Suntrust Complaint - Suntrust steals and lies
CHESTER MD -- To Whom it may concern
Suntrust Bank has now over the course of just 30 days STOLEN over 828.00 of my monies from “overdraft” fees. They (Suntrust) have charged my family an atrocious amount of money for 1-3 hours.. YES HOURS… of shortage in my account. Some of these transactions were processed at the same time!!!
Suntrust ALSO puts in largest amount charged in so they can receive their “overdraft” fees for the numerous small charges increasing the amount of monies the consumer (me and my family) have to pay.
I had an overdraft protection loan which they CANCELLED even though I was never late or overdue on a payment to the loan.
I’m sorry I’m not a Rockefeller…
Now … being that I am a retired police officer on disability from an injury sustained on duty… receiving only a pittance of retirement each month. I am not able to find employment due to the state of the economy… partly due to our banking systems (SUNTRUST). I am struggling to play catch up for this 828.00 in fee’s. Last year Suntrust received 2400.00 in “overdraft” fee’s from me. I have pleaded with them to stop cashing and clearing automatic payments to my creditors if the funds were not available - but no- they (Suntrust) wants their 35.00 payments on a 3.30 atm charge for a little gas to pick my daughter up from school.
Can I also point out that 828.00 is half …HALF of my monthly income and I have a daughter to provide for.
Am I ALONE to be responsible for getting Suntrust out of its debt to the government??? ARE YOU??? Why should the consumer be charged these ridiculous fee’s to bail out these banking systems. Why is it always the little people that suffer??? I say put these THIEVES out of business. They will get the idea if everyone leaves… I now have 30 people who are going to switch - just my friends and family alone… see, there is something to be said about loyalty.
The charges I incurred on 3/22/10 $360.00 and 4/8/10 $ 288.00 were processed within minutes of the funds being available. Some of the 35.00 fees I am being charged for are still PENDING!!!!!!!!!
Now I have bills that will not get paid-Groceries that will not get bought- and more “overdraft” fees to come because of the overdraft fee’s …. all so some corporate executive can take a million dollar vacation and bonus on my dime.
I have tried talking to suntrust… I have tried reasoning… negotiating… they are unwilling to assist me in anyway.
The largest dollar amount goes in first… and it doesn’t matter that a charge and deposit went in at the same time… IM SCREWED.
This is illegal. What IS the interest for less than 1 hour on a $2 charge????
To the honest and respectable Senators and Politician please assist us…. Your people… your consumers
To the consumers …Please… leave suntrust… I am … Thieves
