Good customer service

Harris bank has good customer service but is lacking in products and fees. They had a good partnership with local elementary schools to help kids start saving. This was great as it gave the community a jump start and showed that they cared. I am happy I got a chance to know the local tellers and start my understanding of savings with them.

Be careful with BMO Harris, They are trying to attract new money from outside their normal market areas. If you are in an area that has local branches, the rate is much lower.

There Are BETTER Banks To Do Business With

Posted by: |

In the first week of account opening, BMO Harris froze my account claiming they couldn’t verify my identity. This prevented me from making deposits and withdrawals for a number of days until the matter was finally resolved after numerous calls. Also, external transfers take days to post to your BMO Harris account even though the funds are deducted immediately from your transferring bank. Investors are losing interest income during these
posting delays while BMO benefits from having the use of your money -other banks are much quicker. I will be closing my account with BMO and doing business elsewhere !

Poor Customer Service - Fraud

Posted by: |

I opened checking account on-line. Simple/easy process. I had to have dealings with the branch (Channahon, IL) afterward. Terrible customer service from the bankers. Tellers were friendly and helpful. I had an instance of check fraud on my account. They did not find it, I did. I immediately changed my account log in credentials, and called customer service phone number. They do not have a direct fraud line, like another bank I was with. Customer service could not get in touch with the fraud dept. and advised I go to the branch. The banker at the branch could not get a hold of the fraud dept. either. I had to wait a day. Called branch in morning and was told my account would be frozen - ok good. I never did get to speak with anyone from fraud about what happened or give information on the investigation. They kept the account open for my direct deposit to go in. When I went into the branch to close the account, I was just going to open another. I was told i could not open another account with them and that I was a risk. Hmmm....I was the one who reported the potential fraud (turned out to be fraud), went to the branch to alert them and be guided on what to do, filed a police and FTC report. I was the victim and was treated like I was the criminal.
