      It is very curious to do this at late friday. In order to aboid panic?

      Also the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp only assures the first 100.000$ in deposits that will be in charge of ING bank. (You can go to http://www.netbank.com and you will see the welcome message of ING, of those deposits insured of course).

      We also can read this in the article of Money CNN:

      “NetBank had $109 million in deposit accounts that exceeded the FDIC limit. Those customers will become creditors in NetBank’s receivership, the FDIC said. The FDIC has a toll-free number for customers affected by the failure:1-888-256-6932.”

      What will happend next week? Total ignorance by the media or another week of panic?
