Do Not Use This Bank

Very bad customer service.  They closed my local branch and lied about opening a new one.  They later closed my account with only 29 days notice and did not give me an extension when I asked for one to notify all my automatic depositers and payees.  I never overdrew or did anything negative but they must have decided I was too small for them so they dropped me.

Don't Take A Loan From Them.

When they took over Domestic Bank we became stuck with them, We would send our mortgage payments overnight as a certified check ,certified mail with signature required. Admirals Bank takes excessive amounts of time to credit payments received in the mail. For example,someone would sign for our letter on the 4th at1012 am and our payment would get credited to our account on the 17th. Meanwhile late fees and interest keeps racking up. Once again, this month, we received a late payment letter 6 days after our payment was received. This is not an isolated incident. It has been happening 70% of the time since they took over our original lender.

I read good things about their walk-in banking services, I read about how they have a beautiful office but that does not make up for the incompetence of their loan servicing department. Maybe they are just a great place for cashing a check or opening a savings account. They really need to revamp how they process payments to them.
