Forum Post: Chase's lack of compassion

Well, my parents are being foreclosed on. My dad was an attorney who went into practice for himself because he was tired of the exorbitant rates most attorneys charge. When the economy went south, so did his business. They've been able to scrape by until now and would've been fine for a little longer, but my mom was diagnosed with Stage 4 breast cancer three months ago. They were able to get a 3-month moratorium on their mortage, but it expired yesterday. Now Chase has the house in foreclosure and is unwilling to suspend their mortgage payments for two months so they can sell the house, although they were offered this option in a letter. The Customer Service Specialist assigned to their case is unreachable and they say no one else can help them but her. My mom was told she may have a year to live, and now they have to deal with all this!?! What F***S these greedy SOBs are. Chase Bank needs to die, along with all the other big banks. This weekend, everything is getting switched over to a credit union. They (Big Banks) will longer steal from my family.

I think you should go here and tell it to CEO's board directly: http://www.occupytheboardroom.org/

There are plenty of honest banks and credit unions that can replace them if we let the free-market work and stop bailing them out.

Want to hurt chase? Don't get mad, get everyone you can to call chase, visit their website and visiting their locations as a new customer. The more you can get the better. Use their greed, no one calls the police on "new customers". Just 5000 people can site down a website and a calling center easily. No fighting just inquire in their services. Soon they can not tell who a real customer is and their business shuts down and its legal. Lets use our anger. Stay out of jail, work with peace and win! Good luck

" Now Chase has the house in foreclosure and is unwilling to suspend their mortgage payments for two months so they can sell the house, although they were offered this option in a letter."

I wonder which part of the above the "businesses aren't charities" crowd didn't read.

Businesses can be "too big to fail" and get bailed out, but families never are, in capitalism-uber-alles world.

Yea, yea, the banks paid it back, bla bla bla. This family is only asking for some more time so they can get out from under. They're as "entitled" to that as the financial firms were to get bailed out of their self-inflicted mess, if not moreso.

OP, I'm so sorry for your mom's illness and for this additional stress. Stay strong.

I am very sorry for your mother, and your family. However, businesses aren't charities. No one is at fault for your mother's health condition. However, you indicated that your father went into private practice so that he wouldn't have to earn as much money. That's is a fairly odd desire, and kind of shows that the rates might not have been that exorbitant. I suspect his prior firm is still in business providing reliable livings for many families. There is a lot of value in that. Unfortunately, your father's decision to make less money has come home to roost.
