CUs on the Tube CU Man rescues potential bank victim
MANCHESTER, Conn. (6/15/10)--Super hero "Credit Union Man," the masked and caped alter ego of a staffer at Northeast Family FCU in Manchester, Conn., is now a video star on YouTube. His mission: "I'm here to save you from the high costs of banking." In the video, Credit Union man meets a woman at the door of Multi-High Fee Bank. She has accumulated "a ton of fees, preventing me from using my debit card." Credit Union Man--also known as Fred Brown, director of marketing and member development at the $63.5 million asset credit union--convinces her that the credit union is better, with lower fees, member ownership, and no profits shared with a "rich old boys' club of shareholders." In the next scene, she's happily signing her membership papers to the tune of "This Can't Be Love." Brown told staffers at the Credit Union National Association that he's entered the video in a contest. To watch it, use the link.
