Countrywide Bank Informative - CD rates at Countrywide
Countrywide advertises one rate, but then makes it virtually impossible to get the rate unless you're willing to wire them the money. I put a note in with my check saying I didn't want to open the account unless I got the rate listed, but they went ahead and opened the account at a lower rate anyway. They didn't mail me the deposit information until it was too late for me to send it back by their deadline.
Now I can't get my money back without paying a big penalty. Countrywide Bank is trying to suck consumers in to give them money to help keep their loan operation afloat. They suck!
