Credit unions offer valuable services to their members. The ability to bank with a company affiliated with one's employer can offer flexibility and inspire confidence that a large bank may not be able to duplicate. Credit unions in Kentucky and around the country have enjoyed popularity for this reason, but they are not immune from being charged with fraud.
A company involved in helping schools acquire and maintain technology is under fire for possibly having misappropriated funds. Two employees of the company have been charged with wire fraud. The two work for a Kentucky business that helps schools and libraries to obtain the funds needed to purchase internet access and other telecommunication services.
