Account Problem

My bank account was closed. Even though a letter I received stated it would not be until the end of the month. I came in to Rufe Snow location In Keller. I meet Natalie very nice. She gave me information on how to recovery my money. Several weeks passed and I talked with someone from the state and they told me to go back to my Bank. I came back and I met with JULIUS BOOSE very professional. This guy was awesome!!!! He checked my account information, made some calls, emailed me, called me, KEPT ME INFORMED and updated on the account status. You see I'm older not so computer savvy. He TREATED ME LIKE FAMILY. HE IS SO KIND. My funds were restored. No, Thank you BBVA Compass for JULIUS BOOSE.

Reward Checking Account Not Worth The Hassle

Posted by: |

I signed up for a checking account with BBVA after being provoked by their free Kindle Fire offer. 3 reasons why I will not be this naive again: BBVA is holding my money hostage with a fee-loaded gun ($4 per month if under $1500 in the account and $25 fee for closing the account inside of 6 months), you can't close the account over the phone, and branches are a sales trap. I did receive the Kindle Fire, but boy they are making me pay for it. The account pays no interest, so I am basically paying them for the Kindle by giving them free money. Their online banking platform is a bit arduous to navigate, as the layout and terminology can be confusing at times, and pages take longer to load. Customer Service Reps were helpful, so all in all I had a good experience.

Issues, Issues, Issues

Four months ago, my daughter deposited a check from a company she did some work for. Today, FOUR months later, she's out of town and her debit card won't work. Finally get a customer service rep who tells her that they think the check deposited FOUR months ago was fake. Not only did they take the money back out of her account, they closed the account and didn't notify her. They took every penny in her account without notice!!! How is it her fault the company was fraudulent or not?!!! There had to be a better way to handle this situation! Bunch of thieves!!!

Outside Sign A Mystery.

Posted by: |

Friday Sept. 10th, A.D. 2021
Every business since time immemorial has a sign
outside their place of business to advertise that they exist.
Think the golden arches, A barber's red and white
barber pole, a pawn shop's three balls, something ! to advertise their business and attempt to succeed in their endeavor.
I have driven by many buildings in southern California which have a sign out front that says "BBVA". That's it. I think to myself, "BBVA plumbing, bakery, dry goods store, pharmacy???"
What kind of business has a sign with no indicator of what they are selling???
No wonder they are going down the drain.
Who is in charge?
Heh people, try saying BBVA Bank. Wow.
think about that.
go figure,
Jim Cook
