Stay Away From This Bank, Especially With A Mortgage

I was stupid to take the advice of a family member when signing onto a mortgage with Anchor Bank. I wrote a check out for .91 cents less than what our mortgage payment was and I was getting collection calls and received a notice of default in the mail.

When I finally called about the rediculous charges to my account, over $80 worth of charges for a check written only .91 cents short of the actual amount, I decided it was time to look elsewhere.

In addition to this, they said my account was $1.82 short of the mortgage payment, which was not true. If the representative would have done the math they would have found that .91 + .91 equals $1.82 and somewhere there was a double charge.

Even more frustrating is the sent me a delinquincy notice and my payment was not even applied to my mortgage, it was put into a reserve fund because they said my payment was more than $1 short (yes ONE DOLLAR) and it was their double charge error that caused this in the first place. Therefore, my credit rating suffered over all of this.

The biggest kicker, I have never missed a mortgage payment and had pristine credit when I signed the mortgage papers. I will be refinancing my home and taking my business to another bank, soon and very very soon.

No Help In Forclosure.

I was placed in foreclosure four a $400 past due tax bill. Because it had gotten to this stage the total mortgage was due in full. I couldn't refinance because of the foreclosure on my credit so they got the house and made $54200 on the sale. They are snakes! Do not get any loans from them unless you are prepared to loose them to the Bank because they will screw you!

Stay Away!

So many other banks to choose from.
