Metrobank, Racist Bank

To all individuals and small businesses that believe that MetroBank is what they claim to be, please beware that they are racists.  After having a small business account for them for approximately 7-8 months, my account was summarily closed yesterday because they found out that I am of Cuban origin and have ties to my country of birth and my family.  The manager, a most unpleasant Nazi type female called me into her office and, with doors closed, drilled me in Guantanamo style with many questions and references to Cuba.  Thereafter, she informed me that "I was identified as a risk" - Yessir!  I hope everyone out there reads this post and steers clear of MetroBank, the racist bank of Georgia, particularly those of Latino origin.

 

PS:  They also just doubled their usury fees to fleece customers so they can raise a million bucks to build their new casino.  All of you suckers out there banking with the racist bank of Georgia will be paying for the construction of that house of iniquity.  Pull your accounts now and tell them what to do with themselves!

 

I'm giving them 1 star because I can't give them less but in my book they are a minus 5.
