What A Joke!

This bank is the absolute worst. I wouldn't recommend it to anyone they are so far behind in technology all the paper work they have to do just for a deposit its like 1975 in there and the constant new faces are ridiculous. Every time they get someone who is worth keeping around they end up losing them and keeping the rude tellers. i wouldn't recommend this bank at all. They do these ridiculous customer service surveys and it is so stupid. Bottom line no matter how many times u call and ask how my experience was its was never going to change I'm so glad I woke up and went to a real bank.

Worst Bank Ever

This use to be a good bank until they merged with Whitney Bank. I have been a customer for the past 3 years. I ended up opening 3 other bank acounts with better rates and fees. I am so thankful to get rid of Hancock. They will try to charge you for any little thing that they can especially when they know you plan to leave them. Stay away if possible. It has been a steady decline in treating customers right. I have never been so dis-satisfied with a bank before, and believe me...I've used 8 other national banks and credit unions.

Are People Really This Dumb !!!

Last time I checked, banks charge for incoming and outgoing wires lol, have minimum balance requirements etc. Most banks are for-profit so if you have fee issues go to a Credit Union, they will also charge you for wires etc, yet they are non-profit !!! Everything in life cant be free!!! Wake Up People!!!

Worst Bank!!!

Worst bank I have ever had. They find anyway to charge you. They not only charge you monthly if you don't keep over $250.00 daily in your bank account, but they charge you $20.00 to send, and recieve a wire transfer! I have never had a bamk do that! , I have moved around a lot and have had several different banks, and this one by far is the most money hungry one. Be careful, they will find some way to ring money out of you.
