Do you ever feel like a issue magnet?
« on: February 13, 2019, 05:35:02 PM »
So most have read about my house sell and thank God that's done. Now I have an issue with my bank. Chase is not in South Dakota so I need to open a new account and decided on US Bank. I needed to transfer money from savings and Chase wanted to charge me everyway except wire transfer. So I did everything to set it up and when I made the transfer they locked my account, even my internet access so I could not figure out what happened. I called and got the info and fixed it so I thought. Money was gone from savings and not in my new account either. I called to confirm the account number and everything was right. It took three days for the money to transfer, to say the least I was spazing out.

Next issue.........I ordered the Holley Sniper Quadrajet EFI and in tank fuel pump/tank kit. First they block my order for fraud, I get that fixed. The next day they charge me an additional $493, I call and they explain that the original $1944 was to block the money the $493 was the backorder parts. The $1944 was supposed to go back into my account and have a charge of shipped items for $1450 then the charge for $493 backorder parts. So today I get charged another $493, I call and they try to say the same crap and they are sorry my account is overdrawn but they can't fix what the bank does.

So I call the bank and they show the same three charges $1944, $493 and $493 I put in a dispute for both of the $493 charges since I did not get charged $1450. I'm almost to the point that I want to send all of it back and tell them to stick it!!

Thanks for reading my rant

Wait until your pipes freeze, your driveway icces up and the wife falls down, lol, I hope none of that happens to you but that's life. The way I see it is that I don't worry about stuff that can be resolved, the ones that I can't control keep me up at night.

Thanks Jack, I worry about money disappearing, pipes freezing, didn’t think of the driveway and I hope she doesn’t fall down because I’m in California for the next two weeks

Tom, that sucks I despise banks. We had a small 5 branch local bank that had been in business for over a hundred years. Started and ran mostly by the local farmers. Several years ago the president decided to start embezzling. We built several branches for them, plowed their snow, did all of the maintenance etc. Got a call 7 am one morning to meet with the VP to change all the locks. The next day the president disappeared. Not too long after the feds stepped in. I was in business with my 2 brothers, we had lots of stock in the bank as well (which had always been a very lucrative investment). Ended up losing hundreds of thousands of dollars, bank called in all loans of which of coarse we had a couple, ended up losing everything. 200k worth of equipment, 400k condo at the beach, building lots etc. Found myself at 50yo starting from scratch.

Wow, sorry to hear about your issues they make mine look like peanuts. Thanks for sharing I'm sure it's frustrating to talk about.

Sorry to hear Kerry, but when so much is involved (and most likely 100s of people) did the local officials not step in and cleaned up the mess?

It was pretty scandalous in our small town. The guy that embezzled the money disappeared quickly, rumored to be in the Bahamas. He went to school with my wife and was a stand up guy, baseball coach great community leader. Funny what greed does to a person. Before stuff really hit the fan the board of directors whom had the most invested in the bank moved their money around and came out smelling like roses. Quite a few locals lost lots of money and loans were called in all over the place. People lost their houses over this. There was talk amongst the biggest losers (of which we were included) of suing the board of directors, but that would just end up dragging things on and nothing was going to come out of. The Feds stepped in about a year after it all went down, shut the bank down on Friday night, all of the signs at the main building and branches were changed over the weekend and Monday a new bank was operating under their guidance. Seemed like 1929 all over again. Lots of heads rolled there as well. We were able to liquidate and reach an amicable settlement with them for the outstanding loans without having to declare bankruptcy, but we lost everything as well.
We all went in different directions after running a 100 family business, my brothers were smart and went to work for bigger company's with paid holidays and health care, I started back at the beginning with my own home improvement business. We had a great reputation in the community and I have built upon that. I think I am happier now and am in charge if my own destiny.

I'm glad your are happier now, who know stuff like this still happens but I guess if they were not insured and the guy left the country, not much can be done. I agree greed is a terrible thing.

I don't feel like things are going wrong very often.  A lot of things, I just don't care about, and the older I get, I care even less.  I look around though and some folks have real trouble and in some cases I feel like they are just never going to have anything go right.  I wonder how they get in that situation and what could they do to get out of it.  Why is everything happening to a certain person?  Life's hard.  Our ancestors had to worry about preserving food for the winter, and they did it themselves, and I think that kept them out of trouble.

Just a suggestion...never order anything with a debit card.  Use a credit card, you can then dispute the charges and you're never overdrawn.  Even if you can dispute if you used a debit card, they still take the money out of your account initially.

Sorry to hear the crap happened, but you'll get through it.  Who was the vendor on the EFI setup?

Life is simpler when all you had to worry about is preserving food and keeping warm. Unfortunately we live in a very complicated time with many issues that can't be ignored. I believe when things are left alone they go from good to bad, everything needs attention and maintenance. I Also believe bad things don't happen to good people but that has proven wrong many times. Some situations you simply can't get out of but I guess it's the end result that what matters the most.

It also depends on your reaction to situation. Some learn from them some don't and let it define them.
