Georgia's Own Credit Union Campanile Branch
1155 Peachtree St NE, Atlanta, GA 30309
If you are looking for an alternative to the big banks, joining a credit union is a great option. Georgia's Own Credit Union has been great to work with!
I have ben a member of this credit union for many years (since it was Georgia Telco) and I have done pretty much all of my banking here. That includes financing cars and mortgages, and maintaining checking accounts, savings accounts and equity lines. But recently, they have really gotten bad. The customer service has become non existent. It may take them days to return a phone call or email, and it seems to me like they are only working part time, because they are out of the office so much. Incompetence is obvious. I am looking for a better credit union and I would recommend that anyone not use these people.
The Georgia Credit Union have adopted some of Bank of America's illegal practices. If you are considering opening an account there, I don't recommend it.
Like Bank of America, the Credit Union of Georgia will hold transaction....move dates and transactions around in order to incur fees ($30.00) each. They tell you that your transactions are in 'real time'....don't beleive it. Like Bank of America they will do whatever it takes to get those fees. Unless you mantain a large balance they will find some way to get your money in fees. BEWARE!
