I was unfortunatley drawn to suntrust for a new mortgage on a home we were interested in buying. With a closing date in the way distant (3 mos as requested by the sellers), all was well. 1 month before closing, we had delivered all of the items that were required for the underwriters to proceed and the closing date and time had been settled as the date recommended by suntrust. Based on their information, we gave our notice to our apartment rental and scheduled movers. Unfortunately for us, the closing date came and went. We had to leave our apartment as they had rented out to someone else. We had no place to keep our furniture and had no place to stay. We are almost a week into this and there is still no news from them. We are continuing to pay for a hotel and storage fees. Excuses of overbooked underwriters is no longer acceptable to me. Managers won't return a call and are apparently fine with everyone else receiving my wrath. "dream house and good rates are too good to be true" should be their new motto.
I agree with other customers. We are struggling financially and are suddenly being charged $36.00 for a NSF fee and then another $36.00 fee hits 6 days later if we haven't been able to correct the account.
My mother is currently trying to pay off the negative balance of her account as quickly as possible in order to close it and the sad part about it is that she has had this one and only account since 1969. That's right.....she opened this account 44 years ago in 1969 and has used it flawlessly until the last 6 months when, due to a relapse of her Multiple Sclerosis (which she has had for 28 years) cause her to struggle somewhat financially.
Ironically, that's the exact time that Suntrust started double charging the $36.00 fees from people who are obviously already hurting.
I never saw the addendum where this was added on but I would have thought a 44 year old account would have been exempt or at the least Grandfathered in somehow.
I certainly wish we, the customers could randomly go along and add whatever we wanted to to our own accounts that would be beneficial to us the way Suntrust has abused and taken advantage of it's loyal customers by randomly adding fees and new rules out of the blue.
And did I mention that we have made 5.....FIVE.....5........ attempts to speak to the branch manager Deaundra Wood regarding trouble with my mom's account starting back last November of 2013? Well we are still waiting for her to return our calls, messages and for her to respond to the 3...THREE visits we made to the branch even though it's 45 minutes away.
My mother has always had wonderful things to say about Suntrust and has helped several family members acquire accounts there throughout the years but believe me.....she is certainly speaking differently about them now. She is also taking too many relatives to count on with her to her new bank. I'm sure Suntrust won't feel a thing in losing 25 accounts but my mom is suddenly smiling.....all the way to her new bank.
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!
