Awful Experiences

This credit union has been horrible! I have 2 loans with them. I thought one was going to be paid off until they came back to tell me that I had 6 payments that were skipped! (I had to contact them to find this out). I have payed every month and my money clearly has been misplaced! This is not the first time. They also cannot make a simple change of address or record an accurate phone number. I attempted three times via mail and fax to change my address, and they finally did it when my mom had to take it in. (I live out of state). Then they recorded the wrong phone number, and claim that that is why I was never notified of the skipped payments. I guess the mail isn't a method they considered. I now have been waiting for three weeks to get the documentation on the loan where they lost my payments that were cleared and sent directly to them from my bank. Wow. I really wonder how they are allowed to handle people's money. My advice is to stay clear.
