Great Bank!

I don't know why other people are rating this bank so low. I've had great customer experiences. People that are friendly and go out of their way to help. The bank fees are great! I would definitely recommend this bank to someone who wants a regional bank.

Delay With Deposits

A few months ago. Arvest bought out our bank (union bank). On more than one occasion our deposits have not posted at the end of the day. We are not talking about thousands of dollars where they would need to verify a check first. The first time it happened it didn't get credited until we went to the bank with the deposit slip. They couldn't give us a reason,

this past friday, before noon, my husband deposited $600. On saturday, i went to use the debit card for a $40 transaction. It was declined. I checked my online statement and sure enough, once again, it was not showing the deposit. So yesterday (monday) my husband went to the bank again and they had to force the deposit through. We were told that arvest has a 'out of date' system and that these things will keep happening until they get up to speed. Before they bought out union bank. Our deposits were there for use immediately after the deposit (didn't even have to wait till the end of the day)

i think we have given arvest enough chances and now they told us this will keep happening until they get updated, i am looking for another bank. Awful!

Arvest disobeys the law!

Back in 2009, the IRS sent Lindsey Mgt. Company, Inc. a third party summons requesting the bank name and account number of the account from which my rent is drafted. Well, I live with my brother and it is HIS account the rent is drafted from. I thought I was safe. However, Lindsey Mgt. told me that unless I filed a Petition to Quash the summons, they would comply. (Perhaps because my name is on the lease.) So I did and I lost. IRS got the bank name (Arvest) and the account number (my brother's). Then they send a third party summons to Arvest asking them to turn over multiple years of bank statements from MY BROTHER'S ACCOUNT! No matter that the Summons had my name on it and their privacy policy states that they wouldn't do it and even the local Harrison, AR branch mgr. said that they wouldn't, they did it anyway. Arvest bank honored a third party summons directed at me and turned over bank statements from an account I had NO signing authority over. My brother's personal privacy was violated!

Previous to this I had my account information turned over to the IRS for one year without so much as a "by your leave" within one week of the date on the Summons. The IRC gives a period of 20 days for a target of a third party summons to file a Petition to Quash in federal court, but I wasn't even afforded the opportunity. Marvelous customer service! Subsequently, I closed my account.

I WILL NEVER HAVE A BANK ACCOUNT WITH THESE SCOUNDRELS AGAIN! In fact, I can do just fine without a bank account, thank you very much!
