Mainstreet Bank of Forest Lake, Minnesota, was slapped with an FDIC cease-and-desist order for unsafe lending practices. It seems like just yesterday that banks only knew how to lend recklessly, but the FDIC says Main Street Bank can no longer turn to its old ways. 

Mainstreet Bank of Forest Lake, one of Minnesota’s largest and oldest community banks, has received a cease-and-desist order from the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp., alleging “hazardous lending and lax collection practices.”
