Tdecu Warning

This credit union used shady business tactics to take thousands of dollars from my family. If you value your money, don't use tdecu.

Don't Trust This Bank With $1

Thes people should be ashamed of themselves. My account was recently cleaned out fraudulently, and instead of reimbursing the money and handling the investigation, we were told we would have to go through the criminal court system if we wanted our money back. This is absurd. I have encountered this situation with Wells Fargo and my funds were returned later that day, but all we got from this "bank" was an attitude. The supervisor informed me that i would have to file a police report in Texas, coordinate with the investigators in NYC to pull surveillance tapes, identify this person and pursue legal action relying on his ability to pay me back. Really? My advice if want to protect your hard earned money, is to find a bank that actually cares about your business. You've been warned!

Breath of fresh air credit union

I had been a patron of a commercial bank in the northeast for well over 20 years. They were great at first, with very customer-friendly hours. Over time, and after a merger, the fees started going up and up and up, while customer service went down and down.

After a recent move, I had to choose a new bank. I chose Texas Dow Employees Credit Union, as family members belonged. I was very pleasantly surprised by the service and products. I would never go back to commercial banks. This credit union is like a family and I am very pleased with it.

Former Client

Not a user friendly bank at all and too difficult to set up online banking. They alienate you in their so called effort to protect you. By far the most difficult bank I've ever used. Setting up my business account, accessing the funds has been way too stressful. But they are friendly!

Texas Dow Employees CU

This credit union is so unorganized. Bluebonnet merged with them at the end of the month and now there are missing transactions. No one has any answers!!! Bluebonnet FCU made a BIG mistake!!!!!!!!!!
