04/28/2014Problems with Product / Service | Read Complaint Details

Called in for issues on account, a CSR of Telco did not assist problem and proceeded to be snide and rude about the issue. Issue not resolved.
The issues start the summer of 2013 where I had an incident with my checking account went negative and was charged MULTIPLE fees leaving me a balance of $-400.00, which I called in about and management told me that "this was my own fault and that next time I should be more responsible next time. I covered the negative amount and I then decided to Opt Out of any over draft protection on my account so that this would not happen again. Also, in this situation the bank proceeded to transfer money from my Telco Savings account and move it into my Telco Checking account and charged me a $30.00 fee to transfer my own money. However, when I asked about it, they did refund me the money. Well, as of Saturday April 5 and Sunday April 6, I used my card two times once at a gas station and another to purchase something else, when I checked my account via the Telco iPhone App I saw my account was positive. When I checked my account again, after these transactions on April 6th my account was $-86.00. I then checked it later that evening and it was $-127.00. I waited until Monday morning at approximately 11:00 AM Central time to call Telco Credit Union in Tyler, Texas and I spoke on the phone with a woman named *, a Telco Associate (she did not state with she was managerial or not). I told her the entire situation about how I shouldn't of been negative due to Opting Out of the overdraft protection, in which the bank covers you if you go negative, and that I shouldn't of been charged over draft fees. Brenda, the associate told me that the fees were not over draft fees, that they were just fees for going negative. I have never been informed of such fees, and have been a member with Telco since 2010. Also, she told me she did not know why I went negative and "that there was nothing she could do to help me" and "did not know what to tell me." I told Brenda that I would be coming to remove all funds from Telco on this following Friday and she proceeded to laugh at me and said "okay" and then hung up the phone on me. I have never been treated so badly by a bank before. Telco employees have never tried to help me when I tried to get answers. I will no longer bank at this financial institution.

Desired Settlement
I expect to be refunded the amount of fees that`$200.00.

Business Response
I have spoken with the member and I have addressed all of the members concerns to their satisfaction
