This is the worse bank in the world. The back office and 800 customer service reps could care less about there customers. Not to mention there online banking is dated back to the prehistoric times. Ive never had anyone write me a bad check but they hold my money for like two weeks. Ive since switched to a small local credit union and it cant be better. I hate big banks we are just a number to them.
I deposited a check and the bank let it go they issued the funds I did not realize I had been part. Of a scam so they put money in account then took it back and at same time froze my account thinking I purposely done this they are closing my account even though my wife has her social security and I have my payroll check its going to mess us up financially
I am not a SunTrust Bank customer -- and now it is guaranteed I will never be one. It may seem silly, but on a fundamental level, I think my story is important. My young son had a roll of quarters he had saved and wanted to exchange for a ten dollar bill ("real money" according to him). There was no line, the counter staff were not busy. From what I could tell they were just sitting there talking to each other. So I walked up with our humble roll of quarters and asked for a ten dollar bill. The lady behind the counter asked if I had an account with them. This took me a little off guard. I wasn't trying to take out an auto loan. I just wanted to exchange some very small currency. I don't have an account and she very brusquely told me I needed an account registered with SunTrust in case the amount wasn't correct so they had a way to contact me.
I know this sounds like I'm making this up. I wish I was. At this point I am beyond bewildered. I had to pause to make sure she wasn't joking. I was also insulted. First, I have worked in multiple jobs where I've had to count up and maintain a safe. With this you have to count rolls of change. I know technology exists that allows you to place the roll in the counter and based on weight it knows whether or not the amount is right. Secondly, if you don't trust the contents of the roll, I know it took me all of about 30 seconds to count up the roll in the first place by hand. She tells me sorry there is nothing she can do.
Big bad SunTrust can't count a $10 quarter roll.
I realize the loss of me ever being a customer will have zero impact on this bank and that they will likely never read this. I'm not an expert but what a waste of easy business. I'm new to the area and in need of a car loan. I am completely open to a new bank and a good offer. My new auto loan will go elsewhere. I'd like them to be able to count. Sometimes, it really is the little things that make a difference.
