Key Bank claims I didn't close a business account blackballed me with CheckSys now I can't open a bank account in anywhere Kingston New York
*UPDATE Employee: charged off account
*Consumer Comment: If you hadn't ignored their notices, you wouldn't have been "blackballed"
*Consumer Suggestion: COMPTROLLER OF THE CURRENCY
This checking account was free of service charges for the first year, until July of 2002. In July of 2002, due to a lack of clients, and therefore money to deposit, I drew what remaining money was left in the account out, and told them to close the account. Apparently they did not honor my request, and started sending me over draft notices.
I had similar problems with personal accounts with them 20 years ago and no matter how many times they made mistakes and charged their bogus over draft charges, and I brought proof of their mistakes to them they always said it was my mistake, and that is why I left them then.
Since I learned 20 years ago it is pointless to argue with them because they are NEVER wrong, I ignored notices sent by them for the bogus over draft and service charges, to the tune of about $105.00. Remember, they have always been negligent with their record keeping.
I thought they straightened out their record keeping problems and practices when my girlfriend opened an account with them around the year 2000 against my warnings to her about them. Her account was OK for about 1-2 years, then the same things started to happen to her as well.
Needless to say, in April of 2003 I found out I was black-balled by Key Bank to CheckSys when I tried to open a bank account in 2 reputable banking institutions, and can not open a bank account with ANY bank for up to 5 years or more.
My girlfriend has since stopped using Key Bank as well, because they have stolen thousands of dollars in bogus over draft charges from her account also.
I would urge anyone considering them, DO NOT make this same mistake, and also anyone with accounts in this institution should remove their money and put them out of business, and use a reputable banking institution.
