5 ‘First Bankcard’ Reviews
I am an new customer to First Bankcard. I received an offer letter in the mail after purchasing my Jeep in January of 2017. As with a previous reviewer stated new card, zero interest for the first 12 months. I thought it was a great opportunity. I received my card the sometime late March early April.
I started to received several calls from the Fraud Dept. on August 1st regarding some charges to my card. I received several calls to my cell phone and work and after that it prompted me to listen to my voicemail and check my account online. I immediately noticed there were charges made from MD. Well it looks like my card was compromised by this point there was already 3 charges. When I spoke with the Fraud Dept. they NEVER MENTIONED that there were a total of 8-9 charges. They knew it wasn't me and as stated by their CSR * WE KNOW YOU DIDN'T TELEPORT YOURSELF TO MD*. I was never told of how many charges in total, I was never told of any of their processes or procedures. Each day looking at my account to re-assure myself that all the fraudulent charges were reversed. Well that didn't happen, more came. After 3 days on the phone with various CSR's I was done! I have an account that is compromised, a credit card I can't use because these jerks maxed out my credit card. And it takes these folks anywhere up to 2-9 weeks to clear up the fraudulent charges.
All and all this experience with First Bankcard has left a bad taste in my mouth. A new customer shouldn't have to go through this!
I will never do business with these folks again!! I only had my credit card for about 3-4 months.
Customer service works against their customers!
I am a customer with very high credit score and I had a Sheetz Visa for many years. A couple of months ago I left my purse with all my cards and documents at the restaurant. After one hour I found it up and returned back to pick up my staff. Everything where returned to me and also I called a Visa credit card customer service and let them know what was happened. They read me last transactions and one transaction wasn't mine. I said that I never made any reservation with Expedia. After three months they added that transaction to my account and wrote that I need to pay for it. My opinion is that they're stilling money from customers together with Expedia. They are NOT on the customers side! Be AWARE to apply a First bankcard Visa!
I had this credit card for 4 months. 0%apr for 12 months sounded great. Made a balance transfer and a couple purchases however.... I NEVER RECEIVED ONE STATEMENT from them. Late payments cancel the 0% apr so they were trying to get me to pay late. I requested atleast 8 statements including one that was faxed to me. I never received any mail statements and the faxed one was not legible. STAY AWAY from this company. I finally got fed up and paid my balance in full. Its a shame the NRA partnered with this shady bank.
I just sent them this letter.... It says it all...
You people amaze me. I received a letter stating my credit line was decreased from $8,000 to $1,000 because I used my card too much recently. Well Einsteins... First, you solicited ME to get the card last year. Second, I began using it on 12/2 and used it thru December for Xmas shopping. Third, I paid it off at the beginning of January. What u saw on my credit report was a bill consolidation loan and balances on the existing cards hadn't cleared yet. My credit score is over 700. I'm not a risk.
Who gets their credit limit decreased for using it to Xmas shop? I paid it in full in January. Over $4,700. They solicited me through overstocked.com last year. I took it because I was mega-purchasing gifts and I got a discount. I paid that balance off immediately as well They can keep their card. And their zero balance. I opt to use another competitors credit card for convenience during the holidays.
