I opened a bank account with them a little over a month ago.....they sent me my first debit card witch cost me 15 dollars i didn't get it so i reported it lost/stolen....i went to the branch in lakeworth and they where extremely rude to me....when i got a business card for the branch manager the teller's response "nothing will happen to me" i was in shock! i requested another debit card, and i gave them my physical address and never got my debit card after i waited another 2 weeks....called customer service and the address was a different one than the address i gave the lady....im guessing they just really didn't like me since i called the manger (witch never returned my calls)...today i went to cancel my account and they seemed almost pleased with my decision. Than the teller told me it would cost me 25 dollars to close the account....this branch is one of the worst i have ever bank/been to....think twice before you bank wood forest and the customer service sucked!!!!
To start we relocated from there to the Midwest for husband's job, been a customer for a few years. My husbands check has been direct deposited every two weeks about 7000.00, his new employer which is headquartered out of Katy, Texas. Gives a paper check for your first check his new company took the time to go the bank and deposit the check so we would have access to his money, being he hasn't had a check in over a month since relocating. Well to make it short they put a 10 day hold on it, unbelieveable!! His new employer is local to this bank and a 95 million dollar company. Someone is not doing their job all they had to do is call and verify the funds. We will be changing banks as soon as the hold is lifted.
I absolutely am pleased with this bank. The branch in Laurens, Sc is so helpful. I am one that have been careless with checking accounts in the past. They help me turn around. Now I understand. You spend what you have and keep track of your spending. Its all about paying attention. The tellers there know you when you come in and are always nice. I cant blame woodforest for overdrafts at all. This bank is not trying to get rich off of working people, they are there to help careless account holders become responsible.
