BOSTON – The U.S. Attorney’s Office in Massachusetts announced a $4.9 billion settlement with The Royal Bank of Scotland Group plc (RBS Group) resolving federal civil claims that RBS Group’s subsidiaries in the United States (RBS) misled investors in the underwriting and issuing of residential mortgage-backed securities (RMBS) between 2005 and 2008. The penalty is the largest imposed by the Justice Department for financial crisis-era misconduct at a single entity under the Financial Institutions Reform, Recovery, and Enforcement Act of 1989, which allows the Justice Department to seek civil penalties for violations of criminal statutes.

Ok.

When does the money get distributed to savers thieved of their money over the years etc.  Don't hold your breath.

To be fair $4.9 billion sounds a snip for RBS - you can just see them after the judgment slapping themselves on the back and saying we got away with it.  Like muzzer minicab chancer professional criminals getting a 2 year suspended sentence.
