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!
I have been with Woodforest for 5 yrs now. They gave me second chance banking with a 5 dollar deposit. The manager Cindy is a wonderful person and will help with any problem with a smile! Their OD fees are only 29 dollars. Guarantee you will pay 2 fees for an overdraft at any other bank and they will charge at least 35 per OD! If you mess up you can take a checking tutorial and have one OD taken off. This bank is excellent and i wish they were at every Walmart but I got lucky because there are 2 near me.
It cracks me up when I hear people say that Woodforest "took their money". Well if you keep track of what you spend, don't write checks when you don't have the money in your account, don't give your account information online or to anyone else, you shouldn't have a problem. If you over spend...YES! you are going to get an OD fee! If you write a bad check...YES! you are going to get an NSF fee! Woodforest places items in pending until they are completed so customers can see what is being processed into their accounts and give them extra time to deposit money if needed before any fees may be accessed! That sounds like a good thing to me! And Woodforest doesn't even check credit! If you have the second chance checking account that is probably because you have had issues with other banks as well! So before you go blame Woodforest...maybe you should keep track of your money!!
