Poor Customer Service

Do not rely on the customer service to be of help to you! I've been waiting a week to get an answer on a mistake that they made. The last time I had to wait on an answer - it took 8 months! Good Luck if you use this bank!

No 24 Hour Check Verification

Someone wrote a check to me from SouthPoint Bank, and I was unable to locate any information with regards to how to verify the funds for the check. The only 24 hour number they have is the debit/credit card fraud number.

Southpoint Has Been Great For Me (Hence The 3 Star Instead Of 1)

SouthPoint  has been great for me (hence the 3 star instead of 1), but are no longer offering the rewards interest rate effective March 1st, 2010.  They said that the reason for the change is that "their rate was higher than most of their competitors."  So you reduce it a little, right, not just totally can it.  Anyway, moving on.  Starting to feel like a serial bad-relationship kind of guy, always thinking that the next girl will make me happy.  So am I using these banks, or are they using me????
