Customer Reviews for Gateway First Bank


  • October 11, 2020

    You probably thought - as did I - that you were looking at a site that belongs to and was the responsibility of Gateway First. After all it includes their headings, selected financial statements, many pages of documentation and even this page of customer reviews.

    I dealt with three of the bank's employees who were aware of the existence of this material and, after ten hours of filling in forms and submitting data to Guardian First I was told that the bank was not responsible for the material on these pages and that all this material was a responsility of BestCashCow. The bank would not honor the CD rate that appeared in two (or more) places on these pages.

    While this may sound like the old "bait and switch" fraud - you see an ad for something you dearly want at a very good price but after you drive 20 miles to pick up the product you are told that price results from a mistake - I am not accusing Guardian of Bait and Switch. I am saying that a responsible bank should monitor and correct what they know others are saying about it and in my opinion Guardian is not a very responsible bank. In my opinion there are many more responsible banks and you should think twice of dealing with Guardian.

    I am thinking of submitting a negative yelp on Guardian.

    Online transfer limit is $2000 per transfer. If you have a lot of money to move in or out, don't use this bank.
