SEC. 81-5-81. Effect of third-party deposits to induce making of unsound loans.
The Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, the Comptroller of the Currency, the Federal Reserve Bank, or the state comptroller, department of bank supervision, State of Mississippi, is hereby authorized to freeze any deposit which is made by any third party for the purpose of enticing any bank in the State of Mississippi, whether state or national, into making a loan which is unsafe and unsound and which does not mature prior to any attempt to withdraw such deposit so used to entice the making of said loan. This statute relates to deposits and loans which are not related in the customary function of business but are manipulated and procured by third parties (by whatever name known) for profit and the withdrawal or attempt to withdraw said deposit before said loan is sufficiently satisfied shall be sufficient authority for any state or federal supervising authority to act promptly on evidence presented to it or obtained by said agency. If any bank in the State of Mississippi shall be put into liquidation and such deposit and loan arrangements have made any contribution whatsoever to the insolvency of said bank, then the state or federal agency, the duly appointed liquidating agency or receiver, or the appropriate chancery court in charge of the liquidation of said bank shall have the right and duty to withhold any liquidating dividends or payments for said deposit or deposits until the loan or loans which the deposits have influenced are fully satisfied, and the liquidating agent or receiver shall have the right upon the approval of the chancery court to assign said loan or loans so influenced to the depositor or depositors in satisfaction of said deposit or deposits claimed against the assets of the bank in liquidation.
