First Trade Union Bank Login Restriction = No E-Mail!

Monday, July 8, 2013 - 11:30 AMFirst Trade Union Bank - Details
First Trade Union Bank (FTUB) revised its' online logon procedure
this weekend requiring entry of a "security code" before completing
the login process.

FTUB will only send you this "security code" via (1) Telephone, or
(2) Text message to a mobile phone.  Problem is that if you don't
happen to have access to either of these, you cannot login!  If
you're displeased with this no-email restriction please let FTUB
know (e-mail, phone contacts below).

All others (ALLY, SFGI, etc.) that have implemented this handshake
also provide the "security code" via the more convenient e-mail route.

When I contacted FTUB here's the reply I got:
