Run, don't walk, from this deal. About two years ago I tried to open a checking account at a local WAMU branch. I have excellent credit and no problems with my Chexsystems report. The next thing I know I'm told by the WAMU customer service rep that my application has been rejected. I was shocked and asked why. She said I had too many inquiries on my chexsystem report! So about six weeks later when I got my report it said that four inquiries had been put on it in one day, everyone from WAMU! How come? I applied for one account, not four! I then spent the next four months trying to straighten out my Chexsystems report. That happened because Chexsystems threw my original paperwork away! So I had to do it again.
Anyway, when I asked WAMU to conpensate me for my expenses like certified letters and postage and all the other problems they refused. WAMU was clearly at fault. This bank stinks and you shouldn't have anything to do with it. You are just asking for trouble.
i might be wrong but you sound kinda bitter.
your warning has come to late for i already have the card.
