The Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. said Friday that it shuttered Bank of Eastern Shore, in Cambridge, Md., as well as HarVest Bank of Maryland, in Gaithersburg.
Regulators also closed Inter Savings Bank in Maple Grove, Minn., Plantation Federal Bank in Pawleys Island, S.C., and Palm Desert National Bank in Palm Desert, Calif.
