Wells Fargo says sorry again after error cost more people their homes than first thought

Source: Charlotte Observer



.

In a new disclosure, San Francisco-based Wells said an expanded review found that approximately 870 customers who were going through foreclosure were incorrectly denied or not offered loan modifications or repayment plans that would have made their mortgages more affordable. As a result, about 545 of those customers lost their homes, Wells said in a securities filing.

A spokesman for the bank, which has a large presence in Charlotte, said the company apologizes for the mistake.

Also last month, some Democrats on the Senate Banking Committee wrote in a letter that Wells’ CEO Tim Sloan and Chairwoman Betsy Duke should be made to testify before Congress following “rampant consumer abuses” revealed over the past year.

The request was made to committee Chairman Mike Crapo, of Idaho. A committee spokeswoman said Monday that no hearing has been scheduled.

We all know Wells Fargo and other Banks have wronged many more than 400 homeowners.

4. "Sorry, you lost your home"

is not enough. At least they are working on financial solutions as well. But 8 mliion for such an amount of houses seems very low even if you only take a percentage of the value of a house. I wonder whether they did proft from these mistakes. I'd bet that a mistake that a bank makes that is to their advantage isn't a coincidence and will get repeated until they get caught.

6. It is far bigger than $8 million. These are the ones Wells Fargo got caught on

 

As for me (I know it sounds preposterous) - they owe my eToys company (stolen by Bain/ Romney) - $100 million.

The gravity & gravamen of depravity at Wells Fargo, runs deeper than most could possibly fathom.

20. Not to mention those of us caught up in it..

We were literally three months ahead on our mortgage and called about doing a refi as our lives/income had changed. They quoted shitty rates, we declined the new offer and somehow that triggered a foreclosure process. Several thousand people were hit, it was a computer glitch/program error. When we got served papers, I called and they had no record that they had foreclosed on us. Guy didn’t believe me that I had papers in my hand and a court date cause he showed I was more than current. Took months to figure out. It was finally dismissed but that filing will be on my credit report for five more years.

Oh...And the lawsuit settlement? We got $300. My legal fees were three times that. 🙄

23. That paltry compensation was more criminal than Wells Fargo, who

should have been fined to beggary. They probably only exist because they were 'bailed out' by Joe and Jane Public. Or perhaps it was laundering drug money. Or both.

28. Wells Fargo should be FORCED to make those families 'whole again' .

Not just a new home, "make whole again" pay damages to cover & compensate for all the hell that goes along with a foreclosure.


In case people don't realize bank mortgage contract has a lot of reasons they can start foreclosure.

Like late twice, not having property insurance coverage, not paying yearly property tax on time, among many other things.
