Manipulate There Policies To Create Revenue .

I have had now 3 times that GNCU has put a hold on my deposits to create non- sufficient fund charges on my account. It is a way for them to manipulate their policies against you. They have taken my deposits and run them through within 24 to 48 hours normally. However, when they know that they can manipulate their polices they will hold your deposits for 3 - 4 days. In order to discuss any issue in this form they only have you use message system, denying direct contact with a customer representative. I am done dealing with this manipulation. I would recommend not having any money in this Credit Union, as what I see is that they do not care about how they treat their customers. Personally I really feel that I would not give them any star rating for this reason.

Beware the of the fees .

This Credit Union has too many fees and not enough of an opportunity to avoid them . Marginal customer service and restrictive policies. If you are financially responsible do not bank here. They will fee you to insolvency.
