Stay Away From Comerica

If I could give this bank a negative rating would. I opened a checking account with them in early March and used bill pay in the middle of April to pay my electric and oil bills. While these checks were in transit (via snail mail) they CLOSED MY ACCOUNT without notifying me. Of course the checks bounced. I am left to pay the bank fees and Comerica refuses to accept any responsibility for them.

Comerica Needs A Class Action Lawsuit Filed Against Them!

I was informed that I had to setup direct deposit for my SSI payments and it was recommended by the government to use Direct Express which is owned by Comerica. Before a deposit was even made, someone from Comerica cancelled out my account causing the deposit to be rejected. Another account was opened on my behalf and Social Security issued another deposit only for me not to have access to the funds because Direct Express claims they never received a direct deposit on my behalf. Social Security shows it was received and deposited into an account with my name on it but Comerica is refuting that fact. I've called several times and asked to speak with upper management and has been refused everytime with Supervisors stating I can't speak with anyone higher than themselves and has "released my calls (a polite way of hanging up) when I further insisted on speaking with upper management. Needless to say this has been going on since Feburary and now we're half way thru April with no resolution! I wld love for a class action lawsuit to be filed against this bank, with me as a participant.

Comerica Is Behind The Times

I opened an account with Comerica and decided to use their webbanking.  Little did I know that their technology is so outdated, that instead of transferring the money electronically on the day that the payment is due, they cut a paper check and put it in the mail, (yes, you read it right); they put a check in snail mail on the day the payment is due.  I could have managed my payments better myself but they don't tell you that when they are smoozing with you to open an account.  They also continued to run checks through a closed account so that they would be able to charge overdraft fees.  If there is ever a class action suit - count me in. Also, their tellers are very unprofessional - always standing around and criticizing other customers while I stand at the counter.  I wonder what they say about me when I leave. If I could post without giving them a star I would; but I have to give at least one.

Poor Customer Service

Not pleased with their customer service have many examples of it. Hours of operation are not great for those of us who work. Only good thing is they have free suckers.
