I Like It, As Advertised

Good rewards system (2% interest checking). The staff are friendly. Been using this for about a year. ATM rewards have happened without a hitch. I use ACH from a different bank which quals for direct deposit. I do a bunch of $1 payments for my internet payment which counts as my required transactions. Overall, good stuff and I'm happy. No issues and convenient locations for me in Birmingham, AL.

Overdraft Fees And Transfer Problems

Posted by: radgirl | Apr 9, 2012

Please tell me why Legacy only allows 6 online transactions per month? If you have computer banking why only 6? Also why do they transfer 3.00 at a time from your savings when you are about to overdraw and then charge you 3.00 to do it? Is this a ploy to use up your 6 transactions because even if you have money in your savings to cover any overdraw they will not transfer any more money after 6 transfers have been made(these include any you have already made) and will then start charging you 36.00 per overdraw regardless of how much money you have in savings which is supposed to be linked to your checking. I really don't want a useless 3.00 transfer if it's going to use up one of my 6 transactions and I'm going to be charged 3.00 for the service. I discussed this practice with my coworkers and no one could believe the way they handle their online banking.The consensus was why have online banking if it's so limited and how ineffective their overdraft protection was. I'm starting to wonder if this isn't just another way for them to insure fees without being as obvious a bigger banking  institutions as they tout themselves as being smaller and more about their customers. If they were really about their customers they would figure out a better solution for their overdraft protection and their computer banking.

Like Every Other Financial Institution In The World, Legacy Does Not Care About Its Customers.

Legacy is out to "grab all the gusto" just as every other financial institute in this greedy country. Their care for customers is a front.

Attorney's Fees

Posted by: Andrew_R | Dec 28, 2011

We had an account for 26 years. Temporary financial hardship delayed our ability to pay the Mastercard on time for 2 months. Legacy handed our account over to attorneys. The statement that was $2,914.32, now is $3,892.96, with Attorney's Fees of $971.43. That's like a 33.5% interest, but it's not the "members" who are getting it. It's attorneys. Nice customer service! And to think we were about to move all our financial accounts over the Legacy... whew!
