Additional Notes

Complaint: I'm a current bank customer and I deposited funds into my active checking account, it was a third party check drawn on my fiancé of 5years ***** *****, when deposited the teller explained there would be a 2day hold which I didn't understand cause a cashier check is certified funds and both of us have proper identification and the cashier check is drawn on an actual bank well we went a head and deposit the cashier check into my active checking account and waited the two business days well today may 17, 2016 I went to withdrawal the funds which state are available to be withdrawn but for some odd reason some lady of the bank placed an additional hold but the crazy thing is my whole account is frozen which it shouldn't be cause the check cleared and the funds state they are available from mobile banking and online banking so I'm not sure what's going on I called the 1800 number and the lady that put the hold said she put a hold cause she suspected fraud wait a min if a check clears you can't hold it by law and second wouldn't it have to go thru clearances it's just not one person choice that's against the law and if my funds are available for withdrawal its against the law to refuse to release them if it was not negative account on the account

Desired Settlement: I will like the hold to be removed from my account so I can withdrawal my funds immediately

Business Response:

We are aware of this customer and the issue they are having with the deposit, and we continue to work with them. However, our Corporate Security team determined that the deposit is questionable, so it is under review by the bank at this time. We plan to follow up with the customer when we have an answer.

I have reviewed the response made by the business in reference to complaint ID ********, and find that this resolution is satisfactory to me.

Additional Notes

Complaint: I really need to switch financial institutions. They treat their customers very poorly. I tried to order something online that was close to $500. The bank thought it was unusual activity, so they put a hold on my debit card, basically I couldn't use my card AT ALL. Of course I work nights, and these communists can't manage to have someone available to call and let me know that this is happening until 5pm the next night, and when they do call me, they DO NOT COMMUNICATE very well with their other departments. The lady that called me told me that she got the problem fixed and that my card worked again. It did for one transaction at a gas station. The next day I tried to use my card and it kept declining. Luckily, the phone reps were open so I asked them why my card with $600 some in my account was not working. The man said that they had a hold placed on my card. I told him that I talked to someone about the issue yesterday and that the department told me that my card worked fine. He said that there was nothing he could do, so I asked him if there was anyone that I could contact at that hour to resolve the situation because I have bills to pay that are not getting paid. I can't get cash from an ATM either. He said that he would ask his supervisor, came back and said he could not help me. I have been putting up with this for almost 2 days now. I have a hard earned $600 in my checking that I can't use because of these bastards. No body accepts checks anymore where I'm at.

Desired Settlement: Seriously! Do the job. If one department contacts me and fixes the issue, they should communicate that to the other departments.

Business Response: We are aware of the issues this customer had with her debit card, and we did work with her to get them resolved. However, because of her work schedule working nights, we did have some difficulties in reaching her during business hours. Here’s an overview of what happened: The customer had attempted to make an online purchase on November 4 at 2:32 a.m. on The purchase was approved to go through, but that site does rate high on our potential fraud score because of past fraud complaints other customers have had with the site. Unfortunately the purchase was not completed properly and appeared to time out, so the customer tried to complete the transaction again at 3:02 a.m, which led to us putting a hold on the transaction as potential fraud. We did leave a message for the customer that morning at 8:11 a.m. on her cell phone number on file asking her for confirmation of the purchase. When we didn’t hear from the customer by mid-morning, we also called and left her a message on her home number at 10:19 a.m. The customer then called our 800 number at 5:36 p.m., but they were not able to contact the fraud department to have the hold released. The customer then called the after-hours number we’d provided her on an earlier message and they were able to unlock the card for usage. This was all resolved over the course of the day. Ideally we would have liked to help her sooner, but we weren’t able to unlock her card until that evening because of the time delay in being able to speak directly with the customer.

4/1/2014 Billing/Collection Issues | Read Complaint Details

Additional Notes

Complaint: Anchor Bank made a few errors with my loan contract and they refuse to fix it, and one wants to be responsible for the mistakes they made, I tried to contact Anchor Bank many times since 3 months ago but is always the same thing no one want to do something about this problem and every month my loan installment increase. I told Anchor Bank about these errors before I signed the contract and told me no to worry that they would fix the problem but they never did!

Business Response:

We have been working with the customer for the past few months to correct errors that were in the original loan documents that negatively impacted the borrower. In the loan approval we inadvertently miscalculated the remaining amortization, and an error was made in the initial escrow calculation. To help address the issues we involved another Spanish speaking AnchorBank employee to help with any communication barriers between the lender and customer, and we now have a new agreement for them that shows the corrected payment amount. In addition, any late fees imposed since December 2013 were waived, and we refunded the interest they were charged by the City of ******* as a penalty for late payment of the property taxes. We think we will now have a satisfactory resolution for everyone involved.
