Please do not use MECU for your banking needs. I should have walked out the door when I first tried opening an account and they tried to tell me I don’t live in the city of Baltimore, even though both the Maryland MVA and US Post Office say I do. They grudgingly allowed me the honor of opening an account since I also work in Baltimore. If you need quarters for one of the many local laundromats, don’t bother with MECU. According to their employees they don’t exchange money for non-customers, or will claim to not have any rolls of quarters. They also don’t exchange money for MECU customers, claiming to not have any rolls of quarters, or any quarters at all. According to MECU it is fine and acceptable for them to surreptitiously re-order your transactions on a secret transaction record in an effort to induce insufficient funds and negative balance fees against your account. When the real transaction history and your statement shows that there was no real overdraw or negative balance you will have to then repeatedly demand they reverse any fees that were fraudulently charged. MECU will insist the fees are valid, even though all the evidence says otherwise. MECU has what they claim is a secure messaging service on their website, which requires you to be logged into your MECU account to use. However the secure messaging department will refuse to communicate with you about your account over their secure messaging service. The secure messaging department will also refuse to answer why there is the service if they refuse to use it as it is intended or supposed to be used. If you are traveling outside your home state MECU will randomly decide any transaction is possible fraud and turn off your card, even if you inform them ahead of time you will be traveling. They also will make ZERO effort to contact you to verify you still have your card or if the transactions are valid. After you call in to get your card turned back on, and have another note put on file that you are traveling, you will soon find your card deactivated again. When you call in, again, MECU will then tell you that no one actually reads the account notes on file. After calling in multiple days to get your card reactivated, MECU will tell you that even though you tell them the charges that keep happening in the same area in the same businesses are valid, what MECU considers suspicious activity changes daily and completely overrides what the rules were for the previous day. Plan on having to call in and jump through security hoops with multiple departments to have your card turned back on daily if you travel anywhere outside your home state. The ATMs at their banks very often are completely non-functional, or have a major malfunction-not being able to dispense or accept any cash for instance, most often not working before and during long weekends. If you have a fraudulent or unauthorized charge on your account MECU will initially refuse to investigate or do anything about it, and then eventually will take all the necessary information to investigate and reverse the charge. Then instead of investigating and reversing the fraudulent or unauthorized charge, or anything else useful, they will just close your account, waiting until after they’ve closed it to notify you the account is closed, then ignore and refuse to acknowledge any communication attempts from you to them. If you are a fan of constant and blatant incompetence, abuse, and ineptitude from a bank or credit union MECU is the perfect place for you.
The machine here took my money while trying to make a deposit and told me that my cash cannot be accepted. After I canceled the transaction it gave me all of my money back except for $70.00. I am now stuck at work and cannot reach them via telephone.
I have been banking with mecu for a while and I am happy with the service I receive. I am however not happy with the new location.
Never enough tellers present ;lines are always long and even worse when you need to speak to an agent
Im a happy complainer so when i say this branch is awedome in every way take it as gospel
Everything is fine except no bathroom facilities for customers. That can be a problem.
This credit union on Martin Luther King Blvd is the worst one in my opinion
always on hold for at least 45 min!!!
I love Mecu
