No bounced check fees!

Posted by: wolfluvr | Jun 29, 2015

I have been with People's for about 5 years or so. There are times, very few though still times, that I have made a mistake on my account. Whether it was forgetting to subtract a withdrawal or a check. Needless to say, I ended up with a negative balance. I do have money direct deposited every month. And several times they did not charge me a bounced check fee. I know they don't if the negative amount is less than $5.00, but a couple times it was a little over the $5.00 maximum.

I want to update my previous post: I received a call from a PUB employee who found a solution and resolved the issue. It seems as though it is just a matter of getting through to the right person. If this happens to you, ask for a call back from the internal fraud department. Don't try to speak to the company the bank contracts out to because they won't help; you're not their concern. It seems that speaking with the internal fraud department will help resolve any unnecessary debit card fraud blocking issues.**Prev Post: Peoples United blocks debit card purchases from established companies: Innocuous clothing companies, long time mobile phone carrier, established merchants. Then they call you from a # that looks like a telemarketer so you don't pick up, they don't leave a message, and next you know you're out trying to use the card but you can't because they've blocked it as potential fraudulent use because you tried to buy some clothes from Chicos or something like it. So far no one has taken responsibility or steps to fix the problem because the bank contracts card security to an outside company so the company blames the bank and the bank blames the company.It's more than inconvenient and incredibly frustrating.

Call Center

Posted by: Djc | Feb 7, 2019

Have been with Peoples United for about 15yrs. Generally I am pleased however, I have observed that in the last year, the call center is never available and always requires a lengthy wait for a return call from a representative. It appears that with all things, the bottom line is more important than customer service

Mobile Banking

Posted by: fled57 | Oct 10, 2014

As of September 2014, Peoples United Bank will no longer allow Mobile Banking deposits for Money Orders. They said the change was the result of Security issues. Can't find out any details. No problem in depositing regular checks.
