Bank Buyout of Bank of America
HOT SPRINGS, ARKANSAS -- I have been a loyal customer to bank of America since 1993. I have never had insufficient funds, or written hot checks. This bank buy out from Arvest, has left me owing money and writing hot checks. I ... read full review3 Replies - Latest reply on 03/23/2013
TULSA, OKLAHOMA -- Deposited certified check for 205,000. Checked online same day and deposit shown as $200,000. Where is the other 5000? Did not take a dime of that deposit and did not write any checks; absolutely no activity other than deposit. Went to bank. Besides staring at me like I'm crazy to be asking where my 5000 is, absolutely NO help. I sat there at least 45 minutes. Got several different answers including "you'll see the whole thing in a week". Huh? I had all backup with me including copies of check, deposit slip, etc. Never did get a straight answer. Besides all this, there was also a $200 deposit I did not make. Huh? Finally called main number because the main branch in Tulsa is closed on weekends and no bank officers are available. Main number said the $200 is a "courtesy" so people can get a little money. I didn't want or ask for money. I wanted to see the full deposit. PERIOD. Turns out the missing $5000 is available for cash (not shown online though). The rest is on hold for clearance. OK. I understand clearing a big check but I DO NOT UNDERSTAND WHY ARVEST WILL NOT SIMPLY SHOW THE ENTIRE DEPOSIT TO THE PENNY WITH A STATEMENT ABOUT SO MUCH ON HOLD UNTIL ...DATE, 5000 AVAILABLE. Skip the $200 convenience......especially when I said we don't want to take a penny of this. Idiots. Possibly sneaky. Certainly hateful and rude.
Sure wish I'd read the reviews of this Walmart bank before I tried to make a deposit.
BENTONVILLE, ARKANSAS -- I run my banking off of paper, recently the teller took the liberty to switch me to paperless with out permission. I asked for this to be fixed and he told me that I asked for it, which I wouldn't. I noticed that I still wasn't receiving my information. Last night I receive a post card saying I over drafted in one of my account for 11 cents, for this they charged me 17 dollars.

They refuse to wave the fee. So today I am going to move $20,000 out of their bank.
LAWTON, OKLAHOMA -- My husband and I have been with Arvest for two years. We are extremely happy with their service. When I opened our account they were able to do everything for me including: changing our direct deposit over to their bank. Changing our Insurance electronic payments to them. I didn't have to do a thing. This was great since my husband was in Iraq at that time. Our account is always balanced at the end of the month.

The Employees are always friendly and able to help in any way. We have had no problems with this bank. Even when we call on the phone we are treated well. I would recommend this bank to anyone.
