Bad First Savings Mortgage Corp
Posted by on
MCLEAN, VIRGINIA -- On April 24, 2007 a fire destroyed my house at 43657 Pierpoint Terrace, Leesburrg, VA.. The attached property owned by First Savings Mortgage Corp. also burned. The damage to both units was extensive. For the next 4 months I begged, pleaded and conjoled the bank to begin restoration. The bank carried no property insurance for this location. The Lansdowne home owners association by laws & covenants require that restoration begins within 90 days. While I began demolition and restoration within 90 days, the bank did not begin until Nov. 2nd....192 days later. This delay caused further damage due to the extended time of exposure to the elements and my home had to be completely demolished. Also, due to their delay, I had to install their portion of the common fire wall so I could proceed with renovations. This cost my an additional $8,700.00 that was paid by me on Dec. 26th. Thus far, as required by the by-laws, First Savings Mortgage has refused to reimburse me. This is not a reputable bank. I m suing them for the initial amount of the replacement wall + 5.5% interest and attorney fees. We will go to court in late June and July and we will prevail.

However, with their behavior in mind, I would surely and seriously rethink doing any business with them. They are not a good corporation. We now hope to be in our house by the end of May, no thanks to them. The rebuild process should have taken 8 months, not 13!

Credit Nightmare
Posted by on
CHICAGO, ILLINOIS -- I took this credit card offer three years ago...I had borderline bad credit and the offer seemed reasonable so, regardless of some over-the-top fees I thought this was an opportunity to upgrade my credit.

Now, I've had this card for three years...paid MUCH more than my minimum payment on-time every month and been, more or less perfect.

Since then I've requested a credit increase three times (by credit limit is a whopping $300) and in every case they denied me saying my balance has been over limit twice. Now, I've never once charged over the limit...in fact, it's impossible to do so. Each time it's been them putting their $50 annual fee onto my card, and then whacking me with a $30 over the limit fee that's put me over the limit). Still I've dealt with them.

So, this week I made a mistake and forgot to drop my payment in the mail. As of today it's about 48 hours late. Since then they have called my home 27 times!!!! Called my work 15! For a $30 payment when I've never been late? Are you kidding me?

I've cut the card in half and told them to go to hell. Worst credit company ever.

Oh yeah, and Bank of Bubba doesn't even have a company website. VERY impressive.

If you have bad credit and you want to improve your credit situation, then it's best to keep it simple.

If your credit card limit was $300. then why would you ever charge near the limit and jeopardize your chances of improving your credit situation?

You started out with bad credit and you couldn't fix it with a new credit card so you blame the credit card company.

I think it's time to take a new approach and look at yourself and your spending habits before you blame another credit card company.

TLA is right, the best option to rebuild your credit rating would have been to use this credit card for paying a small monthly bill, like your internet bill, then paying it in full immediately, well before the due date. Rebuilding credit takes time and a lot of self discipline.

While I agree with the others I would strongly recommend that you get it fixed and then never use credit again unless it is an emergency.

OR:

If you have bad credit and you want to improve your credit situation, then it's best to keep it simple GET AWAY FROM CREDIT, you really don’t need it and if you haven’t figured that out by now then you are doomed to a life of DEBT!

CC Companies are un-regulated and out of control.

lol. I think you deserve the phone calls as you were over your limit and late. Why did you tell them to go to hell ? It was your fault.
