You are absolutely freaking right. One man does NOT make a bank fail. What happened to the loan committee that approves those loans? There were many others involved in the FALL of that bank. The truth may never come out because the fallguy took all the heat. Jail is jail and even drug dealers and rapists don't get 5 years. I say good luck to Mr Turner. His life is ruined. He committed a federal offense. He can never work again.

Thought a federal offense was a felony. But that may be just me.

<quoted text>that is exactly right. The board would not have approved the loans had the loan officer disclosed that he was part owner of the company requesting the loan! Duh
Have you seen all the loans that the board approved?? They are still trying to collect loans that the board approved for borrowers that turned sorry. To Mr. Turner's credit, he did NOT make all those loans. Every loan officer at the bank made loans that went bad and yes, even to those other loan officers friends. He is just getting all the blame, because someone has too and the board has found a scapegoat to lay the blame on. Do some more research before you start chucking information.

<quoted text>making badbloans will get you in heat with the FDIC but it is not againsgt the law! Loaning to friends is not against the law. Non disclosure on interest of ownership is against the law. Turner is only one that actually broke a law
Word is the investigation into the CEO and two board members only began a few months back. Could be it is still too early to know for sure how many took advantage of that mismanaged institution. Hopefully, the 'connections' of those now being investigated will not be able to bury the truth.

Looks like you've seen the list of loans approved by the board that went "bad". How about sharing that list? My guess is that you have no idea who borrowed what or when-except for maybe your loans and what has been written about in the paper.
Its a fact

If you are a shareholder, you can go to the Timberland Bancshares office and view the loans that were not changed to Southern Bancorp. If you do, you first have to sign a confidentiality agreement to not disclose the information, so you will most likely not see that info posted here.

Loan officers making loans to friends that end up not making good on them, hasn't that been going on for a long time? The guys at NBC were convicted. Drew Tennyson at Smackover State Bank is no longer allowed to make loans for that reason.

I am sick of reading all this BS! Yes, I am sure there is more to this. Yes, I believe that sorry a$$ wife should be going right along with him. She used to work at a bank also. According to her she resigned. According to the bank, well that's a different story. Ask others from the bank and see what they say. He is going to jail!!!!!! Yes, it may be a federal prison but prison is prison! There is no "good behavior" in the federal prison system. He will serve ALL 5 years!!! Don't get me wrong he deserves everything he is getting. He is an idiot! He chased a piece of A$$ and it cost him so much more. Maybe some of you other cheaters will take heed. Glad I was able to see what goes around comes around. I only hope I can see his "ex" wife get hers as well. The grass is always greener on the other side of the fence, wonder how green it will be from behind the fence?!

Why does it always come back around to her? Those of us who know her, know better. Those who worked with her and those who were her customers know better. Cheap shot going after her again.

Thank you! And I'm sure that every loan officer has made a loan that went south. There is no 100 percent gaurantee that every loan is going to go according to plan. And it drives me crazy that people say he "stole" the money. That makes it sound like he was stealing money out of the vault. He made loans to himself.

Wow, your clearly smart by using that language....you made not a dumb statement but an idiotic statement....I was just curious what you thought the difference was between what Mark did and if he had snuck into the vault and stole the same amount of money. by the way he stole stole stole stole stole that money....makes you crazy when people say that right?

Yes. He stole. He's an idiot and so are you. It does, however, make me crazy when people talk about what "HE" did and make it sound like it was the whole bank. There are a lot of great people that worked and still work there. I'm sure they are sick of hearing all this crap. And maybe you assumed I was defending him in some way, but I can assure you that is absolutely not the case.
And as for my language, it made me see red to post my thoughts and you single me out to call me dumb. So until you can keep from calling people names yourself, keep your co@@sucker shut!!!!

If people say "HE" stole stole stole stole that money then how is that saying it was the whole bank? I think people said their wasn't proper oversight and obviously that was true....sounds like your getting all bent out of shape because your dumb....Hey, by the way it's easy to flex your anonymous internet muscles on topix, I bet you wouldn't have the balls to say that in person....have a nice night dumbass I'm done here.
