Has anyone heard any rumors about this bank not doing well. Just moved here and was going to open an account but was told about the management and how odd and unsociable they all are. Any bank recommendations. Thank you!

Carolina first just closed it's doors here in Marion.I'd say 85% of their customers went to Mountain First.

I heard that they had failed and closed and that if customers wanted their money they would have to wait for about a month!

Im a customer of Mt 1st. The bank is fine,just took some money out this morn. The people at the bank are friendly and always helpful. Yes it does get busy so you might have to wait a few. I used to be with BB&T, there you were lucky if they could quit gossiping long enough to notice a customer ( not to mention there less than ethical banking pratices).

Love this bank. Customer service is great. Don't bank with TD. They suck.

Carolina fisrt was bought by TD. They closed Marion branch but have one in Morganton. As for customer money,this buy out happened months so one would guess they have transition bugs worked out.

This bank is failing and 1 of The Bard Members get Loans at Crazy Rates and Amounts. Read SEC filings you will see they are CROOKS.

TD bank really does suck. They used to act like a small town bank when they were still Carolina 1st but not now. I've been with TD/Carolina 1st for 10 years. No more.
If David Wooten is still with Mountain First, I think I'll change over to them.

I heard from someone who knows that they are being shut down by the Feds and that they don't have enough money to cover even 10 percent of their deposits! They were so bad a got my money a long time ago.

MTN 1ST has been my bank, as well as my families for years. For someone to say they are unsocialable is ridiculous! They are always very helpful and friendly! From my experience they go out of their way to help their customers.
I havent heard any news about the closing their doors or any problems at all.
PROBABLY, just more from the rumor mill or another bank trying to start problems for them!
Just have to tell u

Carolina First was our bank before the shutdown in Marion. Miss them, very good to deal with.
Asheville Savings is our bank now. I appreciate everything they have done for us.

My only dealings with this bank is selling a house to someone who financed through Mt 1st. I call the 1st Bank of Hoops. They set up so many hoops for me and the buyer to jump thru that it took several extra weeks to close. I would never use them again.
