Customer of eight years requested Suntrust bank manager to sign a certificate of identity for passport application. Response: sorry, no can do, not company policy. So, your trusted bank manager that you have known and developed a good business relationship over many years cannot sign a form identifying you are who you are. Question: if every Suntrust customer asked their manager for a signature to confirm their identity - confirm a signature and their photo identity - and the bank manager refused - would you want any part of that bank? Would you hold accounts there? Would you want to hold their stock? How many customers would they have left. Bank of America has no issue with confirming identity. The form says - bank manager, lawyer or Doctor. People - Suntrust bank refuses to sign a form confirming your identity! How pathetic is that?
You are a complete idiot. A notary public seal is required. Every full service branch at STI offers this service by appointment. It's free for clients and there's a charge for non clients. Get your facts straight. Ask yourself, is it better to have a persona of a fool or to open your mouth and remove all doubt?
So, if this was something as easy as having a notary sign a form, how come the Manager didn't know, or offered this? Oh, I forgot...it was the Manager! Maybe he should have asked a teller, many times they are more intelligent.
