Sovereign Bank - I gave them a chance but....
BOSTON, MASSACHUSETTS -- I thought Wells Fargo was the worst bank till I moved to Boston and switched to Sovereign. Since then many of my money transfers have taken more than a week to arrive AFTER the sending bank had said the sending process was complete. They're understaffed. I spoke to a manager who told me my money was available for withdrawal after I had already been denied a cashiers check. Upon arrival, I was told I hadn't received my money.
On an unrelated note, Sovereign banks are hard to find and close VERY early. To put it plainly, they suck. I signed up because they were on several lists for being "best for college students" but if they're assuming that college kids don't transfer money, or withdraw money from banks past 4 they're mistaken.
