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.
My credit card company charged me hefty fees because of Suntrust. When I did an automatic payment from my checking account which is linked to a larger savings account, the bank posted insufficient funds. What a hassle. Now I have to call Suntrust to find out why this happened and re-pay the credit card company. I am not sure why the Pantops Suntrust branch is so screwed up, but I really love the branches that are further away from my home in town. Only recently (in the last 6 months or so) has this branch gotten competent bank tellers who smile at you and greet you. Devin is the BEST!
This bank is very unprofessional. I went to change my address and the teller tells me I dont stay in pne place for to long.... excuse me I moved after living in a place for two years, and what is it any of her business if I moved every two months. Instead of helping me with my situationshe was being very judgemental and rude.As well me going to change my address was pointless she didn't even change it and my check is goingg to my old address. In the two years I've banked with them I've never had a problem until now. GLAD my account is closed with them
