Before it became Wachovia it was First Union. Those initials were appropriate because they always seemed to have that attitude whenever we dealt with them.

One other poster recommended BOA. I've found them difficult and inconvient to deal with. Have had them slap fees on me by mistake.

Fifth Third Bank was the only major bank in the area to receive four stars for
"safe and sound" status. I'll have to check them out.

You mean this Fifth Third Bank Mortgage Assistance | Fifth Third wants to assist you in handling your loan obligations and credit concerns in a more proactive manner (http://tinyurl.com/2eapgpm - broken link)
  • Refinance up to 125% loan-to-value ratio. For instance, if your home is worth $100,000 and your current mortgage exceeds that amount, under this program you may be able to refinance your mortgage up to $125,000
  • No appraisal required on some single-family homes
  • No minimum credit score
  • No employment, income or asset verification required
No appraisal? No min credit score? And you don't even have to be employed to refi for more than your home is worth in 2010? It sounds like they already have your money. I wonder if they'll give some of it to me.

^ Which sounds like the alter-ego of Wells Fargo....not a bad thing. They must be doing something right if they're rated "fiscally sound" versus the other major banks.

That postcrash policy is the very same precrash policy which produced the crash. Fifth third bank had received over $3,000,000,000 of your TARP money because of the crash which was produced by such policies. Give me $3 billion and I'll be fiscally sound too. Doing something right? We must have differing views on skeevy.
