Avoid Harris Private Bank. I have a documented trail of email from Harris VP Jack Ablin that a man I believed was "unfit" to manage my account would be removed from that account. They were supposed to actively manage a portfolio worth over $1, 300, 000.Harris not only left him in charge of my portfolio, they also refuse to reimburse me for the $80, 000 that was lost.
This Harris Private Bank is not trustworthy.
I have applied for loan modification but Harris Bank had denied my application due to low income. The second thing really irritated me was when Jessica ( the representative of Harris) hung up on me in between the conversation. I called again, and then she made one of her co-worker to answer the phone. I requested him if i can speak to Jessica but he said "she is on the phone and we don't know how long she will take." He should have asked for my contact information but he didn't. Height of ridiculousness.
THERE WAS NO NOTIFICATION OF A DEFAULT DATE SENT TO ME, THE PROPERTY OWNER. THE DEFAULT DATE SHOULD NOT HAVE EVEN GONE TO THE LAWYER'S OFFICE. IT WAS DUE TO BEING LATE, NOT DELINQUENT, ON PROPERTY TAXES ON A BUSINESS PROPERTY. THE MORTGAGE IS NOT LATE BUT WHEN THE PROPERTY TAXES INCREASED IN ONE INSTALLMENT FROM $8000 TO $17000, I GOT BEHIND ON THE TAXES ONLY. I CAUGHT UP WITHIN THE YEAR AND THEN MADE TAX PAYMENTS AGAIN THAT LEAVE ME LATE BUT MAKING MONTHLY PAYMENTS. THEY SENT A LETTER FROM A LAW FIRM TO A GUARANTOR ON THE LOAN WITH THE WRONG ADDRESS FOR MY BUSINESS AND DEMANDED PAYMENT FROM HIM. THEY ADMIT THIS SHOULD NOT HAVE HAPPENED BUT IT DID. THEY DON'T CARE THEY MADE A MISTAKE. THEY ARE A BIG ARROGANT BANK THAT ACTS AS IF THEY CAN DO WHATEVER THEY LIKE WITH NO CONSEQUENCES. THEIR MOTTO "WE'RE HERE TO HELP" IS TOTALLY FALSE. THEY DONT EVEN TRY.
This bank is making a bundle. Charge fees on top of fees. Charged us a $32 fee for a .99 itunes purchase because a check we deposited hadn't cleared. When we were in extreme financial straights, this bank charged us so many fees that the fees themselves were causing overdrafts. We scrambled to keep up, making deposits, returning purchases, etc. They were rude, coy, demeaning, and simply treated us like crap. I would never recommend this bank in a million years. I hope they go down in this crisis.
I was financed through this company by the dealership I bought my car through. Harris bank doesn't send...
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.
