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.
Put over 14k in flagstar bank. Lost my job so put this money in my account for bills and the such. I placed bounce protection on this account. Luckily, I found a job. 2 days before I was to receive my first check my new job my acct was almost empty from the work stoppage. I used the bounce protection for 60 dollars knowing I had a check coming in another day. I called to pay the $60.00 the day I received my check. (2)days later. Flagstar charged $618.00 for the $60.00 I used.
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.
