Capital One Money Laundering Gets $390M Fine From FinCEN As PNC Is Sued For Usury

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon
BBC - Guardian UK - Honduras - ESPN

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Jan 15 – Capital One has been fined $390 million by FinCEN, for anti-money laundering violations. This comes on top of predatory lending, on autos and otherwise.  Inner City Press and Fair Finance Watch will have more on this.

Meanwhile, PNC Bank and its Midland Loan Services have been sued for usury, predatory lending and civil conspiracy, under New York and Federal law.  

 The complaint docketed on December 29 in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York, which Inner City Press covers, describes PNC's lending on a number of homes and allegedly racking up $250 charges.

It questions the reporting on line 205 of the HUD statement. When the plaintiff questioned it, he was called an "assh*ole." 

 The case is filed while PNC seeks to buy the US retail banking business of BBVA for $16 billion, an application to the Federal Reserve Board and other regulators which is subject to the Community Reinvestment Act.

 The case is Barli v. PNC Bank, NA et al., 20-cv-11027 (Castel)
