  1. Hi:
    On March 26, 1986 a letter from the FDIC that they were being audited by the firm of Rose, Eubank, Betts & Co., the records of Farmers State Bank, Sargent Nebraska that was in Liquidation on a personal Farm and Livestock loan I had with the bank. The FDIC since has liquidated several hundreds of thousands of dollars of my assets far exceeding my $115,635.73 balance on my loan.
    The question I have is how can I get the FDIC audited on the money they received from the additional sale of my property that far exceeds the amount I owed according to the audit done by your office
