Empeople CU Is Garbage!

Posted by: |

Unfortunately my Credit Union of over 40 years decided to merge with Empeople not too long ago. On the surface, this seemed like a good move. They would become more modern by actually having mobile deposits and utilizing Zelle to transfer monies. However, I just got jammed with an overdraft fee that I have NEVER encountered in my time with the other credit union. I called to find out what happened and the customer service person (who was very kind and helpful) explained that this is what Empeople does...charge you for overdraft. What??? That's the whole purpose of having overdraft protection...so you don't get hit with fees. I had (more than enough) money in my savings to cover the difference. I could see being charged a fee if I didn't have the money and they had to 'cover me' until I deposited enough to cover the amount. Also, a nice feature they let die...branch sharing. Now there are no local branches where I can easily do my banking with them. I'll be moving my business elsewhere for sure.
