Indymac lied to me too!
I had a similar thing happen. Indymac told me I was insured for $200000 because I had a ITF account. I knew about the $100000 per account rule but this bank employer (from India) told me this and I trusted him. Now the FDIC says it's my fault for not being informed and 'knowing they were lying'. They can't get away with this and the consumers need to act. Are there people willing to complain and how can we do this as I group. I was lied to and even today the FDIC said I could take out my CD without penalties, then Indymac sent me an email that there would be penalties?? This is a small bump but the larger issue is how can we fight this, . Any ideas? I lost $27, 000, single mom, life savings...not a savvy banker, but I did trust this person, why wouldn't I? The FDIC agent said to call and complain at the Office for Thrift Supervision @800-842-6929, call your Congressman, call Attorney General's Office in CA? Any thoughts?
