Chase Bank - Disputing charges/NSF fee reversals
OREGON -- I've never dealt with such rude, uncaring people as I've experienced with Chase's claims/disputes department, when I called to dispute charges on my checking account. I opened up a checking account with Chase when I received an insurance settlement and was treated like a queen at the local branch. Over this last year, however, I lost my job and trying to support myself and two children.
I called to dispute charges which also caused NSF charges on my account, which were reversed initially. After this, the merchant credited my account when I left town to care for my terminally ill grandmother. (I couldn't get internet access or cell service where she lives.) Chase debited my account a few days later without any notification to me, which caused numerous NSF charges and I wasn't even aware of it.
I called the claims/dispute unit and asked to have the NSF charges reversed due to their debit without notification to me; plus I had no ability to even view or check my account by phone while out of town. I was told by Chase the charges were scheduled to be credited to my account the following day; no problem! This not only "didn't" happen, but it caused even more NSF charges to accumulate... I called Chase again and was told they didn't know why the reversal hadn't happen and promised me it would happen; including reversing the "accumulative" NSF fees which occurred from it.
My grandmother passed away recently, but when I checked my account, no fees were ever reversed and even more NSF charges had accumulated over time. I called Chase Claims/Dispute unit again, was told (quite rudely)Chase wouldn't reverse the NSF charges and they were not sure why the other Chase employees made this statement, even though they could read the notes and knew these statements were made to me... When I asked to speak a supervisor, she put me on hold and then said her supervisor's "system" was freezing up and she couldn't view my account info. I was asked to call them back in 2 hours.
When I asked why they couldn't call me back, as it was a problem with Chase's system, I was told they "can't" do that. I've never dealt with a company that takes absolutely NO responsibility for the info and promises made by their own employees. I didn't have any access to internet/phone while I was providing 24 hr. care for her, which couldn't be helped. I have no regret taking care of my grandmother until she died which allowed her to stay in her own home. I DO regret setting up my account with Chase Bank
Since Nov. when I went to stay with her, I've incurred over $1400.00 in NSF charges which my kids and I cannot afford... Based on the "profit" Chase has made off of my situation you would think they'd treat me with courteousy and respect since they don't get that much profit off of their customers in such a short timeframe! I should be returning to work in a month or so, thank goodness:) Until I get back on my feet again we have no money, when there should be well over $1400.00 in my checking account. Thank you Chase, for providing such caring, compationate, trustworthy banking services for our family during our most difficult time...
