Quite Good, But Experience Limited

Posted by: |

I opened a MM account some months back, and it was both pretty easily and went well without incident. So, I've not tried to do anything complex, but as the previous reviewer noted, so far, so good.
Of course, I'm thrilled that CFG seems to be intent, at least over the time period I've been with them, on keeping rates near the top of the nationally available rates. I think I started out with about a 3.3% interest rate, and now they're 4.25%, a stone's throw from the top. It's been a real pleasure not to have the hassle of moving my money around to new account, with all the paperwork involved, in order to get the best available rates. No guarantees, of course, but I hope they keep this aggressive rate-matching policy up!

CFG Bank, Beyond Terrible

Posted by: |

OK, I had the scathing review here, but as a surprise to me, a CFG representative reached out to me even after hours. He also explained that they are working to improve their system, which definitely needs a lot of improving.

So maybe they will be OK after all. It is a "we'll see" at this point, so I will come back and update.

I wrote emails and left voice messages at the main call center and each branch, but no responses.

Too Many Hassles And Limitations

Posted by: |

I have had nothing but difficulty opening an account at CFG. First, it asks for A Lot of personal info about how you intend to use the account. The bank should change its name to CIA Bank. Ok, I thought, nothing wrong with added security measures. Secondly, for some reason, CFG is unable to transfer funds into my account at Wells Fargo to verify ownership. Other online banks have had no problem. So, as a result I had to add a second external account to transfer funds. But, the deal breaker is after opening my account, I find they have put limitations on the amount of funds I can transfer into and out of my account. Its $25,000/day, $30,000/mo. into the account. Out of the account and into my external account its $5,000/day, $30,000/mo. Of course, there is no mention of these limitations when opening the account. As a result of these limitations, I am immediately closing my account. I am a real estate investor. When I need my cash, I need my cash within 2 days, not a month or more. I have an account at I have money at 5 of their member banks and credit unions. None of them have any limitations on the number or dollar amount of transfers into or out of the account.
