Provident refunded the $400 appraisal fee

We have not heard from Provident or Steve Atwood and we were discussing filing the complaint with regulators and a  lawsuit last week.

So my clients sure were surprised to receive a $400 check from Provident on Friday.  Apparently my fax was received and Mr. Atwood just doesn’t have anything to say to me.

Provident refunded the appraisal fee:

However, they didn’t pay MY fee and we’ll definitely submit the complaints to the FDIC and OTS.

I just checked the FNMA rates and they’re now 1/2% higher than the lowest rate over the last 6 weeks.

It is SO stressful to have to switch lenders and I’m sure glad we’re scheduled to close tomorrow and got a good rate.

The banks are making a KILLING with these bait and switch tactics.

It is very discouraging to see a SAVINGS bank like Provident engage in such deceptive practices.

People talk about moving deposits to community and local banks from the evil national banks, Chase, BofA, Citi, Wells Fargo, Capital One … There seems to be no difference — they’re ALL run by crooks?

Dog eats dog, the survival of the fittest.

Honest working people are nothing but prey for the sharks.

And that’s what we call a “civilized” and “first world” country?
