Excellent Bank & Excellent Customer Service

Posted by: 53cust1788 | Feb 4, 2012

We have been banking with 5/3 for 2.5 years.  We also have our home mortgage through them with an excellent interest rate.  We do our online banking with them as well without any problems.  They have excellent customer service at their West Chester branch.  We have never had a problem with them, but then we have never written NSF checks.  If you are looking for a friendly, community bank that values their customers then Fifth Third is the bank for you.  If you want to write NSF checks or have a bank account that you never monitor, then maybe its not the bank for you :-\

Great service, if you can afford it

I have banked with 5/3 Bank for about 10 years. Whenever I walked into the bank, the tellers would recognize me (no matter what location) and be very friendly. They were always attentive and kind. When I needed euros and pesos to travel internationally, they were able to able to get them in a matter of hours. The service was excellent.

When I was a student in high school and college, I was never charged fees for having checking accounts because I was young. As soon as I graduated from college, they started charging monthly fees for my checking account. I would be fine with that if the few were less than five dollars, but they were 15-30 dollars! I asked to get the fees removed, but they told me that I needed to have a 1,000 dollar minimum in my checking account in order to not have fees. I'm not sure how true that is today, but I was flabbergasted then. As a college student with a lot for debt, how could they expect me to have that much money or to pay the fees? I closed all of my accounts there a while ago and am now banking for free with a credit union.

Another Unhappy Customer

My mother and I were major depositors for many years, but that does not seem to matter.

(1)  My mistake my balance was low.  I was glad a lady from my branch called to say she had a $500 check I wrote that would be returned if I didn't deposit enough money to cover it before close of business.  I deposited more than a sufficient amount into an ATM two hours later.  They still charged me for returning that check, the charged me for returning another check (by now I had deposited enough to cover all my checks), and charged me an overdraft fee.

(2)  I knew my balance was too low for a $450 check I wrote that the bank would receive any day.  I hurried and sold some gold for which the dealer wrote a generous check.  I immediately deposited this check so the $450 check would be more than adequately covered.  I asked the teller if that  money was in my account "right now" so if they received a $450 check that would be paid from my account, it would be covered.  She assured me it would be covered.  They received the check that day and still charged me for an overdrawn account.  A customer service person said it counted as an overdraft because the check was pending and the $450 was not available that day.  He said the teller gave me wrong information, but he did refund this overdraft fee.

(3)  I asked my branch to wire transfer money to a friend's account in State Bank of India.   Not all foreign banks have standard internatonal bank numbers.  Because State Bank of India did not have that number, but uses something different, Fifth-Third's computer system could not handle it.

Fairfield Ohio 53 Bank A Nightmare

Posted by: LJ510 | Jul 9, 2015

Fairfield Ohio Wessel Drive--I would not recommend this bank. Bank manager advise personal banker to set up our passing father's account into a personal account instead of an escrow account. Per the bank error, they sent back all the checks made out to our father back to the payees and would not honor these checks. We discussed that there would be checks and we would be using this account to handle his affairs and they assured us that there would be no issues. Can't wait to close out this account with 53 because they are a nightmare to deal with.
