Cyprused or Cyprussed (to have bank accounts taken)

Cyrpus suffered a banking crisis in 2013; many people with money in the bank had a portion of that taken from them. The term"Cyprussed" has been cited in print since at least March 20, 2013 and “Cyprused” since at least March 21, 2013.

Another term for the Cyprus financial crisis is “Cyprus virus.” A similar financial term is “Corzined.”


Wikipedia: 2012-2013 Cypriot financial crisis
The 2012–2013 Cypriot financial crisis is a major economic crisis in the Republic of Cyprus that involves the exposure of Cypriot banks to the Greek Debt Crisis, the downgrading of the Cypriot economy to junk status by international rating agencies, the consequential inability to refund its state expenses from the international markets and the reluctance of the government to restructure the troubled Cypriot financial sector.

Cyprus: A Moral Dilemma?
The volume of ink and airtime being propelled our way on the country of the week, dissecting and analyzing its past, present, and future, may well catapult the name of a small island at the eastern end of the Mediterranean into a verb.  How long before North Americans get “Cyprussed”?

Stocks continued mostly going up last week. Gold bounced up and down… but held above $1,600. Most people would much rather have stocks than gold.

Of course, this precedent doesn’t bode well for countries like Spain and Italy where, with the first sign of new sovereign debt troubles, there could be a major run on banks by large depositors who fear they too might be “Cyprused” (a new verb that has just entered the lexicon).

Conclusion, when their friends the banksters are in trouble, want to confiscate your bank account, they take you to war to distract you. Don’t pay attention to Cyprus (a blueprint / template for future confiscations)..because you will get “cyprussed”..one day.

I think it’s indicative of a problem when, half-jokingly, the vernacular increasingly being used in the popular media includes: being “Corzined” and “Cyprus’d”. The former meaning having your money stolen from or via the equities market, and the latter being theft directly via the banking system.
