SAN DIMAS, Calif. — Despite having normal seasonal outflows of $1 billion, WesCorp members moved a record $3.3 billion into certificates during August.

This topped its previous record month of $2.6 billion earlier this year.

"Most members moved money out of their overnight accounts into short-term certificates ranging in maturities from a few weeks to 6 months.
