Stunad, below is a link that will bring you up to date. Its charters (there were some unit banks) were taken and some of its assets were sold to FTU. FTU DID NOT BUY SOUTHEAST IT PURCHASED SOME ASSETS. There are plenty of reasons to put a black hat on FTU, their treatment of the Southeast employees ain't one of 'em. That friggin finook Phil is the one what started demonizing FTU, if Phil's offer is so better why does he have to blast FTU? In making the Wachovia deal, FTU ain't done nothing wrong. Phil don't want the world to know how he screwed up the Wachovia deal in December.
