Rates And Charges

Something is happening at PLCU and it's not good. Share rates are dropping like lead flies and they now have started charging for their on-line Bill Pay service, which was previously free. Their rationale for charging is that they can no longer stand the approximately $7.00 per user that the outside bill payer service charges PLCU per month, so must charge half that amount to each user. This while other CU's have stopped charging and added services.

PLCU's rates have wallowed at the bottom of the local CU pile, while others offer rates a percent, or even two in some cases, higher for the same time frame in IRA and time deposits. PLCU offers no specials on short or interim time deposits to invite capital into their hands. 

Finally, communications to their management and even superviisory committee go unheeded, which is, to me, a really bad sign of problems at the top. I don't think they want to communicate with the depositors at all. In my case, it didn't matter as my funds went elsewhere. But for others, looking at your Health rating, maybe it's time to take a closer look and see what's going on here that might or might not give you comfort about this CU.

Horrible Bank! Can't Even Give Them One Star!

This is the WORST bank you will ever go to. Do yourself a favor and never go.
The worst customer service, will be on hold forever and don't ever be late on a payment
because your now in the "collection department" and will be treated like a criminal.
The same kind of person who likes giving someone a parking ticket is the same
kind of person you will deal with. And if you ask to speak to a manager, they
won't let you. They will keep you on hold forever and then conveniently hang
up on you. The worst!
