Comparing credit unions to “David in the Goliath battle,” PSCU Financial Services President/CEO Michael Kelly is urging consumers to “take a stand.”
“As banks respond to regulations imposed upon them, many plan to recoup lost income by squeezing the consumer,” Kelly said. “Credit unions allow consumers to keep more of their own money, especially in these tough economic times. Consumers have the choice – pay the fees or move your business.”
Kelly, whose Florida-based CUSO is a major provider of card processing and other services to credit unions, suggested consumers visit www.asmarterchoice.org or www.culookup.com to learn how to join one in their community.
“Consumers shouldn’t be bullied into accepting charges for using their own money,” Kelly said. “Credit unions are the way for consumers to take a stand. They are the natural answer.”
