Nice Game Up Front

UCBI, not impressed with them now,   this will be the shortest time i have ever had an account of any type with a bank, I'll say it will be about two months total time,I'm just glad I have not gone through with moving my business account and credit card processing over to them for my retail and online cc accounts

 

when someone treats you with such disrespect as I have just been treated by UCBI credit card department, I will leave, laugh at me once and it's your mistake, laugh at me twice my mistake, which will not happen.

 

I called with concerns on why we had such a joke of a offer on a cc, after a discussion and her not giving me a reason the lady just laughed at me over the phone when I told her it was about a insult of an offer,  that is a great way to handle a customer who is not real happy and a damn good way to be sure they loose our business!

I can only recommend NOT doing business with UCBI

 

United Community Bank

This is a home town bank that knows its customers.  Is it a huge bank?  Nope?  Does it have every modern convenience known to man?  Nope  Does it serve its customers?  Yes it does.  

This bank was able to see past the GLB act and the Community Reinvestment act.  They stood their ground, when they could have participated with the others during the housing bubble and put their customers in harms way financially.   I think that anyone considering a home town bank should give United Community a try.  I think you will find them a good financial partner.  

After Hours Assistance Needed? You're SOL!

Employees are friendly, can't fault them, but this bank is stuck in the dark ages.  Good luck finding a branch open after 4.  Better luck getting any help whatsoever after 5.

While trying to make a purchase, I found that apparently a hold was put on my bank card because they got overzealous in their fraud protection.  I don't know for sure, because when I tried to call a support number I spent 20 minutes on hold, listening to advertisements of their services, which were interrupted every 10 seconds (!) by a recording urging me to stay on line because someone would be with me shortly.  What do I get after that 20 minute wait?  A few rings, then a new message telling me they were closed until tomorrow.

Closed.  Tomorrow.  I like the sound of that!  Closing my account tomorrow!

Forget Afterhours

UCB is the pits. Their on-line banking is years behind. The ABILITY to talk to someone about a debit card or ATM problem is non-existant. Even credit unions have access afterhours to speak to someone when there is a problem. Not UCB. They expect someone to tell their boss in this economy - hey I gotta contact my bank so I can't work my job. And when you do get UCB better plan on a run around, multiple transfers, and finally to be put on hold. Never known it to take less than 1/2 the day to deal with them. And it's always a problem at their end. Some reason their system wasn't functioning and caused abc.....

Problem again today. I have money in the bank. I balance almost daily. I stop at the grocery store - my debit card states insufficient funds and rejects. I go home - nope online banking agrees with me - plenty of money in the bank for the transactions Try to call UCB afterhours access to see what it states the balance is. I can't. It keeps telling me my PIN isn't my PIN. You know the same one I used yesterday.
