Bank Fires Complaining Customer

Tim walked into his bank to deposit a check, but the bank told him to get lost.

As The Hook reports, the bank froze his account because it didn’t appreciate the extent to which he complained. Tim objected when the bank refused to accept a check made out to both him and his wife because the account was in his name only. A bank rep put Tim in his place by freezing his debit card and telling him he had 10 days to close his account.

“It kind of floored me and my wife, the way we were treated,” Tim said.

The bank’s motto is “We value relationships.”
