Well DOERs, John Stumpf, CEO of Wells Fargo, is a schmuck.
CEO Stumpf knew (because DOERs told him) that the only reason grandma Patricia Martin faced foreclosure was because a Wells Fargo employee–Stumpf’s employee–lied to her daughter about late fees, and then rejected her for the loan modification it told her to apply for. Why did Wells reject Grandma Martin’s modification application? Well, given the facts, I see two possibilities. Stumpf’s company is incredibly incompetent or deadly sin-level greedy. Either way Stumpf’s Wells Fargo is vicious.
Vicious, Yes. Also Incompetent and/or Greedy. Continue reading “Wells Fargo Servicer-Driven Foreclosure: Is Stumpfs Company Vicious and Incompetent or Vicious and Greedy?”

Okay, so here’s a quick recap, in case you’re coming in late, followed by an update that demonstrates very clearly why I say that Wells Fargo Bank and the law firm, Anglin, Flewelling, Rasmussen, Campbell & Trytten LLP… cannot be trusted.
First the Short Recap…
Patricia Martin, age 65, having lived in her home for 44 years, had major back surgery, so she had to send her daughter into the bank to make two payments. There were late fees of about $80 a month, but the person at Wells Fargo said they could be paid later, and accepted the check for the two payments.
The following month, October, Patricia’s home heating system required major repairs, so the next time she was able to make her mortgage payment was the following month, November. But, when she tried to make the payment, the bank said that she hadn’t made the September payment, and in fact, she was in default, and had to come up with $4829.96 by November 30th, or the bank would foreclose.

JP Morgan Chase and McCarthy & Holthus – Destroying America, One House at a Time

Homeowner Suffers Horrific Injustice at the Hands of JPMorgan Chase
For over two years I’ve had a front row seat for the foreclosure crisis, the by-product of our government’s complete mishandling of the worst economic downturn in seventy years.
During that time I’ve been exposed to some pretty horrific things… people living in their cars with a child sleeping in the trunk… the eviction of an 89 year-old couple… I’ve gotten to know what that fear sounds like and feels like… the fear of losing one’s home while the country talks about you as being nothing more than an “irresponsible borrower,” someone who never should have bought your home in the first place, even though you may have lived in it for 30 years.
What I saw this past week, however, was something new for me… I’d heard of things like this happening before, written about them, even. But, I had never seen anything like it, up close and personal.
As a warning… this story is not for the squeamish. If you’re pregnant, or have heart disease, or just want to go on pretending that your country is still a place of which you’re proud… it’s better that you click off now… because this one isn’t going to make you laugh.
