I have used Identifont to no avail. Thank you, le morte de bea arthur for the identification.

Identifont barfed on it because of the green lines in the background. If you take them out, it'd have no problem identifying it as Bank Gothic.

Er, I mean What the Font barfed on it.

I think Identifont is a huge waste of time. What The Font is surprisingly good given the proper source file. If I'm really stumped I defer to the experts at typophile. What The Font also has a forum where people can answer your questions.
