They bought a real shady subprime company and I am not surprised they are running into a few problems.
Actrually they bought Providian but the truly subprime accounts were sold off. This is not just an isse with WaMu. This is a perfect example of trickle down. Evidenced by the sudden ramp up of Amex F/Rs, and AA across the board.I think its sad. They gave me a really good chance when hardly anyone else would and have been good to me. Too bad many others it seems did not return the favor.... Don't get me started...lol!!
