Time For A Bankers Pledge To The American People?.......

Do credit unions cause
b@*ks to be dishonest?


"A couple of years ago Roger McCormick, a law professor at London School of Economics and Political Science, assembled a team of researchers to track the 10 largest western banks, to see how finance was evolving after the 2008 crisis."

"He thought this might be a minor, one-off project. He was wrong.  Last month the project team published its second report on post-crisis penalties, which showed that by late 2013 the top 10 banks had paid an astonishing $160 billion in fines since 2008, for misbehavior such as money laundering, rate-rigging, sanctions-busting and mis-selling subprime mortgages and bonds during the credit bubble."

"When the 2014 data are compiled, the total
Psst! Hey, I'm
endorsed by the ABA.
penalties will probably have risen towards $300 billion.  Just last week BOA announced yet another settlement with regulators over the subprime scandals, worth $16.9 billion. JPMorgan and Citi respectively have recently settled with different US government bodies for mortgage transgressions to the tune of $13 billion and $7 billion."
- Gillian Tett  

There, of course, can be only one cause for this persistent dishonesty by America's b@*ks...

Fresh, all-natural, organic,

From The Field: A Difficult Decision...

"Johnsie, a long-time member, came in yesterday to make a large withdrawal to get her car back.  Evidently her husband had been stopped over the weekend and was arrested for driving while impaired.
He's in the coop!
(that is not short for cooperative!)

She said she might be back in again to get the money to retrieve her husband , but she hadn't decided yet. 

The way she was talking he better start getting comfortable on that bunk."
reckon so!

There is nothing wrong with an examiner, that trying to reason with him won't aggravate!
