    Nothing seemw to work right with the transfers, long delays, sleepless nights. Getting better after 6 months and rate is still competitive.

    Went through all the online questions. It turned down my app to open a svgs account. Called to ask why? They couldn't say, just said apply from a different computer. I did re-apply, to another bank, all good. Brio- a waste of time.

    I saw the bad reviews here and elsewhere but I need to say that I opened account 3 mos ago and find Brio to be at the same level as any of these.

    Opened acct here only to see the rate fall by the time it was eventually funded. Will close now

    Sterling Bank is the NY bank that overinflated NY taxi medallions just before Uber showed up and forced new immigrants into mortgaging everything in order to buy these. Beyond the ethical issues (many drivers committed suicide as a result), this bank could be facing legal action in New York and elsewhere and I would be cautious about depositing money here.
