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 closed my account with suntrust more than 5 years ago. I put in several requests and my account was at a $0.00 balance. The imbeciles who represent this disgusting organization did not close my account and allowing it to go into negative standing due to monthly maintenance fees.
Recently they sold my account to a third party debt collector and have no information since the account was closed. The representatives of this company have terrible attitudes and even worse customer service skills. They lack the knowledge and intelligence to successfully navigate their own internal computer system.
Crooked, stupid, swine. DO NOT BANK WITH THESE SCUMBAGS!
I had a check written to me from a Craigslist customer who was buying a purse from me for $75.00. I went there twice to try and cash it because it was written from a Suntrust account holder. The first visit Kenneth examined the check and said nothing negative about the check itself but said I needed marriage certificate and divorce decree to follow my last name changing, etc. etc. I returned a few days later after the manager said I could cash it with the ID I had which was my Ga. ID and my Original Birth Certificate. After waiting for quite awhile, he took me to a desk in the center of the bank and accused me of making this check myself...said it was a fake and I guess that I created it and printed it out myself and then made-up names or something on it. I started crying cause I had no idea about any of this and he was blaming me. Would I really come into a bank with a counterfeit check and forged names and try to cash it with my real ID and birth certificate? He refused to give me my ID and birth certificate back and told me if I open my mouth to say anything at all he would call the authorities. My son was with me and he said I had to get up and leave right then without my personal stuff if I wanted to have my son leave with me. So he threatened to have my son taken from me if I tried to speak or get my stuff. I was so upset and scared and with my son there, I did just that...I left. He also told me his manager was shady and did illegal shady deals and that I must be one of the people she does them with. I had only met her a year prior when she helped me get money Suntrust had owed me for 3 years. She is a honest person. Kenneth (teller?...asst. manager?...don't know what his position is) is an angry, unprofessional bullying thief! I have contacted the authorities myself now and was told that he had no right to keep my personal items and he acted illegally and that I should have called the police myself that day and he wouldn't have gotten away with it.
