City Bank / fraud/theft
I hope that no one out there ever has to do any kind of business with City Bank. Where I live that is one of the most common banks but today 8/28/09 City Bank decided to close out my fiancee's bank account without giving him any notice. It is funny the reason that City Bank or it's rep Ken in Morton gave for closing the account that it was a courtsy checking account so the only people that could use the account or deposit money into it are those who are listed on the account. Well the funny thing is that City Bank along with their reps are bold face liars, theives, and the company is a fraud. I was refunded the excessive money from my collge tutition and had it direct deposited into my fiancee's account. Well apparently when this money went in City Bank decided to close his account without notice because I still owe them money which I admit I do owe but I have been making payments when I can even if it is just $5 which proves I am trying to pay off my debt to them. Well again they closed his account and sent my paycheck, my college money, and his check back but not all his check they keep more thant 1/2 of it but he did not owe anything. Additionally the rep Ken and another rep adivised that it was in the fine print that only those who have their names on the courtesy checking account can use it well my fiancee has had the account for 2 years now all my checks have been direct deposited into his account even my huge income tax refund, and I have even gone into the local bank where we live which is in Morton and have signed my check over to my fiancee so that it could be deposited into his account so the whole no one other than the account holder can use the account is a bold face lie because City Bank started having a problem with me when I was not able to make payments but between paying them and having food, shelter, and water for my children well screw City Bank my family is more important. Please anyone stay away from City Bank additionally my best friend is facing problems with them as well she had several small charges she made to her account by way of her debit card the charges posted right away well she had to use her OOPS one day but the bank decided to move the smaller charges and post the large charge which should have been covered by OOPS first so this caused her to have to pay 6 $27 overdraft fees when orginally it only should have been one $27 overdraft fee. Please Beware of City Bank!!!
