Countrywide Mortgage Co. / refinance/stimulus 2009

Contact information:
Countrywide is the worst financial institution in the United States. It is not surprising they have been a part of scandal. Countrywide is the Mortgage Company I pay, and can you believe that I spoke to 4 different people and got 4 different responses. I called inquiring about a lower interest rate and/or a program I may qualify to lower my 7.9% interest rate on my $127, 000 home loan that is now valued at $100, 000 dollars. I hadn't missed a payment and wanted to know would I be eligible for a lower interest rate. The first person was very encouraging told me to wait a few weeks when more information was available; she told me someone would call me. She gave me a reference number and all. However, no one got in touch with me after 2 weeks so I called them back. The next person sounded like a broken recording. She kept repeating the same old thing to me after asking her different questions about how I would qualify for a lower interest rate. (The same questions the first representative so eagerly responded to). Needless to say, she ended up telling me I don’t qualify for anything because my investor was not Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac. She told me that I would have to apply and qualify for a regular refinance option that would increase my already over priced home. The 3rd person told me that I needed to be delinquent before I could qualify for the new government programs. Yes! She told me I paid my mortgage on time; I don’t qualify for lower interest rates. What a first pay on time and be penalized? I was amazed that she said it out her mouth, not surprised though, Countrywide again are like robot recorders, I'm sure someone said that to her and like a recording she repeated it. However, I spoke with a manager "Mark" told me he’s going to get right on my case. Said someone would call me first thing in the morning. Found out two days later he lied! Lied about his name, no Mark work there and obviously I never got a call. I called back again. This time it started all over again I would have to apply for and qualify for a regular refinancing costing me 4 to 5 thousand more dollars onto my already over priced house! The housing market may be bad, but Countrywide’s customer service is 100 times worst! My neighbor is using Wells Fargo and she’s not only had a much better response she got a lower interest rate!
