I accepted a check from my neighbors for my old car. I told them a check was fine (they're my neighbors for Christ sake). I went to this godforsaken bank to cash the check (as my bank is 2 hours away, I recently moved), and these rat b******s tell me there is a $5 fee to cash the check, since I'm not a Harris customer. I asked to speak to the manager, when out comes a rude and surly woman with facial piercings. I was told that I could open an account or not cash the check, or pay the $5 fee, and I stated 'Why would I give you all the interest on my money, and then you charge people I write checks to $5 to cash them? Do you not make enough money on the customer's money you are earning interest on, or the lines of credit using the other customer's money? You are charging me to get money that isn't even yours.
I would never put my money in a place with these practices. Why should my employees pay to cash their check at the end of the week.' It was not a big check, $1200, but I stated that the interest they would have earned on my money would have far exceeded the $5 they screwed me out of... probably in less than 20 minutes they would have made their $5. The manager walked away while I was talking. Surprise.
I called customer service, No difference there. I informed them to have their attorneys watch the newspapers and Internet, as I could assure them this was going to surface. My plan is to let the rest of the US population know what a bunch of shysters this outfit is, and for it to cost them a hell of a lot more than the $5 they screwed me out of.
