In certain Intertubz circles, the nation's bankers are called "banksters", a play on the word "gangsters". This is because many people see them as one of the prime instrumentalities in our current economic faux paus, and believe they caused this on purpose just to steal all of our money. While I hold them partially responsible, based on my reading, I hardly hold them to that level of culpability--there's a lot of blame in this situation to go around.
However, foreclosing on a house that was paid for in cash in 2005, after your own contract employee has told you that it's the wrong house, is a really good way to keep the term going.
Bank of America, just how stupid are you?
