This bank charged me $6 to cash their check for $70. All of the other banks do not charge anything for cashing check for under $100 and if it is over $100 the charge is at most $5. From now on i will charge $6 more for anyone that banks at the bank of the west! There should be a law against banks to charge so much to cash their check!

Sent in a deposit requesting some bank by mail envelopes be returned to me.  They arrived this morning, about 20 of them which should last 5 years.  This item was mailed with insufficient postage, I had to pay the mailman .63 just to get the mail. What is wrong with this bank?  Don't they have a postage meter and a scale or even a book to look up the pricing for postage.  Two USA forever stamps does not mean the bank has covered the postage. Half of the self addressed envelopes would have been more than enough. How do I get my .63 cents back?

I have been to Bank of the West for Many times now. But this is the first time I've ever received the most worst customer service in my entire life with Bank of the West especially in Oroville. Most of the time, I recieve good service and they would alway count the money out before handing out to you. But this time it was not like that. As I walked up the the accountant (she just been hired recently about 5 months almost half a year now.) I was there to deposit money in my parents account and make change for my parents. Usually I recieve service and have never been refused because as long as we have an account with them. They never ask question.  I told the lady which I believe that her name is daneil or whatever I can careless, but I told her that I wanted to DEPOSIT money in my parents account and make change for them as well. She ask me if I bank with them and I told her no but my parents does since I'm doing this for my parents sake because they are old and can barely walk down the street. She refused my service my service.  I can understand that I don't bank with them that why I can't recieve change but come on this was for my parents and it was only for a change of 5s for a damn 50. Yes, I understand the whole title saying that I could have been lying but come on I usually come there and make change even if I told others accountant the same thing and they would have given me a better service without refusing me and they would have tried to convince me to bank with them. This lady just straight up said "this will be that frist and last I will do this for you." And she try to play it off cool without an attitude and chuckle afterwards while her other coworker just looked at her quite weird. SHE GRAB A FEW FIVES AND JUST HANDED TO ME AND TOLD ME TO COUNT IT MYSELF.  Wow. Good job Bank of the west. YOU MADE A REAL DAMN EFFORT Hiring and damn lazy person.  JUST SO YOU KNOW. I HAVE BANKED WITH EVERY BANK IN OROVILLE ( I also use to bank with bank of the west. Name all the banks you can in oroville I've been there) by far this is the second worst place to bank with if you have that accountant helping you the rest of the staff are nice. All I can say is thank goodness I bank with Wells Fargo and they do an amazing job. By far the best bank in oroville as well. This is my opinion.  Hopefully you all don't experience this like I do.
