Cd Purchase

Posted by: |

Just bought a cd at this bank online was extremely easy to fill out the online form and afterwards was just as easy to join online banking everything went very smoothly and was one of the easiest banks to do this online in my 25 plus years of buying a cd online, so far so good with this bank.....

What I Wish I Knew Sooner About FNBA

ORIGINAL REVIEW: FNBA offers very competitive rates on CDs. Cool! Great! BUT, what I didn't know was that they're making it up - unsurprisingly - with super-high fees elsewhere. In my case, the shock happened when I needed to terminate a CD early; the penalty was 540 days worth of interest, and if the account hasn't been open 540 days, it's taken from the original deposit. FYI most CDs charge a 6-month interest penalty for early withdrawal.

UPDATE: Everything I said previously is true, but I have since had a lot of interaction with FNBA, and it revealed a level of customer service that my own primary bank (Ally) simply does not have. I appreciate it and am upgrading my rating accordingly.

New Process

Posted by: |

I had completed a recent transaction with this bank and they sent me a confirmation to my gmail account without security. The confirmation had routing number, account number and transaction details of both of my accounts for the ACH. In my opinion, this was not a safe way of handling confidential data so I wrote to them about this.

I was contacted by a rep from the bank shortly there after and we discussed the matter. They decided to change their process to better protect client data. I appreciate the fact that were willing to listen and adjust their process based on our discussion.

Impossible To Buy A Cd

Posted by: |

Just spent half a day sifting through various banks with reasonable qualifications & decided to give 1FBA a whack. So whilst laboring thu the CD application process I got mostly thru but they "timed "me out while in the midst of answering all the Qs. Then had the gall to tell me to start over.. This is the sixth bank attempted today. You would think the banks are trying to avoid our money
