Overall Positive, But Current Rates Not Competitive

Posted by: |

I've had Nusenda accounts for years but will be moving on:
1) personal savings account with bare minimum on deposit, just to have a safe deposit box costing a modest $15/year. I'll be moving out of the area and will have to settle with a new bank that charges $60/year for the same size box.
2) business checking account for a small LLC; as the business savings increased I put most in a 11 month CD with Nusenda at a decent rate. I am moving the checking account functions to a CFG Bank Money Manager account that is earning 4.37% interest, so I will invest the CD funds elsewhere when the CD matures and say goodbye to Nusenda.
They have consistently been polite when I have come in to access the safe deposit box, and I haven't had any difficulties using their website.

Remember This Review When They Do The Same To You

This is the absolute worst "bank" in the world. Zero ethics and accountability. I work with banks everyday and I would rather work with B of A. Yes this local CU is worse than any bank I have ever worked with. They need investigated for their credit reporting practices. As well as truth in lending. Stay far away from them.
