When I started doing business with CFCU I didn't have perfect credit and was afraid of being told no when I needed a loan. The bank worked with me and got a loan and with their help I refinanced my car with their bank. The people are great they have excellent customer service and friendly. I have since moved all my business over to them and have a great credit score compared to what I use to have. I would recommend this bank to anyone who wants a great experience.
