Since 2008, government investigations into the financial crisis have about all centered on civil, rather than criminal charges, unfortunately. Here are some brief summaries of 10 of these cases. These are concise, short summaries FYI.

I don't bank. I use money cards, and have my check direct deposted to them. Yes I know that is still through a bank, but there's no services charges or any other bs they can attach to your account in a regular. But I do work part time and that employer pays me by check. He banks through Wells Fargo and one branch that I used to go to, to cash my check, would literally harrass about did I have an account, did I want an account, where did I bank. I told them repeatedly I was not interested in an account and where I banked was not their business. So they would make me wait in the lobby so a bank manager could approve and cash my paycheck on an account my employer held with them. One day I got so mad and called them on the corporate bullshit, my exact words. I got kicked out of the bank. I do to a different branch and receive NONE of the treatment this branch extended. They cash my check out a word.

Thanks, Judy...good info! I switched from Chase to a local credit union last year during the height of Occupy. It's a bit of a process if you have Direct Deposit, but my conscience feels so much better!

Banks shouldn't be sued, people from those banks should be sued. IF you sue or prosecute a person, they will go to jail or have to pay from their own pocket. If you sue a corporation, the individuals that are guilty will doge the blame and the banks will just pass the costs of litigation to their customers.

Banks can be fined, but employees can go to prison if the law so provides.
