Their timing and your timimg may be off. Verification many ask for all the time. Not a reason to say "stay away". If your not pleased. Transfer. I'm sure they will survive without you. Good Luck!
I did the same a couple of years ago with a local credit union. I kept trying to get documents through, and finally called their complaint line andm was told they would look into it and call me back. They never called back, and I closed everything I had, moved my truck financing to Cap 1 Auto (they had the best apr) and paid off a personal loan I had and never looked back at them
I would have done the same thing after the taxes request. That would have been enough for me. We all have the right to "vote" with our dollars and how and where we spend it. I'm glad you were able to get out of there.
If enough people felt this way and did the same thing, eventually this credit union may not survive. As we seen in recent news headlines, banks and credit unions do not always have the upper hand. To survive, they most definitely need us.
Sounds like Alliant FCU everything is a big project for everything. A friend applied with them and it was a big ordeal for everything i thought it was his low credit score, when I applied same thing we are approving your credit card, then no then yes, pay stubs, taxes then two weeks later I was like i'm done approved for 1k. I tried to get it higher last week and they said no I have used the card for three years. I closed everything with them.
I think it's great income is being verified. Too many people lie about their income on applications.
