Do business with these crooks and you will ask for everything you will get. $13 billion is a drop in the ocean in consideration of what was scammed and scimmed.

A company that sets aside more for litigation than it earns? That is some business model.

Now the banks are filthy rich with properties, mission accomplished. While millions of people all over the world don't have s...! Now Plan B, putting all those properties in Blackstone, corporately owned on Wall Street worth billions. No one is going to jail, it is all a scam of massive proportion, while the global economy sinks to the bottom of human kind. An Oligarchy globally.

Where was it that read that a Vietnameese banker was sentenced to death for stealing twenty five million?
If I stepped on a grape leaving the supermarket and was charged for it I would feel more pain than these bankers.

JPMorgan Chase & Co. should be broken up and assets sold off. It's time to get rid off the old and bring in new companies that can be monitored and held accountable. The giants of yester-year need to go ASAP.
