downstairs: Just as a technical point... isn't the process just the process?
Lando Lincoln: "Fark you, pay me."Like the mafia, but legal.
vudukungfu: These are the assholes that foreclosed on a home that had no mortgage and destroyed the personal belongings of the old folks that built the place.Too big to jail?
GAT_00: Yes, it is a massive corporation.
vpb: vudukungfu: These are the assholes that foreclosed on a home that had no mortgage and destroyed the personal belongings of the old folks that built the place.Too big to jail?Yep. I can't figure which one you mean though. They have farked over a lot of people illegally.LinkLinkLink
FlashHarry: as somebody who just closed on his wells fargo refi on tuesday, i'm getting a kick, etc.
BarkingUnicorn: The best part: WF went back and did it again a few days later. Same mistake, the contractor went to the wrong address.
Lumpmoose: I've heard lots of stories about banks losing payments, having computer errors and generally not working with customers AT ALL to work through a mortgage payment plan. I don't see any evidence of that here. If a customer simply doesn't pay--regardless of other circumstances--what is the bank supposed to do? That's the point of a social safety net: make sure these people have health care and don't starve.Her parents have offered for her to come home to New Jersey, but Cindi said a move out of state might disrupt her North Carolina disability benefits, so for now she has to stay here in the Tarheel State.Of course, the same people using government money as an excuse to avoid necessary life changes doesn't exactly prove my point.This all seems to be indicative of a larger problem of too many people owning homes, the middle class collapsing and people forgetting how to save and budget. The banks are scum plenty of times but I can't blame them every time. Placing an overabundance of moral expectations on them is pointless. FORCE THEM to meet minimum expectations via government regulation, not cheesy news reports.
FlashHarry: GAT_00: Yes, it is a massive corporation.corporations are people, my friend.
BoxOfBees: Move along, folks, nothing to see here. Wells Fargo obviously started foreclosure to push the issue with charitable organizations. Why let people live there for free (and take a loss) when a charity or non-profit will pay the money for them?
downstairs: Is it routine for a mortgage company to decide on a case-by-case basis to foreclose or not? Aren't there set rules for it in your contract? I mean, this is sad. And by no means am I saying "tough, pay your bills or get kicked out." I'm all for compassion. Just as a technical point... isn't the process just the process?
CommieTaoist: Uh, they never said that subby (and NewsChannel 36), all they said was that the home wasn't yet in foreclosure at the time the email was sent, not that they would never foreclose upon it. Reporter, and subby, need to learn how to read.
srhp29: Reading comprehension FTW...Nowhere in what they printed of Wells Fargo's letter did it say they would never foreclose.
Der Poopflinger: if you borrow money it is complete understandable for the people that loaned you that money to want to get paid back, further more it's not unreasonable not matter what your personal situation is for those people to collect on that money and also foreclose on your home, because she has cancer doesn't exempt her from her mortgage or the agreement she signed with the bank
