Additional Information

According to information provided to BBB, Columbia State Bank took over on January 22, 2010, and is assuming control for Columbia River Bank.

On May 20, 2011, Summit Bank was closed by the Washington State Department of Financial Institutions, which appointed the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) as receiver. The FDIC entered into a purchase and assumption agreement with Columbia State Bank of Tacoma, Wash., to assume all of the deposits of Summit Bank. Depositors of Summit Bank will automatically become depositors of Columbia State Bank. Deposits will continue to be insured by the FDIC, so there is no need for consumers to change their banking relationship in order to retain their deposit insurance coverage up to applicable limits. Customers of Summit Bank should continue to use their existing branch until they receive notice from Columbia State Bank it has completed systems changes to allow other Columbia State Bank branches to process their accounts as well.

For more information, contact the FDIC at (800) 894-3219 or at www.fdic.gov/bank/individual/failed/summit.html.

Additional Notes

Complaint: As of the 27th of Aug. 2013 my cards have been shut off for both accounts. We are ********** customers NOT Columbia Bank. I called the 1-800 number. The lady agreed the cards are shut off. She told me my balance is $52.99. I asked for explaination of that amount. There was a deposit of $1387.23 as of Aug.23, 2013. I also verified with online banking. All she did was argue with me. I understand there has been alot of change overs. I also am aware of account being overdrawn, prior to deposit on Aug. 23, 2013. Taken all into account, there is still $361.51 missing from my joint account. Thanks

Desired Settlement: I want our money found and accounted for. It belongs back into our joint personal account. I can not understand how a bank looses customers money like this. Thank-you

Business Response: Initial Business Response /* (1000, 7, 2013/09/14) */ September 13, 2013 Better Business Bureau serving Alaska, Oregon & Western Washington 1000 Station Drive Suite 222 DuPont, WA 98327 Re: Customer Complaint Case ID: XXXXXXXX, ***** ******** To Whom It May Concern, Columbia State Bank, as successor by merger to **** ***** ***** ("Bank"), received a copy of the above referenced complaint on Wednesday, September 4th, 2013 ("Complaint"). The Bank appreciates the opportunity to address **** ********'s concerns. In the Complaint, **** ******** states that both of her debit cards were closed on August 27th, 2013, and that an employee of the bank (who she spoke with by phone) confirmed the closures. However, internal records do not reflect that either card was closed on this date. Transaction histories confirm that both debit cards have been in active use since the date of the Complaint, and both remain in an open/active status as of the date of this letter. While it is difficult to sort out who said what to whom weeks after a verbal conversation; we apologize for the misunderstanding. The Complaint also states that there is discrepancy of $326.51 in the balance of one of **** ************ accounts. We have reviewed the balance calculation in regards to the account and no accounting errors were located. The Bank welcomes **** ******** to provide further clarification regarding this balance disparity (i.e. when did the Bank's balance first deviate from **** ********'s records; how was the $326.51 amount calculated; are there inaccuracies in any specific transactions posted to the account). In summary, the Bank regrets any frustration that **** ******** has experienced, and we hope we have addressed her concerns in this matter. If she wishes to furnish clarifying details regarding the $326.51 balance discrepancy, she may contact us at the phone number below. Best regards, **** ******* Vice President, Compliance Officer Columbia State Bank (XXX) XXX-XXXX Final Consumer Response /* (4200, 13, 2013/10/11) */ (The consumer indicated he/she DID NOT accept the response from the business.) No I do not. I can see with my evidence that there is missing funds from my account. The bank just wants to contact me directly!! No, I want these funds put back in my account!! The bank has no right to steal customers funds/deposits at all. Final Business Response /* (4000, 11, 2013/10/10) */ October 10th, 2013 Better Business Bureau serving Alaska, Oregon & Western Washington 1000 Station Drive Suite 222 DuPont, WA 98327 Re: Customer Complaint Case ID: 22409329 (Ref#XX-XXXXXXX-XXXXXXXX-X-XXX), ***** ******** To Whom It May Concern, Columbia State Bank, as successor by merger to **** ***** ***** (''Bank''), received a copy of the above referenced complaint on Friday, October 4th, 2013 (''Complaint''). The Complaint represents a re-opening of a previous Complaint (''Original Complaint''), which was received on September 4th, 2013. In our response to the Original Complaint, the Bank welcomed **** ******** to supply further clarification of the balance discrepancy she has described so that the Bank could accurately remediate her situation. We did not receive any clarifying details from **** ********; therefore no additional research could be performed. However, with the re-opening of her Complaint, it is apparent that **** ******** has lingering concerns. To ensure we resolve these concerns, a Bank employee will be contacting **** ******** directly. If **** ******** would like more immediate action, she may contact us at the phone number below. Best regards, **** ******* Vice President, Compliance Officer Columbia State Bank (XXX) XXX-XXXX
