I've just gone through a huge ordeal with Chase where they accused me of fraud for writing a check to myself to move cash between accounts, and it has pissed me off.  I don't trust them anymore- I had most of my liquid cash hanging in limbo and nobody knew what they were doing in the local branch offices or their call center.

So...

I want to look at working with a smaller bank/credit union where customer service still exists.  There are a few branch offices for MidFlorida Credit Union in my area, and they seem to have the type of checking account I need.  Does anyone here have experience banking with them?

Any good experiences with other small regional banks or credit unions?

I need a basic checking account, although I want the option of opening a business account in the future for some side hustles that I might try to grow.

Not that you need more ammo: but Chase is about the furthest thing you can get from being conservative friendly. They openly discriminate against us

I think you are on the right track going with the credit union. I can't comment on that particular one but I joined Fairwinds and really like it.

I did not know writing yourself a check out of your acct to deposit in another acct you have was fraud. Am I missing something here because I've done that several times. Don't get it. You can do what ever the hell you want with your money. How did they consider that fraud.

But I've heard and read bad things about Chase
