Not So Funny at Countrywide

Sometimes I'm funny, and sometimes I just THINK I'm funny. Your responses to the blog I posted Friday, while camping outside Countrywide Headquarters:

Steve K:"I have to tell you that my impression is that when you wrote this you thought it was clever. Sorry but it is simply not clever, interesting or funny. So no one answered the door bell. Does that make it a cause for you to pout that you were snubbed? I am not a Countrywide fan at all but to think that you rose to your position of journalistic accomplishment and would submit a story that only leaves a reaction of - What??? What?? seems to be a waste of talent and time."

DeAnna C:"I'm glad you find it funny. Your free lunch is more than we, VICTIMS, in this whole shady, thieving, liars in the mortgage industry our offering us with the Ameriquest Class Action Settlement with the AG! Thank you for your crack house like reporting. That's more than I get to do! As a victim there is nothing funny about it. It is doom and gloom for us, why not talk to us."

Eric K:"I just returned from Spain and in the past few days I have received 3 calls from Countrywide. I have had a few loans with CW in the past few years and have never received any calls...

The 3 calls:

1. To make sure that I know that my mortgage payment had to be paid before the 15th on August. 8/8

2. Same as above but one day later. 8/9

3. A call today saying that today 8/10/07 they received my direct deposit payment due on the 15th and reminding me about the next months payment and due date.

I spoke to the gentleman today @ CW and he told me that CW's investors are requiring CW to call all of it's customers and that there are a lot of people that have not paid or may not be able to pay.

You may want to ask the CEO about this calling.

Speaking from past experience CW has been one of the most aggressive lenders and I believe that there still is alot of potential downside with CFC."

Thomas K:"ME LIKE JANE. YOU REALLY ARE A GREAT REPORTER JANE. I LIKE HOW YOU MAKE STUFF INTERESTINGLY FUN. ( EVEN IN A WET CORN ROW) YOU ALWAYS RATE A FREE LUNCH. THE HUGE AMOUNT OF BULL FROM WALL STREET AND WASHINGTON LEADS THIS CITIZEN TO WONDER 'HOW MUCH LUNCH WILL COST IN THE FUTURE?'"
