Terrible For The Past Three Years.

Bb&t bought out the bank i had my account with, so i just left my account open. At first, everything was fine, all problems solved quickly and politely. Then, starting in 2010, i started getting overdraft fees on my account. After waiting 45 minutes to see someone, it was discovered that a business elsewhere was processing their checks through my account. The explaination "data entry operator must have miskeyed" okay, that was fixed.

Then i got a notice through the mail that the first $100 of deposit available immediately. Again, overdraft fees. The explaination "we never got that notice" and i was told "dont spend money you dont have" excuse me!!!!!! And i do have a witness to that little episode. Now, i have been told that since i dont keep a minimum balance of $1500 in my account, and i dont have direct deposit i am being charged &10 a month maintenance fee. ( this is one notice i did not get in the mail! ) also, there is a mysterious $4. Oo a month service charge on my account that absolutely no one seems to know anything about!

When i called the west virginia attorney generals office they informed my that since the headquarters for bb&t was in north carolina, this state could do nothing about it. They are sending me a complaint form, but i know it is useless. Is bb&t trying to run all the small accounts out of their bank? How many people in this day and age can keep a minimum of $1500 in their checking account? If they want only to deal with corporate accounts and millionaires, why offer personal checking accounts at all? Well, i guess that maintenance fee adds up to quite a chunk of money, and those overdrafts can pay quite a few salaries. I am ready to go back to cash and money orders!

Transferring from Citibank to BB&T

I visited a BB@T bank in Palm Coast FL yesterday. The Citibank that I used in TX was being bought out by BB&T. I had some questions about my bills and other issues. There were three tellers and one lady sitting in a private room. No customers were in the bank. They asked me to wait a few minutes. Five minutes later, I still have not been helped. I asked if I should make an appointment. I explained my problem to a teller. She took my name and phone number and was told someone would get back to me, since my information was probably not posted yet. (She had not checked to verify) I have over $50,000 in the bank and have no checks or debit card to obtain any money. This is a very poor introduction to this bank. No one has called me yet. I sure miss the friendly service from my TX bank

Thank you, Bobby of Inman BB and T!

I recently inquired about getting 3 years' worth of statements from an equity line. Bobby at the Inman, SC branch was so very kind and prompt in his reply. As a matter of fact, he completed my request in one day's time. Bobby, you are the best!
