RIVERSIDE, Calif. — Two credit unions that received previously owned coin counters from another CU have uncovered some bugs.

The machines came from the $985 million Altura Credit Union, headquartered in Riverside, which decided to make their older coin machines available to the smaller CUs as part of the Shapiro Group program run by California and Nevada Credit Union League when the CU decided to upgrade to newer models. The Sharpiro Group program pools the resources of the credit union community to help smaller credit unions operate efficiently and effectively.

One of the recipient CUs, Ketema Federal Credit Union in El Cajon, Calif., is a $2 million, sole-sponsor credit union serving the employees of the Ketema Aerospace Co.. The second, El Futuro is an $8 million CU headquartered in Porterville, Calif., that was founded in 1966 to serve primarily Hispanic farm workers.
