U.S. Bank Five Star Screwed
This is the Web Site U.S. BANK doesn't want you to see;
In fact, they've tried really hard to to suppress this site
This Web site was started almost two years ago as simply a means to tell the world about how the Grundhofer brother's
US Bank / US Bancorp gave me a royal screwing when I was a customer of USBank. Within days of launching this site,
people were contacting me with their own U.S. Bank / USBancorp horror stories. So now this Web site is the unofficial
US Bank gripe site. This is where the truth is located. We have stories from customers about how they were screwed
by USBank. We have information from employees explaining how bad things really have been. We have links to a
wide assortment of consumer complaint sites. And we have links to media outlet and governmental agency sites that
document the many scandals surrounding U.S. Bank (and its Grundhofer predecessors).

It's all here: Customer and employee complaints; stories of consumer abuse; scandals; unethical conduct; allegations of
fraud; allegations of discrimination. And much, much more.

The whole purpose of this Web site is to give you the truth beyond the "Five Star Guarantee" marketing bullshit, so that
you can decide for yourself if you want to have anything (further) to do with USBancorp.

to make this site disappear. If you really wanted to go the the official Web site for US Bank, they are at:

U.S. Bank Gave Me A Five Star Screwing:

This is my USBank nightmare story. How they managed to botch a simple ATM transaction, then drained my accounts
with unwarranted NSF fees, and WOULDN'T GIVE THE MONEY BACK. We had to file a lawsuit to recover the money
they stole. But then, in a moment of outrageous vindictiveness, they decided to smear my credit report and forced an
expensive battle in the federal courts to get the damage undone. If they could do this to me, then they are capable of
giving a Five Star Screwing to anyone.

Didn't Get Five Star Service From US Bank?

They claim in their advertising that their service is GUARANTEED. If they fail to deliver on that guarantee, that could be
considered to be disceptive or false advertising. File a complaint with the Federal Trade Commission (FTC):

The USBank Customer Complaint Gallery:

We've been receiving customer and employee horror stories about USBancorp (the US Bank Five Star Screw) since the
day this Web site was launched.

Is US Bank mis-representing the terms of their loan and mortgage agreements? Is USBank intentionally manipulating
check and debit processing to cause the maximum number of NSFs?

unethical conduct, fraud, discrimination. This is where you can get a feel for just how badly US Bank SUCKS (won't
see any of this stuff in their corporate public relations materials).
