    I’d have thought those charming Barbarian ads bought Capital One more good will. Either their service sucks, or they’ve struck out with the feamle of the species.

    Surprised to see Wells Fargo up high. Thats who I use and I like them a lot, but Wachovia’s mortgage portfolio ought to have hurt them. They were marketing teaser-baited variable loans referenced to an internal mystery benchmark that are sure to blow up now that the 10-year is rising.

      fwiw Capital One bought ING Direct USA in June, 2011 and re-branded it as Capital One 360.

    What did Wells do with their pile of exotic mortgages? Or is it that their footprint is a more desirable locale than their competitors, and thus their portfolio has rebounded quicker and more substantially?

    Funny. I don’t see my credit union on the ladder.

    I’m picturing trust graphed against size.

    Too big to trust, is what the picture says.

    Wells Fargo is No. 2 – that says something about American banking:

    What Crocodile Chuck said: Not a name on that list I would trust to do much more than try to screw me.

    The article says the purchasers knew two mortgages existed but assumed it was the first that was being forecolosed on. How did the title company qualify the purchase, or was no title insurance purchased, in which case the purchasers should have known better (since they bought the house effectively cash it is quite possible that they did not buy title insurance. If you bought title insurance I am sure the report would have said subject to a lien no xxx. Since it was purchased at an auction, there was likley no real estate agent involved, so they can’t be blamed, and if the purchasers did not try to get a title policy its is their own tough luck. As one comment on the article said, purchasing foreclosures at an auction is a game folks who are uninformed should not play.
