happy customer for years

I have had a checking account with suntrust bank for over 15 years.I have been very happy with them and remained loyal ever since then.I use to bank with another bank and every time i would have a check that was not covered i had overdrafts that were plaguing me.I started an account with suntrust and it was not long that i got enrolled in an overdraft protection plan they offer.The banker lady told me that i should apply for it and if approved that it would help me in times like that.I really liked the fact that the bank is only a few miles from my house as well.I use to get a paper check at my old job and could not get to the bank till 5 in the evening which is when they closed but the guy at that bank knew i would be there every thursday then and he would make sure i got my deposit in before closing up.Talk about service now that was service and i very much appreciated it.

Decent Bank

a I've had suntrust for 10 years. No issues. if you're savings account goes down to 0 funds, it will automatically close, so look out for that. I have no complaints about the bank though.

Not So Great

I have had too many problems with this bank. When I call about my charge card I must speak to a supervisor to get anywhere. When I get a credit on my account, I see the bank lists it as a debit. I have gotten the run around too many times. And if you withdraw cash from your own bank's atm and accidentally use your credit card instead of your debit card…they charge you 25% fee! A nice supervisor did place a refund, but the bank listed it as a debit.

Suntrust Thinks Its Okay To CRIMINALLY Steal Money!

Posted by: grayarea | May 17, 2017

I have $11,600+ being held by Suntrust bank for nearly a month now. The funds were sent in via wire transfers and should have been made available immediately. They closed the account on April 28, 2017 and still have not given me my funds. I called this morning and spoke to 2 different individuals, one a manager and was told that they had no intent to send me my money. They said I needed to contact the financial institutions that initially sent the money. I asked what I was supposed to say as of course I had no account information and wasn't their client. I asked where the money was that was received, NO ANSWER. I asked if she was insinuating they had returned the funds to the originator and if that is why she was asking me to call those banks and she said she had no information regarding such. I had a customer contact Suntrust 3 days after paying for an order and say they did not initiate the wire. I provided 30 or so pages of documentation and communication for over a month with 4 different employees from that company - AMPLE PROOF they did in fact send the wire - an email directly from the owner confirming that and could not get ANYONE in the fraud department to review the paperwork. The customer wanted to cancel the order which was fine but they lied and said the wire was not authorized. I will be happy to provide ALL of this documentation. A suntrust Branch manager told me concretely MULTIPLE times that any funds coming in would be disbursed at the time of closing the account. She said I would have a bank certified check within 5 - 10 business days. That money is contractually obligated. I must fulfill those contracts by May 25, 2017 and they require a 4 week production time. Any and all Liability is now on Suntrust Bank. They are putting me out of business and CRIMINALLY STEALING MONEY.
