And he jumps out from the shadows with his rapier drawn!

So, two questions:
1. The bank let you decide their name for them?!
   This is the first I've heard where the *font* determined

2. Do you happen to know, was it in fact "rediculous
   amounts of money"?

P.S. To me, "Merita" sounds like a Tupperware competitor.
