TELLER STOLE $100, BANK SAID NOT THEIR PROBLEM
Overall Rating
Office Environment & Staff
by dylansgoldman, Jul. 29, 2014

Yesterday, after first withdrawing $1200 from my personal account at Chase, I made a cash deposit of $950 to my landlord's account at the SunTrust Branch on Mtn. Industrial Blvd. in Tucker. Upon arriving, I filled out my deposit slip and was called up by Benjamin, one of their tellers. I handed him the deposit slip and then, for the first time since receiving it from my bank, opened the Chase envelope containing $1200, and counted out $950 and handed it to the teller. Well, I thought it was $950. I then folded up the remainder, which should have been $250 (two hundreds, two twenties and one ten), and put it in my wallet.  Benjamin began to recount the money, all hundreds with one fifty, but then stopped, the money fanned out in his hands. Quickly, his expression changed, he handed me my deposit receipt and thanked me. He still hadn't finished counting down the money in front of me, but as I was in a hurry, and didn't for a second fathom a bank teller would act with anything less than integrity, wrote off the encounter and left the bank.
Wouldn't you believe my surprise when I got home and realized that I had folded up $150, not $250. I didn't make any stops in between, and hadn't removed the money from my wallet, or my wallet from my pants since right before leaving the branch. There was no way I could have dropped a one-hundred dollar bill- my bills were still folded neatly in my wallet the way I had left them.
As I am not one to falsely accuse, I retraced my steps over and over with my girlfriend, who was with me the entire day and had waited in the car at the bank. I contacted my landlord to verify the deposit amount was $950 and not $1050- it was $950.
Unfortunately, by the time I took my wallet out of my pants at home and noticed I was short $100, the branch already was closed. So I went back today to speak with a Supervisor or the Branch Manager.
I was very calm and quiet, wanting to be discreet about this issue, as I was obviously implying that Benjamin had stolen $100. Of course, his drawer was neither over or under yesterday- and why would it be? He pocketed my money!
I explained what happened as I just did above, and told his supervisor I would like someone to review the tapes from yesterday so we could get to the bottom of this. She was very polite and seemed genuinely concerned. After briefly speaking with the Branch Manager behind closed doors, she returned to tell me that he/she said, "Once you left with the balance, there is nothing we can do," to which I replied, "And you don't record the tellers, do you?" She explained that they do not record behind the tellers at all. Still calm, I said, "Well that [guilt and bad karma] is something that he will just have to live with then," and left.

I guess I forgot to mention...I'm a published journalist in Atlanta.

Now I ask you: What is the point of having cameras behind the tellers if they aren't recording? One of your employees can STEAL $100 from a customer and GET AWAY WITH IT, SCOTT FREE? And it's MY PROBLEM? I don't think so.

DON'T BANK WITH SUNTRUST. THEY LIE, CHEAT, STEAL AND HAVE NO ETHICAL STANDARDS. And the customer is obviously NOT always right.

I plan on taking this issue as high up as I have to.
