Yes, make a police report.

Contact the the US Office of Thrift Supervision to make a complaint.

Write to your US Senator and US Representative explaining that consumer’s need to be protected

Regarding Going to Court: META BANK’s CEO, J. Tyler Haahr or J. Tyler Haahr, Jr. is an attorney and their focus has been on been on defense and acting under the radar. Politically well connected and experienced in posturing and leverages. This is nothing more than a game for J. Tyler Haahr.

Some very sad cases pertaining to the interior management highlight META BANK’s anticipation of litigation and regulation.

Example # One

Customers Sue Bank to Get Back CD Money Stolen by the Bank’s Employee

Comments (30)

Jul 14, 2009 – 8:08 AM by Ken – Bank Deals Guy

As reported by the CU Times, “Nearly 50 credit unions, municipalities and pension funds have filed suit against Iowa-based MetaBank to recover $4 million in allegedly stolen certificate of deposit funds.” A former MetaBank employee pleaded guilty to the theft. Employee theft at a bank is troubling, but what is much more troubling is that the bank’s customers are having to sue to get back their deposits and interest. Here’s an excerpt from The Des Moines Register

MetaBank said “it does not appear at this time that she stole any bank money as part of this fraud,” but the bank says there are still “unresolved questions as whether, under what theory and to what degree the bank might be liable for the former employee’s actions.”

Another thing that makes this case troubling is that the customers victimized were financial institutions. One would think they had professionals making and verifying the deposits at MetaBank.

I find it hard to believe that MetaBank didn’t quickly pay the affected customers of all of their deposits and interest. With this publicity, who would trust MetaBank with their money? I’m also surprised that MetaBank’s regulators didn’t require them to immediately make their depositors whole. An attorney for one of the affected credit union’s made a good point in The Des Moines Register article:

“Frankly, it would undermine the entire banking system if a bank is allowed to refuse to pay back deposits on the basis that someone thereafter stole them, especially when the thief was one of their own branch supervisors,”

You might think that the FDIC would protect depositors in his case, but FDIC insurance does not cover losses due to theft or fraud. One important thing you can do to protect yourself is to check your balances online and check your statements monthly. As described by the OCC’s website:

Your deposit account agreement states that it’s your responsibility to review your periodic statement and advise the bank of any errors. Generally, you have 30 days from the statement date to find the error and notify the bank.

This might not help if the criminal employee is able to falsify the statements and the online balances. Another thing that may help is avoid dependence on any one bank representative. Dealing with multiple employees can make it harder for one rogue employee to get away with fraud. Please leave a comment if you have any other advice on how to prevent being a victim of this type of fraud?

I used to laugh when I heard about the “old days”, when people put their money in a mattress because they did not trust banks. The more I read, the less I laugh.

ChrisCD -Tuesday, July 14, 2009 – 2:09 PM

It is quite interesting to also read the comments from the IA newspaper articled linked above.

We are sadly, familiar with this case. You have an interesting quote that Metabank said “no bank money was stolen”. Metabank never cared about the 50 or so client’s that expected them to hire trustworthy employees. The 50 clients who purchased the CDs were Metabank’s customers as well. Does Metabank care about any of their clients? Further more, according to the FDIC, when you make a deposit at a bank, you are immediately covered and protected… Unless your money is stolen.

We had actually contacted the FDIC multiple times. After all, they released a Bill of Rights this year that basically said your deposit is safe and insured as long as it is under the FDIC insurance limits. Banking Guy points out, the FDIC does not cover loss due to fraud or theft (I’ve also heard a rumor that they don’t cover deposits if the building is destroyed by fire). The fact is the FDIC only covers deposits if the bank fails. The FDIC basically always said, it wasn’t their problem.

More amazing about this case, is monthly checks were sent out to each depositor, each month. The checks always cleared. The clients received safekeeping receipts and many rolled over their CD, year-after-year. There was never any reason to believe fraud was going on. It is so hard to believe that this went on so long, undetected.

The newspaper article also has an interesting quote from Metabank about justice being served now that she has pleaded guilty. Justice has not been served.. There are still about 42 clients that have not had their $99,000 returned.

You do make a great point about the dangers of only working with one bank employee. Far too often, you think you have a good contact at a bank so you always call them about issues. Occasionally, calling someone else would be a good idea. However, once the funds have been stolen, it is too late.

I do wonder if other banks would have behaved any differently. After all, if the FDIC isn’t going to pressure them, who will.

Hopefully, now that the case is getting press, Metabank will do the right thing and return the funds (and of course cover the attorney fees that clients have had to incur up until this point). I would also hope that some serious changes can be made so that cases like this are not allowed to drag on for so long.

This article should really make us all stop and consider its implications. FDIC does not cover employee theft. Any suggestions, other than generic check your account, which is an after the fact discovery? Do we now need to ask a bank if we are covered, as customers, by their “blanket bond?” Could a CSR even answer that question? Does this issue mean we might have to return to distinguishing national banks for state banks? Is the issue different for credit unions? Any insight into this issue is appreciated.

ChrisCD –  Tuesday, July 14, 2009 – 4:49 PM


I won’t be much help here. First, I don’t believe an employee would know the answer. And even though, banks and credit unions carry a bond on their employees and insurance policies against losses such as fire, that doesn’t mean the policies will pay. In this case, the claim was made, but the bonding company refused. Personally, I don’t really blame the bonding company, after all for about 18-months, no charges were even filed. Were they supposed to take the bank’s word for it?

Secondly, I believe the NCUA operates the same way as the FDIC. They are only insuring your funds against closure of the institution.

Finally, I don’t think it would matter whether it was state chartered or nationally chartered.

To be honest, in all of my years in this business, I had never run up against a situation like this. But, that doesn’t help the 42 customers who are now affected.

The only insight would be a letter writing campaign to the FDIC and your elected officials. The FDIC should have gotten involved. The depositor shouldn’t be put on hold until the case is solved. The depositors were able to prove in a matter of days that they had all wired in funds and had safekeeping documents. They are the innocent victims. Some sort of law should be added that funds have to be returned within a reasonable time frame, like 90-days.

The fact is that controls that are in place at banks should be sufficient. Most banks have a two or three-tiered system for handling wires and changes to accounts. I really don’t believe most people need to worry about their deposits. But some changes to the law could secure and protect them more.

JCE –  Tuesday, July 14, 2009 – 6:43 PM

Everyone who has an account with this bank should close their accounts as soon as possible and tell customer service it’s because of how they did not make restitution to the accounts that had monies stolen, this will send a clear message to the bank to do the right thing or they will be forced out of business.

Tuphat –  Wednesday, July 15, 2009 – 6:48 AM

@ 5:42 — A more appropriate example would be a customer depositing cash through a teller, then the teller taking the cash. Any distinction between “the bank’s money” and “the customer’s money” is irrelevant after the duly authorized agent of the bank (the teller) accepted the deposit. Metabank seems to be getting terrible legal advice, probably from a law firm with a vested interest in protracted litigation.

Here it is “a law firm with a vested interest in protracted litigation.”

Meta Payment Systems Inc. Reports Earnings Results for the Second Quarter Ended March 31, 2011

Meta Payment Systems Inc. reported earnings results for the second quarter ended March 31, 2011.

For the second quarter, the company recorded net income of $2.2 million, or 70 cents per diluted share, as compared to $6.5 million, or $2.17 per diluted share for the same period last year.

Revenue decreased by 48.7%, from $41.6 million in fiscal 2010 to $21.3 million in 2011.[So does METABANK Push this loss off onto their customer base? But it was their own actions that put them into this situation in the first place. Investors are you paying attention here?]

The revenue and income declines in this quarter were mostly due to the discontinuance of the iAdvance and certain income tax-related programs.[However, please note all of the income that J. Tyler Haahr makes a year. Are investors also making this kind of  income?]

Further comments about how METABANK handled the embezzlement
ChrisCD – Wednesday, July 15, 2009
“I’m not saying the FDIC should pay, I’m saying they should have intervened or legislation should be in place that allows them to intervene.I am saying, the bank is responsible for the actions of their employees. They hired them. Their controls or lack there of allowed the theft to occur and carry on for a number of years. And although, they carry insurance and bonds to cover such, when that process has broken down, they should step-up to the plate. If I were a stockholder, I would seriously question the quality of the people representing my investment. One bad apple can certainly hurt the investment. As a stockholder, I would be seriously concerned about why controls weren’t in place or how they broke down if they were. I would rather my bank step-up and gain in reputation, vs. hide behind procedures and law suits.I would say there is a big difference between a Thug and an employee turned Thief. The bank didn’t (I hope) hire the Thug. The bank did hire the employee and the bank’s controls and processes failed.”

Anonymous – Wednesday, July 15, 2009 – 12:54 PM

What is scary is that a bad employee can transfer almost all of the money out of the bank and nobody will be responsible for it.
Fraud, theft, embezzlement and number of other creative mischiefs can render the bank insolvent and FDIC will just wipe their hands off of it.

Nice banking system we have!!!!!!!

“We all place a lot of trust and faith in our banks. My profession and livelihood depend on banks being trustworthy and honest. But if the banks and companies of the world are going to take the route of pointing the finger elsewhere until we all turn to dust, it is just a little scary.

For the record, I have deposits at multiple banks and I’m not going to panic and rush out and withdraw all of my money. I just believe some changes can be made to make us feel better about our bank deposits.”

Anonymous – Thursday, July 16, 2009 – 10:21 AM

What will stop the CEO or the president to transfer all of the customers money out of the country in a secret bank accounts and close the doors.
They disappear and enjoy the stolen money. FDIC shrugs off the shoulders and says: tough luck, it is not our responsibility.
End of the story……

[MetaBank has a Swiss Branch so they could actually do this. It is called foresight. Right!!!]


Back to Example #1: Embezzlement of CD Money within METABANK:

i. Why wasn’t this embezzlement  found during an internal audit?

ii. What were the supervisors for this one employee [Pickhinkle] doing while they say she was embezzling?

iii. I find it odd that METABANK didn’t want to keep this out of the media since it highlights their own poor internal practices.

[So all the embezzlement blame was pushed off onto one employee within METABANK who was sent to jail. By the way, I am not connected to that person in anyway, but I feel that she may well have been set up by METABANK to take all of the blame.   METABANK came out smelling like a rose or did they?  In my mind, METABANK is not good for the future of the USA nor for our economy.]

[J. Tyler Haahr is a litigator. Was that bank employee set up? It looks like it to me. Or, METABANK has such poor internal practices that this could happen? Either way, better and more effective bank regulations are needed.]


Example # 2 BOESEN

Boesen’s business ventures, which were extensive, were failing. He was behind in his tax payments also.

META BANK indicated that BOESEN had presented them with falsified information to get a loan.

META BANK never did any research to check out the paper work they were given? Many times, METABANK advertises that bad credit, no problem, they will be able to give you a loan. This is basically a set up for failure for any potential customer. METABANK is basically telling you that they will treat you like dirt, as a customer.

The actions and normal operating practices of METABANK didn’t provide BOESEN with a real solution nor did METABANK act as a friend or a good neighbor to BOESEN. In none of the documents presented to the public, METABANK never mentioned that they had counseled BOESEN to seek financial counseling or psychological counseling so that he could find ways to liquidate, as in go into legal bankruptcy before they would give him a loan. METABANK’s ordinary operating practices let them make monetary advances to a very poor credit risk, BOESEN. They took advantage of BOESEN’s situation and it was all legal. METABANK pushed the blame off onto the customer and the judge believed them.

[ I remembered that METABANK had lied to me and tried to push  blame off  on me as their former customer, pulled in through a company I had used locally for years. They said that I hadn’t given them my contact information, but they had sent me a cash out check to my addressed and the canceled check would have been in their files.  I have now also severed my relationship with that company since I would never be able to trust them again. So METABANK isn’t good for the partner company either.]

After BOESEN committed suicide, METABANK went after all of his assets; this was their plan all the time. BOESEN’s wife was unaware of the loan; she hadn’t signed for it. This is very unusual for getting such a large advance, but METABANK gave the loan. Usually banks require the signature of both spouses to even get a credit card; METABANK knew what they were doing, BOESEN was destined to fail and they wanted to get everything when he had to liquidate which was inevitable.

After his death by suicide, METABANK pushed the blame off onto BOESEN saying that he had provided them with falsified  documents. Note the word “FALSIFIED” because it will come up again, and again and become a pattern for METABANK.

Boesen’s widow was left with only something like $50,000.00 which was considered by the court to be one year’s living expense. [I find this amount to be ridiculous. Have you considered what one year of expenses would be for tuition at a private college would be? BOSEN’s WIDOW was being pushed into a state of penury.] J. Tyler Haahr, an attorney, may have delighted in being able to exercise his talents as a litigator. It appears as if he was prepared for this situation because METABANK clearly got as much as they could get out of BOESEN’s estate. METABANK specializes in collections and they have collection agents in place ready to serve. This is in their publicity to get partner companies, but the relationship starts out by being nothing but a scam; the intention is to set in place a situation where collection agencies are put into action sooner rather than later. In the past Collection Agencies may have been used as a last resort; for METABANK it is part of their original intent.

BOESEN must have been pushed to beyond the limit at the most vulnerable time in his life. I blame METABANK for his death; their practices do not serve to help humanity, simply to make more and more money for themselves.


 Example #3: Network Branded Prepaid Card Association
The Network Branded Prepaid Card Association (NBPCA) is a non-profit, inter-industry trade association that supports the growth and success of network branded prepaid debit cards and represents the common interests of the many players in this new and rapidly growing payments category. For additional information, visit or our Twitter page.[METABANK is spreading disaster]

[METABANK’s Brad Hansen was instrumental in getting the D.C. Lobbyist, Rupli and Associates to advocate and push through influence in the US Senate and in the US House of Representatives so that these cards could proliferate. Huge sums of money were donated to this endeavor by the NBPCA and METABANK, one of the founders of this “NON-PROFIT”; the money either went to Rupli or to our elected officials.

Now these PREPAID CARDS are everywhere. They are so common that they seem normal, and as if they are that common then they must be okay for consumers. Nothing could be further from the truth, these PREPAID BANK CARDS weren’t designed to help the average person, the regular consumer, to make it or to succeed. Customers are encouraged to use these cards often and to attach their paychecks to a direct deposit system that is very good for the bank, but this puts the consumer into a form of economic slavery.

Non-Profits are usually associated with charities and serving the underprivileged so that they can improve their situation in some significant way. METABANK brags that they were one of the first to serve the “underserved” in the banking system. This may sound altruistic, but they set it up that they would charge higher interest rates for their loans.

How in the world did the Network Branded Prepaid Card Association legally qualify as a non-profit?

They treat their PREPAID BANK CARD HOLDERS as if they were also a poor credit risk; they are more than willing to lie to the customer just to keep ahold of your hard earned money. Schemes, far fetched schemes, are created within METABANK to make it so they can and will hold onto your money. Never mind that the reasons given make no sense to you as their customer; they don’t care. It is simply a set up so METABANK can hold onto their customer’s money, keeping it out of the reach of the customer to whom the money actually belongs. METABANK gets free interest and use of the customer’s money, but they lend it out at exaggerated rates. Is that fair? or is this USURY? USURY….this is USURY!!!

Once again, J. Tyler Haahr is a litigator. He is prepared for a protracted time period of litigating hoping to exhaust the former customer’s funds and exasperate them with ridiculous schemes. Why do the judges appear to go along with METABANK’s dark scheme?


Money helps. People who have money tend to have power. People like people who have money.

Monied and well educated, J. Tyler Haahr would have been working on forming connections. He serves on committees and boards, such as at the YMCA. This only is to build up his appearance in the community.

METABANK’s collectors appear to be far more like those “BOOKIES” that used to  appear in old B-rated movies. How safe would any judge be if they decided against METABANK’s actions and the ways that METABANK hurts the lives of so many people?

J. Tyler Haahr may know the law well and he is anticipating going into court. Consumers aren’t. ]



PAYONEER is a branch of METABANK. On their website, they advertise that they have the best technology in the world to ascertain whether documents are legitimate or not. About 26 people bought PREPAID BANK CARDS from PAYONEER using false ID’s and then flew to Dubai where they committed a murder.

They all turned out to be part of the Israeli Moussad and their victim was a Palestinian whom they didn’t like. The issue isn’t whether that Palestinian had done anything wrong in society’s mind; the issue is that one man in te world was denied the right to a fair and impartial trial in a court of law.

International news networks traced the PREPAID BANK CARDS back to their connection to METABANK. Iowa residents couldn’t believe that Storm Lake Iowa would be involved in any kind of international assassination with as great of implications as this assassination had. That man was left in his hotel room to look like he had died of natural causes; local Dubai police did their work and found out that he had been suffocated.

That man, denied a fair and impartial trial no doubt has family and some friends whom he left behind after his death. Those people will not be happy most likely about his death.What METABANK did was sell PREPAID BANK CARDS to people they said had presented false ID’s so it wasn’t their fault.  When the media came knocking at their door with questions, METABANK sent out a medium ranking bank official to talk to the media. She was a very recently hired employee who was obviously given a script. She had no other insider’s information that she could share with the media, and her face would have had a genuine expression on it. She really didn’t have any more information; she was not a high ranking officer  of the bank and she was too new. This was a very well orchestrated response for the world. METABANK said that they had been given falsified documents by those people who were trying to get their PREPAID BANK CARD at PAYONEER.

So once again, the term “FALSIFIED DOCUMENTS” were presented to METABANK, but the blame belongs to the person who presented the documents.

[Had METABANK not lied to me, I may have viewed these situations in a different light, but it is impossible for me to think of METABANK as an innocent.]

[Their actions over and over again highlight that no one should do business with METABANK or a bank like them. Partner companies should be warned that in the long run your customer base will be driven away.]


Ok, so we have a repeated pattern that METABANK:

  • push blame off onto the consumer,
  • protracted litigation is in their favor,
  • keep the consumer’s own money from them,
  • make up lies to give as an excuse for their actions
  • take advantage of consumer’s for METABANK’s gain
  • METABANK has operated using many different names, but it is always the same gimmicks and intention to get their collectors into action


Your situation indicates that METABANK or an entity operating like METABANK took your money but that METABANK won’t let you access your own money. This is a pattern that is unfortunately common to METABANK practices. They do this to many people, but it would take great effort and expense to take METABANK to court. Once in court for some reason, METABANK tends to prevail. Why? Something is seriously wrong. I see their pattern. Certainly others do as well. This will stop when enough people demand the changes that are needed:

Ok, so we have a repeated pattern that METABANK pushes blame off onto to anyone and everyone else. They also have full control of your money that you tried to put on the PREPAID BANK CARD; this would have already given them free use of your money.

Why does METABANK want even more use of your money? Greed? Personal self-interest? Lack of empathy? Te need to compete and to win at all costs?

The American public and the world needs to be protected from unscrupulous banks like METABANK. They seem to be spreading their “word” faster than any gospel message is moving at this time. Nothing seems to be in place to protect the consumer. We live in an age that is over run and dominated by unscrupulous banks and corporations; it is all about making more and more money for them. Each move is well studied; they have the money to hire consultants that the general public simply doesn’t have. It is for us to speak up so that no one else must suffer from the actions and attitude of banking practices of METABANK and those banks they are training.

Quite frankly, I am tired of being pulled into wars trying to protect the interests of big corporations and banks like METABANK. Person to person, we learn that we have no conflicts with Others. We are being set up to send our youth to fight in faraway places, people who may be just like us, and then return to live in poverty and indebtedness. Change is needed.

Please write to as many people you can explaining your experience and help to get the changes we so desperately need put in place to protect consumers.
