  • § 14103. Advertising; doing business or using name unlawfully

    No person shall advertise or put forth any sign as a bank, banking association, or trust company, or in any way solicit or receive deposits or transact business as a bank, banking association, financial institution or trust company, or use the words "bank," "banking association," or "trust company" or other similar sounding word or name unless it is a financial institution reporting to and under the supervision of the Commissioner or is authorized to conduct such business in this state under federal law, or unless the Commissioner approves the activity or word or name used in writing after giving due consideration for whether the activity, word, or name will confuse or mislead the public as to the nature of the business of the entity. However, this section shall not prevent an individual, as such, from acting in a trust capacity. (Added 1999, No. 153 (Adj. Sess.), § 2, eff. Jan. 1, 2001.)
