Republic Bank $ Trust Tax Refund Solution unethical, scandalous, unscruppulous, thieves, con-men, preying on the backs of hard working americans Louisville Kentucky
*Consumer Comment: completetax.com and Republic Bank Direct deposit change of 19.95 for Free of charge service
*Consumer Comment: Response to Francisco, California re: Republic Bank "Rip Off"
Customer uses web site to file taxes, web site submits them to I.R.S. after acceptance if customer is due a refund the I.R.S. issues one. since said customer is due a refund he can opt to have the charges for the use of the web site deducted from it.(generally around $50-$60 bucks) so refund is sent direct deposit to this middleman bank, which in turn makes the deduction for the web site then takes their share(around$25-$30)then direct deposits into customers account the remainder of refund. everything fair and paid for.that entire process last year took approx. 2 hours give or take an hour, then your funds would be in your account.
This year however, somebody has this great idea, "HEY IF WE KEEP THIS MONEY FOR AS LONG AS WE CAN LOOK AT THE INTREST IT WILL ACCRUE,
AND WE WILL MAKE ALOT OF MONEY FOR SUPPLYING THE SERVICE TOO!
Well If you think about it maybe my $3000 that i earned honestly and have every right to have in my control immediatly isnt a whole lot to a big bank, but mine and yours and a couple hundred other hard working americans that can just wait to get what is rightfully theirs. that adds up to a nice chunck of change.I'm sure the bank will deny this is whats up. But I'm telling you now they are liars and con-men and they are out for a buck no matter what. This amounts to out and out plain theft. no ifs ands or buts. its unethical,its decieving, and I cant imagine it to be legal. I do know there is a time limit the bank has for making funds available to the bank customer. But I'm sure that is written for the allowance of clerical errors, transposed numbers,missing information & the like, understandable, not for a loophole to make people wait for their rightful property to be doled out when these con artist see fit.
If you or I pulled a stunt like this, We would land in federal prison, and rightfully so. thanks for listening.
