Re: Complaint-**** ********* ** *******

Dear Ms. *****,

This letter is written in response to your correspondence received 10/23/2013, concerning the above
referenced complaint requesting to have all accounts removed from his credit reports. The complaint
alleges that the accounts do not belong to the member.

On February 21, 2013 the first loan was opened in the amount of $40,000. All documentation required to
support a real estate loan was obtained from the member including a Statement of Identification where the
member Drivers License and Social Security card were presented to a Registered Notary Public. During
the loan origination process the member provided required documentation to support a name change due
to a change of marital status.

In early April 20 13, the member contacted the credit union requesting that we increase the loan amount.
We explained that a new loan must be originated and the old loan paid off, the new loan funded on May 11 , 2013. He was vested on title with his new married name.

In August of 2013, the member sold the property and the loan was paid off. I will note that there were
several transactions on both loans including several loan payments. It is also noted that we have
correspondence in file that was sent to us from the same email that is listed as customer contact
information on the complaint that the member has submitted to the Better Business Bureau.

All activity and transactions on the account have been reviewed to ensure that our member was identified
and that the loan is reporting to the credit reporting agencies in accordance with established protocols.
We regret that we are unable to make the requested adjustment of the reporting of these accounts to the
credit bureaus. This decline is in all fairness to our members to ensure the accuracy and integrity of the
information that is provided to the credit reporting agencies by California Coast Credit union.

Additional Notes

Complaint: I have been trying to coordinate a time for me to sign paperwork on a loan for a car for quite some time now. I've had the flu and told them I wasn't feeling well and on top of the that, I work graveyard shifts and can't stay up passed 9:00am. Constantly they told me that I have to make an appoointment to come in and sign and many times no one would get back to me. Last week I attempted yet again to come in and sign the paperwork, they said AGAIN that they will have, "someone call me" and AGAIN by the time they called it was at 1:00pm and I had been asleep since 9:00. I'd tired of this run around. I call them all the time right when they open and they never accomodate me. Why didn't they have any sympathy when I told them I had the flu, why dont they have any sympathy to set something up while I'm still up. I've told them again and again, "I need to come in immediately and sign" and they always tell, "we'll have someone call you back." I'm tired of it.

Desired Settlement: I need them to accomdate me. What's wrong with them.

Business Response:

RE: Complaint ID **************** ********

Dear Ms. ******:

This letter is response to Ms. ********'s complaint received on May 23, 2012.

We are happy to report that the situation has been resolved. Ms. ******** was able to arrange an appointment that fit her schedule and our hours of operation. She signed her auto loan documents on May 24, 2012.

Consumer Response:

Better Business Bureau:

I have reviewed the response made by the business in reference to complaint ID *******, and have determined that this proposed action would not resolve my complaint.  For your reference, details of the offer I reviewed appear below.

This does not address the bigger issues of accomodating someone who is ill and not able to come in. Typical narrowmindedness and conformity of representatives not to want to correct the problem.

I will complain about this until it is fixed.

Business Response:

RE: Complaint ID *******

********* ********

Dear Ms. ******,

This letter is in response to Ms. ********'s second BBB complaint received on June 18, 2012.

We apologize for Ms. ********'s frustration regarding obtaining an appointment outside our normal business hours. We have reminded staff that loan documents may be signed by mail if all other necessary documentation has been received from the member.

The credit union attempted to make reasonable accommodations to Ms. ********'s situation as evidenced by 22 phone contacts with credit union representatives. We are sorry these efforts did not meet her needs.
