Customer Service

Posted by: |

I spoke to customer service today about a charge on my debit card.
The representative was Richard Herrin and he was very informative, patient and extremely helpful. After researching my inquiry, we decided to put a stop pay on the charge in question.
Thank you so much for taking your time to research this charge!

Penalized For Being A Victim Of Fraud

***UPDATE: VyStar contacted me and resolved my issue. I am satisfied! Thank you.***

I am a victim of fraud and VyStar is penalizing me for it. I did not physically lose nor lost my card. I did not give out my information to anyone illegitimate. It got hacked into and money stolen from it. Vystar is charging me a liability fee when I was always told by them that the money is federally insured, and in case of illegitimate transactions, all of it will be refunded to me. I thought that a credit union like Vystar will give me piece of mind, but in reality there are just as careless, incompetent, and profit driven as Big Banks. Vystar is supposed to be non-profit. Why are they making members pay for their insecure cards? Members are NOT at fault because VyStar cybersecurity safeguards are too weak to withstand hacking. It is VyStar’ responsibility to place electronic safeguards on the cards ISSUED BY THEM. It’s bad enough that hard earned money was stolen from me, but now the institution that is supposed to protect my money is stealing it again.

What Has Happened To Vystar??

I went to Vystar 10 years ago, never a problem, now all of a sudden it takes 6-8 weeks to credit a deposit from England...funny that, we have 3 direct deposits going in like clock work from England, one comes in the mail, always go to the branch for this one has taken 10 days to post...NOW ITS 6-8 WEEKS THE SAME FLIPPING CHECK FROM THE SAME COMPANY!!! at a cost of 120.00 a year to post this check!!! Vystar needs to wake up or they will be losing many customers!!!

Couldn't Be More Disappointed

Posted by: |

My father passed away August 4th. my sister flew down to Florida from Boston within a week or so of it, which is where his children live, to in person hand in a death certificate and a legal notarized letter stating who could deal with the estate. However it is Christmas next week and none of us have received any bit of mail from them. Even though they said they have already sent it. And no checks to close out the account from his estate. We have sent everything they requested, including a link to his obituary! Can you belive they asked for that! They give us excuse after excuse. It's hard enough with this being the first Christmas without him, but now this is carrying on and i still have to be dealing with it. Couldn't be more disappointed with the lack of shame that this credit union has. Who knows when we will be getting our fathers processed from this account. The only saving grace is the people I've talked to are very polite, however that doesn't help me be done with this.
