Company: Fifth Third Bank


Company:  Fifth Third Bank 

Nature of Complaint: Vehicle loan; Taking out the loan or lease 

Result: 

Response from Company: Closed with explanation

Complaint:  I took an auto loan from Fifth Third Bank in XXXX of 2014 via a Car dealership. I was actually approve dby a different institution but the car dealership suggested I will save more money if I were to go with Fifth Third Bank. My monthly payment is {$440.00}, but I have been paying {$500.00} for the past 7 months, despite this, when I compared my loan info and payments compared to online loan calculators, I learned that I have been paying a lot more in interest charges due to the manner in which Fifth Third Bank is compounding interest, this was never explained to me either by the dealership nor by the Bank. I believe this is very misleading, pernicious and predatory practice. Can the CFPB please investigate this?. ( 1379244)

Complaint:  Both my family and myself were contacted by someone who identified themselves as investigators. They did not identify what company they were from and have been contacting us on unknown/restricted numbers. My family contacted me to express their concerns, as they though that the investigators were trying to reach me because of a criminal complaint. We feel that we are being bullied by 5th 3rd Bank and their 3rd party company, XXXX ( sp? ).. ( 1355121)

Result: 

Response from Company: Closed with explanation

Complaint:  I have a car loan through Fifth Third Bank in XXXX, OH. I cancelled my insurance through XXXX XXXX and started using XXXX in XXXX of 2014. They did not receive the change and started adding insurance to my loan. they claim that they were sending letters but I never received them. This month they placed a repossesion order on my car for non payment of over XXXX dollars. This was when I became aware of the insurance added. I sent them the documents showing no lapse in insurance and their insurance department said a full refund had been submitted. This was on XXXX XXXX. He said it could take 7-10 days to hit collections. I then called collections to see if they could talk to the insurance department and get the repossesion order stopped because I am approved for full refund, and all they kept saying was make a payment to stop it and refused to talk to the insurance department. They refused to transfer me to the insurance department, the just continued to badger me to make a payment for something their insurance deparment had approved for refund. It has now been 7 days since the approval and the repossesion order is still out for something I do not owe.. ( 1342355)
