Holding My Money

Posted by: |

I had a friend help me out. He got some of his friends to donate me some money to get my teeth worked on and other things I needed.
They deposited checks. Regions thought they looked suspicious so they put a block on my account.
When I talk to them at my branch they said they thought they were fraudulent and they were protecting me and themselves in case they were bad. I was asked if I knew who deposited them. I told them the truth no I didn't and it came as a surprise to me. But I said when I called my friend they people preferred to remain anonymous. But I said thats fine hold them until you see that they are good.
Its been two months and they still have my account blocked holding my money. You would think if they were fraudulent it would have showed by now.
But they will not close out my account and send me my money. What do I do?

Leaving Regions - Like Others Due To Indefinsible Deposit Holds

When we moved to Florida some 3 years ago there was a Regions just 5 minutes from our new home - very convenient. Since then the lobby area has increasingly remained closed (not even a sign on the door) - with only drive up service available. According to the Manager, this has been due to a shortage of personnel ... FOR WEEKS OR MONTHS. This is particularly true and aggravating on Fridays - a peak banking day for many.

As others have decided and posted, we will begin our account moves out of Regions to another institution on Monday - due specifically to these indefensible deposit holds ... 10 days or more - even for CASHIER CHECKS DEPOSITED FROM MAJOR BANKS BLOCKS AWAY! Of course these holds defeat the entire purpose of getting a cashier's check to speed financial transactions along in the first place. In fact, these Regions practices make a mockery out of the entire cashier check process within the industry.

I can only wonder if sitting on deposits like this could be a sign of deeper overall corporate financial concerns ...

A few phone calls today indicated "the norm" within the financial industry locally seems to be a 24 hour hold for cashier's checks. If not outright illegal, these practices seem unethical at best. Bye bye Regions.

Going Downhill Fast

Posted by: |

I've been banking with Regions for decades, but recently, there have been changes that make it difficult to stay with them. First of all, a year or so ago, they fired almost all of their long-time employees, leaving the staff shorthanded. Then they closed on Saturdays. Last week, I lost a credit card. I called the bank, they told me I had to call an 800 number to report the loss, they couldn't handle it in the office! 800 number has a wait time of 20 minutes, and they hung up on me after about 10. That's happened 3 times this week. As a result of COVID, I tried for weeks to set up online banking with no success. I have begun the process of moving my savings to another bank.

Honestly this has been the most unprofessional bank I’ve ever had the displeasure of being a part of it doesn’t matter whether you pay online, over the phone with an agent, OR IN PERSON! They will not accept your payment for credit cards. I’ve unfortunately been a poor soul attached to one of their credit cards for 3 years and I’ve had 8 bounced payments not due to the lack of money(I have plenty to pay their pitiful minimum payment) but due to the fact they don’t have customer service bums that know what they are doing, their online service makes windows 1.0 look like a super computer, their live agents are a less expensive hallmark card, the poor things are worse than useless(I’m calling them stupid because they are) and even when I went into a physical branch and paid that way I still managed to get something wrong. Im done, im sick of it, and honestly better not catch the CEO slipping on the streets I’ll curb stomp his dumb ass for all the late fees he brought me. Those fuckers ruined my credit score no fault of my own. Would rate in the negatives if I could.
