Yup, Camden National has finally lowered itself to the level of the national behemoth banks. Differentiating factors were the ATM fee reimbursements and free checking. Now, that's gone, based on a letter I received today. I suppose it doesn't matter a whole lot as there are other financial institutions in the Rockland, Maine area that will--including where my spouse banks. So, it's over to them. It was a good year since I gave up on TD Bank in Rockland--now there's no daylight between the two.
The worst banking experience yet! Absolutely not up to the task of Bank of America's customer base. Its going to take 2 days to just be able to sign-in online.
Not only that.... don't set up any payments in advance bills because if you say make the request for money to go to a credit card 14 days from now they take it out now and send it on day 12. I am one of those people that scheduled payments ahead to be on time and after a paycheck goes in. When I talked to customer service they said that is how it is. BS- and that does not stand for Better Business Bureau. That behavior would cause most people late fees with creditors or overdraft fees with the bank. Camden National Bank I am not the only consumer telling you, your service sucks! And now must face the inconvenience of moving my account to a new bank. Anyone with direct deposit can understand how fun that task is. Should've jumped ship when we heard Bank of America was going belly up here in the Northeast. Don't believe the Forbes report of it being a good business, unless the custormer is not the consideration in their report.
First the customer service is horrible and are unhelpful. I sent out my loan payment and they received it (not my fault try lost it) they are charging be a late fee of $62 and if I want to make sure they don't report this to my credit, I have to pay another $19. Talk about shitty people! Never ever go here! Beware!!
I own a home in Maine and live in Florida. I was needing to get money to a person who has been working on my home. He had a CNB acct, so I decided to open one so I could easily transfer money. I opened a savings acct and when i called to find out how to transfer to another of their customers, they didn't tell me that I couldn't do it with a savings acct, so days wasted. I then opened a checking acct, lots of problems with that, I won't go into. A week later, i get a call at work. I see the 207 number show up on my caller ID. He identifies himself and starts asking me questions. Why am I opening a bank acct in Maine, do I live there? I explained my story. He made me verify a lot of data, DOB, mother's mailden name, my address, etc. He asked me the amount of my deposits. He wanted to know why i transferred large amounts of money into the account. He wanted to know if I was doing an online business and if that's where the money came from. I asked him why all the questions and I became nervous that he wasn't who he said he was, how was I to know? I get that identity fraud happens everyday. This man was so rude and accusatory, I felt like I was the guilty party. I'm retired military, I pay my taxes, I work hard, go pick on someone else. I get that you're trying to protect me, but that was a bit much. If it wasn't such a pain to close accts out and switch money around, i would close these acct in a heartbeat. If you don't trust people to open accounts online, don't offer it!!! Beware of opening accts online with Camden National Bank!!!
