Great Bank

Posted by: |

I have been a client of BankUnited for 14 years. Maybe I am the exception, but I have only had great service. I don't understand all this negativity. Tellers have been friendly, monthly statements on my two act.s are accurate, checks have been comped, local branch just a couple blocks from my home in Ft Lauderdale so convenient, a great local banking experience, This from someone who worked for
both Chase and Citibank. And forget about Wells Fargo and Bank of America!

BEWARE!!! Bank Is A Scam

Posted by: |

venice fl branch. manager lied to me regarding the money market rate if you open online. lied to me on depsoit clearance time and put a hold on my deposit. incompetent or scammers. you pick? either way, BAD BANK!

Bad Customer Service

Posted by: |

Let me preface this with stating that I'm awful at managing the multiple accounts I have with various banks. I initially moved some money here because the interest earned was higher than others advertised. However when I moved some out to handle some business expenses, I had fallen literally .6% of my initial deposit below the threshold for maintenance fees.

I hadn't realized it until a few months had passed so I called in to see if they would work with me to reclaim the fees and I could immediately bring my account balance to whatever balance they needed. They were not willing to be flexible in this case because "this was not a bank error."

I've worked with plenty of banks that have better customer service in relation to these annoying fees especially when they happen from an honest miscalculation on my part from moving money around. So yeah, closed my account, leaving a negative review, taking my business elsewhere.

If by chance someone at bankunited sees this and wants to credit back my $45 bucks, I'll rescind the review and gladly be willing to repoen an account and continue doing business with them. See? It's not hard to be flexible.
