Best Bank / Dishonest

1 GA, United States Review updated:

STAY AWAY FROM THIS BANK!!
Don't ever have a NSF charge with this bank - your acct will be flagged and after that, any opportunity they have to push you into overdraft status they will take! Skeptics, I hear you out there saying "well if the money is there then you have nothing to worry about". Not true. Best Bank just lied to me about the date an item came through saying it came through the day before the funds were there (I have direct deposit). Had I not gone to the merchant (who I have had automatic draft with for 1.5 yrs with no problems) and asked them to print a screen shot of their accounting system (meaning the printout showed the exact day and time of attempted withdrawal - down to the second) I would have continued to believe Best Bank. Little charges (like $3.05) were bouncing all over the place due to the domino effect and overdraft fees just piled up higher & higher. Liars, liars...

    This is typical of this institution.They will change the order of items pending to force the maximum overdrafts if they can as well.
    I have had the exact same experience as you with a merchant showing me the day they processed the payment and it was the day AFTER these thieves claimed the funds were on hold.
