Low Rates And Excellent Service

Posted by: Lorraine | Jul 2, 2013

We have been using First New England for over 25 years.  We just got a new loan to consolidate some older loans.  We are always impressed with the service that we get here.  Everything is explained well and set up for online payments that make it so easy and convenient. If you have good credit, they always have the lowest rates around. Thank you Cindy for all you do.  We will never get a loan anywhere else!

Rewards Checking

Posted by: cjdtech | Dec 8, 2010

If you opened a rewards checking account when rates were better, close it now! They charged me a $10 fee for not meeting the ACH requirement, and they didn't even send me a disclosure ahead of time that stated such! Their site still maintains it is a "free" checking account when the requirements aren't met, but obviously there's strings to that.

What kind of financial institution changes the rules without fully notifying customers of the change and allowing them full access to those rules? FNEFCU would fit into that category.

Terrible Bank-Customer Service

Fees are terrible, customer service terrible, rates terrible. Stay away from this bank.
I needed to withdrawal money from my account, I tried to call and left 4 messages letting them know what I needed to do. No one ever answered the phone, I left 4 messages, no one ever called back.
When I went to the bank to get the money they wouldn't let me have my own money because I didn't get an approval. I couldn't get an approval because they don't answer the damn phone and they don't call back when you leave messages!
But also they wouldn't give me MY OWN MONEY!
Terrible customer service. I strongly recommend anyone to stay away from this bank.

Stay Away ! Far Away!

Had a rewards checking account that fell into disuse.

To keep it active, I would write a check for a few dollars once a year.

It had a balance of approx $350.

The other day I found out that, despite "activity" they began charging me $15 a month

for the past 2 years. My $350 turned into $50.

They basically stole my money.

When I pointed out to them that their REWARDS checking account disclosure said

"No service charges" and something to the effect that if you didn't maintain the Rewards Checking account

activity level, they would revert the account to a FREE CHECKING account, they told me "to bad"

Can you imagine having $200 stolen from you without so much as a letter, e-mail, phone call?


They said that they were "planning" on notifying people in this situation in the future.

Stay away !

Stay far awy!


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. Finex has a relatively low asset base.
