Sun trust checking account policy is designed to rip people off. Can you imagine their own personal check that provided to me when i went into the Bank to withdraw money, was held for more than five days before it was cleared with an NSF fee of $35 twice. This is not funny at all. It is not up to 6 months i opened my account with Sun trust ( checking account) and i have been balancing my account whenever i use my card for purchases. Unfortunately this sun trust need post your transactions and it is always pending for more than 5days. After all, it is the system designed to get you ripped off. When i make a purchase the amount is subtracted from the balance i have in my checking, even with debit, but still sun trust still hold all these pending waiting to charge me their $35.00 fees are usual. On February, 6th my account was $-370 dollars and there was no purchase made with my card. When i drove to the bank, i was told that those charges were pending transactions i made 7days ago which has to be released on the same day (7th February) and all my pay check was given to sun trust. Sun trust will never pay you back your money because they know exactly what they're doing .Just out there to rip people off. I,m calling my lawyer because this is totally insane. I,m a student working pay-time trying to survive and you're taking my hard made currency just like that. Hell no....I know how to balance my account and you can;t keep telling me that you held my check for 5days and later release it to be posted when you knew you will get money from me. Even with One dollar transactions have to be pending for days so that they will charge you $35.00 NSF fees or whatever they call it. I know and i believe that they know what they're doing by setting the system like this in order to get you. EVEN WITH YOUR OWN PRINT OUT CHECK HAS TO BE PENDING FOR 5DAYS. TOTALLY INSANE
