Closing Of Branches And Poor Website For On-Line Banking

Closing the Temecula and Murrieta branches has left customers isolated and dependent upon the old branch ATMs and the on-line banking system. Now, the Temecula bank ATM has been boarded up, and the on-line banking since January 11 does not allow Verizon customers to log-in to do business with the bank. The bank says that it is Verizon's fault - speed of the internet service - but Verizon technicians find that the speeds are no different than they were a week ago. In today's market, this is poor business process for customers. Hopefully, Altura will do a better investigation of the program and will provide solutions and communication with customers with the options and results.
