Very Good Customer Service

I opens an account with Sun east federal credit union the week before Christmas because of their cd special (3.5% for 27 months). after I got accepted and could not figure out how to fund the account through their website. So I called their CR and she was helpful but said I could not initiate a transfer from their website. Also told me that I needed to fund the account by Dec. 26th or she(Melissa) could not honor the 27 month cd special. I was upset because it was Saturday the 22nd when she told me this information, so I knew that I could not initiate a transfer and get the funds into the account by that date because of the Holiday (Christmas). So I started the process anyway and left an email through their bank about this situation. I received an email back from Samatha (from call center lead) on dec 26th that she would help. So she said she would honor the cd special when she got the funds. My bank had deducted the funds from my account( December 24th) and they were on hold to be accepted from sun east. They were accepted and sun east honored their special thanks to Samatha.

7.5%? $1,000 Limit!

7.5% sounds like a great CD rate. It is. However, the minimum AND maximum are $1,000.00!


If I knew that the dealership was using this company I would have backed out the deal before buying this car. I had to do a skip pay.I was told that I could use it for the next month from one lady.The other was rude and said that I couldn't use it. I asked for a supervisor and know one returned the call.

Not Nice And No Compassion

Posted by: |

There was a mix up that involved incoming ACH push and pull requests going to the wrong account. This caused an unintended overdraft which produced a penalty assessment. It seems to have come about due to a code error. No matter, each time brought a service charge of $36. Calls to credit union were greeted with sarcastic responses, a harsh lecture, and a mean spirited response. They was no evidence of compassion and a strict insistence that the assessed fee was hard and fast since they affirm that it was not their fault. Suggestions by multiple agents were impractical and/or ill advised. Take your assets to a financial institution that care about you as a client.
