The former president of Hume Bank in Bates County will go to prison for a fraud scheme that pushed the bank into insolvency.
Forty-year-old Jeffrey W. Thompson was sentenced Wednesday in federal court to six years, six months in prison without parole. He also was ordered to forfeit $300,000, or his home. He pleaded guilty last October.
Thompson admitted in his plea that for more than three years he covered up the fraud by lying to bank regulators about problem loans and altering bank records.
Due mostly to bad loans originated by Thompson, the bank was declared insolvent and closed in March 2008. The Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. insurance fund lost $4.3 million.
We are always seeking another good place to eat close to home, this Saturday Milton and Sue took us over to Hume, MO to check out the restaurant they had discovered there. Hume is about the same distance from the farm as Rich Hill and we were ready for something new.
It was darn hot, I was glad to get inside the cool building and out of the hot sun. The first thing I noticed was how nice the place was, they have really fixed the old building up; the place was clean and nicely decorated.
We ran into some folks who had been married. I had left my camera at home so I used my phone for pictures.
I walked around admiring the historical pictures from Hume's past; coal shovels, coal trains and coal trucks mostly; when I noticed a picture of Jesus and a picture of The Duke, I knew I was gonna like this place.
The iced tea was just what I needed after being out in the stifling heat Saturday.
The food was great, the service was excellent and the prices were quite fair. I ate light so I would have room for the Blackberry cobbler and ice cream. It was a hard decision because we were going to Rich Hill later and I was looking forward to a peanut butter shake from Swope's Drive In.
When we finished dinner, we headed on over the Bates County Produce at Rich Hill. They have the best darn soap you have ever used. Since we've had some of the grand-kids at our place all summer, we have been using up a lot of my favorite cinnamon soap.
While we were there we couldn't resist picking up some fresh melons, plums and some of that wonderful Amish produce.
The FDIC announced December 28, 2009 in a press release, that the Security Bank of Rich Hill had agreed to a fine of $4,000.
Not that long ago, The Security Bank of Rich Hill took over the troubled Hume Bank. More recently the former president of the now defunct Hume Bank was indicted for fraud.
I have added the document below for you to download.
It doesn't really appear that they got caught with their hand in the cookie jar, just more like the forgot to cross a couple T's and dot a couple of I's on some damn government form.
Probably just easier to pay off the government thugs than make a big deal about it.
ORDER TO PAY CIVIL MONEY PENALTY
IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that the Bank be, and hereby is, assessed a civil money penalty of $4,000 pursuant to section 8(i)(2) of the Act, 12 U.S.C. § 1818(i)(2), the receipt of which is hereby acknowledged.
Pursuant to delegated authority.
Dated this 17th day of November, 2009.

Merry Christmas to our friends, neighbors, clients and loved ones. May all your family and loved ones be well; and may you rest in the love and knowledge that Jesus Christ was born, lived and died for you and brought you forgiveness for your sins!
Happy Hanukkah to our Jewish friends may you be blessed and healthy as well.
So here are a few Cheery Seasonal pictures for you to enjoy. After looking at some of these I thought for sure some of them had to come from Hume, MO! hehehe!
I looked all over but I could not find any pictures for a redneck Hanukkah.
If you have some please let me know.
Surely there are some loud and proud Jewish rednecks out there.
States Attorney for the Western District of Missouri, Matt J Whitworth announced that the former president of the Hume Bank; Jeffrey W. Thompson, was indicted by a federal grand jury for bank fraud.
The Hume Bank was closed by the Missouri Division of Finance and the FDIC on March 7, 2008, and later assumed by the Security Bank of Rich Hill, MO.
Mr. Thompson aged 39 of Hume, MO became the president of the Hume Bank in 2001, he is accused of defrauding the bank and making false statements concealing problem loans. He is also accused of abusing the bank's credit card, using it for personal expenditures. (according to reports).
Some of the allegations involve loans to Brad Laning, a relative of Mr. Thompson's wife.
I have been helping the FDIC evaluate some of the property currently in foreclosure in Hume, MO; and from the properties I've seen the damage has just begun.
I did a BPO for the FDIC a few weeks ago that showed the actual property value to be drastically less than what was loaned against the home.
This is just another example of lenders and appraisers over-valuing homes and buyers walking away with a huge debt that cannot be recovered by liquidating the assets.
Thanks for visiting Bates County Real Estate.
I got a call from some folks with the FDIC last week, they have a property in Hume, MO they wanted a BPO (Brokers Price Opinion) on.
So Saturday my grandson Cody and I hauled on down to Hume, MO to check it out. I had been told to contact Gloria Appleberry with Glory Real Estate to get the keys, but she didn't have them. She told me to call the Hume Bank, which is no longer the Hume Bank but had been taken over by the FDIC and sold to Security Bank of Rich Hill, MO.
Well after a few phone calls, it seems nobody has the keys, so its a good thing I took my lock pick kit with me. I picked the locks with relative ease and got right in the home.
The house or sort-of house/trailer building located at Rt. 1 Box 175A Hume, MO 64752 was actually a trailer with a house built onto it.
It was a lot larger than I expected it to be, with 4 or maybe even a fifth bedroom. There was a garage behind the house, but no way to get a car to the garage because of the fence.
I took a lot of pics for the lender and here are a few of them.
We drove on through town and took a few shots of the rest of Hume, MO. I take every chance I get to photograph what I see. You never know when you may not get to see it again.
So here's a few more pics of the great town of Hume, MO
I'm headed over to Hume, MO this weekend to take a look at a property there for a BPO. The lender wants to know what I think the house is worth.
The home is located at Rt. 1 Box 175A Hume, MO 64752. The folks requesting this BPO gave me Gloria Appleberry with Glory Realty as a countact. She's a nice gal, helped me out with the location and told me the key is probably at the Hume Bank.
So I will trek on over to Hume this weekend to see what we have there.
I was doing some looking and it appears there are only three homes listed for sale in Hume, MO. Here is a link to those listings on the MLS. The link will expire after a few days, so contact me if I can be of further assistance.
