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

Here is the unofficial problem bank list for Aug 8, 2014.

Changes and comments from surferdude808:

Two removals lowered the number of institutions on the Unofficial Problem Bank List to 449. Assets declined by $3.0 billion to $142.7 billion. A year earlier, the list held 723 institutions with assets of $255 billion. Enforcement actions were terminated against MetaBank, Storm Lake, IA ($1.9 billion Ticker: CASH) and First American Bank, Fort Dodge, IA ($1.1 billion). Next Friday, we anticipate the OCC to provide an update on its enforcement action activities.
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 449.
