Comments on: What happened at Chase’s credit-card collections arm? http://blogs.reuters.com/felix-salmon/2012/01/11/what-happened-at-chases-credit-card-collections-arm/ A slice of lime in the soda Sun, 26 Oct 2014 19:05:02 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: atxgrl http://blogs.reuters.com/felix-salmon/2012/01/11/what-happened-at-chases-credit-card-collections-arm/comment-page-1/#comment-35319 Wed, 25 Jan 2012 16:07:03 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/felix-salmon/?p=11818#comment-35319 The reason Chase lost on collections is because of it’s failure to work with the American people that lost income and jobs because of mortgage schemes. To add to that they burdened the people with double and triple payments. Then, they refuse to take any less or provide any payoff assistance! I have heard so many people say that the only company that would not allow them to make a lesser payment until they found work was Chase. So they could not pay off their owed debt. So I have no sympathy with a company like that!

Banks keep bad debts on the books generally as long as they are allowed to charge late penalties and max interest. After unsecured loans go non-accrual banks are looking to make one quick judgement on if the customer is willing and able to pay something back directly, if that looks unlikely they want to sell the bad debt to the highest bidder at dimes on the dollar and write off the difference.
