Good AfternoonI feel very discriminated ,disappointed and frustrated with CHASE Bank , they closing my account without my knowledge , their bad decision have provoke a very negative impact in my resent projects and difficulties to cover my personal and family needs .On February 14 , I went to the branch FL7-0377 located a*****in Lehigh Acres, Fl. 33971 around 1:10 pm with the intention to received past statements of my account requested by my realtor . Last Friday 2-10-17 , my wife went to the same branch and got those bank statements but they were not stamped neither signed .So the 14 after waiting over a hour because was busy , went a was the next person to be assist in order the sign sheet they have on the lobby , a clerk came out and take a couple who was in the lobby without look that sign- sheet , and prompt I let him know I was next , the couple argument they came first and when can't prove that by the list they lie saying somebody erase their name , I become very upset and ask the clerk to go to the bank security video to find out who is right ,is went he accept to take me first into is office but was argument in Spanish with me telling me the was no need for me to get upset , I respond to him that was his fault in the first place for not proceed like he should , and I walk out of his office and refused to be assist by him . Is when the branch manager Mr. Marsh ask me to go to his office but nothing change he told me that be loud is not the best behavior because the natural pace of the bank , I said to him I have all the right to feel anger and defend my rights ; when ask me what I need from him , I guess was a lock of understanding but he clearly told me can't provide the stamp and signature and those statements is when I call my realtor on speaker and let her know what he said , so she agree to spoke to him to explain better what I need is when he refused told to her, she hear that and said " can't believe his act is a lock of customer service". Finally after print the statements he stamp and sign every page and said can't understand in the beginning all the I need , I told him he not fit in that position , and left ; but like 10 minutes later return because missing two more pages , at tis time he call another clerk who is bilingual into the office with me and was everything very smooth , I thanks the clerk because translate and understand or a least listen how I feel .On February 16 , I learn by the realtor I need to present one more statement from the Bank and thanks God I , that day I was closer to another Chase brand (at Sunrise and Colonial in Fort Myers).

I am a special education teacher and I have an access online

I am a special education teacher and I have an access online to esped program to complete the IEP of my students as well as to review the IEPs of my students for compliance with the state of Texas. This access was given to me by special education division. Until currently they blocked my username and password ***** Im on leave and my position had been replaced by another teacher. I was on leave since Oct 2016 until now and I believed they just blocked my account for this program last week. Prior to that Im still able to access my stident's IEPs and see if theyre in compliance. Have I done any violation? What is breach of confidentiality? i have not disclose any contents of the ieps. Its their fault that they didnt block my account since I was on leave and they knew I was on leave. Its their stupidity not mine.
