AMCORE Bank / Overdraft Scam
Amcore Bank has been screwing me over for months. Wanted to post here to inform everyone that before I take my checking account somewhere else that this bank will screw you over sideways week after week after week. I have my checks direct deposited every week, and I get 1 - 2 overdraft charges EVERY week. Customer service is unhelpful and rude. This bank will hold your pending checks until your account is low, and then clear the checks making your account bounce. Example: My account one day will have a positive 50 dollars, and my direct deposit kicks in that same day. Conveniently, Amcore clears 2 checks of 30 dollars a piece from 10 DAYS AGO, just to bring my account to negative so they can ### the 35 dollar fee. Why wait to clear a check? Why does everything else clear, but these checks held? Just to bring your account to a negative balance so they can tack on the bounce check fee. It's a perfect scam, and I'm done with them.
