USAA Bank HELOC / unfair collection practices

1 AR, United States Review updated:

USAA bank is a military only insurance and bank. They specialize in taking advantage of our military members. I have a HELOC or second mortgage on a home in Arkansas. The home has dropped in value 100k and I am unable to sell, rent, or give away. USAA put me on their automated computer system that calls at random as early as 0655 a.m. and as late as 0900 p.m. They even called December 24th at 0800 pm. with their automate system that asks you to hold and then it hangs up because no one was available to receive this call. When the bank calls the caller ID shows unknown caller and they do not identify them selves until they have who they are looking for on line. I wrote letter requesting them not to call so early or use their automated system and their rep told my during my last call that they did have to abide by the fair collection act.

    I have been a USAA member for over 25 years, my husband recenty lost his job and we fell behind in 1 of our 7 accounts with them. They have us on auto-dialer and call at least 8 times a day. The phone rings and there is no one on the other end--I waited 2.5 minutes yesterday to speak to someone and then it hung up. A half hour later, I spoke to someone. Then, later that evening I received two more calls. Shocked that this is one of the big companies that specializes in military lending. They do NOT follow the law. I don't even want to get into the predatory lending practices. Encouraged no doc loans, including mortgages, that were obtained with the ease of going through McDonald's drivethrough. Very bad turn turn for the worse with this company. I would love to have others post their experiences whatever they are!

    I've been with them for for about 25+ yrs and have never had any issues. Maybe because I don't spend $$ unless I know I have the cash behind me to pay it off. That's the problem with people today--spend today thinking that no emergencies will ever come up and that a financial institution will bend over for you--no questions asked. It's people like you that result in some of us receiving lower savings/CD yields.

    To the holier than though person that doesn't spend more than they think they can afford...but for the grace of God...and as far as USAA goes, I have had clients bring me tape recordings of USAA saying that because they are not debt collectors and because this is their debt, they don't have to comply with the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act. They were nasty in the calls I have heard. Not impressed with how they treat these people, who were also members for 25 years before suffering UNEXPECTED setback. Boy, Mr Holier than though, you must be ready for ANYTHING! How about some empathy! I was in the military and had a lot of other military members that I had to deal with who had the same attitude.
