    Great Bank

    On 01/08/2016 I went into the Bank Of The Sierra Delano Branch, and I was pleased that employees greeted me as I came into the bank. When I went to go open my savings and checking account, employee did her job accurately, professionally, and courteously. I am so pleased on how they wanted me to be a customer of theirs. I am proud to be with Bank Of The Sierra.

    Bank of the Sierra in Farmersville CA 93223

    My fiance was depositing money into my account from the outside ATM, he could not get confirmation that the money he deposited went through. The lady at the bank told him to go inside, the lady working at the bank ( Cindy ) took my bank card from him and told him I would have to go to the bank and pick up my ATM card.

    The Lady at the bank ( Cindy ) called me up before I could even get down there and told me she was destroying my card, and all my transactions would now have to be done from inside the bank.

    What kind of customer service is this??? The people there are so rude!!

    I am disappointed that this bank has people like this working there.
    This has been an inconvenience to me because I am planning a trip in two weeks and I don't have my ATM card. I will soon be switching banks to a much better one.

    Thieves working with Paypal!

    Primary Account is not defined by Paypal as being the primary account billed with autopay transactions. If you change bank accounts because you moved out of the local area, close your Paypal account first. Bank of Sierra is profiting primarily through overdraft fees. Paypal is set up to maximize overdraft. Nobody would expect the definition of Primary account not to mean "first account to be billed". Bank of Sierra profits horribly from this misconception. With overdraft protection and Paypal routing your money unexpectedly to the wrong account all Banks win. Bank of Sierra has no intention of reversing overdraft charges due to Paypal's underhanded strategy. Why would Paypal do this? Because Paypal/ebay owner also owns stock in various organizations in Micro financing. These organizations make most of their profits from overdraft protection. Paypal is conveniently set up to maximize profits through overdraft. I would have never known this until I moved. It must really be horrible for poor people in America that live paycheck to paycheck. This is the first time I have over drafted and it only happened because I moved. They literally stole $1000 from me in overdraft fees this month when I tried to change bank accounts and Paypal routed my money in a direction I didn't expect it to go. Watch out America, it's things like this that turn countries into a war zone. O. Pierre is a French Iranian with heavy sentiments toward Iran and Iranian allies. Bank of Sierra is profiting heavily from his underhanded techniques to rob you of your labor. Banking local just means it's more difficult to close your account after you move.
