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

Here is the unofficial problem bank list for April 20, 2012. (table is sortable by assets, state, etc.)

Changes and comments from surferdude808:

As expected, the OCC released its enforcement action activity through mid-March this week, which contributed to many changes to the Unofficial Problem Bank List. In all, there were 12 removals and seven additions that result in the list having 939 institutions with assets of $365.6 billion. A year ago, the list held 976 institutions with assets of $422.2 billion.

The removals, which are centered in Texas, Michigan, and Minnesota, include 10 action terminations, one failure, and one unassisted merger. Action terminations include Citizens Bank, Flint MI ($9.2 billion Ticker: CRBC); Sterling Bank and Trust, FSB, Southfield, MI ($762 million); The Central National Bank of Alva, Alva, OK ($276 million); First National Bank of Jasper, Jasper, TX ($222 million); First National Bank Minnesota, St. Peter, MN ($190 million); Northwestern Bank, National Association, Dilworth, MN ($138 million); Texas Heritage National Bank, Daingerfield, TX ($109 million); Peoples National Bank Leadville, Leadville, CO ($50 million); Uvalde National Bank, Uvalde, TX ($30 million); and Flint River National Bank, Camilla, GA ($27 million). The failure removal was Fort Lee Federal Savings Bank, FSB, Fort Lee, NJ ($52 million) and the other removal was American Bank of Texas, National Association, Marble Falls, TX ($775 million), which merged on unassisted basis.

The seven additions were Tulsa National Bank, Tulsa, OK ($175 million); Choice Bank, Oshkosh, WI ($175 million Ticker: CBKW); The First National Bank of Absecon, Absecon, NJ ($160 million Ticker: ASCN); Flatbush Federal Savings and Loan Association, Brooklyn, NY ($143 million Ticker: FLTB); Atlas Bank, Brooklyn, NY ($108 million); Mojave Desert Bank, National Association, Mojave, CA ($105 million Ticker: MOJA); and Auburn Savings Bank, FSB, Auburn, ME ($78 million Ticker: ABBB).

Other changes include Prompt Corrective Action orders issued against Citizens First National Bank, Princeton, IL ($1.0 billion Ticker: PNBC) and Security Bank, National Association, North Lauderdale, FL ($95 million). Next week, we anticipate the FDIC will release its enforcement action activity through March 2012.
