BMO Harris Bank? If you're looking for a bank which has never defaulted, which has always paid it's dividend yields, and has rock solid stability, then I recommend BMO Harris Bank. They are a Canadian based bank, their online banking, and mobile apps are easy to use and run smoothly. They are a simple bank. You seem like a person who just wants to put their money away safely, and maybe get a mortgage in the future. I think BMO is a no-frills option for your need.

tl;dr Someone fraudulently got into my online banking, took my money. I was told a fraud claim was filed and the investigation was underway. Nearly two weeks later, I find out that claim was never filed. I’ve never had this happen before. I didn’t ask the correct questions. I just trusted what they’ve told me. And it’s not worked out well for me.

Avoid BMO Harris. I opened a business account at BMO Harris and they messed up everything they could possibly mess up... took months to correct everything. Also, their mobile app often refused to accept my deposits for no apparent reason.

Sandy Harper Waller -

I have never had such substandard customer service from any bank as I have had with BMO Harris. Call wait time has been 10-20 minutes. ( We have made over 12 calls on this issue alone. ) Multiple and conflicting answers regarding the release of our car title from BMO agents. Very unprofessional for a bank . Customer service amounts to "i do apologize ". If there was ever a case of "the right hand not knowing what the left is doing" , it is with your bank. We will not do business with BMO again, and will advise others to do likewise.

One star is too good for this organization! Forced to open account to cash a large check drawn on their bank with sufficient funds in the account the check was drawn upon. Can’t close the account (with $25...the amount I was forced to keep in it) sitting in it for 90 days...or pay $50 to close it! Rip-off!!! Frauds!!! Discover I get charged $2 for mailing me a statement that I don’t want. Didn’t order checks or get an ATM card. Worst banking experience ever. Filed complaints with the BBB & AG’s office for Consumer Fraud.
