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

Here is the unofficial problem bank list for Jan 2, 2015.

Changes and comments from surferdude808:

This past Monday, the FDIC released an update on its enforcement action activities through November 2014. The release contributed to several changes to the Unofficial Problem Bank List this week. After three removals and two additions, the list holds 400 institutions with assets of $124.8 billion. A year ago, the list held 618 institutions with assets of $205.6 billion.

The FDIC terminated actions against Legacy Bank of Florida, Boca Raton, FL ($275 million); First Home Bank, Seminole, FL ($76 million); and Bank of Wrightsville, Wrightsville, GA ($52 million).

The FDIC issued actions against The Elkhart State Bank, Elkhart, TX ($53 million) and State Bank of Burnettsville, Burnettsville, IN ($49 million).

Next week likely will be slow in terms of changes to the list.
CR Note: The first unofficial problem bank list was published in August 2009 with 389 institutions. The list peaked at 1,002 institutions on June 10, 2011, and is now down to 400.
