I went to place a cash deposit on memorial day, 05/28/2012, having my deposit slip filled out and in the envelope for atm deposit's, since the branch was closed due to the holiday. Upon pulling up to the ATM @ bradley park drive in columbus, ga. I noticed that they had installed a new atm that requires no deposit slips or envelopes,like bank of america has had for several years, so i thought cool, sun trust has finally decided to get up to date, so i removed my deposit from the envelope and proceeded to make my cash deposit.
The atm rejected 3 $5 bills, after trying to re-insert them 2 times the deposit door closed and said on the screen thank you for banking with us. No receipt given, nothing, the atm just kept making noises like it was still processing, then after some time it went back to the start screen, so i tried to do a new deposit of the 3 $5 bills that were rejected, which the atm stated that deposits could not be processed at this time. So i left thinking that i will call the next morning and they will be able to check the atm and find my deposit.
I called and talked to jason who said that the atm is not owned by sun trust, it is owned by brinks and is only serviced once per week and he does not know on what day, but he said that the atm was working fine when he checked it earlier that morning.. So, he stated that he would have to get with the branch manager and call me back. That was @ 9:20am, i had not heard back by 2pm, so i called jason again and he stated that i would have to come in and sign a dispute form and it would have to be faxed in and an investigation done and could take up to a week but it usually only took a couple of days.
So i drove to the branch & signed the form & received a copy with a 1 800 # to call for further info. After 2 days i called and was told it was under investigation & it could take up to 10 days!!! So i guess my deposit is still sitting in the atm, waiting for brinks to come!!! Yeah, right, you can not tell me that they do not know what is i
My credit card company charged me hefty fees because of Suntrust. When I did an automatic payment from my checking account which is linked to a larger savings account, the bank posted insufficient funds. What a hassle. Now I have to call Suntrust to find out why this happened and re-pay the credit card company. I am not sure why the Pantops Suntrust branch is so screwed up, but I really love the branches that are further away from my home in town. Only recently (in the last 6 months or so) has this branch gotten competent bank tellers who smile at you and greet you. Devin is the BEST!
This bank is very unprofessional. I went to change my address and the teller tells me I dont stay in pne place for to long.... excuse me I moved after living in a place for two years, and what is it any of her business if I moved every two months. Instead of helping me with my situationshe was being very judgemental and rude.As well me going to change my address was pointless she didn't even change it and my check is goingg to my old address. In the two years I've banked with them I've never had a problem until now. GLAD my account is closed with them
