I cashed a check for someone on a Friday and was told I could only get have them the other half once the checked cleared. So on the following Wednesday the check cleared and the money was released. On Friday the told me that the check was nsf. So the I said how could it be NSF if you cleared it and released the money to me. I was told that they give the banks an extra day to deposit the funds. But as the customer their policy is half when cashing check and other half upon clearing the check. Well I was giving the rest of the check so as the customer I'm under the impression that everything was good. The check cleared. Well they wanted me to repay the check plus the NSF fees. I said fat chance and was and still willing to take it to court. Needless to say I no longer bank there.
I tried to open an account for my husband who has some mental health issues I was given the runaround and as we went to the process they wanted more and more verification then proceeded to tell me that it's standard policy when in fact I know that's a lie because somebody very close to us has an account with them did it completely online which is why we chose to go that route to begin with. Big waste of time not helpful or friendly 1,000% do not recommend would give it negative 5 Stars if I could
“They are people helping people. That's what O Bee stands for!”
They should really Rethink this mission statement.
I got approved for a car loan purchased my car through a dealership and before the first payment was due the car started falling apart. After multiple attempts to contact dealer I never got a call back to rectify the situation. I returned the car to the dealer after TWO weeks. Like I said before I was required to make the first payment. Covid happened and I was in full communication with Obee in which I was able to pay what I could.
Then I lost both my jobs and become homeless but was still paying what I could. I had to turn to a debt relief program where I would still be paying my debt but In payments that I could afford.
If what they say in their mission statement had any truth to it then I would think that they would work with people who were trying their best to pay their bills.
It wasn’t like I drove the car for months then decided “meh I don’t want this anymore” it wasn’t like I am not willing to pay my bill. According to my debt relief program they are super aggressive going after me with court summons, not caring if I’m homeless again, not willing to do payment plans to help “people” not be homeless again.
So much for their mission statement. They are liars. Don’t do business with them.
Obee for no other reason than, "Because we can." put a hold on my account without contacting me. I was away from home and my debit card declined, at first thinking, OMG. I have been hit by a spammer since I had well over a grand in my account, and I discovered my acount only had $0.72!! Nope instead they put a hold on my PAYCHECK!! Why? Did I have overdrafts??? No. never. Did I bounce checks?? No. Never..Did I owe them money?? No. Never, Did I default on loans?? No. Never. I called them and they simply told me that they put a hold on my paycheck because federally they can. Nice huh? So I needed gas to get home, my daughter was at home, did they care? No, not really. This was on a Saturday and they said they would send and "urgent" message for someone to get back to me on MONDAY. They basically told me I needed to sleep on the street until Monday. They would not lift the hold, not even on part of my check so I could get home safely. I caught them in 3 different lies in that phone conversation. Long story short, I am lucky to be alive because I had to hitchhike home. (Nope they wouldn't call a cab for me.) Nice...they put a woman in that kind of danger with the attitude of "Oh well." Try banking at Oly credit union. They don't put holds on paychecks just for the sake of a power trip.
