Douglas Howard, V.P. from Indian Springs State Bank in Kansas City told me all about Mr Azima. So did Douglas Haynes the President of the Bank. I guess Mr Azima never had to pay back any loans he owned them. I could care less. But thought it unprofessional for bankers to bitch about a past customer they gave credit too without doing any due diligence

^^ I think it's funny that Professional(s) "told" you personal business of another . Which would be unethical and speak volumes for their own character. Your ship must sail at half mast.
