This bank was decent while it was W Ga National Bank. Then it became First National. Still, acceptable. Good online banking, nice LOCAL people. Then, when it was shut down and reopened as Community & Southern it has steadly gone downhill. The online banking is USELESS and very old looking. It's almost like they went back 25 years with it. They are not local anymore. They do not fix things when things go wrong. They are hard to get in touch with. The only good thing is deposits are posted that day up until 4pm..unlike most banks...which have 2pm cutoffs. I am moving my money to Suntrust Bank. Not a local bank, but one that seems to be more current with their products. I hate hate hate hate hate this bank. It makes my blood boil to log onto their website.
It only gets 1 star because I have to give it one. but really, this is a no star bank.
I Bank with Community and Southern and It is hands down the worst bank I have ever had the displeasure of banking with. The steal your money and then refuse to fix a problem when they caused it! I would strongly suggest no one use this bank!
When it was West GA bank was a great local bank with great service. Not any more..
THEY WILL DO THERE BEST TO STEAL YOUR MONEY LIKE I SAID A BUNCH OF CROOKS TOLD MY WIFE THERE IN BUISNESS TO MAKE MONEY SO I TAKE THAT AS DOING ANYTHING POSSIBLE TO STEAL YOUR MONEY AND THEN LAUGH IN YOUR FACE WHEN YOU ASK THEM ABOUT IT
Branches no longer have a phone number. TWO days to credit direct deposit pay. Lost/stolen debit/credit card number goes straight to voicemail and you don't get a return call. It took me two days to report a lost card then I had to go through the hassel of disputing charges with VISA because the bank will no longer LOOK at the transactions in memo post from the time the card was lost. Direct deposit on Friday morning is credited on MONDAY morning but Friday withdrawals credit on Saturday at midnight????? Branches can't assist you anymore on any matter. It's ridiculous. I was with Appalachian Community Bank which was part of Gilmer County Bank. The CEO et all were arrested for fraudulent land deals and some other hefty charges. The Feds took over and sold us to Community and Southern. I would rather have our old frauds running the place. One star cuz I have to give a star.
