Hey Nerdwallet Family!
Here’s another issue. I’m sorry to throw this on you! Even if you don’t approve of this, and you can send me a private message or two on some tips, I would greatly appreciate it.
Before my Huntington Bank issue (where they took $180 from my accounts without notice and based on the opinion of a lawyer I might have a good lawsuit), I banked with Chase. I enjoyed the convenience of having ATMS everywhere. It was my second bank, and the account that I had for the longest at the time (even as a young teenager!) In 2015, someone hacked my Chase account, and then Chase closed my account without notice. When I called them, they told me they couldn’t tell me why. I went to the local Chase. The manager was very mean! He snatched my card away from me and told me to leave! They sent me a letter 3 to 6 months later saying to re-open my bank account at any time, my bank account was hacked. The security team was on it, yada yada yada.
But here’s the crazy part: everytime I try to reopen it, they shut it down 3 days later.
If you say go overseas and start a new life, I completely understand. I’m not having good fortune with big bank accounts!
If Chase lets me open another account I promise I will use 2 step verification. I really want to have a Chase account to eventually get their excellent travel credit card with the points, but I have a bad (unearned) reputation from them.
