Scam - Beware
mleib2 Account Holder

I called to cancel my Connexus account that had been created when I took a loan with Aqua Finance, they told me that I can't close my account and that it MUST remain open with the $5 in it until the full balance of the loan with Aqua Finance is paid off. I am disgusted by this practice, which essentially holds "MEMBERS" ransom to whatever terms & conditions this business decides are fit. From the comments, it appears to be recurring monthly charges after a certain amount of time has passed by. Stay far away from this company, as well as Aqua Finance if you can. They are pure scam artists.

After 6+ years as a loyal customer, I was APPAULED by the way I was treated by customer service. I was told they would not even be willing to research an ERROR THEY MADE to my account because it was older than 90 days. I was then told if I wanted them to look into it further, I would incur a RESEARCH FEE. This bank is a joke. They lured me into this checking account with an interest rate that has steadily dropped over the past few years. The terms for ATM fee reimbursement are complex and designed to screw you over when you come up short at the end of the month. EXTREMELY LIMITED NO-FEE ATMS AND BRANCHES. The online banking system is pathetic, constant updates and down time, all for a product that is inferior to other leading banks. I could not be more dissapointed with the way this bank has treated me. I will be moving to a bank that ACTS WITH INTEGRITY.

Aqua Finance & Mystery Savings Account
flowerlilly31 Account Holder

p { margin-bottom: 0.1in; line-height: 120%; }

I applied for and got financing for a Depure whole house water filtration system. Apparently this financing was through Aqua Finance, ok sure. Then I get a call from Connexus Credit Union welcoming me and talking about setting up online or did I have any questions... Yes, my question is why do you think I have an account with yall when I don't. "Oh, didn't they tell you that your Aqua Finance loan is through us and that to have the loan you have to be a member and at least have a savings account so it automatically comes as part of the loan??" ..... No, they didn't tell me that but I'm guessing it is in the fine print somewhere. Sneaky, conniving, rats.

Few days later I get an auto mailer asking for all of my personal information for "my account". I didn't sign up for the account, I don't want the account, I'm not about to send my social security number to some random auto mailer, if they own the loan then I have to assume that they have all the information from my application. If they are for real then they don't need the data but if they are scammers... not worth finding out.

For those warning of a $5 scam- there is a loan affliaition most likely with Aqua Fiance or Culligan that started this account. That you did authorize. Your beef is with your original loan.

I recently received a notice from this organization about my 'existing' account with a beginning balance of $5 and request for information with w9.  I never opened an account with this organization, nor did they have my approval to have an open account in my name.

Their letters are a predatory banking practice strictly prohibited by law that contains much misleading verbiage.

Same story as others. Received a letter regarding my account "membership" with fees attached. I have never opened an account or even heard of Connexus before this. Not sure how this can be legal.

Opened an account without my knowledge
CreditRebel Account Holder

Like most of the other one star reviews (see a pattern here?), Connexus opened an account for me without my permission. They put $5 into the account, and are  charging me monthly fees for the account. They claim my mortgage company opened the accounts for me. Calling my mortgage company, they claim they have no relationship with Connexus, that they haven't opened any accounts for me, and when asked, stated that my loan has not been sold to Connexus.

Staff was very unhelpful, and refused to put me through to any high level management/executive's office. They did transfer me to the fraud department where I waited on hold for far too long, and had to disconnect to take care of work.

Maybe Connexus is the new Well's Fargo.

Deceptive, fraudulent.
DeleriumEndless Account Holder

I had a loan through a company that Connexus Credit Union purchased, and I paid the whole thing in full over a year ago. When I paid it off, I asked them to close the entire account, and went through their "account closing" process. 

A year plus later, I get this packet in the mail informing me that I "have an account" with them (in the amount $5.00) and requesting all my personal information to "complete the process". I don't want an account with them, I shouldn't have an account with them, and I found their statements to be both deceptive and bordering on fraud. 

The application with the original company, "Aqua Finance", was easy and the loan servicing was great. It's just these new guys, Connexus, who are skeevy. When I called them the customer service rep seemed to know exactly why I was calling, so that makes me think a lot of people are probably just as upset as I am about this.
