Pnc Bank - Warning PNC changes terms so they can bill monthly account fees
Opened personal and business account in 2011 which had 3 segments they call wallets in each account.
In 2014 they changed their terms to charge $15 a month if the balance fell below $2000 in the spend and virtual wallets, even if you had over $2,000 in the 3 total accounts. I had well over $2000 in the total account but as I was not aware of the change funds were in the "wrong" wallet which caused me to be charged $15 a month for 25 months. I do not log in and monitor my account frequently as I opened the account with adequate funds to ensure no fees were charged as agreed, I didn't even think to check.
How does a bank change terms without signed agreement in place by the account holder?? When I contacted the bank they said there is nothing they can do as I only had 60 days to make a change. After several calls to their escalation dept they finally offered back $195 of the almost $400 they basically stole from my account.
I will be lodging a complaint with the BBB and FDIC but cannot imagine I am the only one this is happening to.
I recommend everyone with this bank check your statements monthly to ensure this is not happening to you. I think there may be a class action law suit here if any attorney was interested. Perhaps the bank is in trouble and they are looking for ways to dig out. Either way I am closing my business and personal accounts at PNC.
