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
We refinanced our home with suntrust bank. A bank representative suggested we set up an account (checking/savings) that the mortgage payments could be drawn from. This worked great until they changed the rules of the account and it no longer had no minimum balances or charges associated with it. According to the bank, we were notified on one of our statements, but like many people we do not read all the print on every statement we get. We lost several hundred dollars before we caught what was happening. The banks position was "we are sorry but there is nothing we can do about it. We cancelled the account and now we pay by check each month.
I never knew that their would be a worse Bank than Bank Of America but long behold Suntrust is the worse one ever! There overdrafts fees are absolutely ridiculous. The Bank is a joke! The rude employees are a joke, the Managers are a joke, the Supervisors are a joke. I wouldn't advise anyone to go there! Horrific.
