Bunch Of Whiners On Here

Posted by: mishad | Apr 26, 2018

Reading through these reviews I see a common theme: a bunch of people whining that they weren't able to open an account. C'mon people, it's an ONLINE BANK. They don't know you like your local bank knows you. Of course they have to go through stricter ID verification to open an account. And for those whiners saying "oh I have such great credit, why did they deny me?!?", NEWS FLASH. Your credit score doesn't determine whehter you can open a bank account. Banks use reports like Telecheck, Chexsystems, or EWS. You could have an 800 credit score, but if you wrote a bad check when you were 18, or left a negative balance at another bank, you're not going to pass the app. Stop saying it's the bank's fault you didn't pass and get to the bottom of WHY there's an issue with your report. I was a little worried when I saw all these terrible reviews, but then I did my homework and saw that they have hundreds of reviews on other sites from actual customers, which hold more weight than disgruntled peopled who couldn't pass the app. Anyway, glad I gave them a try. Great rates, and no issues yet!

Bank 5 Connect online

i decided to use Bank 5 Connect as a way to put away money into a checking account that i can use, aside from my primary checking account, to minimize security risks and internet fraud as i was primarily going to use this account for internet shopping . i decided to use this internet bank because after some research i heard that it provided a .75% interest on checking accounts if you keep a balance of grater or equal to $100. They also have no minimum to open an account. the setup process for a new account is fairly straight forward; you enter most of the pertinent information, provide supporting documentation and make a deposit to start the account. the hardest part of opening a new account was providing document information to confirm identity, namely, you have to provide a driver's license information or other type of state issued ID. Also, providing funds for the initial deposit was a bit cumbersome as their website does not seems to want to add information from a current bank online, in fact, after multiple tries to do this i ended up having to upload a bank statement from my current bank in order to make a initial $10 deposit. The bank statement also serves as a secured confirmation of identity. after providing a deposit you open the account and it works the same as most banks, except that there are to brick-and-mortar branches so deposit and withdrawals can be made online, or you can use ATMs participating in their network to get cash out. i use this account for internet shopping so taking cash out was not a big deal. They also provide you with an ATM card you can use and a web application - which needs work, but has all the main functions available. in summary, Bank 5 Connect serves its purpose in providing me with a simple means of accessing and transfering money over the internet without too much hassles and the need to visit a physical branch at any time.

Good Rates, No ACH For External Funding Sources To Connect Savings Acct.

Posted by: web519 | Aug 1, 2018

Great rates from this bank and customer service is very responsive when calling. My only problem with this bank is there is no ability to do ACH transfers to or from your Bank5 Connect Savings Account unless you open a checking account. They seem to be able to do it when you open an account, it is strange to me that you can set up an external funding source, fund your initial deposit amounts via ACH, then no longer make ACH transfers in and out. I will deal with this for now because it is a great rate, but this would be a fantastic online bank if they could get an ACH option like every other online savings account player.

No Dice So Sad

I applied for savings about 5 days ago, but got declined, called CS and they said once you get declined there's no way to manually verify you with ID/utility bill, and they use Equifax, Chexsystems which I already had unfrozen, but CS suspected since I just got declined at another bank (I have my files frozen) it may have triggered a fraud alert of some sort. So I waited about a week, reapplied and completed the application added my external checking account info. and the site said the application will be reviewed. Waited 2 days, sent CS a message, they responded by saying I was declined, they use Transunion, and to email CS ID and utility bill before reapplying online.

I know I contributed to having my credit files frozen, but they gave me bad info and they could have asked for paperwork instead of just immediately declining me (service, I want service I tell you, I am an entitled american), with a "that's the way it is" attitude.

But I guess it's for the best, I just got approved for Vio savings with 10 more points :) c'est la vie
