  • i just don't get it. citi sells and Freddy buys. both are expert in this field. i guess Freddy is run by a bunch of bozos. their main business is to purchase risk loans granted to unqualified purchaser and once they have taken the bad decision they deresponsalise themself. what a bunch on incompetent

  • Where this money will go? legally it should go to existing share holders and not to the treasury.This is the amount of compensation to the share holders and treasury has nothing to do with it.
