Members of the Atlanta Postal Credit Union say their money is being held hostage
ATLANTA — Several members of a local credit union say their money is being held hostage. Some say they haven’t had access to their direct deposits for two weeks.
Members of the Atlanta Postal Credit Union told Channel 2′s Tyisha Fernandes that they can’t make withdrawals and their automatic car payments are not going through.
The credit union sent Fernandes a statement late Thursday night, saying:
“We are pleased to share that Atlanta Postal Credit Union and Center Parc Credit Union have made significant progress in addressing the technical issues experienced by our members.
“Both online banking and all our branches are operating as normal. Please note that any funds in our members’ accounts were not impacted and continue to remain available and secure. While we are in the process of sharing more information with our members and employees, we will continue to provide notable updates regarding our investigation into the scope and nature of the incident.
“We appreciate our members’ patience and understanding as we have worked on these issues. Our priority remains the same: providing high-quality service to our members and addressing their needs.”
