Best Local Bank In Charleston

Posted by: |

Compared to BB&T, Wells Fargo. and Bank of America in Charleston, SC there is no comparison. BB&T is horrible, but I have to deal with them with my business account. I can't comment on Web experience, only customer service within the branch. SCFCU treats everyone like a king. When I go to make a deposit or withdrawal I simply show my ID and tell them which account number. At BB&T I have to either write myself a check or use a deposit slip. How antiquated is that? The lines at other banks can get long, SCFCU always has the right amount of tellers, at most you will have 1 person in front of you.

SC Credit Union

I switched by bank from Well Fargo to South Carolina Credit Union because of a poor customer service after the Wachovia transition. I was pleasantly surprised with the customer service of South Carolina Credit Union. They had a more personal approach in dealing with their customers. Also, the rates on their loans were lower than other banks. I was able to refinance my mortgage at a lower rate which saved me significant amount of money.

Do Not Bank With These People

Worst app in banking. Also, i believe this bank; South Carolina Federal Credit Union, has a predatory method of charging it's customers with fees. They offer programs that are not standard for most banks. I was charged a total of $450 for transactions that should not have even over drafted my account. They applied fees, which resulted in a negative balance, and continued to apply fees over the Christmas holiday while the bank was closed and I was unable to deposit my check. I was not notified by email, or text that my account had fallen below a specific notification balance of $50 that I choose. The first notice I received was a full day after the last fee was applied. I will be ending my relationship with this bank which I maintained for over 30 years. The employee handling my account was incredibly rude and did not offer any assistance with my account issues, despite the fact that I have not had an nsf for over ten years. Incredibly dissapointed with the service that I received. I would recommend not banking with this company.
