Re: Anyone app'd with WAMU lately?

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!!

I am pretty sure the effects of this will trickle down to their credit card division as well.  All I know is:  I need a cli soon to buy a new Millenium  Falcon.  Subprime mess or not.
