a dispute.

    I am being charged 224 dollars in just overdraft fees I am extreamly upset because I was originally told that it was a one time overdraft fee, I have never been this negative in the 13 years I have banked at academy, and now I am being told I dont have a limit for being in the negatives. I am a single mother and this really messed me over.
