Very well designed website for applying for a money market account. Very fast response to application. Excellent rates on money market accounts. Also great talking to their customer service representatives.

Stay Away! My Experience Was They Need Big Improvements

Posted by: |

Their online system doesn't show you renewal setting status of your CDs.

Their system doesn't allow you to change renewal setting status of your CDs.

To change renewal status of your CDs you must call the service center and prove your identity by answering public available information questions as if you were applying for a credit card online.

Then I found they didn't enter my responses properly and I was not validated.

So then they make me send a secure message while logged in.

Then they ignored my secure message for a month. They did not reply to my secure message at all.

I wasted a lot of time due to their system and processes and it was very stressful.

Many other financial institutions treat you much better for the above situations.


Last year, my husband and I created two CDs with Connexus. They matured last week, and my husband called and wired his funds. However, they wouldn't wire my $400,000 because they said I was deceased. Even though I provided my real ID and got clearance from their Risk Management Department, they insisted that LexisNexis (whoever that is) reported I was deceased, and I would have to contact them—a third-party company they hired. That company informed me I could file a complaint, and it would take 60 days. Connexus was effectively holding my $400,000 ransom, which is illegal. Fortunately, we were able to transfer my money into my husband's account to wire it out. Had we not had another person with an account there, they would have just held onto my money for 60 days until some third party they hired fixed the error. I just opened a new account with our funds, and no one said I was deceased. I have filed complaints with every organization I can find so this doesn’t happen to someone else. Imagine if it were you with no way to get your money out while buying a house and needing the funds. Shame on Connexus!
