    From an AP news release today:

    "Japanese regulators ordered Citibank on Friday to suspend all sales operations in its retail banking division for a month starting July 15 because the lender had failed �to make notification of suspicious transactions, including money laundering.�

    Why is this bank still around I mean, seriously, am I the only person on planet earth who thinks this legalized club for financial thugs should be shut down?

    Here's the link to the full article:

      That is disgusting! Think we could do without banks like that.

        No doubt! I think Citi, BOA, and AIG (not a bank, I know) should be broken  up and the unsuccessful parts allowed (encouraged!) to fail.

        I don't understand why we are letting them get away with this.

        Well, I understand it, but like you said, it disgusts me.

    hmm, why would you say they are thug? Citi is a well known and respected company as far as I know. They do have great leadership as well.

    In term of AML (anti money laundering) they do educate their employees well on that. So i dont seem to see any reason why they should be broken down.

    Do you have bad experience with Citi?
