They Will Hold Your Money At Whim Without Reason.

Obee for no other reason than, "Because we can." put a hold on my account without contacting me. I was away from home and my debit card declined, at first thinking, OMG. I have been hit by a spammer since I had well over a grand in my account, and I discovered my acount only had $0.72!! Nope instead they put a hold on my PAYCHECK!! Why? Did I have overdrafts??? No. never. Did I bounce checks?? No. Never..Did I owe them money?? No. Never, Did I default on loans?? No. Never. I called them and they simply told me that they put a hold on my paycheck because federally they can. Nice huh? So I needed gas to get home, my daughter was at home, did they care? No, not really. This was on a Saturday and they said they would send and "urgent" message for someone to get back to me on MONDAY. They basically told me I needed to sleep on the street until Monday. They would not lift the hold, not even on part of my check so I could get home safely. I caught them in 3 different lies in that phone conversation. Long story short, I am lucky to be alive because I had to hitchhike home. (Nope they wouldn't call a cab for me.) Nice...they put a woman in that kind of danger with the attitude of "Oh well." Try banking at Oly credit union. They don't put holds on paychecks just for the sake of a power trip.
