Not Terribly Happy With Website Of This Bank

I've had a Rewards Checking account with Atlantic Coast for over two years now.  I may be switching today to another Rewards Checking-offering bank.

I really do not care for their online checking, nor their website overall.  You are able to have your password emailed to you as clear text which seems a completely bad idea security-wise.  Also, once you do log in, it shows your secret security phrase as a banner that goes across your screen (automatically) - so if anyone is watching at all, they have your secret phrase.  Or on the off chance that someone has cracked into your account, they have that supposedly secret security info immediately.  I've also been forced to change my online password very frequently - perhaps every 90 days.  I really wish it did not offer to email you your password and parade around my security phrase.

On the other hand, I have been very pleased with the interest I have earned and the ease of meeting their requirements.  I am sad that the cap on the top interest rate balance has dropped from $25,000 to $15,000.

Enjoy!

Horrible Customer Service

I have had two very bad customer service experiences at Atlantic Coast Bank. First, my debit card information was stolen somehow (I still had my card) with many quick uses of the card on black friday. I immediately stopped the card once I saw the transactions, called the bank, and filed a police report. It wasn't until the police report was mailed to me and then mailed to them that they would after a review process reimburse me the thousands of dollars. It was more than 3 weeks before they reimbursed my money and I had to figure out other ways to pay my bills. The second happened a year later when 3 unauthorized direct withdrawls occurred from a company that I had stopped allowing direct withdrawls from causing insufficient fund charges. The company apologized for there error. However, atlantic coast not only refused to reimburse me for the fees toping over 100 dollars for these fraud charges but they also wanted to charge me another 37 dollars just to freeze my account!  It is not worth your time or safety of your money to use there services.
