This Place Is A Joke!

If I could rate this zero stars I would. My husband was member of Texas One for MANY years.. and then Primeway bought them out. We never really had any problems with Texas One. He had a truck financed through them and paid off the truck over 2 years ago. When Primeway took over, they are now reporting on our credit EVERY QUARTER that we are OVER 120 DAYS LATE. Excuse me, but please enlighten me on how we are late on something that has been paid off for two years. Ontop of that, since we are "delinquent" on an account that is paid off, we are not able to use our account to make any purchases. ABSOLUTELY RIDICULOUS. We have repeatedly talked to people about this issue and every time we get the same old "oh my gosh we are so sorry we will take care of this immediately" and then by the time the next quarterly update comes in its the same BS. Definitely closing our account down with them and will NEVER go back to them again. Primeway is a joke.


Having been a customer with Cameron Credit Union, then Texas One and now Primeway for 28 yrs. consecutively  I will be running as fast as I can from this bunch of IDIOTS. I was a victim of a purse theft. Without going into laborious detail the bank has now victimized me again by not shutting my account down immediately. I am now left with trying to submit fraud charges to Telecheck and the police because the theives have been writing $2500.00 checks on my account! Any other institution would have taken immediate action but the branch manager couldn't be bothered to meet with me in person ( I was told she was indeed in the building). This is not the way I expect my money and myself to be treated. They have broken a trust.

Close Your Account When Your Finished!!

I financed my car through PW and everything was fine. Once my car was paid off, they would send me statements about how much was in my acct, $39 and some change. I called them to ask where it came from. Apparently, they put $25 in your account to keep it open throughout your loan, the difference was interest. They take back the $25 when you close. I thought I would leave it open to accrue interest insted of getting a check for $14. Now, almost a year later, they take out $10/mo for a 'non active' fee, then another $4 for a 'below $25' fee! When I tried to call and have them close it, they told me to fax the request, so i did. A month later (yesterday), another statement with the above deducted. I called again today, ready to raise heck, but the service lady was nice and said 'no problem, we will close your acct'. Lets see what next month brings...

Primeway And There Hold

I deposited a Comptroller check into my account on july 26th, I was told $200 would be available on Monday . Today is Monday and there is still a hold, now they say Tuesday . Why? The rest was said to be released in 5 days which would be Friday, now they say Monday. Why? I will be closing my account after this. This isn't a check written by someone to me this is a guaranteed check.
