Prosperity Bank is a Texas-based subsidiary of Prosperity Bancshares, which is a multi billion-dollar financial holding company located in the state of Texas. The bank offers personal and business banking products and services, as well as investment and trust services.
Prosperity Bank offers several checking accounts, including one designed for teenagers. One checking account option is interest bearing and has minimum initial deposit and daily balance requirements. A savings account and a money market account are available and offer increasing rates of interest that are contingent upon account balances. The money market account actually allows for more debit transactions per month than the savings accounts. Certificates of Deposit (CDs) are offered with a range of term lengths from 30 days to 5 years. IRA accounts provide customers with tax benefits on retirement savings. Depository products are also available on the business banking side and offer similar products and services. Investment solutions range from college 529 plans to mutual funds and annuities.
Prosperity Bank online banking is a separate domain (ProsperityBankUSA.com) that offers a quick and secure way to manage accounts, pay bills, transfer funds, make loan payments, and view check images and past statements. The web-based platform can also integrate personal finance applications or word processing systems to help a depositor with the budgeting process.
Prosperity Bank was originally established in 1949 as the First National Bank of Edna. The bank changed its name to Prosperity in 2001 and is currently headquartered in El Campo, Texas. It serves its customers through numerous branches across several states.
In September of 2013, I tried to buy a home for the second time in my life. The first I got cold feet and terminated the contract. Then in 2013, I approached my Realtor again and started the process of buying a home again. She recommended me to a mortgage broker and she was horrible. I called someone from a local Chase Bank and he was not willing to do my loan. Prosperity Bank was my last option (as in the last bank I would try). The loan officer at Prosperity was very courteous and was willing to do all she can to help me. My realtor called and told her the situation and she offered to help me. When I called her and gave her my loan package, I asked her if I was going to get approved. She looked over my file and gave me an answer I didn't expected, she said "We can close in a week". I was relieved! The loan officer was able to apply the left over closing cost paid by the seller toward my down payment. The loan officer was a first class lender and I recently referred my sister to her for a mortgage. I would have moved my entire banking relationship to Prosperity Bank, but I work for a bank so I have to keep banking relationship at my bank.
If you're looking for a bank that's greedy and will rob you blind, this bank is for you! They've been stealing over $1000 a MONTH from my family's trust for years and now we're in a lawsuit to get OUR money!!! It goes up every month. Last month the charge was $1059. And again, that's to "manage" our trust account. That means they do nothing and deduct their "fees" every month. We didn't even choose to get in business with them. They bought out Victoria Bank. Crooks!!!
Dear whom it may concern,
Hello my name is Timothy Jamison and I currently have two accounts with Prosperity Bank the Branch located in Athens Texas. Their address: 617 S Palestine St, Athens, TX 75751. Ever since I opened up an account with this bank I have been treated like I am some kind of a criminal. Have been treated very rudely. I feel it is personal for some reason. The latest thing happened on Friday 11/27/2015 when I was trying to deposit a $1,500.00 check into my personal account. This check was from State Farm for a refund due to an auto accident I was involved in. Since my car insurance has my mother’s name on it for the multi car discount, the check was made out to both of us. Please keep in mind I deposited two other checks that had both of our names on them without issues with the bank before this. I live approx. 20 miles out of town drove all the way to the bank drive through just to be told I will have to go get my mother so she can show her ID and say it’s ok to Deposit the check in to my personal checking account. Why was it ok for me to deposit two other State Farm checks not ok for this one? I went to the main branch that you have to walk into to talk with someone. They told me the same thing. So I had to drive all the way back home and get my mom and then drive all the way to the bank in the cold and rain.
When we get to the bank drive through I have the check and deposit slip made out and ready to go. I also include my driver’s license and so does my mother. On top of going through all this they fingerprint my mother. What, her Texas Driver’s License isn’t good enough now they want to fingerprint her. We are not criminals and don’t even have speeding tickets on our records. We are law abiding citizens. Formal complaints will be issued with anyone willing to listen. I will be in soon to close my two accounts and take my business elsewhere! Already have another bank lined up that I explained this situation to. They agreed it's best to do business elsewhere!
Sincerely, Timothy Jamison
I would never suggest anyone opening an account with this bank. My father-in-law was a patient at a nursing home, and the bank allowed other individuals to access his bank account with out his permission. Prosperity Bank would not let my father-in-law have access to his own account. Thank god for Harris County Guardianship for stepping in. Even when a Harris County Judge ordered the bank to freeze the account, money was still allowed to be taken out by other individuals (Harris county Court 9, Case 402988). My father-in-law's judge appointed guardian was treated very badly by Prosperity Bank's employees, my wife and I were also treated very rudely.. If you have an account with this bank, consider moving to a more professional bank. Please copy and paste this to other sites....
