Well, good grief! I need to do a wire transfer from my checking account to the Title Co, so we can complete our purchase of the land. They don't have this bank around here (closest is 100 miles away). I called to do the wire transfer. Nope! Can't do it over the phone, I have to be there in person...or I can do it online, but that limit is only $25,000, so that won't work.
So, you are telling me there is no way for me to get my money transferred? Ridiculous. Someone in Haiti can wipe out my bank account (last month) with no problem, but I can't have my own money wire transferred. Or, I can go over to a bank here in town, open up an account, get them to have my funds in Chase Bank electronically transferred (without me being at Chase in person) to my new account with them, but I can't get Chase to wire it directly where I want it wired?
I tried to get a hold of the manager at my branch, but of course he is out today. Then asked for a higher up manager to talk to. Someone called back and tried to tell me same thing, I can't do it, but now she is making some calls to see what can be done. RIDICULOUS. It's not like I can't provide them personal info that proves who I am and own the account.
Still haven't heard back. Most likely I'll have to tell Chase to take a hike after having this account for 35 years. Most likely our closing on this property is going to get delayed a couple of days now. Not really a big deal to me, but I'm sure the sellers won't appreciate it.
