Another K-State Federal Credit Union FAIL.

Today, I had another FAIL with K-State Federal Credit Union.

I went to deposit a check from my parents, something I've done often with my other bank without any problems.

The teller stares at the check for a while, and then asks me my account information and then wants me to endorse the check.

But, then says it can't be deposited. Goes off and comes back saying it'll take up to a month before it can be deposited. And, wants to know if I still want to deposit it.

Well, she made me endorse it already.

And, then there's no sign that I did the I have to take it on faith that when the check clears, it'll be deposited into my savings account? And, that I'm not going to get any notice one way or the other?

If they weren't going to accept the check, they shouldn't have made me endorse it first. I would then have had no problem with going to a different bank to deposit the check.

Remind me what were the advantages of being in a credit union, instead of a real bank?
