Chase jails customer




Chase Bank Reportedly Has Man Jailed Over Check They Issued Him (VIDEO)

Chase Bank Reportedly Has Man Jailed Over Check They Issued Him

Quote:
Last June, 28-year-old Ikenna Njoku of Auburn, Washington was reportedly imprisoned for four days after trying to cash a Chase check the bank itself had issued to him.

Mr. Njoku, who at the time claims he had become a new homeowner, qualified for the first-time home buyer rebate on his tax return, for a total of $8,463.21 after overdraft fees, reports King 5 Seattle.

When Chase mailed him the check, he says that he sought to cash it as quickly as possible. But when he arrived at the Chase bank, the banker allegedly thought the check, and his claim that he owned a home, were fraudulent.

"I was embarrassed," Njoku told King 5. "She asked me what I did for a living. Asked me where I got the check from, looked me up and down -- like 'you just bought a house in Auburn, really?' She didn't believe that."

According to Mr. Njoku, he left the bank and was told by customer service that he should come back the next morning. When he did, the bank had phoned the police, who subsequently arrested him for forgery.

Njoku remained in jail for four days. When the bank realized it had made a mistake, they left a voicemail message with the detective handling the case, but unfortunately for Mr. Njoku, it was the detective's day off. No further attempts were made by the bank to correct the error, the local police department confirmed to King 5.

The check that had landed him in prison was reportedly seized as evidence and he lost his job for failing to show up while in prison.

I've had two Chase checking accounts for several years. I keep the minimum $ amount in both accounts, complete most of my bill paying on line, and have no problem with them at all. Then again, things could be different if I owed them money on a loan, but since I don't, I have nothing bad to say.

I've had B of A & Chase as my banks for years. Actually Chase took over my bank which was one of the first to fail. I keep B of A for small online purchases. I have no luck at all choosing banks.

What a joke. I left Chase as soon as they bought my bank. I ventured to Wells Fargo and BoA as well. Both suck and treat their clients like crap.

They make money off people keeping their money at their institution, you'd think they'd be better at customer service.

I like my credit union. Never had a problem. All issues have been worked out in a very timely manner. Their tellers are all courteous. They are up front about fees, etc. I love them. <3

I had Wells Fargo for a little while and they were by far the worst people I have ever dealt
with, they are still haunting me and it has been 5 years since I had an acct with them.

B of A was good when I 1st started with them but they just went down hill at the speed of light.
