Rude Customer Service At Bank Locations And A Catch 22 On Home Equity Loans

At Equity Bank they will never let you "pay off" your home equity in full. There is always a residual interest amount. No matter how many times you try to pay off the loan and who you talk to- it doesn't matter. I have now tried to pay off my home equity loan in full twice and they are again telling me that I owe interest on my $0 balance.
So I'm trying to close my account out and they took more interest as "payment" out of my checking account.
The location agents and managers know nothing about customer service and chose to argue with the customer instead of providing a break down of the information to find the root cause of the issue. I CANNOT WAIT to be done with this bank. Don't EVER use them.
