Not Too Good

Posted by: marwan007 | May 22, 2013

After 3 months I returned my CreditCard and closed the account. The people at the CEFCU are nice and try to help, but that's about all. Their politics dictate a standard way of doing things, if you need anything different from that they not cooperative. I don't like to got to the big banks, but I don't see any alternative.
