Great Experience - Great Service

I have been using credit unions for many years now. Up until I began banking at Capcom FCU, I was not too thrilled with my experiences. Several things at Capcom changed my view on Credit Unions in general. First, the customer service here is amazing. When you walk in you are greeted with a smile, which is very uncommon at the other credit unions I've been to. Secondly, they always have plenty tellers to handle the busy times of day. If you go during a busy time period, you can still make it in and out within 10 minutes. Other credit unions will have you waiting in line for what seems like 30 minutes because they are understaffed. Thirdly, the rates they offer on their checking accounts are unbeatable anywhere else. I have never incurred any type of fees with my savings account or checking account in all the years I have been with them.

Worst Credit Union Ever

I have always heard good things about Capcom so my husband and I decided to give them a try. My husband was so excited because of all the great things that we heard ,he wanted to close all of our money market and business account and bring everything over. I told him lets check it out first me being skeptical lets see if it's as great as they say. We opened a joint checking account for paying our bills only and had half of our paychecks going into the account. We are only allowed to have one sign on for online banking which I thought was weird just learned that today. Here is my issue on Sept 22 my husband deposited a Teller check from our mortgage company,a little over 900. The teller put a two day hold on the check and did not tell my husband. Being that I used to be a banker I assumed the check wouldn't be available until the next business day so on the sept 23 i made a car payment for a little over 300 and made a few small purchases under 50. Capcom charged me $100. I called their customer services line they told me i was spending money I didn't have and refused to refund the fees. They told me that they are not for profit so it isn't important for them to get fees from us, so I said since you are not for profit as a courtesy to your customer you shouldn't have a problem reversing the fees. They wanted to give me 45 dollars back. She not sure her name told me it is my responsibility to read the receipt regardless of what was told to me by the teller. I refused to take that so I went into my local bank, surely they will be nicer and more understanding. I spoke with Tammy she proceed to tell me about overdraft privilege works. I told her I already know how it works that is not what i'm talking about. The problem is the teller should have told us that there is a hold on the account a two day hold at that we are not new customers so no need for two business days hold. Tammy told me it is based on the tellers discretion so if the teller believe the check will not clear he has a right to put a hold on the check. I understand that but why didn't he tell me this? Her response was that it is my responsibility to read stuff and not listen to what the teller tells me. Tammy the capcom rep told he I shouldn't be using money I didn't have. That really pissed me off because the check was a cashier's check from my mortgage company and the money was already available but they put a hold on it. Wells Fargo got into trouble for lying to their clients should they be held accountable for not reading the fine print? I will never bank here if I can't trust my banker and I have to constantly be reading the fine print to ensure i'm getting what they tell me i'm getting. The teller SAID the check will be available tomorrow. Their online bank account shows the money fully available too it's all so you can "use money that you don't have " how rude !They are a bunch of liars and thieves they did that so they could get my 100 bucks. Needless to say i'm closing my account. Nothing spectacular about them I will stick to for profit banks. Credit Union are fake taking money from people and hiding under the Non-profit name to avoid taxes.
