Lost my home due directly to illegal acts of the Wells Fargo Home Mortgage Banking Institution. Late for a mortgage, called, tried to sell the home for the debt only but of course not due to the loss of value nationwide. Finally after multiple of calls to the 'maze' of individuals in the banking institution a particular party naming self as Camica says just pay us a set up fee of 2500.00 and we will be able to modify your loan which then made the payments 2392.00 per month. So, we immediately did so. Then they switch it to a forebearance expecting us to pay them 12,457.00 after they received the funds. Also, a letter we received stated explicitly that we would be refunded the money if we were not accepted.
Guess what this is now over a year ago and we never received the funds back, they took us into foreclosure and we are now out. We took this to the FDIC, OTS and the WA State Attorney Generals office and even the Better Business Bureau of the home state of the banking institution to no avail other than a lip service postage form letter. I must add though here the WA State Attorney's Offices were quite helpful with some confidential advice contrary to all of the other governmental offices that did nothing and are probably being paid by WF under the table to do nothing.
Yes, in error for a financial struggle but were caught up in all areas except this nonsense with the WF folks and were prepared to be caught up with them also. We had a combined income of over 10,000.00 per month at the time and now all lost. Then we turned all of our paperwork over to a nationwide financial audit team with the possibility to investigate or at least a direction of protection from such and find that the bank, the closing folks and all were guilty of 24 violations relative to RESPA, bait and switch, loan closures, illegal manipulation of the interest rates from our offer through closing of the home plus, of course, the interest rate increase that was not the '6.5 but ended more after all is done.
The audit team suggested a law suit however we did not have the expected findings of having to put out over 7000.00 up front to a law firm (called on many and that was the average amount stated) due to the fact they would be doing battle with a bank that has large amounts of funds from depositors to delay any action and 'basically try to wear us out' with years of litigation expectations. So, we end up loosing our home and moving out of state, loosing employment due to this and now we must spend our energy presently to 'catch up' but will definitely keep all records for a potential class action law suit if this becomes a viable entity down the road - and we surely hope so. For, these people have not only ruined us but have heart us physically from it all too.
Stimulus? Where in the world is our government when the people need them for protection from the real enemy - the predators that are ruining this great nation!!!! Stimulus? For who, those who have never had a home before with a loan and have never had a late payment and what? Get a life government folks and go get a real job for once that expects real results and come back with that kind of nonsense!
'Shut down WF' and the likes of them!
