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 walked into the bank, and there had to be at least 15 people, some working, some talking, I needed a signature guarantee stamp, and NOT ONE person could do it. I was told to come back later. Its a far drive for me so I called first and NO ONE had shown up to work that could do it so now I have to wait another 45 minutes, call again and HOPE someone decides to show up for work that can handle a simple signature guarantee. This is not the way to do business
Overdraft is great when you can tie it to a credit card for little to no fees. Bank of America allowed this. But ARVEST who is supposed to be great only charges 17 dollars per transaction. Thats not overdraft protection!! Its financial rape. It should be illegal. 17 dollars for a two dollar overdraft when I deposit over 8K a month in this account. Oh.. and better charge you 6 dollars a month service charge on your checking to make money on debit card swipes. Too funny. Bill pay.. better schedule ahead. BofA would send payments in time to meet due dates and deduct the day you said it was due. Oh no.. not arvest. Multiple fees for just this. Then you want to do anything. Well please come to the branch.. can't do much on-line. Need to see you even though we have your SSN and can verify your identity with other things. But come for our free popcorn and hot dogs once a hear. I had my house financed with them.. horrible - went elsewhere. BofA sold out to arvest.. bad move.. when to Capital one 360. Could care less anymore about seeing a teller - ever. On-line it will be from now on.
