Don't Bother With A Mail-In Application...

I mailed in a application and never heard from the credit union. After about 10 days I called and spoke to a CSR who ask for my SS# to look for my application. Unable to find it she placed me on hold and called the "operations" person who informed her they had never recieved one from me??? Futher, she said they do not bother to reply to prospective customers who they reject (???) but just shred their applications!!!
