Dormant Account Monthly Fee And NO ACCESS To $

Posted by: Mike | May 8, 2017

Hadn't logged into my account since 10.25.16. Logged in today and found account dormant, zero access or visibility online after logging in. In calling to find out what was wrong, I was told they have been withdrawing a $5 penalty fee since November 2016, assessed monthly. And that the account is dormant.

I was never notified.

In fact, I have been receiving monthly emails clearly stating the account is active and that there were no causes for concern or penalties.

As of now, I have no access to my money. To get it back, they are sending me paperwork to close account. They want a copy of driver license to do so. All snail mail.

Horrible bank.

Do not recommend.

Negative stars if possible. I notified the Better Business Bureau, which already has received multiple complaints against them.

Here is a copy of the latest email less than two weeks old:


Dear Mr Michael,

For the monthly qualification cycle beginning 3/22/2017 and ending 4/25/2017, you did not qualify to receive the higher rate of interest and nationwide ATM fee refunds. However, you still earned the base rate of interest on your free Kasasa Cash® account.

There’s no penalty and you still have a free checking account with no minimum balance requirements. You can make money every month with Kasasa Cash.

The next time you qualify, you will receive the higher rate of interest and refunds on ATM fees nationwide.

The chart below details your Kasasa Cash activity for this monthly qualification cycle.

Monthly Qualifications Actual Results
Have at least 12 debit card purchases post and settle 0 purchases that posted and settled
Be enrolled and receive eStatement notice Yes
Be enrolled and log into online banking No login for this cycle

FFB1 Not Available

Posted by: Barmstro | Apr 3, 2013

I tried signing up for this one and the response after completing the entire process was "We are currently not accepting applications outside of our existing market areas". So this shouldn't be listed as nationally available.
