For some odd reason, MoveCU.com seems obtuse about sharing risk. Yet, its focus is credit unions. Yes, I am bullish about the concept of credit unions.
As a financial writer, I replied to a help wanted placed by MoveCU.com. The reply came quickly from Christina Miller, Manager of Media and Public Relations (805-965-2100, email@example.com).
She said the next step in the process required my researching and writing a 600-word article on some aspect of credit union legislation. There was no payment per se. There was the possibility of payment if the article passed muster with MoveCU.com. How much payment was not said. Also, if the article was approved, then I would be eligible to write other articles. The payment for those was not given.
Of course, I judged this screening process the way Alice in Wonderland regarded the universe after she had tumbled down the rabbit hole: peculiar. No, I did not take the next step.
Is this kind of behavior by MoveCU huring the concept of the credit union?
