Today's kids haven't seen it. After the economy started going south during the Arab Oil Embargo, I saw so many banks and S&Ls go under. Heck, one of the first jobs I had after leaving college was photocopying evidence in the Charles Keating/ Lincoln S&L debacle.

Wells-Fargo seems to have a new suit against them, and, while banks have gotten millions, sometimes billions, of dollars in fines, not a single bankster has served time. Today's organized crime groups are registered with the SEC.

Well, "bankster" and "gangster" *do* sound pretty much the same, don't they? That's some first job you had, there .... 8-}

worked for a temp service. At the time, I was assigned to AT&T in Phoenix, but did OT at Xerox to photocopy evidence. When the melt down hit in '08, I had flashbacks to the 80s when so many S&Ls went under. Since then, I've been following the antics of such banks as BofA, Wells-Fargo, Citibank, and Chase. Actual fraud, some have been charged with racketeering. I played it smart, pulled all my cash out of the banks and put it in a credit union years before the meltdown. I saw a problem when banks started charging a check cashing fee on checks drawn on their bank to non-customers. Something told me they were in trouble back then.

Your sixth sense served you well :-) If I don't heed mine, I always screw up.
