LIBERTY ROAD MEDIA

Here are three Google Earth screenshots of 400 National Way Simi Valley, CA, which refer to this story–WTF? BANK OF AMERICA AND FANNIE MAE SUPPOSEDLY HAVE THE SAME ADDRESS AND PHONE NUMBER:

Metals buyers accused several financial services firms with commodities trading arms of working with metals storage warehouses to drive up aluminum prices by delaying the load-out of stored aluminum, in order to increase trading profits and warehouse revenue.
