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 in that atm
I live in Michigan but was able to open an account with no issues. I will soon be relocating to Florida and will have access to many physical branches. I call customer service one evening after 10pm and was able to get a rep to help me.
Very good customer service as well as account options!
My wife got a check in the mail that was a scam. She put the money in my savings account and the check was returned we did not spend any of that money but SunTrust charged us 36. 00 dollar bad check fee and a 20. 00 return fee and closed my checking and savings account with my mortgage and water bill still out and did not let those bill go threw the checking account.
SunTrust said that i could not go and get my remaining balance until there investigation was complete. So first i got caught in a scam and now being robbed out of almost 1000. 00 dollars from SunTrust. They are nothing but crooks i'v had an account with suntrust for 9 years so just to let everybody know they don't mind screwing regular customers.
