Resolved MB Financial Bankfalse advertising

In March 2008 MB financial bank was publishing in Chicago Tribune and different

local newspapers the promotional ad stating " Open an MB Free Checking Account

with Direct Deposit and get $200 - with no monthly fee and no minimum balance"

I opened the account on 3/18/2008 and within one week I setup a direct deposit

from my employer. Four months later, I did not receive anything from MB bank.

I called them, and I was told that my direct deposit is too low to qualify.

No lack after contacting the corporate office.

I still have the copy of the original promotion and I did read all fine prints.

Nowhere it is said about any minimum amounts of deposit and none of the bank

employer ever told me about it or I received any written notice from the bank.

I consider this matter as a "false advertisement" and I'd like to report it

to the appropriate agencies.
