I have dealt with Peoples Bank as my name is on the account with my parents

I have been to the bank in person and have also called the bank to clarify the 7.00 per month they charge on my parents account to cash my fathers government retirement check. They said if it was a payroll check they would not charge, its a retirment check . I was assured that they would not charge this fee again , but guess what they did...

I hate this bank and going to move all the money to another bank so I do not have to deal with them again

Customer service is awful.

What Happened People's Connecticut??

I have been a People's Bank account holder for years now. I have noticed a huge SCAM to charge overdraft fees. I bank online everyday, and have had funds shown to be "Available" for use. While out for the day, I used my debit card twice for two items totaling less than five dollars. As it turns out, the funds were NOT available, and I was hit with two consecutive 37 dollar charges for overdraft. I contacted the bank via email, and the response was received three business days later, basically stating that I should keep track of my available funds, when their system indicated that they were available. Needless to say, no reversal of the charges. It cost me 38.79 for a bottle of water, and 39.50 for a Gatorade. Best drinks I ever had. Thanks People's (for nothing). I am leaving People's now, and it's too bad for them. Investments paid off HUGE, and I'll do business elsewhere. Enjoy the 74 dollars in OD fees. You'll get no more of my money, do to lousy CSR service.

Mickey Mouse Staff

I've had a small business account for four years with no problems. Then I get a letter in the mail that the balance has been raised from 500 to one thousand. went to the branch and a very young and rude kid said if I did not like it I could close the account. I did and went to the mt. Vernon branch. they confirmed that the account was closed but I could open a new one. I did . A few months later I get a letter from bank HQ saying the act is still open. Mt. Vernon Bank says acct is open. new Rochelle bank says the acct is closed.

with so much confusion. I opened the second account because it was closed. Then they took $20.00 when I closed the account. I closed both accounts and bank elsewhere. can you trust a bank that operates in a supermarket? Thank goodness I had a backup account with a real bank. I found the staff at both branches clueless and regret giving them my trust and money.
