Banking at Vystar Credit Union

Posted by: |

I have been banking with Vystar Credit Union for over 10 years. I am always very pleased with their customer service and they are always able to answer all of my questions. I have a checking and savings account through them as well as a savings account for my son. My rate is excellent! There is a mobile app so I constantly have access to know my money. Some banks charge a fee to have an active account and Vystar has never charged me any fees. I prefer to bank with a credit union over a larger institution.

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!!!

Deposit Available In 11Days?

I made a deposit on May 7, and after speaking with the Vystar representative today, she told me that this deposit will be available on May 18. Eleven days to make it available?
Can you believe this? It is completely out of sense.
The day after I deposited the check, it was cashed from the account of the person who did not issue the check.
We are very unhappy with this bank, "WE DO NOT RECOMMEND THIS BANK, LOOK FOR ANOTHER OPTION"
