    The AmTrust telephone rep confirmed that they will run a background credit check just to open a savings account and too many credit enquiries could affect your FICO score.

    I just tried to do business with Amtrust Bank. They appear to be an elitist bank that only opens ANY bank account for those with a credit report that meets their criteria for credit reports to accept money from working class citizens who want to have a bank for their money. From my understanding, the minimum to open up their most basic account is $50, and if you don’t qualify on your credit report according to their rules for using people’s money for their own business investments, then you can not do business with Amtrust Bank.

    So if you’re thinking of giving Amtrust $1,000 of your earned income to open up one of their “e-money market” accounts, then you can forget it.

    It doesn’t matter what their interest rate is or how high or what they set their Rates to…if you don’t qualify with them then it doesn’t matter if you have money to bank with with Amtrust.

    But if you want a “free credit report” then try to open an account with them. But they only want your money if you fit their “credit qualifications”. Good luck! They won’t ever be doing business with me.

    Adam, is your credit really that bad? And is $50 so much for opening an account? Come on, get with it.

    While rates have been dropping lately across the industry, Amtrustonline continues to be at the top of the list when it comes to compareable type of liquid funds offered.

    As far as the comments above, it never ceases to amaze me how people can be so financially ignorant. Be responsible, keep a job, pay your bills, establish a decent credit rating, and use common sense when selecting investment instruments to reach your financial goals. I just hope Adam has some family or friends to help him out.

    Good luck people!
