Today’s final note brings with it a shake of the head and a ‘no, c’mon…you’re kidding, right?’

From the Federal Reserve, we have news that some of the checks sent to victims of foreclosure abuse — robo-signing, wrongful eviction — have bounced.

The good news is that it seems to be a paperwork snafu, not actually insufficient funds in the $3.5 billion settlement account.

But still.
