FDIC – Indymac – OneWest Reimbursement

At the beginning of Dec, 09, I wrote an article detailing the “Sweetheart buy viagra pill Deal” that the FDIC gave to OneWest Bank to buy the assets on Indymac.

But, the Government and President Obama do not want you to do that. President Obama has publically stated that the lenders will work with you to do a good loan modification. He has also stated you should not hire a person to work on your behalf because lenders will do a modification for free. Yet, there are now stories in all 50 states where lenders are charging fees for loan modifications.
