What is credit unioning?

Any financial institutions that continues to use these terms can face criminal charges. “The restriction applies to all non-bank financial service providers, including both federal regulated trust and loan companies and provincially regulated institutions (i.e. credit unions). So processing checks, granting loans, and managing individuals’ wealth is not considered banking in Canada.In the U.S., holding deposits and issuing debit cards is also not considered “banking”. PayPal’s assets, which is the aggregate of all balances held in PayPal’s users’ accounts, $33 billion as of January 2016, would make it the third largest credit union in the U.S., if it were regulated as a credit union, which of course it’s not. PayPal operates only under state-by-state money transmitter licenses. To be fair, PayPal is subject to Regulation E consumer protections. But none of the other quarterly reporting, compliance and restrictions that apply to banks and to credit unions apply to PayPal, so holding people’s money must not be banking. continue reading »last_img read more
