Horrible, Horrible, Horrible (Checking, Credit Card)

There's a fee for everything. They started charging me $10 a month because I didn't have $1000 in my account constantly. They charged me $2 for calling customer service! You can't do anything on BBT.com except look at your balance and transfer funds between BBT accounts. Everything else that you want to do - e.g. add an external account to transfer funds - they make you download a form and mail it in. It's absolutely ridiculous and their customer service is not helpful at all.

I tried to close my checking account and they made me wait for it to get to a $0 balance - understandable. The next day I got charged $10 for having a low balance, which made it ping my overdraft and pull $100 from my credit card - $12.50 fee for that transaction. So then I had to transfer money again to get it back to $0 balance. After finally doing that, I called in to cancel the account. They said it was done. I checked back a couple days later and my account was still open because they charged me $2 for calling customer service - which caused my overdraft to ping again! Another $12.50 fee and $100 out of my credit card. I called back pretty ticked so they gave me my $14.50 back and closed the account. Terrible, terrible experience and I still haven't been able to add an external account to pay my credit card bill online. I'm done with this!

Deceptive Loan Practices

Do not do business with this bank. They tried to reduce 100% verified income by 50%, which is illegal per the FTC under the mortgage discrimination laws (complaint was filed). Then they kept trying to add back in student loans that were consolidated, even after I communicated several times that these loans had been conolidated. There is little to no communications or call backs, the underwriting process is weak and deceptive and seems to rely on illegal practices. They then tried to push me into a high fee point loan which would have required high out of pocket costs after selling me on another product that I would have easily qualified for if they would have underwrote the loan correctly.

Lost a 15 year client over $10.00.

If I was you I would never bank at BBT. EVER!!!! I am a 15 year account holder that will be closing my account over a $10.00 fee that they charged and stated that while it was not charged correctly they will not refund it.... Spread the word!!! (Share if you would like!)
