GTE Financial in Tampa, Florida - Nickeled and Dimed to death
Had an account with GTE, for a car loan. Also, had savings and a free checking. GTE switched over the free checking, to charge $4.95, unbeknownst to me. So, since this was not my primary bank, I kept no money in the checking, so they overdraft the fee, then charged me $8 to do so. When I inquired about it, they informed they switched my account type, so they could add credit monitoring, cell phone protect, etc. (not that I signed up for that) When asked to close the account and send me the rest(loan paid off now), they told me it would $6 for them to cut me a check. RIDICULOUS. If you want to be nickeled and dimed to death, GTE is the Credit Union for you!
Since GTE Financial is going to be PETTY and delete my comments on their FB profile, I figured it would be best to share where more people will see. My husband and I have been loyal customers for over 10 years. I've posted several positive reviews on their page and...Read more

GTE Financial - Absolutely terrible
This bank is a joke!!! I had an auto draft come out of my account and went to an atm before the bank even opened and still got hit with an overdraft. You can’t talk to anyone but subs as customer service and they don’t want to listen just argue with you. They have the worse customer service and charge you more fees than any bank I have ever seen. I get charged a monthly fee even though I have deposits and auto drafts coming from there. They are terrible don’t stop in

GTE Financial - No loanger a real co-op
Used to be GTE was great because it was a real credit union. Now it acts more like your usual rip-off-custmers-with-hidden-fees bank. Such a shame!
Do you have something to say about GTE Financial? What happened? What can we help you with?
