Why Do Consumers Contact Customer Service?
Financial institutions receive complaints about everything from poor customer service to excessive fees. Here are a few of the most common reasons consumers contact customer service:
Failure to Keep Promises
Financial institutions offer promotions; unfortunately, they don't always fulfill them. Sometimes, they end promotional rates early. When that happens, customers complain.
Failure to Fix Errors
Banks make mistakes. Sometimes they credit or debit the wrong account, or they misplace a decimal point. When a customer points out the error, many financial institutions assume the error is the consumer's. Nothing is addressed. When that happens, customers complain to get their money back.
Failure to Lower Fees
Banks seem to charge fees on everything. Overdraft protection, returned checks, ATM fees. When fees seem excessive, consumers complain.
