Useless bank.

published

The only good thing about this bank is their online banking and mobile app. After this, their branches and staffs at just the opposite of their online banking and mobile app. CBA should invest more on their human resources as they did to their app and website.

Wish I could give them 0

published

Took them 3 weeks to do something that should of taken 3 min. Then under charged me and threatened me because I owed them money. Absolute bunch of clowns. Also spent 45min on the phone while I got transferred through 4 sets of hands. Definitely wouldn’t recommend

0 compassion and Rude staff

published

They cancel my financial hardship and start the collection of my credit card debt even when I'm paying the repayments. The worst bank in Australia. I lost my Job and they don't help.

Leaving after 5 years due to Royal Commission

published

I am leaving Commbank due to the findings of them at the Royal Commission. I just cannot work with them due to their immoral way of doing business. They have the best banking app in the market. But not everything is technology. Banking is about trust. And I don't trust them anymore.

Shame on you Commonwealth bank

published

I have been with this bank 26 yrs and have never asked for any help until now during covid 19 They said I am over committed so will cancel my cards if I ask for a deferral of 2 months at 9 %.
Shame on you, Westpac is a much better bank who actually helps.

For the best bank in Australia they are the Worst

published

This bank is the richest Australian bank yet they charge account keeping fees, they invest in fossil fuels and they have no (No annual fee) credit card which would be nothing as a lot of other banks have no annual fees.

Terrible! Not prepared to offer competitive rates even after stating they would! Don’t waste your time here!!

published

I Went from a CBA investment loan to a owner occupied loan! Was told the change In comparison rate would come down to 2.80% in writing. Loan changed to owner occupier but at a much higher rate. Requested to have if decreased as per previous discussions and writings. This has gone back and forth for the last 3 weeks with very little response or feedback. Finally got told today that they cannot offer this rate as its for new how home loans only. If this is the case why wasn't that stated from the beginning? Absolutely disgusted with cba’s actions and treatment! Don’t waste your time here go elsewhere

It works and then doesn't work

published

I tried to transfer some money to my teenager, I use an iPhone 7 with a Telstra business sim within direct line of site of a Telstra Tower not 2km from a capital city CBD. Every other app worked fine, I could not log on with my thumb print, nor my access code. An hour later, Commbank returned my call and asked me to delete the app and reinstall. What the hell? It should be fixed from the back end by the developers, I should not have to waste half an hour of my time to delete and reinstall and then reinstall security settings. No happy at all.

Ceba, the most useless thing I've encountered

published

Commmbank, Ceba is the most frustrating experience I've had. Ceba is like a bouncer who refuses to provide access and help. Ceba just keeps blocking all requests to speak to someone. All I want to do is chat to a real person online. Why is this impossible to do??????

Forget it, life is too short

published

I am still on hold, on a mobile phone, having dialled direct from the Commbank app, after 35 minutes.
What a disgrace.

Question: What kind of mega-profitable private business refuses access to itself for its customers?
Answer: One that holds their customers in contempt.

After years of visiting the same branch every 2 weeks, I was refused a large sum withdrawal, I’m now closing the account

published

The account has been active for over 40 years. I’m offered an transaction account with no interest on the $600 k in my passbook account. I’m closing the account. I went to withdraw a large amount and I was refused.

Getting a loan

published

The Commonwealth bank never helps pensioners or low income earners get any loans. Always says NO. The interest rate on one's account is appalling. The bank leaves its customers POOR. The bank gets all the money, makes trillions of dollars. To do what with it? When a person DIES they do not take the money with them or their belongings.

Excellent customer service, but I've left after 29 years

published

I have been banking with CBA since the dollarmite days - 29 years - and today I closed all of my accounts.
I have to say that during that time the service was excellent. The call centre staff are helpful, the app is great, and they are one to the few banks that still have a branch in my small rural town. Even today, when I called to close my accounts, the operator was efficient and polite.
But after the Royal Commission, and my growing awareness of the amoral (if legal) practices of the Big 4, I just couldn't stay and fund that system anymore. I went and found a more responsible bank.

Commonwealth Bank

Branch manager accused me of POA abuse. Brothers used threat of loosing apartment to cohere her to bank. They were agressive & saying horrible things about the POS. Mum tried to explain that she knows but brothers ignored her, they know she fragile since dad died and she’s grieving. They know she not to stressed, threatened or anything that could another stroke but they just so agressive she couldn’t get them to stop. Clearly agetated &’upset there was no duty of care about mums emotional state. Cba branch manager continued to rattle off amounts mums still persisting that I know about that but they didn’t listen and basically ignored mum and talked amongst themselves. Mum and I share everything - our money is both mum and mine. I do buy grog cerise’s, scripts, petrol moving costs - mum pays the 1/2 utilities and I pay half or whatever. Now my reputation as well as my deceased dads name is being slandered in my home town...that branch manager did not handle appropriately but sneaky. CBA did not contact mum regarding homeloan in arrears. Never in the 3-4 months this was accumulating did the bank advise. I have tried to communicate with them regarding sale of unit hold up due pandemic and the info said homeloans would get blah blah. I want this condescending woman fired for causing undue stress worry all because she ignored what mum was trying to tell her and just spoke to men. I came home after renovating to find a broken woman who’s glue was nearly dry crumbled again and so I started gluing pieces back on. Mum gave me bills to pay so I went to post office and advised decline. So I emailed branch manager advising have utilities to pay, can you arranged a letter so mum can read instead of comprehend that her utilities, prescriptions. And home repayments have now been rectified due to mum having account where the direct debit for loan. I have sent a few detailed emails & as yet 5 days have not received any explanation for mum or have even done anything are did you arrange for So my question is:
Did the branch manager follow procedure.
Did branch manager ignore my emails advising I can’t pay debit, scripts anything as have been blocked so who buys food pays bills now.. I have no idea. She’ll disregard my emails regarding house market during covid. should you make she you have your facts in order before defaming a persons reputation.

Tried she refused to see me ignored my emails. I’ve advised my solicitor. I’ve spoken with financial ombudsman and customer connect which help resolve issues but I don’t want resolves I want an apology to my mother and the person reprimanded. But Thankyou for you’re support - I’m still shaking my head at the assumptions and defamation x

No duty of care. An aggressive branch managers who showed no duty of care of my “elderly” mother. Who sneered at me the first time I was introduced. So she accused me of POA abuse & that was incorrect but I received not apology still treated me like a criminal.
