“The First National Bank of Bumfuck” means a fictional local bank or any bank located anywhere—in contrast to the “Big Four” of Bank of America, JPMorgan Chase, Citigroup and Wells Fargo. “First Bank of Bumfuck” has been cited in print since at least 2000.

I have been known to tell those folks they can send me a proper payment, or they can wait until my bank statement arrives after I deposit their money order drawn on the Bank of Bumfuk.
