Brewery Credit Union Is A Deceiver

Posted by: |

Brewery Credit Union is a DECEIVER. They are using the Credit Union name to lure in unsuspecting consumers and pocketing your hard earned dollars with inflated service/maintenance fees and high interest rates which mirror, if not exceed, those of the giant corporate bully's. $25.05's is the fee to transfer money to and from your OWN accounts??? The staff is comprised of inept zombies. Especially at the Outpost branch where I had the unfortunate opportunity to do most of my banking. Hello, is anyone there? Repeated $5.00 monthly checking fees even though I met Brewery's 3 free checking account requirements and then called each month to fix the lack of employee skills it takes to push a few buttons to correct the issue??? I deposited a check for $500.00 and as I was walking away, looked at my transaction receipt and noticed I was negative $300.00. After further investigation, I realized the name on the receipt wasn't even mine. They put my funds in another members account. The list goes on, but I'm without additional motivation. I've wasted enough of my time, gas and hard earned dollars on them. It's a sad day when your Credit Union, which was fashioned to protect their members from the purse snatching corporate wolf, is just that. Shame on you Brewery!

One last thing. I feel extremely sad when I read reviews from people that say they have bad credit and Brewery was the only bank that will open an account for them. I'm most certain they are giving those members extremely high rates and taking advantage of their situation - just like the non Credit Union banks before the foreclosure meltdown happened. Brewery's amplitude of fees and service charges do not accommodate people who live paycheck to paycheck. Please think twice and seek out other options before choosing Brewery. Milwaukee is saturated with Credit Unions that will treat their members/owners with respect.

Additional Factors: Institutions with a small asset base, a short operating history, or negative return on assets can represent an instability risk beyond what their financial ratios indicate. Brewery Credit Union has a relatively low asset base.
