Peoples Bank Customer service
My card numbers have now been stolen two times in less than a year from Peoples' Bank. Both times, customer service has been less than helpful. They make the customer jump through hoop after hoop. In addition, it takes 10 business days to get a new card. When I asked if they could rush a new one, both the representative and the manager told me I would have to pay for me new card. I would highly recommend banking with a different bank... one that puts their customers first.

I feel as if People's has been trying to dissuade customers from processing transactions via their tellers for a few years now. My husband and I have been banking with People's for almost 40 years and we do our banking once a week at the Stop and Shop branch for convenience (we both work full time and have a minimum hour one-way commute home). I have been informed on several occasions that I have too many transactions and today the young male teller informed me (with disgust) that he has to wait on me every week lately. The branch manager who previously worked at this branch as a teller heard him say that to me and completely ignored it. She used to make snarky comments to me as a teller and does not acknowledge me at all now that she is at management level. We still have a sizable amount of money in their bank and have exclusively used their credit card and loan services throughout the years.
I am offended that People's employees feel that they can outright insult me on a regular basis. There are several wonderful female tellers that I have had the pleasure to do business with over the years and they are the only reason that I have not switched banks.
If I am forced to convert to on line banking, I will have ZERO loyalty to Peoples.
Last time I checked, tellers wait on live customers. No customers, no job.

This is the absolute WORST bank to deal with!!!! Because of issues with them, we closed four checking and one savings account. Looking online, there was a $10.00 charge for one of the accounts we closed. Turns out when I called customer service, it wasn't noted that this account was closed!!! Then waiting to close my 16 year old son's checking account, someone used his account number to order checks. Customer service said they couldn't take care of that and we would have to go into a branch. We did and the manager wouldn't believe that we hadn't ordered these checks online. When opening this account we said we didn't WANT checks and to note that on the account. Had to threaten to call my lawyer before they agreed to refund the $49.49 for the checks we didn't order. Then they transferred $10.00 to the account that was closed for the service charge for the month they claimed we missed in the timeframe we closed it!!! I am so glad that we are out of this bank!!!! The customer service SUCKS and they pull $$$$ out of accounts for their so called "service charges" . I have gone to DCU where we have NO problem and unlimited number of transfers between accounts with NO service charge!!!!!!Thank you for your feedback Is this review helpful?

We are very responsible and always have made extra payments to pay our loan off early. Well when I called to get help from them to see why my flood Ins. doubled. Everyone I talked to said you are right that shouldn't have have jumped that high. But no one grab the ball and wanted to help me. They sent me from department to department a day long . And the lady that handles escrow , mrs TII Swisher told me if I had anymore problems to give her a call back . so I did and of course she did not call me back. After being a loyal customer never late on payment and paying extra payment . You think they would try to get to the bottom of my problem. All's I can say is BEWARE of this company !!!!!!!!!! After they get your loan you are on your own !!!!! I will never use them again for anything . Very bad company to keep passing the buck to other departments ! And not willing to help resolve issue you are having. So I will no longer be a customer and im take my loan out of there hands . Shame on them all for passing the buck. I hope you heed my warning , and think twice before getting a home loan with them . Sorry they more caring about there customers . ShamefulThank you for your feedback Is this review helpful?

People's United bank will find any way possible to charge an overdraft fee. They never find it to be in their error. I had my final straw with them today with the third overdraft this year for a technicality. I am done. There are other games out there which are more transparent about their policies.Thank you for your feedback Is this review helpful?

This is the worst bank to deal with if you are unfortunate enough to be a victim of fraud. They're stuck in the dark ages when it comes for filing a dispute. You need to obtain a claim number and then download forms and submit them. Then they send you a letter via snail mail letting you know that they will make a determination in 90 days. It's been 60 days already for me so I guess they take every bit of the 90.
I noticed the fraud myself right away went to the local branch but they did not cancel my card. I had to go back the next day and again request they cancel the card as unauthorized charges were still coming through.
I am canceling this account and use only my Chase account. They alert me of fraud before I have a chance to see it and they return and money immediately.Thank you for your feedback Is this review helpful?

I do have an account at this bank for years.
I entered inside the bank and asked the young teller to change ONE $100 bill - into (5) $20's.
The bank teller asked if I had an account?
I said, "Yes". She proceeded to look it up.
I asked, "I need to have an account to get smaller denominations for one large bill"??? (It was the fancy, new style bill, with the strip and halogram).
The teller told me, "Yes, it's a rule, an IRS rule".
I said, "you can't be serious!?? To change ONE larger demonization into (5) $20's, I need an account at this bank"?
The bank teller said, "Yes. People would go around to banks changing money".
I said, "but it's ONLY ONE bill! Not several or many, which I desire to change out"!
Evidently, it doesn't matter....
So, if YOU are ever out of town and need to break a $50 or $100 into smaller bills, because many small vendors, who don't accept anything larger than a $20 (or credit cards, such as our local movie theater, where I was going!), apparently, ....without an account!, your money is worthless and you can't exchange it for smaller denominations at People's United Bank.
'No movie for you'! NEXT!Thank you for your feedback Is this review helpful?

This bank only wants to make money. They have alot of fine print. They charge 37$ for over draft fees and charge them all the time for the stupidest little reasons and things don't go through when they should, if you don't keep up with your check book every single little thing you use your debit card for than this is not the bank for you. They also allow your debit card to work after there is no longer money in your account, and they then charge you 37$ for every single transaction after the fact, days later even if you make you account positive in the mean time. They staff is extremely rude when things aren't in their favor. Been with them 2 years and have had so many issues, I finally give up. Credit unions are where its at, and they build your credit more than a bank.Thank you for your feedback Is this review helpful?

Firstly, I've had this issue with them and have attempted to get help on several occasions. I've gotten no where and the messages I have been sent have been disrespectful and not at all what you would consider customer service.
Issue is that I have incurred $111 worth of overdraft fees for checks that cleared after a deposit was posted to my account. One overdraft fee took place 2 days after the fact! 2 days! One person attempted to tell me that it just looks like that but really it went in a different way! Really!!!? If that is the case then why doesn't it reflect that?!!! Your statement should look the same as what truly took place. Not something that you should just shrug your shoulders at and say okay take my money!!!
Whats worse why they had screwed up my account they throw me further in the hole by putting in a account service charge. A charge that is supposed to help my small business! Which it never has, because I had to pay an additional charge to actual see the report. The whole bank is nothing but a fancy scam. Truly hate People's United Bank and wouldn't recommend them to my worse enemy!Thank you for your feedback Is this review helpful?
