    Wachovia sold my loan to someone else, who sold it to someone else, who sold it to wells fargo, who then bought wells fargo. lol...., We pay it off this year. 15 yr fixed 4%

    Well, if we want to go by the group of demands Catawba keeps putting out there as a great representation of what the Occupy movement is about...how about reinvestigating the 9/11 attacks?

    referring to an online poll to decide what OWS's goals are, is very silly.

    no, the bank doesn't require your approval.

    great point: if Bank of America loans you a mortgage, but then sells off this loan for 10,000 little pieces all over the world, what gives BoA the right to foreclose on your home if you can't pay the loan?
