Arvest is a DISASTER
2008-08-24 18:15:05
Arvest Bank is the worst bank I have ever banked with in my life! They hire kids to operate their extremely SECURE information of their cilents resulting in identity thieft, mailbox thieves being able to cash, deposit and then take deposited funds from client's accounts. The last time I deposited $1,100 CASH the funds were not recorded into my account until I called and PROVIDED a RECEIPT as proof I deposited the funds. Bank One made a bad habit of doing the SAME thing to many of their clients, embezzeling their cash deposits as I have found Arvest to do. The excuse for it was that a 'machine' didn't function properly and 'most' people don't keep their receipts. After going through this hell the Arvest bank RISK department decided to create a vendeta against me. When a CC company sent a CC check back to the bank unpaid I rushed to the bank to cover it while it was still pending. Immediately after I covered it this RISK person, Karrie Harrington, seeing the deposit was made at 10:40am closed my debit cards, my account, my husband's account after he had just received his paycheck for 2 weeks of $1,200 and shut off his debit card and account as well. When I sought help and reason for this atrocity, the main line of Arvest help called this person, he told me that I would have to call Karrie Harrington. After speaking to this Karrie, she told me she called me at 9:30am and left a message, when I checked my recorder she had called at 10:44am. This was the time right after I had made the deposit to cover my account and when she had deviously shut my account off as well as my husband's. She was very calculating just as the Arvest bank that attempted to embezzle my $1,100 deposit! I called my bank manager that opened our account and told her my husband does not carry cash, waited 2 weeks for his check, I covered the returned cc check in MY account and my husband had done nothing to deserve having his account shut down and our cards revoked. I explained to her my account had been covered, I had never let any insufficient funds surface if I could prevent it. I value my reputation. The manager spoke with Karrie and told her we needed our debit cards to take care of it. After another message I returned the call to Karrie. She was outraged that I had called the main service number on the back of my debit card to find out why it had been shut off because they called her and bothered her. Then she screamed at me for having the bank manager call her. I explained that I did not ask either to call her, all I wanted was THEM to help me reopen our debit cards for use as well as my husband's account, that she could leave mine on hold until my check cleared to cover my account. She viciously attacked me, my character, where I have ever taken funds out of my account, told me she was going to shut off my account AND leave my husband's account open because I dared to call the branch manager and the main help line. I told her she could not do that, there was no reason to close my account, I have not ever ceased to maintain it with all effort on my part in a timely manner. She responded hatefully that she could do WHATEVER she wanted, that she could use my deposits, my withdrawls against me, call me whatever she wanted, do whatever she wanted to me in a hateful tone with difiant Superiority DELUSIONS OF GRANDURE! She attacked my character, defaming my person, my intentions as well as my integrity. I am tired of being VICTIMIZED by liars behind so called badges! I was burglarized, had to change my credit cards for new ones, the thieves sole my computer, all my personal information in a home invasion, my personal items and was caught with my computer by the POLICE! I explained this to this arrogant know it all spoiled brat on the other line, she didn't care, she was going to 'punish' me she said for bothering her! I told her to forward my call to her supervisor, she told me she would AFTER she spoke to the supervisor first! "You going to cover your rear before I talk to her huh?" I asked. She kept saying the call was being recorded, I told her GOOD! Her supervisor could see what a JERK she was by her conversation with me! Needless to say, this Karrie manipulated my account to show my $4,000 deposit I made that day to head under DEBIT instead of DEPOSIT. The manipulation of my account is so grossly decharaized by this person that it is not anywhere near accurate. It shows withdrawls that I didn't make, it shows deposits as debits! DO NOT BANK WITH THIS CORRUPT BANK they will do the same thing to do!
