Steal by fraud how much?

Steal by fraud how much? Trillions, Billions!  Get fined Millions and no one goes to jail. Who receives the fine money? The people and business that were cheated or government or Federal Reserve? If the fine goes to the Federal Reserve they give it right back to the banks in bailouts and low interest rates. Libor has been exposed but my loan rate has not changed. How much did Diamond get when he left? Where will he work next? Appointed to the Federal Reserve or to the Office of Finance or other type position? Business as usual, no change.
