Round 4 Fight (using cheap tactics now)

Round 4 Fight (using cheap tactics now)

Well round 4 letters just went out to Sallie Mae, Verizon and Cap1 Auto.  I took off the gloves and just laid it all out there this time.  Fully explained current financial situation, health of mother (whom I pay for her care) and showed pictures of my storm damaged house.

 

Time to see if any of these companies have a heart!

This is just one of the pictures.  My ceiling in my second bathroom upstairs collapsed due to leak in roof and water soaking into the insulation.

Re: Round 4 Fight (using cheap tactics now)

Just got call from SM advocates office. I will say they are quick on initial call. He informed me he would look into account and let me know in 3-5 business days. Not holding breath but maybe I'll get lucky.

Thanks. Contractor starts work next week. Since there is likely mold issues we are going to have to demo the whole bath and also doing a kitchen redo. I'm going to put another 6k into 14k I'm getting from SBA and do some upgrades.

Just got call from Cap1. They are investigating and should have update by Monday. Again not holding breath but here's to hoping.

Still no call from Verizon. I'm sure they ignored my letter.
