The West Coast Federal Employees Credit Union was the first organization I ever banked with. I used them through my parents Federal Jobs and began banking with them at the age of 16. I opened a checking, ATM, and credit account as well an auto loan. The customer service was exceptional, most of the tellers knew my name without needing to ask, and would go out of their way to help, to explain, and to fix any issues we encountered. They were efficient and they did not charge fees for their services. They were there to provide a good, decent, honest banking service to their members and did not appear to be out to make every single penny they could on us. When I moved to a new state, giving up this account was extremely difficult, and as a result of the experience have always recommended credit unions to anyone looking for a bank.
On March 23, 2012 I was given a Cashier's Check drawn on the West Coast Federal Employees Credit Union as payment for a trailer. When I went to the CU they refused to honor the check! The told me they could only honor a check up to $1,000. If that's the case, why did they issue a check for more? How does an institution issue a check and refuse to honor it without committing fraud?
In addition the cashiers were rude and gave conflicting stories about their policies. One even told me that a Cashier's Check was not a guarantee that there were funds available! I've had better experiences at the DMV.
I would not give any stars, but it's necessary in order to post the review.
