Post-Merger Chaos

I was a member of Prevail prior to the merger. 5 accounts plus credit card & mortgage.

Despite all assurances that nothing would change, I've had nothing but problems. You can't reach anyone, and if by some miracle you do they're unresponsive and unhelpful. Whatever problem I've had it's "That's just the new policy" or "Sorry, there's nothing I can do." I'm getting delinquent notices on my mortgage despite it being current and up to date. Electronic payment transactions now take a week, regardless of whether the payee is part of Harborstone. They also now debits your accounts days before the payee receives electronic fund transfers.

I am now researching a new home for my money and my mortgage. I've already replaced the credit card, and shut off all direct deposits & automatic payments.

Stay away - go to BECU if you want a credit union

Its A Privelage To Bank With HS LOL

This bank has some of the most unprofessional employees I have ever seen.  Ego takes presidence.  Stay Clear

Charges From The Account

I seem to have a problem with this credit union withdrawing the larger abount first and then a smaller amount.  There have been times where there was enough in my account to pay for the small amount and not get an overdraw fee of $30 but they processed the larger amount first, charged me $30 for that and then took the small amount out and charged me another $30.  Wells Fargo never did this to me.  They always took the smaller amount out.  It used to be a good credit union, when I was with them years ago, but now they are getting to big and they don't care about their customers.  I have done a few test runs with this credit union and everytime the larger amout clears first and then the smaller amout clears.  I will be taking my business else where that does not practice this kind of money making scheme.  

Shambolic Mess Of An Amateur Credit Union STAY AWAY

I came as one of the Prevail customers. Their bill paying software does whatever it wants, whenever it wants. Sometimes it send bills three days early, sometimes a week late. I've called about this several times, gotten NSF fees refunded for those bills sent early, and then have to talk my vendors out of charging me late fees when HS's bill payer doesn't work.

It would take less time to write checks, but since they put an incomplete account number on my membership card, I had to reorder my new check, and don't have them yet.

Right now it's a Thursday at 4 o'clock, and online banking has been down for unscheduled maintenance for hours. Customer service says it's not IT's job to tell them what's up.
