So So Bank

SEFCU is a so so bank.  Have had an account with them 23 years.  Up until a few years ago only Federal Employees could bank there, mostly were military.  Now anyone within the state can open an account.  They have grown, opened several branches and even built a new Main Bank.  They have a hugh employee turn over, you never see the same staff working.  There are a few upper level employees that have been around for a while.  Not a friendly bank, you don't get that home town feel when you walk in.

They put a 10 day hold on the all checks deposit.  I have a couple of other accounts with other banks in the area.  I once made a deposit with check funds from one of my other bank accounts and they put a 10 hold on that check!   They also posted an automatic draft to my account that was not mine.  I could see that maybe a banking staff member might have posted the draft by mistake; but they did not want to fix the problem over the phone they wanted me to come down to the bank and fill out a form.  I did get them to email me the form and allow me to fax it in.  The form put the blame on everyone but them, that I was certifiying that it was a fraudulent transaction that either someone was using my banking information (stolen) or the merchant was scamming me.  It was a small transaction and it was cleared up by the bank within 5 working days.
