    I started my journey with the loan modification process with WAMU who became JP Morgan and Chase last May 2009. I was pre qualified to be on a trial period last October-Nov-Dec 2009. I paid 3 months consecutive the trial amount and was following up religiously every week if they needed additional docs perhaps, any status of the permannet modification etc... it became a routine -- to call loss & mitt dept to check in 2x a week.

    Finally, I was approved for permanent modification as per the underwriter who called me on Jan 13, 2010 – he said it’s a coop and numbers had to be re-worked and blah blah – I will get final docs from Fedex once QA is done and whatever… from Jan till yesterday – I was calling every week, once sometimes 2x a week for follow up on the final docs – no word – pending from dept who puts together stuff but each time I call – I hear the word – it’s been approved, many times I make the rep repeat the numbers and I was given amount + term + interest rate, but each one advised – still wait for final docs…. Yesterday I called and there’s a new info – seems like it was denied from the Obama Plan – due to they think it’s a coop but not sure the rep said – however, it seems like it’ll be reviewed for an in house program – so pending again. I tried to call again after 10 min and got someone who completely ruined my day and said from his review it seems like all programs have been considered and there are no other options and I have to pay now for months I was behind… he even said there will be no letter explaining that all programs have been considered – it’ll just be foreclosure notice --- what a complete moron! I was so mad and disgusted with the whole program and how in the world I was deemed eligible – numbers were run and I got the new payment and all that good stuff info – but the final docs never came and instead I was informed over the phone it was denied – and that a letter should come shortly!
    <?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:eek:ffice:eek:ffice" /><o:p> </o:p>
    Anyway – today I called the office of Jamie Dimon of JP Morgan and Chase Bank. Jamie Dimon, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of JPMorgan Chase<o:p></o:p>
    <o:p> </o:p>
    <o:p></o:p>I spoke to someone who works for him and her name is Gloria - she said she will open a case for me so the case can be escalated at its highest level. We’ll see what happens next. I want to sue them if I can and only if I had the money but I know it’s fighting a losing battle.

    I don't understand if they are really willing to help or not? I have informed them that I am going to do everything to be able to keep my home, please just work with me because my financial situation has changed and I am not able to make ends meet but I have the ability to pay! I have a job and for 3 years I have paid on time without fail!!! I need assistance and I have given all docs, numbers, everything they have asked from me to prove that I need my mortgage modified -- even if its only for 5 years! anything can help -- just please help! but the process makes me more stressed and sad because the banks and the whole red tape-behind the scene-fine prints that we all do not know about will be presented to you in the end after a very long time of being hopeful that help is on its way.....

    I want to go to the media and tell my story and perhaps inform people about this whole "help the homeowner's not to lose their home" too good to be true program. anyone care to join me?

    Listen - if I cannot really afford this home, I will not subject myself and my family through this whole humiliation of seeking help this way- almost begging the bank to listen to me.. and also I will not have to go through this stress -- I will just give up the house/coop -- but I know I havethe capability to pay - I just need temporary assistance while working hard to improve our financial situation... what is wrong with that? I pay taxes, I work hard, I just need help!!!!:mad:

    Welcome and thank you for joining!

    I'm sorry to hear the run around you have went through. They deny people left and right for a permanent modification for this program, did they give you a reason why you were denied? That was a good idea contacting Dimon's office and I hope they can get your case back on track. If you do not know why you were turned down try to find out right away!

    Hello -- this is the letter I got in the mail and God knows what this NPV stuff is all about....

    Dear Mortgagor(s):​
    Chase Home Finance LLC ("Chase") is writing in response to your recent request regarding a loan modification on the
    above-referenced account. After researching your account, we have determined that you do not qualify for a modification
    through the Making Home Affordable ("MHA’) modification program at this time; however, we are happy to tell you that
    you may be eligibIe for other modification programs offered by Chase. You will be hearing from us regarding the other
    programs we have availabie for you very soon.
    Federal guidelines require lenders to disclose why you did not qualify for the MHA program. You have been deemed
    ineligible for the MHA program for the following reason(s):
    The Home Affordable Modification Program requires a calculation of the Net Present Value (NPV) of a modification
    using a formula developed by the Deparlment of the Treasury. The NPV calculation requires us to input certain financial
    information about your income and your Loan including the factors listed below. When combined ~vith other dam in the
    Treasury model, these inputs esfimaie the cash flow the investor (owner) of your Loan is likely to receive if the Loan is
    modified and the investor’s cash flow if the Loan is not modified. Based on the NPV results, the owner of yanr Loan has
    not approved a modification.
    If we receive a request from you within thirty (30) calendar days from the date of this letter, we will provide you with the
    date the NPV calculation was completed and the input values noted below. If, within thirty (30) calendar days of receiving
    this information you provide us with evidence that any of these input values are inaccurate, and those inaccuracies are
    material, for example a significant difference in your gross monthly income or an inaccurate zqz code, we will conduct a
    new NPV evaluation. While there is no guurantee that a new NPV evaluation will result in the owner of your Loan
    approving a modificafior~ we want to ensure that the NPV evaluation is based on accurate information.
    Available NPV Inputs:
    A. Unpaid balance on the original Loan as of the date we reviewed your Loan​

    * Forgiveness of debt may have federal tax consequences. Consult with a tax professional.
    As indicated in your trial plan documentation, if your existing Loan did not include escrows, Chase started to review your
    property tax and insurance obligations in order to establish an escrow account. As a result, we may have paid items on
    your behalf. In that case, if any escrow items were paid during the trial period, your mortgage payment will be adjusted to
    include an amount necessary to repay those funds over a sixty (60) mon~th re-payment period. If your account was not
    escrowed prior to the trial period, your account will remain non-escrowed, and you will be responsible for any past due
    tax or insurance obligations and all items going forward. If yun~ account was previously escrowed, your escrow account
    will remain in effect. Chase reserves the right in the future to require an escrow on your account if you fail to pay the tax
    and!or insurance obligations under the terms of your mortgage.

    When this first modification hell started - it was not based on your credit - just gross income - insurance/taxes/homeowners - search newspapers online - you should be able to locate one probably back in May/June 2009 -
    How do you like that the banks new mod programs only being offered to responsible homeowners - responsible in never missing a payment - not people like us who were misled into this hell - so my prediction - only mods offered will be to what they now feel are responsible people - THANKS CHASE - loss of income does not make a person irresponsible - in fact - sticking around so long and being dragged thru this mess proves that -
    OH WELL -

    Hi I too went through the hoop jumping and did everything required. Today my house was sold, clearly in error. I want to find a pro bono attorney but I am not sure how much fight I have left. I was a legal sec for many years, do you think any of my former bosses could help or guide me to the right direction - HELL NO. They are rich and they do not want to hear of the "ugly" things. I was so mislead by Chase Bank.

    Our house was underwater too, and they adjusted the ARM just about the time I was having a serious job issue with my employer. The loan went from $1460 per month to over $1800 a month, and we were struggling to keep up. I emptied out my 401K to pay it over the next couple of months while we sorted things out and tried to get caught up. We paid a double payment at one point when they demanded it, and the next month they said we were STILL two months behind - which was BS. But they still wanted it, and we were over a barrel. We had enough to make ONE payment, and they said they would accept that. I was on the phone with this guy at Chase about to give him the authorization to take it out of my joint account with my daughter, when he put me on hold. My daughter was on the other line with THE SAME GUY, unbeknownst to me. He thought he had put her on hold too. He was trying to get HER to agree to pay a single payment as well. She overheard him speaking to a co-worker at the bank, and laughing, "I've got both of them on the phone here... I'm gonna get 2 payments out of them." If he had hit the hold button, she wouldn't have heard that scum bag. When he got back on the phone with her, she totally let him have it!!

    After months of filling out paperwork and going through all the hoops to get the modification done, we were approved for the mod. They sent out the paperwork for it, and I looked it over. It was very thin on help. The payments would reduce to $1490 for 6 months, then they would be adjusted back up to $1800-$1900 by the end of a year. And they tacked another $2400 on to the end of the loan as well. It was NO help at all. I told my family to pack up. We aren't staying here anymore. If they want it that bad, they can have this house. We walked away. Chase is one of the biggest crooks on the block.
