First Merit Bank FirstMerit First Merit is no better than thieves! New Castle, Pennsylvania
*Consumer Comment: you post on ROR
*Author of original report: Two transaction was good
*Consumer Comment: Three demerits from FirstMerit
All of this caused a snowball effect considering I had used my debit card three of more times believing I had that $70.00 in my account.
My mother has an account in the same bank. My name is on her account for emergency use only. Today she went to take care of some transactions with her account and the bank refused to let her have any of her money until she paid a $1.78 to my account. She would not agree to it until she found out she could not have her money or do any transactions with her account. She finally agreed to pay the $1.78. The bank teller told my mother she would be right back. After a couple of minutes the woman returned saying my mother would have to put over $100.00 in to my account. Considering my mother has automatic bill payments expected to go through soon she agreed to pay the amount over $100.00.
They not only stole money out of my account, they then held my mothers account hostage. My mother and I are both done with this bank. It is sad considering I have been with this bank for about 8 years and my mother has been with them for about 5 years.
