It really is. And the fact that they aren't being honest about it makes it even worse. Just come out and say it, "opps we made a mistake, sorry. We have to close your account but we will remove the trade line and inquiry no fuss no fowl." I've never had a credit card with a credit union but I have had several loans with Pentagon FCU and have been happy with the way they were/are handled. I also like the lower rates. My first experience with a credit union was awful though and it did leave a bad taste in my mouth. I prefer big banks for checking, credit cards and mortgage but I will continue to use the credit unions for auto/personal loans and money market savings.
