Customers have much to say online, stating that it has the worst customer service for expats you can find. They describe the bank customer facing service support at the bottom of the bottom with processes and tools are all 10 years back in time. From a disgruntled ex-pat to the country of Germany regarding Death Bank: Germany, what the h$ll are you doing letting this bank continue operating?

And then there's Donald Trump's notorious relationship with Deutsche Bank! Trump's murky relationship with Deutsche Bank is still under congressional investigation, so the book DARK TOWERS Deutshe Bank, Donald Trump, and an Epic Trail of Destruction is necessarily incomplete. Still, the book has enough detail to make its case that Deutsche Bank was more than just one more rogue bank; it is a cautionary tale of what happens when a bank pursues profits at any cost, without being weighed down by pesky moral scruples.
Trump pitched himself as a successful businessman and an executive, even though his actual record included a string of spectacular bankruptcies and lawsuits -- including an effort during the 2008 financial crisis to sidestep a $40 million debt to Deutsche Bank by invoking a "force majeure" clause likening the economic catastrophe to riots or floods. Rather than pay what he owed, he sued the bank claiming harm to his finances and reputation, eventually settling out of court.
