Communications

From: Matthew Phelan

To Whom It May Concern:

This is a request under the Freedom of Information Act. I hereby request the following records:

All complaints sent to the FDIC—as well as all records, reports, correspondences, and memoranda produced by the FDIC or sent to the FDIC by other entities—that reference Eastech International Bank Ltd.

Eastech International Bank Ltd was the subject of several "warning circulars" posted to the FDIC website in coordination with Canada's Office of the Superintendent of Financial Institutions Canada, Rulings and Compliance Division. Examples can be seen at the following links: <https://fdic.gov/news/news/inactivefinancial/1997/fil9735a.html> ; <https://www.fdic.gov/news/news/inactivefinancial/1995/fil9563a.html >; and <https://www.fdic.gov/news/news/inactivefinancial/2001/fil0147b.html>.

The requested documents will be made available to the general public, and this request is not being made for commercial purposes. In order to help to determine my status for purposes of determining the applicability of any fees, you should know that I am a representative of the news media, and this request is made as part of news gathering (i.e. again, not for a commercial use).

I am willing to pay fees for this request up to a maximum of $100.00 USD. In the event that there are fees, I would be grateful if you would inform me of the total charges in advance of fulfilling my request. I would prefer the request filled electronically, by e-mail attachment if available or CD-ROM if not. I also include a telephone number (917.859.1266) at which I can be contacted during the hours of 9:00 am to 9:00pm, if necessary, to discuss any aspect of my request.

Thank you in advance for your anticipated cooperation in this matter. I look forward to receiving your response to this request within 20 business days, as the statute requires.

Sincerely,

Matthew Phelan

RE: FDIC FOIA Request Log Number 16-0410

Dear Mr. Phelan:

Reference is made to my letter of August 26, 2016, under cover of which I delivered to you our interim response to your August 19, 2016 Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request for "All complaints sent to the FDIC-as well as all records, reports, correspondences, and memoranda produced by the FDIC or sent to the FDIC by other entities-that reference Eastech International Bank Ltd." For your convenience, a copy of my August 26, 2016 letter is attached.
Our August 26, 2016 response informed you that the processing of this request had been abated. The interim response further informed you that if I did not receive, within ten calendar days of the date of that letter, your written response addressing the issues noted, this request file would be closed.

More than ten calendar days have elapsed since our interim response was delivered to you and I have not received your reply. Therefore, for the reasons stated in the interim response, your request file now is being closed. You may submit a new FOIA request at any time.

Sincerely,

Jerry Sussman, Sr. FOIA Specialist
