Additional Notes

Complaint: I have been a member of the Credit Union for 30 years. I currently have my car loan with the credit union. I made my car payment twice due to the fact I did not know using my mobile device I could not see all the pending transaction from *******. I called and talked to ***** about the problem on 2/20/2015 @ 0905. This is what I got from the conversation: 1. He has never done such a thing.2. Both payments are already out of my ******* account so that the end of it. When I informed him that the money was not out of my account for either check he said that was news to him. 3. He is way to busy to try to find the second payment if all the customers ask him to do that he would never get his work done.On Monday Morning 2/23/2015 I arrived at the credit untion @0930 to talk to someone. This time I got **** ***** who was filling in for a manager. He agreed with ***** and said maybe they could put one of my payments in my saving account if they thought of it and I could drive back down there on another day to withdraw it from my account. Both checks were put through my account and added to my loan on 2/23/2015. I called on 2/25/2015 and finally met a lady called ******, a teller that said no they had not put it into my account both both payments had been placed on my loan. She offered to credit one of the payments back to my saving account and put a check into the mail for me today. Why was this not offered to me on my two previous encounters. I'll tell you why. First Missouri has apparently gotten why to busy to care about their customers and I'd like to know exactly where the managers are on Monday morning.

Desired Settlement: 35.00 for the overdraft I recieved due to my ******* account being overdrawn due to their lack of customers service!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Business Response: Initial Business Response /* (1000, 11, 2015/03/31) */ I was able to speak with Ms. ****** regarding this experience and I conveyed to her that someone telling her they don't have the time to respond to her issue is completely unacceptable and not in any way congruent with the mission of the credit union. As a credit union we are a member owned organization and our only purpose for existence is to serve the membership. Without paid board members or shareholders there is no other mission to serve. I did however try to explain that at the time she was asking **** and ***** to look out for a check that may or may not arrive is not something we can guarantee, and that even as small as we are an alert to watch out for a check that may be coming is a difficult task. I believe the staff offered her suggestions as to how certain actions may help her and she characterized those suggestions as lack of involvement which I don't think is entirely representative of how we reacted. Finally I assured Ms. ****** that if she needed to speak with a manager one would be made available for her. It seems the moment she walked in one was not readily available and **** merely tried to help. He did not represent himself as a manager. There was a manager in the building that morning but I cannot say for certain what her availability was and again, being a small member owned organization it is not out of the question that at any given moment there is only one manager present, we do not have many managers as Ms. ****** suggested. I do appreciate Ms. ******'s feedback, it is a wonderful opportunity for us to look at how we handle things here. When I spoke with her I did my best to show her that we are not a giant bank as she suggested n her complaint and I will keep trying to let as many people as I can every day find out that there is a difference between us and the big bank. Thank you for the opportunity to be of assistance and please feel free to contact me ***** ******** Vice President of Operations First Missouri Credit Union

Additional Notes

Complaint: Location: **** First ** *** St. Louis, MO XXXXX Yesterday I got a letter from them about my car insurance. They are telling me that I needed a $500.00 deductible instead of $1,000.00. When I signed the loan with them the lady said my insurance coverage was fine. Then I get a letter about it and called and the person was rude. I wasn't told I had to add additional insurance. They did it for me without my permission. Then I got a letter saying they pulled out my insurance. I told them that I was transferring my loan. They were rude to me and telling me I didn't understand the policy. I was told "are you going to start acting like an adult now". I was hung up on. They added something on to my loan without my permission.

Desired Settlement: I want this insurance to be removed from my loan.

Business Response: Business' Initial Response /* (1000, 5, 2013/06/14) */ Consumer signed an insurance statement at time of loan closing acknowledging that a maximum $500 deductible was required. Consumer did not correct (lower) the deductible in response to letter(s) warning of the pending placement of collateral protection insurance premium onto the loan balance in accordance with the terms and conditions of her loan documents. A pro-rata refund will be made when the deductible is corrected or the loan is paid in full.
