I applied for a loan online per their advertisement. I had 4million assets for $100,000 loan at allegedly "most favorable rate". The no cost loan has cost me over $1000. At 4 months still no funding after two letters I was approved. They are scam artists and bank serves as a personal piggy bank for senior management! Where are the bank regulators and the SEC? Personnel were discourteous and... Read more

My experience, shortlived as it was, from the start was terrible. I received a mailing offering a (great) refi opportunity. I'm on a 15-year mortgage with 12 years left, and wanted to reduce it to a 10-year, paying more upfront to refi and get a slightly lower rate than I have. I go to the website, fill out the info, put in my invitation code, and waited to be contacted. A week later, I had... Read more

I bought a home with a Third Federal mortgage at the end of 2006. I just started my first after college job, and only put 3% down, but thought I was making a sound financial decision putting money into something I would own. Unfortunately, 2006 turned out to be a horrid time to buy a house. Interest rates fell, housing prices fell, and people like me were stuck. To add insult to injury, other... Read more

Applied for Heloc and everything looked good...Then they asked for a divorce settlement agreement (which there wasnt one) from 9 years ago. I wait about a week, then they rejected my app not over that, but that I had too many expenses??? My credit is 2 points off perfect according to their check, and I have about 700 a month "extra" money...really a measly $100 more a month for a Heloc isn't... Read more

Never get a mortgage from this Bank! They do not sell loans to Fannie Mae or Freddy Mac(aka the Government) This means you are not allowed to participate in HARP-Home Affordable Refinance Program. So if the housing market crashes again or values of your home fall, you will not be able to refinance! IF another Lender is close in rate, do yourself a favor and go with them. For a so called local... Read more

My brother passed away 2 years ago without a will. He did have mortgage insurance which paid off his mortgage but also a home equity loan with a balance of approximately $15K. The house has been vacant and I finally got a buyer. When the title company sent the settlement paper from them, they had a charge for almost $700 listed as "other". When I called to inquire what the charge was for, I... Read more

I have been a customer with them for over 25 years. I have a checking acct with an ATM attached. I travel a lot and recently have found that they will decline my card when I try to use it at restaurants. Not only is it extremely embarassing but I spoke with the bank manager and was told that I must inform them before I go anywhere out of the area. Ok, I told them where I would be and what day...
