Worst bank you've ever done business with, and why.

OMG. There have been some doozies!! Since moving to the state I currently live in, I think my husband and I have been with 4 different banks, and they ALL suck. The first bank, Huntington, was recommended by several people. Why, I have no idea. They totally screwed us, because we had just moved across country, and put all our money into this account. Then we needed to buy groceries and other essentials for our new place- only to find out there is no way we could access the money right away. Even the stupid Cashiers Checks we thought were like cash, we could not access directly after depositing. Secondly, National City. I forget exactly what sucked about them. LOL Charter One Bank- they don't tell you when you open a bank account, that every time you use your bank card as a debit card (with a pin), they deduct ONE DOLLAR from your account. They tell you how great it is to swipe and sign, like a credit card, but not that if you use it as a debit card at a grocery store, you get charged out the a$$ for it. :( Then there's Chase bank. OMG. Ok, I had to call them THREE times to get a freakin' bank card ordered from them!! My husband's card can't be used with the pin he chose, and they screwed up our checks as well. What is up with banks?!

The worst I saw was First Union here in Florida. They didn't bother to tell us and we didn't see it in the fine print that all deposits, cash, check or money order was held for at least 3 business days. Yeah so if we deposited cash on Friday it wouldn't be credited till Wednesday. We didn't find out till we had some checks bounce because of this. Needless to say we weren't with them very long.

wow! where do you live???? sounds like you've had some bad experiences. With National City, I never had any problem...I had that for my business. It usually caters to small businesses maybe that's why they charged you. I would have to say Midwest bank out here. Their fees are ridiculous. I told my husband, it just took a brick to hit him over the head.

I wish I could remember what I didn't like about this National City. Must not have been anything really major, but then again, we did decide to switch banks. LOL My favorite bank back in California was Washington Mutual. but they don't have them here where I live now. :(
