Watch out for these guys, they are extremely shady. First thing they did to me was place a 'double hold' on my first deposit, putting me 5k in the hole for a 5k deposit. Most ridiculous thing I ever heard of. Then they charged me an overdraft fee. When they made the account balance negative.
Completely avoid this deal at all costs. I sacrificed a hard pull for this, then they intentionally go and overwithdraw your account so they don't have to provide the bonus. Its a scam.
