Questionable Ties

If you have any accounts in this Houston area credit union, please beware. I have received information from an employee who has found out this institution has at least indirect ties to far-right wing groups-quite possibly the KKK. I cannot emphasize enough the fact that the individual provided NO proof, or mention any names, but has guaranteed there is reason to believe that at least one employee belongs to a radical organization and was hired despite the fact the credit union had full knowledge of this person's affiliations. Please, please, please beware. Where there's smoke, there's fire.

Bait And Switch

I joined this credit union to get a low interst rate they advertised for a new car loan, so I opened an account with $50.00. Applied for the loan and they come back with a much higher rate than stated on the site. When I questioned about the rate I was told I had to sign up for auto bill pay and one of two other options to get the lower rate. I was also informed that this is stated on their website (it is buried 3 pages deep but not on the main page where they BOAST their low rate). I ended up financing the car through the dealer at a lower rate than they FCCU would provide. I then requested to close the account I had opened and was informed I had to pay a $20.00 FEE for not keeping the money in their bank for more than 12 months. REALLY!!! Stay away from these scam artist.
