foreclosure help: Making the Case for Blundering Nincompoopery - 04/16/08 02:52 PM
Did I spell that right? Hope so. . .
So anyway, I'm back with more "tales from the dark side." I am going to continue on my  Saga, while throwing Papa John's Pizza into the mix. Let me just state flat out, in as clear a way as I know how, that CountryWide's loss mitigation department is the most incompetent group of blundering nincompoops that I have ever seen.
