SUBJECT: Entity Is Conducting Banking Operations Without Authorization
Summary: The Office of the Comptroller of the Currency has informed the FDIC that cease-and-desist orders have been issued against Destiny Capital Mortgage Inc., doing business as Destiny Capital Mortgage Bank, Irving, Texas, for unauthorized banking and mortgage banking activities.

The Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC) has advised the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) that the State of Texas Department of Banking and the Texas Savings and Loan Department have issued cease-and-desist orders against Destiny Capital Mortgage, Inc., doing business as Destiny Capital Mortgage Bank, Irving, Texas, for unauthorized banking and mortgage banking activities.
