TOPTON, PENNSYLVANIA -- Do not open a safe deposit box at any M&T Bank.

If you do or already have one, make sure that you never close out a safe deposit box before your paid up year / annual fee is up. While most other banks will prorate a refund for the portion of the year that remains. M & T Bank does NO refund. I had a safe deposit box with them for many years. The $125 annual box fee was paid in full in January. This fee is also quite large for the non-metro location. The box was closed out in mid-March --- approximately $90 they keep. The "theft" of this is that they can still rent the box during the time that remains of my $90 and make an additional $90. The "customer service" staff just kept repeating the "company line." What a convenient way to make a substantial profit. This is true double dipping.
I called M & T bank to discuss some over draft fees I was charged with. I spoke to a customer services supervisor who began to raise her voice at me. I told her I did not like the way she was talking to me, and she said "well I'm trying to explain to you" When I asked for her managers name she sacastically answered that she could give me the name of the CEO. Completely unprofessional!

Recently I was hit with a “debit fee” when I transferred my money from M&T bank to another bank online. They never have any fees like that. And as far as I know, other banks (PNC, Bank of America,…) do not have any “debit fee” like that too. After contacting M&T bank, I was let know that they sent me a secured message in M&T system about 3 weeks before the fee started to apply.

- M&T not send me a physical letter to my address to let me know any fee structure change. I do NOT receive my statement online. What will happen to the customers that does not use M&T online banking. How do they suppose to know that?
- If M&T wants to save cost to send letter, at least M&T should call me or email an message to my email address
I am closing all of my 3 year old accounts with M&T today and switch my direct deposit to PNC bank.
M&T mortgage consumer beware.

If you are thinking of a mortgage, you must definitely avoid M&T bank. They will put clauses in their documents making your life miserable and threaten you later on to do all kinds of things. In addition, even if you are late one day in ten years to send your payment (within of course the grace period) they will start calling you with automated systems! I was very surprised to get this treatment after so many years. Be absolutely careful of their mortgage clauses!
Do not just depend on my opinion. Search the web for related complains. They are a fourth grade bank of unprofessionals to deal with. I am in the process of refinancing and go with a better bank.
