I called Washington Mutual (mortgage company (now owned by JP Morgan Chase), also the bank, Bailed Out by the government. The date was July 13th, 2009. I had spoken to Angela of Customer Service. What had happened was that I grabbed the wrong check book to pay my July 1, 2009 mortgage payment. I am in between banks, as I have transferred my SSDI monthly check to another bank. I wanted to pay it early, as I am in review of a loan modification, under the new President OBama's Helping Families Save Their Homes Act. I told her that, as I had received a statement that I got a $25.00 "Other" fee on my mortgage payment. I explained to her that it was an honest mistake and she said that she would waive the fee, but it wasn't on the system, yet. So I called the next day (July 14th, 2009) and talked to another Angela of Customer Service and explained what happened, asked about the waive of the $25.00 fee and who I spoke to. She told me that I had a fee waived last May of 2008. I told her I have never had a fee waived! I always pay my bills on time! Especially my mortgage, as I am in a modification mode. She looks at a screen and I have all my statements! I have got in touch with the Federal Trades Commission and the Better Business Bureau. Who are they to dictate what I did or didn't do, when I have the proof right in front of my eyes.
Oh goodness! Don't make an innocent mistake and write out a check from the wrong bank, as you will get punished and humiliated, to boot! Plus, being called a liar doesn't settle to well with me. It just adds fuel to the fire!
