Not to sure that I agree with you that the brokers selling these loans for/with the bank didn’t understand them, although I will agree that most probably didn’t care. They were making money hand over fist,from the front end to the back. Why would the majority of them concern themselves with quality or integrity when they could line their pockets so easily?

However, all documents were emblazoned with the prestigeous bank’s nmae. The actual lender: Indy Mac. When IM went under, much was made of the FDIC’s quick response in reimbursing depositors. However, most scribes neglected to mention that seniors now living in bank-owned homes were not receiving their expected monthly income checks. The proposed soluntion, they were told? Talk to your lawyer.

Just open your email inbox every morning, you will find that 97% (a conservative estimate) are spam and scams.

I am definitely not doubting the capabilities of our seniors. Most have 20/20 visions indeed! But it is good that the CFPA protects those that may be too busy to notice the scammers’ acts.

That makes the oldest boomers turning 65, and the youngest are under 50. Hate to tell you, Rolfe, but we aren’t in the grips of creeping dementia just yet. Baby boomers aren’t synonymous with ‘seniors’ or the ‘elderly’, and using the terms interchangeably just show you up for the young whippersnapper you are 😉
