“Always greeted with a smile at the Presque Isle branch by the warm, welcoming staff. Excellent customer service, CFCU!”
My debit card went through the wash recently. I should have replaced it at is was quite damaged but thought it would work a bit longer. A few days later it became stuck in an ATM.
