Beware Bont Go To This Bank

Dont go to this bank , I agree very high fees , they dont care if you are a customer for 30 years they have no loyalty they are all about making a buck on the customer, I have been banking with the same bank even though they changed hands four times first it was albany sabings bank, then they changed to Albank, then it was Charter one, then Citizens now RBS Citizens , I actually feel bad for RBS getting involved in citizens bank . I liked RBS they always have been helpful and understanding.   Not Citizens bank if you are 50 cents short in your account instead of giving you the 50 Cents they will charge you 37.00 ,, also $3.00 everytime you dont use their atm. forget about customer service they dont care and they dont help. after all the loyalty you give them they dont care at all. I am going to take my mortgage , my checking accounts somewhere else as soon as possible < I have had it with this bank.  I will be sure to share the information with all my friends , family and the world until they get the message . I hope no-one out there fall for banking with them god help you if you do because they will rake you over the hot coals.

Horrible Online Banking

Worst banking experienece ever. I have several other online banks and have never had problems with any of them.  I have had my account at Citizen's about three weeks and have been on the phone with their rude, unhelpful staff at least 20 times already.  Transfers from other banks either don't work or take a week or more for your funds to show up.  I have had transfer disappear.  I was given a confirmation number that I was told was a ficticious number from a department that didn't exist.  The supervisor told me I must have called the wrong number and given my financial information to a stranger.  Unfortunatly, there are no branches in this area so I have to use online banking, but it SUCKS.

Access To Funds

I had several accounts that transferred from Albank/CharterOne to Citizens and I was very happy with the local bank and their customer service. In 2006 I relocated to Florida and have attempted to bank remotely with limited success. Citizens bank recently established a fee structure that is not at all consumer friendly so I consolidated all my accounts under on “Money Market Savings” account. I decided to transfer the money to a local FCU who has policies that are very consumer friendly and they still pay decent interest. This is where the nightmare started about 2 months ago. Because I can not walk up to the bank and withdraw my money I have tried the following without success. Transfer initiated at Citizens to the local FCU - failed. Transfer initiated at the FCU to extract the money – failed. And the last attempt was a bank by mail which also failed. Good thing I was not in a rush for the funds. I would not recommend this bank to anyone who can not walk up to a local bank.

Accounts Closed And Money Given To Another Person

I am assuming a happy ending to today's mess with Citizens, but I am still in shock this happened.  

My stepson went to the bank, Endicott, NY, I believe.   He closed all of his accounts.   He had 3 or 4.   I assume they gave him the money from his accounts.   They also gave him the money from MINE.....all 4 of mine.   I would not have known this happened had I not set up to receive e-mail when the balance on one of those accounts went below a certain amount.  When I went to my account online to check on the balance just mentioned, I found all of my accounts with a CLOSURE WITHDRAWAL leaving a ZERO balance in all accounts.  I just do not understand how this could happen.   I know they are working hard to resolve the problem, but I find this very disconcerting and disappointing.
