PNC Mortgage Reviews

Forced to open a bank account

I've worked with PNC mortgage for almost 15 years. The original loan was bought and sold to PNC, but no issues there. It's just within the last few months where they are forcing their online users to open a bank account in order to check their mortgage information. How is that even legal? Basically, I can't access my mortgage information any longer unless I open a financial product with the company? Once again, how is that not a financial shakedown? All bank accounts are FDIC insured so there has got to be some government regulation going on here. Wells Fargo recently got into a lot of hot water because they were illegally and unethically opening bank products for customers. I really don't see how this is any different. I don't want a bank account, why should I be forced to open one?
