Very friendly and very efficient service. Good promotions on checking accounts.

Could do some things better

This bank is just okay. My biggest complaint is that they have NO phone number on the back of their debit card, so if I have a problem, I cannot just call them. I mean, who doesn't put their phone number on their debit card? When I do find their phone number online and call, it has not always been satisfactory so I usually just have to go into the bank to handle the problem. A second problem I had was that I did not check my bank online very often, so when I was basically inactive for about a month and I would attempt to get online with them, I was told my password was invalid. After about the third month, I was ready to close it down. I had planned on switching all my accounts over to them, but decided against it. When I do go into the back the people are really nice and helpful.

Always An Issue With This Shady Bank.

Trustco, a shady bank. First off, their mortgages are very competitive. Rates are low and no PMI is a huge plus. But this bank is stuck in the late 90s and early 2000s as far as money accounts go. Their online banking system is archaic, slow and difficult to use. But the biggest issue is the shady fees and penalties with no warnings. Ive been with the bank for a decade with my mortgages. They've made a ton of interest off me in that time and thats fine. Recently however, without a warning, letter or email, and out of no where, they changed their checking account rules in so that you must have an average running balance of $500 a month or u get a 5 dollar fee tacked on per month. I rarely check my checking account because this account is strictly to deposit money for my auto pay mortgage each month. So I was angry when I realized how many fees accumulated over the months. They also refused to refund any of it.

Thats not the worst part though. Recently I forgot to transfer the money from my tax savers to my checking to pay for my school taxes. I sent the check out to Colonie and Trustco let the check bounce 3 TIMES!!! Without a single letter, email or phone call. This racked up over a $100 worth of fees. It was a honest mistake from a long time customer and they refused to refund any of it. Super shady! Not to mention without warning, letter, or email, they opened up an overdraft account which created a HARD HIT on my credit without my consent prior to the bounced check. Even worse, the overdraft account didn’t even safe guard me from the bounced check. Unbelievable! Will almost certainly refinance my mortgage with some other bank soon.

Trustco is the new Fee Bank and they show absolutely no loyalty, and refuse to help out their long time customers. Bait and switch shadiness!

Terrible Image Management

OK let's face it all banks are greedy pigs, but these guys stand alone. Not just for the fee's they impose (and there are many) Not just for the harassment (I have a mortgage and if my payment is ten minutes late i get phone bombed continuously) but mainly for the shitty attitude & letters and lack of customer service I've received for the last 20 yrs. Believe me if it wasn't so expensive to refinance my loan, I'd have fired them long ago.
