After making a deposit to my First Merchants account from my personal checking account from another nearby bank - First Merchants Bank placed a 2 week hold on the amount because they claimed that the funds could not be verified; however, they offered me $200 the next day as a courtesy and there after would provide me my money in increments but the total amount would not be available for 2 weeks. I contacted my other bank and they informed me that my check had cleared the next day and that First Merchants bank had my money and would not release it. I contacted the Corporate Customer Services office and they told me that the hold was the Banks discretion to keep my money and pay me a little each day until the 2 week hold was over. My question to them was, since I only deposited one check in my account why are they dishing out my money in small increments - either my check cleared or it didn't clear. If the money from my other bank could not be verified then why are they giving me money that can not be verified?
