Great Card, Great Bank Helpful to 1 out of 1 people

I'm rebuilding my credit after divorce, and I applied for this card after less than a year with the credit union. They approved me for a $1000 credit line, even though I'm still rebuilding my score.

I love my bank

I could say many things about previous banks that I've had but nothing negative about citadel I have been banking with them for five years and have never had an issue. I have no credit and the branch manager was so kind enough to start me a trust card which required a deposit of my own money but after a year I got it all back and my credit score went from 0 to 350 it's still very low but I am new to the credit game and hope to continue being financially stable and increasing my score years to come! 😊

Sneaky fees and withdrawls

When I took out a car loan I was required to open an account with a minimum of $5.00. My car payment was automatically deducted from my checking account at another bank. One month after my last car payment I noticed that they deducted another payment from my account without my knowledge or permission. Who knows how long they would have kept deducting this if I didn't notice it. I called and they acted like it was no big deal and said that they deposited the payment it into my original $5 account. They agreed to send me a check for the unapproved withdraw. I got the check minus another $5 (without my permission) which they said the left in my account, which now gave me a total of $10.00 in my account. Then they started to charge me $5.00 per month, without warning, for not meeting the minimum balance on an account that I did not want in the first place. Next time I need a car loan or any other loan I will not go to Citadel. My advice is: do not trust them!!!

I bank with them. This guy's a moron for not reading what he signs. 5 dollars is required for membership with the credit union. Everyone has a savings account. Thats the difference between a bank and a credit union-you own part of the company youre borrowing from. If you got the loan at a dealer or signed in a branch, you had a membership application. It is also your responsibility to stop your automatic transfers. If the loan is paid off, they put it in your savings account. They also send you statements..did you look at them? Its called fiscal responsibility...why didn't you close the account after getting the check? Someone needs a lesson in not being a lazy dumbass.

 I have been a member of Citadel FCU for over 25 years.  They are more than a bank, they treat you like family.  The company fairly compensates there employees, keeping them happy to make the customer experience pleasant.

 These people harassed the hell out of me after I had a kidney transplant and could not pay my bill They even had one teller ask me for a payment and announce that my card payment was late while I was in line at the bank conducting business which I believe is probably against the law. Then after i paid off the card which was a MasterCard issued by Atlantic Employees before Citadel took Atlantic over, Citadel listed two cards in my credit report one being the MasterCard with a credit card account number and the other supposedly being the Visa the MasterCard was transferred into. Only thing is Citadel never really gave me a Visa Card so they listed my actual savings and checking account number in my credit report as the Visa card number. I have since closed all my accounts with Citadel and filed a complaint with the attorney general's office Anyone working in a credit reporting office Equifax Transunion etc had access to my name, ss number, and bank account number which gave them access to my money along with all the scumbags who could access my report for God knows what reason.
