Additional Notes

Complaint: I received a letter in the mail from the First Citizens Bank located at BOX 309, Radcliff, KY 40159-0309 stating that I had an open savings account with them(current balance $ 0.00) I have never heard of this bank or been to KY. I tried calling the number listed on the letter and it goes to voice mail. Then on their website, https://first-citizens.com/ they had a link to the BBB. After finding the listed number for their main branch, (270*********, I called it and a man answered saying that it was a hospital in the area.

Desired Settlement: This seems like a scam and if not I would like a working phone number to this bank in order to find out who opened an account in my name.

Business Response:

We received a copy of your complaint submitted to the Better Business Bureau. Upon receipt of the information we investigated the problem to assist you in its resolution. First Citizens Bank provides bill payment services via our Firstnet division for both military and civilian personnel. Account information/disclosures would have been mailed to your address once we received the authorization from Pioneer (this is probably the information that you received that is referenced in your BBB inquiry). Our records indicate that you opened a bill payment account to be funded by an allotment to pay Pioneer Financial Services; the allotment savings account to pay this bill was established at the time you authorized the payment to Pioneer. The first allotment is scheduled to come into the account for the first time July 11 2013. The authorization amount is $125.44 per monthmo pay via an allotment savings account at First Citizens Bank.

The phone number listed for our bank that was detailed in the BBB form had a transposition in our bank’s phone number. The primary phone number for our bank is************. The direct line for the FirstNet (Bill Payment Services Department) is ************ (extension 108). ****** ******, Senior vice President of this department would be happy to answer any additional questions that you may have. It is her extension that is referenced above.

We hope that this resolves the issue described in your Better Business Bureau complaint. Even though, in this situation, we are simply providing the service of a bill processor, we want to provide you and all of our customers with quality service and a positive experience. If the above information is not accurate and you did not authorize payment to Pioneer, please contact us as soon as possible. If there are any questions, or if we may be of further assistance, please do not hesitate to contact us.


Sincerely,


******* *****

Additional Notes

Complaint: A $10 fee for getting my own money is absurd. I could understand if I was asking for overnight or western union - but for a direct deposit or even a check, to charge $10 is ridiculous

Desired Settlement: Refund the $10 charge

Business Response: Regarding the above referenced ID, we have responded directly to the customer. We are attaching a copy of that correspondence.

Sincerely,


Sr. Vice President

First Citizens Bank
