Easy On-Line Enrollment

Posted by: |

Prior to enrolling I spoke to an CSR about required credit report; they do a soft pull using ChexSystems
I just completed an on-line High Yield Money Market enrollment. I was pleasantly surprised how easy it was. Funding the account is an ACH pull from your designated financial institution. As for the mobile phone number entry, I entered a landline number. No driver license photos required, just number and dates.

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.

Transfers Limited

Posted by: |

With the money market account, transfers are limited to a maximum of $25k at a time, and seem to be also limited to $25k per month. It would take 4 months to transfer $100k.

Horrible! Do Not Bank With CFG Bank Under Any Circumstances

Do not bank with CFG.
Do not be attracted by their rates as their customer service is terrible.
They are nice when you speak to them but that doesn't make up for losing money.

I had a 12 month CD mature.
I opted to get a check instead of paying the $7-8 transfer for whatever it cost and chose a check.
The check never arrived and now the solution is for me to fill out a 4 page PDF, pay $60 to get it notarized and email it back.
If the 2nd check gets lost, I pay another $60 and wait another month.

This is CFG's pathetic solution to the problem.
Real banks would apologize profusely for this and offer a free, overnight transfer at no cost.
They wouldn't ask the customer to pay for their screwup.
CFG is god awful.
I hope and encourage everyone who reads this to refrain from doing business with them.
I'm now off to report the bank.
My advice is when looking at CD Rates, compare the rate with a REAL BANK. Not a crap bank like this. You'll probably find that the REAL BANKS rates are pretty close to CFG and as such, should go that route knowing that you'll be paid AND if there IS A PROBLEM, the REAL BANK isn't going to charge you money to fix the problem.
I'm currently out $11,000 dollars.
