Poor Response And Notification

The response time is very poor when we try to communicate with this bank. The people that answer the phone are rude, and not very knowledgeable. I was given information regarding my loan with no one verifying my identity, even though it was an individual to whom I have never spoken. My loan has an adjustable rate, but I was not notified of the change in the rate per the terms of the loan and I had to call and ask for my disclosure to be sent to me.
