Chase Manhattan Bank Complaint - Chase is cooking the books
NEW YORK -- I see that Chase is finding new and creative ways to make a buck. They are now changing the dates on which personal checks are cleared that I write to pay my bills, so that the check clears and is withdrawn from my account MAGICALLY the same day I write the check.
I wrote a check to my accountant on April 11th, and I went to my accountant to do my taxes of course last minute, and it was in the evening that I wrote it..around 8pm...so then I see my bank statement and see that chase said the check was cleared on the 11th also, which is conveniently before my cash deposit cleared which would of more than double covered the check amount. So they decided to change the date so that a personal check clears in minutes after I write it to the accountant, in fact my accountant hadn't even deposited it yet and the check in thin air cleared. So they get to charge overdraft fees. It should of taken about 3 days for that to have withdrawn from my account.
It makes me pretty nervous that I have a bank that manipulates the dates so stupidly to make some extra money. I'm going to a branch, raising hell, getting my money back, withdrawing ALL OF MY MONEY, and I'm writing money orders for all of my bills from now on.
I hope Chase crashes and burns for its mortgage fraud, bank scams, etc.
