Would you use a company where the CEO uses a fake name? Well let me introduce you to the CEO of BECU J. Benson Porter. This guy is masking his real name and why would a creditable organization allow this? I’m not sure why but maybe their company has a lot of complaints and uses his fake name to camouflage his identity. We were notified by a user who visited our website that this was happening and this person also mentioned that we should “Watch our back” because this company is bad news. The name J. Benson Porter doesn’t show up at WSBA or the Washington State Voters Database.
It turns out J. Benson Porter’s real name is John Benson Porter. This information isn’t really a secret. It was found publicly on the Internet. So why does BECU just use his real name instead of trying to hide it? His first name isn’t Benson – it is John. The use of a manipulated name (or fake) is just tricking your customers and not honest. As you know, this website is all about that. I’ve had a horrible experience with them and people should be aware about this company. Their banking practices are not honorable in my opinion (from my personal experience). There are many complaints about BECU and that is not surprising including a class-action lawsuit when their name was The Boeing Credit Union. They later changed it to just BECU.org.
John Benson Porter a Democrat. In December 2015, he donated $1000 to Denny Heck For Congress.
Denny Heck voted to impeach President Trump for high crimes and misdemeanors. Denny Heck is involved with several financial committees in congress. He is also involved with financial oversight, investigations, and consumer debt. It makes sense that the BECU CEO would be paying this guy some cash since BECU is in the banking business. They are trying to make sure their business is running smoothly and that may require you to pay your congressman so he pushes agendas in your companies favor. John Benson Porter wasn’t the only cash supporter. One of Denny Hick’s biggest contributions came from the Credit Union National Association.
CEO John Benson Porter is also a lobbyist in the finance industry, according to the Washington State Public Disclosure Committee.
So there you have it folks – the truth. J. Benson Porter isn’t his real name and they lie about it on the BECU.org website and public documents. His real name is John Benson Porter so take note and hopefully the company will start using his real name instead of the lies being published.
With a fake name, do you think he is honest about the way BECU operates and conducts business? In my experience, it has been a rip-off. On his LinkedIn, he says went to college at Seattle University and Whitman College. It also says he worked as a Chairman at the Federal Home Loan Bank of Des Moines. He was also the President and CEO of First Tech Federal Credit Union. I don’t know if that is true maybe he is lying about those college and work experiences as well. A person who uses a fake name is someone who is hiding something in my opinion.
The credit union BECU.org has a shady history with a class action lawsuit when their name was the Boeing Employee Credit Union. After the lawsuit, they changed their name to just BECU. I can’t say it is related but it would make sense to change it after the brand damage due to the lawsuit. Pierce County Court Records show John Benson Porter in many lawsuits include BECU.org.
