Dang it Bill, when are you going to get a real account at a real bank – something like the 1st Bank of Bongolesia – where you know your money is secure and that it will not be subject to a federal bail-out?

I had to drop Bank of India my account was always getting accessed by unauthorized persons. I switched to the 1st Bank of Nigeria. Much safer.

Not to be funny, New Zealand has a Bank Of India branch here in Auckland . . . It's pretty snazzy and they do have some good term deposit conditions.

And now they have a branch in our 5th largest but second-fastest growing city, Hamilton :)
