Annuitants Federal Bank, a division of BofI Federal Bank Reviews (1)
On July 9, 2013, I received an alarming voicemail message to my personal mobile phone stating, ["Hi, this message is for [redacted] (name changed to protect identity). My name is [redacted] with AnFed Bank. I was calling regarding a concerning transaction that we had recognized here. Uh, if you know [redacted], please pass this message on to her. I can be reached at ###-###-####."] I did not immediately respond to the message. Later that day my mom (with the same last name and address) called me and said the same person called her to find my stating there was a concerning bank transaction under my name and they were trying to get in touch with me. At this point, I was obviously seriously concerned that maybe someone was trying to use my personal information in another state since this bank is located in California and I am in Michigan. I called this person, [redacted], back to find further details regarding this "so-called" concerning bank transaction. He then just tried to pitch a sales speech on how he saw I have a structured settlement and that I had worked with Peachtree in selling a portion of my annuity in the past. He spent about 20 minutes going on to tell me that I needed to get away from them and come to their firm instead since apparently Peachtree was being sued for millions of dollars for bad business practices. I then told him, I was not interested at all because I had nothing but good experiences with Peachtree. I continually told him I was not interested and he kept belittling Peachtree as much as he possibly could and repeated that he could get me a much better deal. I again said I was happy with my decision already and nothing was going to alter my decision. What struck me the most is that he was calling my family members and thelling them there was a "concerning" transaction and that I need to get in touch with him right away. I find that in fact, this was only a soliciting sales tactic and unethical business practices on there part.
