Not a bank! A greedy insurance company like all the rest.

This is an insurance company that wants to masquerade as bank to steal more money from service members.

After 17+ years with USAA, they suddenly decided that they would not insure my motorcycle anymore. I had a motorcycle insured with them before I ever even had a car.

They referred to me to Progressive, and assured me the same "exceptional customer service". Well, Progressive wanted 7x what I was paying for motorcycle insurance! Partly because I no longer had the multicar discount and I was a new customer etc etc.

I switched to State Farm and now I pay less than I was with USAA and have a $250 deductible instead of $500!

The folks at USAA are very nice. They explained that they didn't have the "experience to rate a motorcycle", so I had to switch to Progressive. ARE YOU KIDDING ME! They are an INSURANCE COMPANY that cannot write insurance polices! Yet they want Soldiers to trust them with their money, daughter's college fund, mortgage, auto loan?

USAA is no better than the competition. In fact, they are worse because they pretend to be part of the military family. Please don't follow them blindly as I did for so many years.

Don't trust this company

After being a member in good standing for over 20 years I have now lost all faith in this company. My ex-wife defaulted on a debt that we jointly opened while we were married while I was stationed overseas. Rather than contacting me about this USAA chose to lock my online and account access. After 10 phone calls where I have to wake up in the middle of the night and spend over an hr each time on the call they still are doing nothing to help me. All their services and contacts are based on you being able to login to your account, which is locked in my case.

They are a great company if you live in San Antonio. But as I have learned the hard way they no longer value military members or work to help those that are overseas. Avoid them at all costs. I am moving everything to another bank that at least will talk to me like a person and not put me on hold every time I call.

Fraud dept. a joke

I recently received a couple emails from USAA regarding an account trying to access our checking account.

1.) was at first confused, but USAA confirmed that the emails were from them: I thought it was fraud because of obvious misspellings (shows their lack of detail)

2.) Found under "manage accounts", who was trying to access my account fraudulently. I called the fraud alert number from USAA. Spoke first to James.

a.) was disappointed to find out that there is no fraud department for overall accounts, only for debit and credit cards. This fraud was trying to take money from my checking, and USAA does not have a department to combat that!

b.) Further spoke to James, who said that on his end, could not see who was accessing my account, even though I could see it. I told him exactly where to find it under "manage my accounts", but he said he didn't have access to it. Can you believe this? The fraud dept does not have access to who is accessing my account - even though I saw the guy's name and his account number from my end!

c.) Asked James to speak to his manager. 10 minutes later, spoke to Valerie, his manager, who said that she did not have access to the screen I could see the fraudulent access-or of my account. Again, I can see clearly on my end who is trying to access my account, but the manager of the fraud department cannot see it or help me. She only said that she can transfer the info to the fraud alert dept to put my account on alert. I asked her what that entails and she said that she "doesn't know. really reassuring! She then tried to transfer me to the checking dept. and I was hung up on during the transfer. Nice!
