Been a customer for years. Always loved the great hours, the good tellers at least here in Tulsa. They have been a good bank. My problems have always been with management here though. Granted they move on and up that's cool. What's with the attitude that the personnel have personaly been responsible for the banking system and that we the customers should feel lucky to deal with them. Has the govt taken over the banks??? Do I bank at the post office??? Arvest does have good marketing and hours etc. I'll give them that. Recvently they closed my account because they didn't like how I talked, specifically I described someone as gay looking. Is gay a dirty nasty thing or lifestyle to be muffled. Well, maybe. The assistant at 43rd and Garnett said I could not say "Gay" and I needed to leave the bank. I was not rude believe me. That day she plaed a hold on my account for $201,500 leaving my account closed and me unable to access my money (this is after they placed a hold on a small check for over a week which was the reason I visited).
Apparently the Constitution was replaced with this lady's own personal negative thoughts of gay people because I sure wasn't being ugly only descriptive.
Well no one in Tulsa cared either and I called corporate in Fayetteville to see if they could end this and I'm crossing my fingers and still unable to access my money. I wan't to go to work but really feel disturbed by this. I really thinnk the world needs to wake up.
I was going to purchase a gift card and went to a ARVEST bank branch in Bull Shoals, Ar. Requested that the address be added to the card account by the teller. The young teller stated that it CAN NOT be done, and a gift card has no room to attach a address. I related that it can be done, with the teller getting an attitude and TELLING me that it could not be done.. Went back to my car drove another 22 miles to the next ARVEST Bank branch, walked in and requested the teller to do the same.. She related that it can not be done.. I said it could be done and would bet one hundred dollars, she laughed and advised me to talk to the acting branch manager. I walked over to her desk, requested the same thing the address added to the account info. She told me it could not be done, again with an attitude.. I told her that it can be done, and maybe they could take a course on how to do it.
Left the bank, traveled another 37 miles, and walked into another ARVEST branch, walked up to the teller, requested that my address be added to my Gift card account.. Sure no problem. done in less than 3 min.s took me 1 hour driving time, three banks, and attitude from three tellers to get it right. I would leave this bank in a heart beat... my wife is good friend with a few of the tellers.
Attitude, not knowing what can be done on an account. and the I know more than you attitude or looking down at the know nothing customer.

Then buying 29 bank of america branches with the money i deposited. this my Obama tax cut that i deposited to the account and they said were robbing your account. i got me a lawyer to sue arvest bank to get my Obama tax cut from arvest bank. I tried to deposit the money with a partial deposit of $269 using a deposit slip that would reveal my hundreds to arvest bank. they scribbled out the full amount and only included the partial off the deposit slip and the partial they could have took my deposit they still did and bought other bank of america branches off of a $570 billion dollar copyright.
