This is an unofficial list of Problem Banks compiled only from public sources.

Here is the unofficial problem bank list for April 23, 2010.

Changes and comments from surferdude808:

Bank closings dictated many changes to the Unofficial Problem Bank List this week. The failures in Illinois -- Amcore Bank, National Association ($3.8 billion), Broadway Bank ($1.2 billion), New
Century Bank ($510 million), Wheatland Bank ($437 million), Lincoln Park Savings Bank ($205 million), Peotone Bank and Trust Company ($136 million), and Citizens Bank and Trust Company of Chicago ($77 million) -- removed seven banks and $6.3 billion of assets.

Another removal this week was Paragon Bank & Trust ($107 million), a subsidiary of Capitol Bancorp (Ticker: CBC), which merged with its affiliate Michigan Commerce Bank that is also subject to a formal action. There were four additions this week including Sun National Bank, Vineland, NJ ($3.6 billion Ticker: SNBC); Great Florida Bank, Coral Gables, FL ($1.8 billion Ticker: GFLB); Central Virginia Bank, Powhatan, VA ($472 million Ticker: CVBK); and The Bank of Currituck, Moyock, NC ($197 million).

The net of these changes result in the Unofficial Problem Bank List having 694 institutions with aggregate assets of $366.1 billion. Other changes include the termination of the Prompt Corrective Action against Heritage Bank, Topeka, KS, and a name change for AmericasBank to CFG Community Bank. Next week, we look for the FDIC to release its new actions for March 2010.
