Those who have followed me here at OS already know that in late 2008 following the Bush bank bail out (the last Repub rip-off as they exited Capital Hill), I became an unwilling customer of Bank of America.
Unwilling, yes... wasn't my doing. BoA took over the failed criminal enterprise known as Countrywide, therefore becoming my mortgage "service provider."
The frozen and stagnant economy brought on by the banksters and their partners on the hill made life pretty tough for me, a self-employed home improvement contractor. Those few that still had money to spend on my services were hoarding.
Who could blame them? 401k's lost value or disappeared altogether. Massive layoffs and business failures. People without jobs can't pay mortgages; the same banks that caused the crisis fired up the foreclosure machine...
Long story short, I too lost my home of 12 1/2 years, after being told by BoA that my mortgage modification was approved.
Yes, they lied. Go figure!
Like I said, if you have followed me, you already know my story in detail. I blog everything!
Forward to this last Saturday: I noticed an ad on the right side of my facebook page...
... then, hastily, as I didn't have much time, wrote this blog, asking my OS friends to leave comments at the BoA sponsored facebook page (it didn't take but an hour from the time I started leaving comments before they banned my contributions, and I was angry).
Sunday morning, I had an OS private mail from Erik Sherman of CBS News 'Moneywatch.'
Apparently my OS post, which had been shared to facebook by Linnnnnnnnnn, was seen there by Erik who is her friend going all the way back to High School (that's a long time... HI LINNNNN!).
