Fifth Third Bank / 53.comservice fees

Branch at 11005 kinsman road, oh 44104. Saving account card number 589541 [protected] and access 360 card x3228 (gave card to a bank teller)

June 1 thru august 31, 2018 i had an access 360 card with a balance of $9.99. On September 1, 2018 a $4.00 service fee was deducted from the balance leaving $5.99. On October 1, 2018 a $4.00 service fee was deducted from the balance leaving $1.99. On November 1, 2018 a $4.00 service fee was deducted from the balance leaving a $2.01 overdraft. ???????? i had tried several times during the month of October to use the card but the pin number was not recognized.

I went to the bank onOctober 31, 2018 and closed the savings account. It had a balance of $354.16. I was paid in cash $338.16. What happened to the $16.00 difference (the associate explained something to me which i did not understand...She explained it twice!!!). I was told to go to a full service bank where i could cash out the $1.99 balance on the access card.

At the branch located at 12401 CedarRoad, ClevelandHeights, oh 44106, i was told the card was expired and told to talk to manager. I then noticed and told the bank teller the card was in my husbands name and was told i probably could not cash it out. Totally frustrated, i gave the access 360 card to the teller and told her to destroy it.

I opened a checking account with Fifth Third about a month after the branch at 11005 Kinsman Road, Cleveland, Oh 44104 opened and used it for many years. After awhile, i changed it to a saving account and had a direct deposit from an annuity deposited. Recently the bank was no longer full service, but i continued to use it until all these fees starting coming out.

Fifth Third lost a dedicated customer who enjoyed having a branch around the corner from home. Fifth Third changed the function of the branch. Fifth Third took out a fee from a card that had very little money. Fifth Third deducted a $4.00 service fee one day after i closed my saving account which the access 360 card should have been attached to.

I don't understand your procedures and i didn't like the unnecessary monies Fifth Third Bank took out of my savings account when i closed it and the fee from an Access 360 Card.

    Fifth Thirdoverdraft fees

    I had two unauthorized charges on my account resulting in over $200 in overdraft fees. Fifth Third refuses to refund any of the overdraft fees resulting from those unauthorized charges. They are money grabbing and unethical. I spoke to 3 people in the dispute department and 2 in the checking department. I want everyone to know this bank is unethical and only interested in charging fees to cover their CEOs paycheck. I repeat do not use Fifth Third. I am a senior citizen and on a fixed income but that didn't seem to bother them in any way. They just don't care.

      Fifth Third BankI am complaining about the terrible experience I had getting my home improvement loan.

      Ok here it goes my home equity loan was started in May of 2018, I was dealing with the Fifth Third Bank on Hall Rd in Clinton Twp. MI. The first problem started when Elain Cox the loan office called me and said my VOE was faxed somewhere and she had no idea where. She asked me to call my HR dept and gave me a fax number to have them refax, I had no problem doing that. So the weeks go on next she calls and said could you please fax me the VOE again, no problem. Than the same day she said that Equfax would not take my VOE from the bank, so I had to call my HR again and have them fax it directly to Equfax, so I did. Then the loan took so long my condo association needed me to repay for the paperwork I had all ready paid for. That's when I started to really loose control. Then because I put up a stink my Condo Association suddenly didn't need me to repay for the form again. But to put the icing on the cake I show up to close on my loan on 08-15-2018 at 1:30, Elain Cox was not at the bank the teller stated she would be back at 3. So taking some deep breaths I ask so who am I closing the loan with, a girl named I Michelle told me all my paperwork was locked up in Elain Cox's desk and stood there looking at me. She said all I have to do is print up all your paperwork. I said after all the problems I have had I think this should have all been done. She looks at me and said your early for your appt. it was 1:27. So I just stood there and watched here print up all the loan papers, then she had to separate them. I think I had smoke coming out of my ears. So what could do but get control signed all the papers. I told her I am very sorry to be so upset, I know she just works at the bank it is not her fault. So that being said I will tell all my friends to never go to Fifth Third for a loan and what a terrible experience I had. I'm sure you could care less, but I feel a little better. I feel bad I did't enjoy the experience. Thank you for listening...Jennifer Long [protected]

          Fifth Third Bank / 53.coma birthday gift triggered a fraud investigation

          For 12 years, my husband and I have used Fifth Third. We had a joint account, each of us had personal checking accounts, and I had a savings account. My account was small with not much activity other than small purchases. My main account is with another bank thankfully.
          My friend sent $500 as a gift. Fifth Third blocked it as "suspicious activity." Then they blocked all my accounts, including the joint account connected to my husband's paycheck. It happened on a Friday, and I had to wait until Monday to call. Fifth Third does not have 24/7 support for anything other than the basics.
          It took me 6 hours to talk to anyone. I was disconnected 4 times. After viewing my account, they did not believe that the system was triggered by only $500. But they could not find anything else. So to be on the safe side, they banned me, and gave me 30 days to withdraw my money before closing my account.

            Fifth Third Bank / 53.comwithholding funds

            I have been a 5/3 bank customer for over 15 years. During that time I've held several mortgages, always paid on time.

            On March 6th one of my properties was destroyed by fire. After receiving the insurance proceeds, (4/2/18 I sent 5/3 the check overnight. The funds were applied, my mortgage paid off, the balance (in excess of $100, 000) due to me is being unlawfully held by 5/3. I have been told I'm guaranteed to get the funds back by 4/27/2018. They are holding my funds, interest free, for 25 days. They claim they need to "investigate" the funds...I could get no explanation what that means. The funds came from MetLife, cleared, were immediately applied to my mortgage balance. If the funds are satisfactory for 5/3 to apply to my mortgage, why are they not satisfactory to issue back to me?

            Meanwhile they are holding my funds, interest free, and I'm forced to pay tens of thousands of dollars toward demolition costs out of pocket.

              Fifth Third Bank / 53.comcustomer service

              Christina inside the Kroger's branch is very impolite and rude. She is rascist and have no problem showing it towards African Americans. I have been to this branch multiple times and she always rolls her eyes talk with head motions and make me wait until another representative can serve me. She holds a stigma against young black men. She declines to cash my school checks when she see the amount and she don't help me with banking at all if something is not done behind this I will contact a lawyer put on a body camera and catch her acts on camera and begging legal actions for discrimination and rascism I also will be contacting BBB because I don't think no person should have to go through that embarrassment of having a legit check declined in front of other customers I've called customer service and they confirmed my account was active with no blocks and they don't know why she could be declining my check she also referred me to go to a check cashiers afford declingin and I have had this check cashed through my bank multiple times in the past at a different branch
