PNC Bank Complaint - Happy to leave PNC
Had several accounts at PNC for years. One of them was a "Free" checking account they offered a few years back. NEVER overdrawn on the account. Then, after a year, they suddenly started taking $50.00 out for no reason. I called and they said they take this fee out once per year as a maintenance fee. I told them that I never agreed to this, after all it's supposed to be a FREE checking account. They said they will put the $50 back into my account but it would take 7 to 14 days. I was not very happy that they would just take $50 without informing the customer. How many other people have they done this to?
I only used this account to pay my bills so I deposited just enough to cover my checks and nothing extra. After 2 more years, I suddenly get a notice from PNC that they're closing my account but it didn't list a reason why. I called and they told me that when I opened my account, the agreement stated the I have the right to close my account at any time without providing a reason, and they have the same right. She stated that they choose not to give me a reason. I know the reason. I didn't let them rip me off with their illegal fees on a supposedly FREE account.
I'm actually happy they closed that account because I then closed my other accounts with this crooked bank. To me, PNC stands for Pigs 'n Crooks. Anybody else have similar problems with their so called "fees"?
