Customer service is awful

Refinanced online and they sold my loan to Flagstar. I have made two payment errors and have needed to call Customer Service . The first was I doubled paid my mortgage, and the second was they adjusted down my payment and I misread the month so I sent the reduced payment one month early. They called me and told me I underpaid my $1950 mortgage by $40 and they were accessing me a $79 late fee. I told them I was a good customer and had over paid every month and I was early every month. And would they please give me a courtesy "by". They would get back to me. Never did. So in both cases I called Customer Service and was hung up on by their automated 24 hour line. Hung up on. The first time I had to punch in the line for delinquent payees just to get a human. The first time I waited 1/2 hour on hold. And like I said today I got disconnected 3 times by their phone system. If you can possibly not deal with these clowns then don't . Oh how I wish I had stayed with Chase.

What groups oversee banks like this?

With the banking industry permitting a bank like this to continue to do business with the list of reviews posted for this bank alone, without triggered oversight, is an indictment to the regulatory institutions that put bandages on problems after they've failed. Consider how many others haven't bothered to post, yet experience the same scams. There is no confidence in companies that are allowed to continue to operate like this one. They're in the business of being a casino taking in money from home loans in the millions with profits

with out being penalized. How long will it take them to penalize you if you don't do the procedures they dictate?

Flagstar screwed us.

Like many people, a year or so ago our family experienced a decrease in income. Thank goodness we had paid our mortgage on time for 9 years. So, under the fabulous HARP program - designed to help homeowners in stress to keep their homes - Flagstar began the refinance process with us. THEY LED US ON FOR MONTHS, knowing we desperately wanted to keep our home. Basically they would tell us they had everything ready, a low interest rate and a clear to close, but then they would find an excuse to drag it out another month, MONTH AFTER MONTH AFTER MONTH AFTER MONTH. After riding this emotional roller coaster ride, they finally bled us out, and we had no other option than to let the house go. This is a very DISHONEST bank, I highly recommend you steer clear of them.
