I have been an ING customer for some time and I really liked the company for really no good reason. I even bought a kid’s bank from them year’s ago for Roman’s birthday. Yes, they had an online store. Their customer service people were always nice. And they never seem to charge any fees. All I had was a savings account (now drained) but also opened an account for Max with a debit card rather than use Wells Fargo, who at the time were dinging me left and right with fees (they’ve since laid off a bit). I even considered reading a BOOK about the company that I would always see in the library at Sioux City.
But it appears ING is now more and completely absorbed by Capital One. All I can say is: yuck. I don’t have a positive image of Capital One, mainly due to a past experience I had with their credit card, which I don’t use. Their commercials are fun, but it seems like I associate them with bad credit as well. I don’t know what this means for my future with using their products, but I just wanted to say: Sorry to see you go, ING. You will be missed.
