Have you incurred excessive overdraft fees even though you had overdraft protection? Were you denied funds from a US Bank ATM only to be charged a “denial” fee? Have you reported fraudulent transactions to US Bank that were never resolved? Was your checking account or credit card blocked for no reason? Are you frustrated with the lack of help that customer service provides when you are trying to fix a problem? If this sounds like your situation, you aren’t alone.
US Bank provides a variety of services to individuals and business owners such as checking and savings accounts, credit cards, loans and mortgages, and retirement services. While they provide a wide variety of services, customers often experience frustration when working with US Bank. Customers have filed 1,884 complaints with the Better Business Bureau over the past three years. Some of the top grievances that US Bank customers report include;
One of the most common complaints of US Bank customers is around overdraft fees. Customers report that they sign up for overdraft protection to prevent their checking account to go into the negative. Even though US Bank rejects the charge, it still records an overdraft fee even though nothing was paid out.
Customers also report excessive late or other fees. Most notably, customers that are unable to withdraw funds from an ATM may be charged an ATM denial fee. Customers also complain about being charged fees on transactions that they’ve disputed. In some cases, their dispute is reversed at a later date. However, when these items are added back to their account, they are often charged late fees as a result.
Customers report similar frustrations when disputing fraudulent charges. While US Bank is fairly responsive when dealing with fraudulent charges, customers experience problems when they don’t receive the necessary paperwork to complete their fraudulent claim or are unaware that it needs to be returned. This can result in the charge being added back to a customer’s account without their knowledge potentially causing the customer to overdraw their account or incur late charges.
In other cases, customers are unable to provide the proof requested to dispute the fraudulent charge. Duplicate ATM withdrawals, unauthorized access, and fake credit cards are common fraudulent claims that customers may not have proof to dispute which may ultimately result in a customer being charged.
Lack of Customer Service
A top complaint by customers is the poor service that they receive when they call in with problems. Agents are either unable to help or are unwilling to do so. Customers who report that their accounts have been blocked are often told by customer service that they are unable to resolve the issue unless the customer visits the local branch. For customers that do not have a local US Bank branch in their city, this can mean traveling a far distance to resolve the issue. In other cases, customers report that they often wait on hold for extended periods of time or are switched between departments. Promised phone calls from managers or supervisors are typically not received, leaving customers frustrated as they are unable to access their accounts or have incurred high fees.
