    Wah, top 3 from US and China is not that bad. What is the ranking for Malaysia? Drop to 500?

    There are some U.S. banks, especially the top 2 on your list, that have been involved in “Signing Affidavits Without Reviewing Foreclosure Documents”. Millions of folks in the U.S. have lost homes because the managers did not check the documents at all. That is highly immoral and unethical, to say the least. “It don’t mean nothing” whether they are the biggest or the smallest banks. They must have ethical and moral directives in place to be called the biggest. They have filled up their treasuries on the miseries of folks that have lost their homes.
