I once was very ill and desparate for a loan. I had a checking account in good standing at Fifth Third Bank at the time. I was looking online for loans (I did not realize then that most of those types of loans were not legit!). One day I get a call for a loan acceptance. I do not remember how they got my banking info, but they managed to push a bad check through my checking account, saying it was from "Wells Fargo". Before I knew what was going on, Bank protection closed my account, and said I could never open up another account there again. After being rejected by bank after bank for simple checking accounts, Citibank told me it was Fifth Third Chexsystems and/or Early Warning that kept me from opening accounts at other banks. I was the one that was scammed. Yet Fifth Third Bank treated me like a criminal; not listening to my side that it was not me who put in the bad check. I even understand being banned from Fifth Third Bank only, but to tell all other banks seems worse to me than what the scammers did to me. Any way I could talk to Fifth Third Bank Protection now to clear my name of Chexsystems and Early Warning?
