    Navy Federal Credit Union [NFCU]opening a buisness account

    Today 02/04/2021 I went in to a local branch 7979 Hampton Boulevard, Norfolk, VA 23505 to open a small business account. I already have a few small business accounts. I was turned away at the door, I was told that takes to long and people can not be in the building longer than 10 minutes. Ever time I have created a new account I have gotten the help of an employee because each time they have required something new or different. I have tried using online services and I am not great with computers, I can do basics. Even before Covid services have been going down but to turn away a customer with existing accounts is unbelievable.

      Navy Federal Credit Union [NFCU]Checking account

      They approved a deposit with a 2 day hold. After 3 days they marked my account thousands in the negative. Then told me my account will be negative for another week and a half. I don't have any way to purchase food or fuel / day to day living. Completely unacceptable. I will be closing all accounts and mentally burning the business down. Never bank with navy federal.

Both of those were also down. Disrespectful and a little deceitful to say things on your pages that aren't true and are just something to redirect someone.

          I applied for a personal loan from Navy Federal and it was denied again, reason for denial "caused loss to Navy Federal". I have been with Navy Federal for over 20 years at some point in time I went through a financial hardship and filed for Bankruptcy several years ago. I presently have a Direct Deposit check that comes in every month, I presently have a Checking and a Saving acct with them. How long will I be penalized for this... I'm aware that the Bankruptcy could have an impact, but I've purchased a home opened up various accounts purchased a few cars since the Bankruptcy. Like I stated I have been with Navy Federal for over 20 years!!! Will I never be able to get a personal Loan from Navy Federal, If so I will have to find another institution to conduct my Banking business with. My letter of denial was received on 9/18/202. I've also requested an appeal lowering the amount that I originally requested. Trying to Consolidate some bills. Thanks!!

            Navy Federal Credit Union [NFCU]Manager is an incompetent and unprofessional little girl

            I am almost 70 years old and I have never seen a sorrier bank branch. I just opened a checking and savings account at the Navy Federal branch in Albuquerque and within a week they sent me checks (with the wrong number on the checks). Then when I went in to ask them about the checks and a fraudulent withdrawal on my debit card they told me that they didn't know who the debit was paid to. In frustration, I asked to close the account and withdraw all of my money. The young girl who said she was the branch manager, Christy Piper, called me a fool (in front of witnesses) and refused to do anything. And the ATM there was out of service. She's not much of a manager. There are plenty of other banks around. Avoid this one. This girl is a loser.

              Navy Federal Credit Union [NFCU]Unauthorized debit card charges

              I would like to file a complaint with NFCU, as I recently had two fraudulent charges on my debit card.
              I was told an investigation is pending.
              And in the meantime that they need to let the charges post -- more than $1100!
              And that after that they would TRY to get the $$ back.
              I need the money back. Not a promise to TRY their best.
              What is wrong with these people?!?

                I am not sure what has happened to quality banking at Navy Federal. Every day got progressively worse. Its to the point where its representatives and the organizational hierarchy doesn't even care. I have zero confidence in this bank at this time and have taken my service elsewhere. Countless issues and the integrity is nonexistent to me. Navy Federal needs to get it back together.

                Improper account credit and debits, all sorts of mistakes, you name it etc.

                  Navy Federal Credit Union [NFCU]Mortgage loan 2 month process smh

                  I applied for a mortgage loan August 9th 2019 it is now Oct the 1st 2019 and I still don't have a close date. Really, what's really going with this company. NFCU The lack of urgency is very present. Loan Processor and Loan Officers don't communicate and you have to go thru other channels to hear from your assigned loan processor because they won't respond to your emails or call you back. The process takes way to long. Navy federal doesn't care if you lose thousands of dollars and expect you to just live with it like it's okay. NOT ACCEPTABLE !!! Something truly needs to be done about the unprofessional behavior. I want to speak with upper management about their Mortgage Dept. about who's going to pay for the money that I will lose if NFCU doesn't close on my loan NOW. The craziest thing about all of this is that I was Approved for everything, EVERYTHING!!! but I can't get the Underwriters to move forward with my loan in a timely manner, someone needs to fire the underwriter manager because nothing is getting done or hire more help

                      My husband and I are having the same issue. We started our refinance in Oct 2019. The loan processor waited so long to do anything that they had to run our credit again. They just called this month Feb 2020 to verify my employment. As of now we still do not have a close date. We tried to go through upper management and we never received a call back. We have been with NFCU for at least 15 years. Expected much better from them. Very disappointed.

                      Worst customer service in over 39 years... We must all have the same loan processors as I got zero customer service. I was told in November it would be 10-15 days to get the appraisal... now 4 days before closing they are telling me its not going to happen until next year.

                      Numerous emails sent asking for a time to call and talk to them... or asking if we would close on time and nothing until 4 days before closing...

                      I sent an email to the loan processor’s supervisor... I got nothing but crickets... I called to get her supervisors’s work number or work email and was told they couldn’t give it out... as it was private... no worries... i found the CFO and CEO’s email address on line...

                      I am in the exact same boat, my loan started Aug 11, I have extended the close date two times, the sellers won't grant another one, I can't get ahold of anyone and will lose the contract and earnest money tomorrow. I am randomly looking for executives in Linked in that night have some connection to mortgages. This is terrible.

                      Were you able to get a hold of any upper management? I am in same boat as you. Close date is next Wednesday with zero information from processor. Still in underwriting. Could care less if lose earnest deposit or house. So frustrated.

                    Navy Federal Credit Union [NFCU]My credit line

                    On or about 2016, my ex-wife use my name to order a MasterCard without my knowledge where she withdrew all the credit and failed to make payments. I found out while I was living in South Karolina and filed a complaint with the local police department. I also file a complaint with the navy federal and was told an investigation was pending. Later, found out the issue wasn't resolved where I became the debtor of the money that was withdrawn. I need the navy federal to fix my status and prosecute this person (evelyn k. gaitan) for identity theft and credit card fraud.

                    thank you.

                      I cannot believe the way you have treated my widowed mother and the family as we try to do business with you in regards to her finances. I have been given full privileges on her behalf after a long and protracted runaround by all of your departments. For me to list everything that you have done to complicate our lives and cause such stress would required me several hours to document. My Mom just tried to order checks and again you have thrown up roadblocks. My parents are/were 88 and have been lifelong members while I was a 30 year member. If you treat longtime clients like this I can't imagine what you do to your new customers. I can't help but feel that there would be someone there who would be appalled at what has occurred. When I asked for a name to address our concerns, I was told that none could be provided. If my Mom didn't have so many accounts tied up with you I would close them all. You can contact and apologize to my mother, Marilyn L. Evans at [protected].
