Facebook told advertisers that the platform can potentially “reach” 41 million young adults between 18 and 24 in the US.

Organized Fraud As A Business in [Market-Ticker]

Folks, where are the prosecutors? Why is this institution still in business? You can screw 3.5 million American customers, ripping them off on a systematic basis, and still remain in business?Exactly how and why?There’s no legitimacy left in the Federal Reserve (which I remind you is supposed to have effective regulatory controls to prevent this crap among their member banks) and none in the OCC either (which is the direct federal agency with authority and which can pull banking licenses.)Nor is Jeff Sessions, as Attorney General, worth a **** either — he both could and long ago should have indicted everyone involved in management as well as the firm itself.Yes, that would put them out of business. So what?Yeah, I get it — that would “hurt the economy.” So what?What is stealing from 3.5 million people? That doesn’t hurt the economy?
