Gain financial know-how
at students' credit onion
By JAMES COBLIN
The Carolina Students' Credit
Union is recruiting students to work
with marketing, personnel, treasury,
credit and accounting, according to
Christie Snowdon, CSCU personnel
The credit union is looking for
people to replace the participants lost
to turnover each year, said Brad
Beebe, general manager of
Anyone is welcome to volunteer,
but CSCU offers special opportun
ities to business, economics and
accounting majors, Beebe said.
CSCU employees work on a volun
teer basis, but the experience they
gain will pay off when they look for
jobs after graduation, Snowdon said.
Because CSCU is a real business
working for real profit, experience
gained there can be used later in life,
she said. "We are making an invest
ment in ourselves."
CSCU officers hope large numbers
of freshmen and sophomores will sign
up because they will have a longer
period of time to learn about and
work for the CSCU, shift manager
Jennifer Bouts said.
An information session and recep
tion for all students interested in
working for the CSCU will be held
Monday, Jan. 30, from 7 p.m. to 9
p.m. in the Union Auditorium
All committee chairmen will be
present at the meeting, including the
offices of marketing, personnel,
credit, investment, operations arid
treasury, Bouts said.
Applications will be available at the
meeting and interested students will
be interviewed on the following
Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday
to match students' interests and
abilities to different areas of the credit
union, Bouts said.
This semester is the first time this
kind of recruiting drive has been held,
but it will probably become a regular
event, Beebe said.
State lawsuit filed against firm?
offering 'credit repair' service!;
By SUSAN HOLDSCLAW
A bad credit rating is not able to
be changed through "credit repair,"
despite claims by firms like Interna
tional Business Services (IBS) that
damaging information can be
removed from credit bureau files.
N.C. Attorney General Lacy
Thornburg has filed a suit against IBS
charging the firm with promising
clients that it could have information
such as bankruptcies and reposses
sions removed from credit reports.
According to sworn statements filed
with the attorney general's office, IBS
charged fees ranging from $150 to
$499 for the service.
The lawsuit and statements con
tend that IBS made false represen
tations and failed to do anything to
improve credit ratings. In some
instances, IBS failed to obtain a copy
of the consumer's credit report. The
state also alleges IBS would prepare

Two development projects, a retail
complex and a hotel, have been
planned for Chapel Hill in the area
along N.C. 54 between University Inn
and the Glenwood Square shopping
Redesigned plans for University
Village, which will include a bank and
a retail and office space, received
unanimous approval from the Chapel
Hill Planning Board last week.
Plans for a 98-room hotel to be
located behind Glenwood Square
were also submitted to the planning
board last week, Chapel Hill planner
Kendal Brown said.
Original plans for the University
Village complex included eight movie
theaters. But a planning staff report
expressed concern with internal
traffic control and insufficient park
ing space for the complex.
Roger Perry, a senior partner at
East-West Partners, the developers of
the project, said the new plans do not
include the eight theaters, which

solves the problems that caused
opposition from planning board
members and area residents.
"It seemed very obvious we were
going to run into great opposition
with the existing neighborhood with
the theaters and we were going to lose,
probably with good reason," Perry
said. "The site was not large enough."
The total project will occupy nearly
32,000 square feet, as opposed to the
original plans, which would have
occupied 57,000 square feet, Perry
According to a memo from Chapel
Hill planning director Roger Waldon,
the new plans include a 28,716-square-foot
building for retail and
office use and a 3,600-square-foot
building to be used for a bank.
Perry said the new plans for the

retail complex are smaller than the
Harris Teeter at Glenwood Square.
But the new plans still meet the
necessary criteria to benefit the
neighborhood, he said.
A public hearing is scheduled for
the first week in February, followed
by a Chapel Hill Town Council
meeting during the first week in
March, when developers hope to
receive approval for the project, Perry
said. No bids have been accepted for
the project yet, he said.
Michael Thomas, president of
Thomas Associates in Greenville,
S.C., the architects for the hotel
project, said the cost for the hotel will
be nearly $3.5 million.
No drafts have been drawn for the
hotel, but Thomas said the hotel will,
be very complementary to Glenwood

Also named in the state consumer
protection lawsuit were Bob Jones
and Mark Flowers, the principal

New Bern locations of IBS.
Thornburg was granted a prelimi
nary injunction against IBS to pre
vent the company from continuing to
solicit business under the premise that
it could repair a consumer's credit
record, said Philip Lehman, associate
attorney general for consumer pro
tection. IBS also cannot receive
payment for any existing contracts
and must provide an accounting of
its assets and money collected in
recent months, he said in a telephone
Lehman said Thornburg's objec
tive in filing the suit was to "stop their
deceptive representation that IBS
could repair credit and could remove
accurate information in consumers'
Depending on the seriousness of
the violations, civil penalties could
also result, Lehman said.
The federal Fair Credit Reporting
Act gives consumers the right to
review their own files and to challenge
any information that may be inac
curate or obsolete. But because IBS
advertised it could change this infor
mation, its promises were misleading.
The next step will be restitution to
the customers, Lehman said. Because
it does not appear that IBS has many
assets, collection for damages may be
difficult, he said.
Lehman said Jones had not made
a court appearance, so a default
judgment could be handed down
against him. But Flowers had been
cooperative in negotiations with the
attorney general's office, he said.
Credit fraud is a relatively hew
practice in the state, Lehman said.
The attorney general's office has
received few complaints until this
year, and the IBS case is the first of
its kind filed recently in North
Carolina, he said. ;
Most are small-time businesses
people running the credit service from
their own homes with only classified
ads in local newspapers to solicit
customers, but IBS advertised on' a
much larger scale.
Better Business Bureau officials
found the IBS advertisement hvft
publication last October and sentJh
to the attorney general, said Josepli
Bowling, a spokesman for the bureau.
The ad offered credit services to
people who had been turned down
at other places, or for a fee, the
said IBS would direct them to places
that would give them credit, he said;
The success of IBS can be credite'd
to the fact that no Better Business
Bureau existed in its principal areas
of operation, Bowling said. "It serves
to point out that you need to ask
questions when you enter into'a
contract with a firm for something
too good to be true," he said -'"':t!
Similar operations have been in
existence throughout the country for
the past five or six years, Bowling
said, but North Carolina is just
beginning to see them. Anyone with
suspicions about credit services
should contact the local Better
Officials at IBS could not be
reached for comment.
