I just moved to virginia recently so i needed a local bank where i could direct deposit my checks and do regular banking activity. My first mistake was to open a suntrust account online. Since they would not take my money online, i was advised to go to a local branch. Big mistake- giving them my money. So i go to the branch and they give me my full checking and savings account number. I deposited 50 dollars in each of these accounts. I went to try to login online and i couldnt so referring to my initial email "welcoming" me to suntrust, i called and told them that i couldn't login. They went ahead and said they reset my password and that they would send the email to get online.
I never got the email. I called the next day. They told me my account was closed due to suspected fraud. I inquired as to ok, first, what the heck was the fraud and also can i get the money back that they stole from me, they told me a check would be mailed out and i couldn't go to the branch to get my money. I called back as to inquire about the fraud and they said they "could not give me any information except to say that they are closing the account due to sun trust rules and regulations". I again asked "its thursday- where is my money that the bank took from me and now it's been close to a week and i can't access my money". I was told i would get a check mailed, it could take up to 5-10 days to get it and oh yeah, by the way if i went to sun trust to cash my check for my funds.
They might charge me since i don't have an account. When i got up off the floor, i simply shook my head. I told them that they had committed fraud and that this was against my rules and regulations. Please let me know where else i can share my story and who i can share it with. I have never been treated like this, never been this frustrated or disgusted with a bank..... This is poor business. I also happen to have quite a bit of money i wanted to invest but they lost out.. My company does much business with them but recently
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
