Terrible Performance And Customer Service

Wrote a check to one of their members with an older WAMU check on my Chase account.  Have never had a problem with the older checks which are guaranteed by Chase.  The Sag clearinghouse said they could not find the account so the check was not honored and their member was charged a fee.  SAG refused to step up and take accountability for the mistake of the clearinghouse even tho I had Chase on the phone with me telling them it was a mistake.  Finally, I convinced them that if it wasn't my fault and it wasn't Chase's fault and it wasn't their member's fault, that thy should refund the fee, which they said they would do when their member called.

Given it was their clearinghouse's mistake and SAG should be taking it up with them, they would not just give the member the refund, it became that person's responsibility to call them to get the credit. 

Terrible customer service, head in the sand attitude, incompenence at every level.  I had to get on a conference call with Chase and fight with them for an hour.  BTW, it's still not all sorted out.
