Concerns About PBT Business Practices

As someone who is part of dispute with PBT over their practices with respect to borrowers and guarantors, I would advise those in need of commercial or investment loans to stay away from this bank. They do not respect the privacy of the financial or personal information they are given (please don't rely on their stated privacy policies on their website because they don't actually observe them). And they do not respect their own documents either.  Indeed, they are lawsuit happy and hire lawyers to threaten their customers at the slightest sign of disagreement.  Borrowers, stay away from this bank.  You will surely regret any relationship you commence with them.  In order to post, I have to give them at least one star, but I would recommend that you just not do business with this bank.
