One Sexy Way to Save Money on Gas.
With gas well over $4.00 a gallon – have been wondering how to save money on gas? At Banking Bad, we usually alert you to companies that seem to be trying to rip you off, but we also like to tell you when we find good companies and great ideas on saving money. We certainly found a good company and a way to save money everyday you drive.
Our company needed to lease a new car and we decided saving money on gas was a top priority. First, we looked at the electric-only Tesla model S, but it was a bit out of our price range, but every member of the crew still wants one. We also sometimes haul people and equipment long distance, and we wanted to have gas power as an option since full electric vehicle distance still has room for improvement.

Bank of America Missing Loan Modification Documents
This should be simple… Woman abused for years by Bank of America. Since 2009 BOA has been saying they don’t have her loan documents, telling her things such as “pay your mortgage late” to get a HAMP refinance, claims the woman, Adriane P. (See photos where she sent us proof she has been applying over and over since 2009.) This #BankingBad tactic ultimately triggered a critical mass of late fees, penalties, etc. All of this horrific behavior leads to Bank of America foreclosing and trying to kick the woman out of her home.

Bank of America Loan Modification Scam
“Bank of America also gave employees gift cards to retail stores like Target or Bed Bath & Beyond as rewards for placing accounts into foreclosure,” declared former Bank of America employee Simone Gordon, under penalty of perjury, in recently filed court documents. $500 bonuses to employees who could foreclose on 10 customers in one month as opposed to bonuses to help families stay in their homes: does this sound like a way to treat customers to you? Well, if the sworn testimony from a federal case filed in Massachusetts by six former bank employees is true, then this is one of the ways Bank of America incentivized a diabolical plot to steal millions of homes from families across America while reaping vast profits through their alleged lies and devastating trail of destruction.

April 15, 2013 in Bankruptcy Attorney, Chapter 13, Chapter 7 Bankruptcy
Can Bankruptcy Stop Foreclosure? Here at Banking Bad we get quite a few messages about ways people work to save their property. We do not give out legal advice, but are aware that a Chapter 13 bankruptcy can allow individuals to save their homes by restructuring their debt into a 3-year or 5-year payment plan. “Filing a Chapter 13 bankruptcy stops foreclosure proceedings, giving the homeowner a chance to save their home. Chapter 7 can possibly save a home by wiping out other debts, allowing the homeowner to focus on the home,” say San Diego bankruptcy attorney Craig Trenton. Read the rest of this entry →

Banking Bad – Episode 3 -BOA
The Bank of America home loan nightmare continues in “Banking Bad” – Episode 3. This episode of the Banking Bad series featuring musician, Dave Nichols who’s latest single “I Told You So,” features members of Eminem’s Detroit crew D12. Dave received a very bad loan on a small home purchase through Country Wide Home Loans, who was then purchased by Bank of America.Dave was beginning to live the American dream with his wife and very young son when his interest rate and monthly payment shot up prematurely in months as apposed to years as his home loan contract stated. This continued “error” caused an extreme hardship for his small family, and after 2 years of trying to get Bank of America to correct this inaccuracy, all Dave had to show for it was an even higher interest rate, many penalties, and fees added onto the bogus interest amount. Ultimately this fiasco led to a bankruptcy and a financially strained marriage that ended in divorce. Comment here. Read the rest of this entry →

Shadow REO? Are up to 90% of the homes that are available for sale being hidden? We have been hearing more and more about “Shadow REO.”
Shadow REO: Big Banks Holding Back 90% of Home Inventory?
REO stands for “a class of property owned by a lender, typically a bank, government agency, or government loan insurer, after an unsuccessful sale at a foreclosure auction.”  The reason for all of the buzz is that there appears to be a large portion of this real estate inventory being purposely held back from the national real estate marketplace, in order to intentionally keep it off of the market, but why…?
