Craigs List ad targeting CUs is pulled
HARRISBURG, Pa. (1/7/10)--Craig's List has pulled an advertisement that sought to recruit current credit union members to solicit others to join the credit union through them. According to the Pennsylvania Credit Union Association (PCUA), the advertiser offered $75 to current members who answered the ad and allowed ineligible people to join credit unions through a current member (Life is a Highway Jan. 6). The ad listed specific credit unions across the country. However, the wording indicated the ad would take anyone, said PCUA. The ad appeared to be from California. PCUA alerted the California Credit Union League, which investigated the posting. When News Now went to check the link, Craig's List had posted a notice that it had pulled the ad.
