Hey it's not like I'm investing with them and would see a return on my money
If you put your money in a European bank, your deposits are insured to 100k Euros (US, $250k).
If you put it in an 'offshore bank' looking for high returns (Cyprus) you have no insurance.....excepting that because Cyprus is in the EuroZone, they were able to get a bailout and bank deposits were insured to 100k.
If that were a Cayman or Bahamian bank, depositors would lose all.
