Stay Away From Fla Telco (121 Fian)

 Has to be the worst experience with a credit union I have ever had.  No costumer service, high and shady fees, and loan practices that border on the Illeagal in my opinion. Get your loans and accounts anywhere but here

Loans Go Anywhere Else!

recently I experience some financial difficulties, I was supposed to get a extension on 2 accounts. my auto loan and a on secured revolving line of credit. the truck never got 30 days past due, the unsecured line 60 days. my member privileges revoked I can only deal with collections even current though now. however the unsecured line of credit, basically a credit card goes over 30 days, collections calls and threatens to repo my current truck. stay away!

The WORST Credit Union In Town

I hav been with 121 (previously Florida Telco) for 8 years.  I have a checking account, a savings account, and have had a personal loan with them.  Everytime I go (no matter which branch), I get the worst service of any bank/credit union I have ever dealt with.  I closed my accounts today and would advise anyone looking for a credit union or bank to look elsewhere.  The rates are high and the service is bad to say the least. 

Personalized Service

I've found the service at 121 Financial to be friendly and personal.  I've compared their rates with others in town and they're pretty much in the middle or upper middle.  They do treat me like a person and not a number.

Best Credit Union In Jax

Customer service is number 1 - I didn't have to wait long and had a wonderful experience. My loan was approved and I drove straight to the dealership, purchased my new car and was even able to easily set up my payments to be made automatically which gave me .25% discount on my already low rate! Thank you 121 Financial!

Florida Telco They See How Far Your Money Can Go For Them

FL Telco has been the worst experience with a lending institution I have ever had. No customer service, fee driven, and practices that border on outright fraud. Stay away from FL Telco.
