Last time I wrote here, I mentioned how the company was sending us to the poor house and how I wanted to nail them to the wall.
That's right. 33 ^@#&% cents!! Under $80 dollars doesn't even come close to the strong arm tactics we've gotten over the years. Its my mother's house, but we've been at this crap before they had a name for it. (predatory lending).
To back up a bit, like so many here I've watched my mother send in payments 3 weeks early, only to get hit with a late charge. We sent payments in that required a signature, and those bastards still posted it late. I've watched ,my mother's health decline. Its not from old age, she's only 66. From worrying all the time and not seeing an end in sight has taken its toll on her. Her hair is thinning and she has lost a few teeth. I blaim this company for this. She could of been retired by now. My mother's a good person, she doesn't deserve to be treated like ^&%.
Some years ago, Aames sent a letter and said they had the loan now, then some months later, a letter from Fairbanks came in saying they had the loan. After some time with crappy service, Aames sent another letter claiming the loan. A few years before the class action suit, Fairbanks came back in the picture, got sued, changed their name and low and behold there was Aames again.
Now Aames, Fairbanks /SPS all say they are seperate companies. Yeah right. They have the same 800#, sometime same address not to mention the same rusty knife used to stab one of us in the back while the other is held one up by the ankles for more.
A wopping 11.1% is what we have been trying to get out of for the longest. Everyone has "deals" now, but after been raked over the coals by Aames and Fairbanks we're almost back were we started.
Aames, Fairbanks, Select, (tony soprano?)...suck royal eggs. From where I stand, the government doesn't care about the little people. If they did,they would of thrown the crooks in jail, put those rude customer service reps on the unemployment line, bulldozed their buildings and given my mother a check to make up for what they've put her through, instead of the slap in the face and getting done with out a kiss, for 33 cents.
