Absolutely incredible financial institution. They are ethical, honest and real people. They are helpful and go above and beyond to help. The loan process is very easy and the rates are great. I highly recommended.

The loan officer helped me and coached me on how to fix my credit.  Now I'm on my way to financial peace! I couldnt have done it without Southeast!  Thanks

A Good Credit Union

I have had a very positive experience banking with Southeast Financial! I banked with another credit union before switching to Southeast Financial, and that credit union was not nearly as good. I really like SFCU.

Good luck on getting online banking to work. If you have a problem with your balance being wrong forget calling the fraud line. My balance was off ,so I called to report it,rep kept asking if I was reporting fraud,tried to explain to her that I have a Cd that x amount of money is transferred into checking on 1st business day of month. Explained that balance was wrong to what it should be, she said so someone committed fraud, I said I don't know, did with holding go up in 2023 ,is how much did you transfer and how much did you with hold, she said I can't tell you that, I ask her how I knew fraud was committed or with holding changed, she said I can't tell you the dollar amount in your account, I said if you can't tell me the amount you moved from Cd to checking and the date you done it, how the hell do I know if someone made a fraudulent draw or that Southeast Finance made a mistake? She said that's just left up to you if fraud was committed. I have 1 ira,1 Cd, and 3 annuities with this bunch, but you better believe I will take the penalty and roll all this over asap.

Horrible Experience

Posted by: |

I've been using SFCU for several years and they have put a hold on my card probably 8 times now for "fraudulent" activity when I was just using it the way I always do. They never checked with me first or let me know after they did it. $32 overdraft fee and $1.50 "daily negative balance fee." There is no way to reach them on nights or weekends at all. I'm switching to a bank as soon as possible.

False Reports To Credit Bureaus

Posted by: |

Beware- very unethical in reporting to credit bureaus, falsely will state that loans are student loans so that the loans can not be discharged by any means, when in fact the loan was not a student loan. This credit union has done shady business with the likes of The College Network, in which all you have to do is google their unethical behavior and fraud on healthcare professionals.

Beware of this company.

Very Unprofessional!
