Had a car loan with SunTrust. SunTrust sent out a letter giving me the oportunity to skip a car payment for the christmas month. We signed and sent the letter back and with confirrmation, we was able to skip a payment for that month which gave us a little extra money for christmas. This was in 2009. In 2011 we get a late note saying we mised a payment in 2009, well of course we can't find the letter with the payment confirmation on it, two years have passed so why would we keep it?
Now we make our last payment and the truck is now paied off, or so we thought! Now we get a bill for $3,300.00 of late fees and phone calls saying that they had someone out looking for my truck and that they did not want to set up a payment plan for the late fees, but that they wanted all of the money, or they were going to repo my truck. Now how crazy is that? I will never in life deat with that bank ever again.
I have been in business for 5 years and have been with Sun Trust since I started my business. I put over 100K a year through this bank, I have a high 700 score and never late, no bad marks on my credit, my business always shows a profit but yet when I tried to get a business loan to expand my company, all I was approved for was a lousy $2500 credit card, wow! My business spends $1000 a month just on fuel, how much help would this credit card really do??? I already have credit cards with higher limits, why would I want just another small credit card???
I'm considering moving to another bank, something less commercial and more local/business friendly.
I have been banking with suntrust bank since 2013 find it to be horrible. Staff rude half of customer sevice by phone don't speak english hard to understand. Suntrust is not true to keeping their word. Makes you feel beneath them, when you have a problem with your account. Not eager to help at all, like your anucents instead of a customer. That is the ones i have delt with in dallas ga. Surrounding areas of state...
