Well, that's pretty despicable - something you'd expect from a debt collector rather than a major bank. Guess US Bank just lost at least one potential customer...

Rebuilding credit since 2015 (BK filed 8/14, discharged 12/14) - started out in 570's, now approaching 700 (FICO 6/17:TU 646/EX 678/EQ 677 FICO 8 or 690 NG 2, VS 3.0 6/21/17: TU 686/EX 684/EQ 693)! $951 Cap One secured Platinum/$3000 Cap One Quicksilver/$800 Amazon Prime Store Card/$3300 Discover It/$4000 Overstock Store Card/$1200 Walmart Store Card/$2000 Apple FCU Platinum Visa/$10k PenFed used car loan/$5k Navient student loan. Back in the garden as of 6/21/17 until at least Sept. 2017 unless I get a preapproval I can't refuse...

Awesome catch! Appreciate the link. Seems my mortgage was recently being serviced by a troubled loan servicing company.

I wouldn't call if "despicable", they were trying to get him to make a deposit to an overdrawn bank account. Yes, they should contact his attorney instead of the customer directly, but the reps for OD'd bank accounts probably aren't as well versed on BK laws & procedures as are credit reps, the bank account dept. might not have even been informed of the BK, as that notice is sent to creditors, not where you bank.

 

And in my opinion, this guy is being foolish - for a hundred something overdrawn he'll have a hard time opening any new bank account for years with that red flag reported to Chex and/or EWS.

If you dont have the ability to hire a lawyer the trustee of your case can be your best friend. I had an experience years ago when a creditor kept trying to collect during the BK process and went to the trustee with the letter they sent me, it was immediately taken care of.

"If there's a lack of money in your life, understand that feeling worried, envious, jealous, disappointed, discouraged, doubtful or fearful about money can never bring more money to you, because those feelings come from a lack of gratitude for the money you have."

"Reactions are powerful creators because they contain every element needed to manifest—they're a combination of thought, belief, and feeling in action. Positive reactions create more positive things, and negative reactions create more negative things. If you can respond to negative situations calmly and lightly, instead of with emotional turbulence, what happens next in your life will be so much better."

- Rhonda Byrne
