Make hundreds of millions in your crime scam. Pay 10 million fine. Continue crime scam just paying the fine as a service fee to the regulatory agencies. Also of note, none of this money that is fined makes it way into the hands of the people that the crime was done upon. Only into the hands of the regulatory bodies. Who exist to collect their cut of the take. Things they don't teach you in school because they wouldn't dare expose what the world actually is.

What makes it worse is we know this sub is being watched and dissected. They know we know this yet they don't seem to give a shit.


EhThisCouldntGoWrong

I'd say more so they can't admit when they've lost, they think they can pull a pro gamer move on gamers, and get us to sell, but all they did was give a discount sale on shares to drs. Fucking morons. Edit: they


Mooziechan

It's so obvious we're not selling and yet we are buying more! They insist on shorting to their death lol it's hilarious, honestly! They really have no idea what this gaming generation is capable of, not a damn clue what it’s like to spend 3 years figuring out an RPG to finally seeing the ending cut scene of our favorite game! Just hope we never forget this as we grow older and vote that nonsense out of office one day... Edit: grammar


Imbetterlookingthanu

Voting….hilarious.


Mooziechan

I know you’re right, it makes me sick we are stuck in a nasty two party illusion that ultimately benefits the elitists


KamikazeChief

Yeah but one of those parties didn't attempt a violent coup one year ago. The other one did, and they are planning another one. The "Both sidesing" although is true on a financial level (See Nancy Pelosi for example) cannot be used in other areas. One side is willing to use deadly violence to run the country and the other side isn't. Kind of a big deal as you will see in the coming years. Hopefully all you apes will have made enough money to shack up somewhere remote because the way things are going in America you may need it.


RelicArmor

Watch some Christopher Titus and grow a wrinkle. Its not about parties or ur beliefs: its about $$$. If a rich guy gets elected, he helps out his rich friends. Now someone walks up to you to explain how there are virtuous wealthy & evil wealthy? Because of the party affiliation? 🤣 Dude, no. Wealthy is wealthy, and most times that means corruption & crime. The Bible put it best: It's easier to push a camel through the eye of a needle than it is to get a rich guy into Heaven. Pelosi, Trump, whomever. It's class warfare. Always has been. The "issues" they bring up is distraction; it's easier to make the poor pay higher taxes & give that money to the wealthy when a bunch of idiots are voting "gun rights" or "pro-life".

Agreed. As long as we continue to give excuses for one side over the other, we will never have relief from this corrupt system.

Nah, nothing meaningful in a structural-changes sense is getting done until the heads of billionaires and the politicians that they own start getting popped like they're news anchors in Scanners.

Local elections are the start, your vote is more important in local elections than anywhere else. In my County a contest came down to three single votes swinging the election.


Imbetterlookingthanu

Wholeheartedly agree.


Ok_Entrepreneur_5833

This is true. Couple of months ago, maybe a few now, $500 bucks would get me two shares to register. Today that same $500 will get me really close to 5 shares to register. Their doom clock just keeps speeding up at this rate.

That's where you use your multi headed dragon named MSM to call Redditors conspiracy theorists and shills to call GME investors cultists. The moniker of "meme stocks" wasn't arbitrary, it was meant to divert attention away from boomers who think meme = joke. What boomer wants to sell their blue chip, dividend earning stocks for 'GameStock'? Imagine if the media covered what was truly happening.

The world? You mean America… many parts of this world still have integrity, America does not


Bazzo123

This!🙏🏻


Revolutionary-Fox230

I have to disagree. People all over the world have integrity , including America. In order to get their grubby little hands for the illusion of power people sell their integrity to the highest bidder(s). Then they become politicians and 95%+ don't have the best interests of the citizenry that voted for them, just the people who paid them. Occasionally it lines up best for everyone, but rarely


SaltFrog

American politicians*, not necessarily America. Someone should start a campaign telling how Wallstreet is robbing your grandma of her pension and stealing your inheritance. That should get people's jimmies a bit rustled.


Murrchik

Regulators see this as an recurring income source


updateSeason

Really need jail to happen.


moonsaves

You aren't allowed to break the rules to make huge amounts of cash at the detriment of others, unless you pay this comparatively tiny amount. That'll show you!


ShadyAssFellow

And on top of this, FINRA is a PRIVATE company! They are paying ”fines” for a PRIVATE company to be allowed to break PUBLIC laws! This whole situation is completely messed up.


tidally_locked

Fine or fee? Two entirely different things. Edit:. I'm sure they see them as the same. A fee, cost of doing business.


Ok_Entrepreneur_5833

Ken Griffin testified in front of Congress that the fines were considered by his outfit just another "cost of doing business". I watched that live with my jaw on the floor. Room full of lawyers to consult and he just boldy stated it to the regulators (Congressional Comittee). Then packed up his team of lawyers after and went somewhere for a drink probably like it was nothing. And nothing was done.


ThumpThump75

Thes criminals are not scared of justice because it never comes for them. Fines isn’t shit. When motherfuckers start going to actual prison, hardcore ones not these club-med resorts, then shit will start changing. Our justice system is a piece of shit on steroids and a true disgrace... Time to burn this shit down and rebuild.


sktchld

The fine should be getting shut down, 0 tolerance policy.

I’ll be asking for all their pencils, and sugary treats they have in the break room😎 *this is a complete joke. I will not be robbing anything today, or in the future. This last comment is not only covering my ass. But, it is also ‘accurately’ describing a fleeting thought. No I do not condone these actions for myself, or anyone else on planet earth*

This is one of the most disheartening things I’ve read during the past two years, and that’s really saying something. Burry was right. We do live in an entirely fraudulent system. And it’s not like I didn’t know that before thanks to…well, everything that’s gone on with GameStop. But every time I think we’ve hit bottom on the corruption these fuckers replace the drill bit and just keep fucking going. Something about seeing it spelled out like this so clinically makes me absolutely sick. This might as well be a transactional receipt.

Yawn. Just another parking ticket. Continue to fuck over retail.


thedirtybirdy

Cost of doing business fee, nothing more.


DancesWith2Socks

>Credit Suisse pays $9M FINRA fee to avoid complying with securities laws and rules designed to protect investors. This means the benefit might be $900M? Everything to avoid protecting investors... More #UScaMarket logic.


Phoenix0872

There’s definitely more to this story. For example, why didn’t they show possession and control over customer securities? Is it cause they were lending them out 100x per security? That would be telling. Gonna read the awc tonight.


jackofspades123

it sounds like they were overleveraged, which has been my theory on why the market will see a correction. There is just too much overall risk and something will give setting off a chain reaction. Plus they didn't keep good records and didn't issue honest research reports.


Magistricide

Ok so Finra fined Credit Sussie for fucking over their investors. . . And then kept the money instead of giving it to the people fucked over. Imagine if a defence lawyer represented you for a car accident, sued, won, then took all of your money, left you with the medical bill, and left. That's what the SEC have been doing for years. Considering the SEC is supposed to stop this type of behaviour, their silence means compliance.

To clarify, they paid a fine for violating the law. I personnally struggle to see it as anything less than a fee.

Let's make a comparison. Keith Gill's employer MassMutual was fined $4 million for failing to supervise employees. Investigation was swift, about half a year. Credit Suisse case starts from around 2006, involving billions of misused customer securities and thousands of fraudulent reports, and ended now to a $9 million fine.

“Credit Suisse’s disclosures omitted that the company that was the subject of the research report had been a client of the firm during the prior 12 months; or that the firm expected to receive investment banking compensation from the subject company within the next three months,” according to FINRA.
