Not sure where to post this question,
I recall once hearing a vort on the specialty of the number 7, one of the points was that it's the only number that can't be split or multiplied into an even number, anyone know what I'm referring to or knows of a source for such an idea it would be greatly appreciated.

Wait till August :)
Sounds like what I would need, but I don't really have a case, that's why I asked my original question...

Nice try, but thereís a great difference between a misrepresentation of fact and of future intention; and, more importantly, the whole thing does not start because we are not talking about contract negotiations/representations but, rather, just a letter threatening suit if payment due is not made.

As the current administration and Congress gets progress in undoing the damage of the Obama administration (to the economy, and to global peace and well-being of mankind), we can't forget and have to give credit to Obama for the one GOOD thing he did - Making Home Affordable Program, aka. HAMP.

Just last week, a friend of mine got approved for an unbelievable mortgage modification (happened on לג בעומר, so definitely in zchus of רשב"י) after being denied all attempts for many years. Not paying his mortgage for about 8 years definitely helped him manage tuition bills, as well as get through some tough financial times. He will now be able to pay reasonable payments on his mortgage without fear of losing his house.

While the Making Home Affordable program has already expired, I definitely give credit to that program for getting the mindset of the banks to work out these kinds of modifications even after the program has expired.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

Does anyone else find that they can't use amex on aliexpress? Every time I try, they send me a SafeCode via email, and when I enter the code it tells me that the payment failed.
Workflowy. You won't know what you're missing until you try it.

For every one of these stories I can show you 10,000 who lost their house due to the shenanigans played by the bank in offering to modify and then reneging on their offers. In inducing people to not answer the foreclosure filings and then claiming that they never offered modifications. So its actually nice to hear someone was helped. But please, dont thank Obama for this. It was Treasury that did it, not Obama.
Fair warning - Any PMs sent in response to forum posts are fair game for ridicule in public.

I ordered a package from Jet.com to an outdated address by mistake. Jet told me that the order couldn't be cancelled, but once I get tracking info, I can then contact the carrier and tell them to return it to sender. I just got USPS tracking info.

Does anyone know if this is doable with USPS? Am I better off calling / emailing them?

Thanks!

I know the banks were playing games. I once publicly called out a BofA VP on a conference call. It worked wonders, from a position of hitting a brick wall over and over, we got a modification approved in quickly.

Another great help was BBB. Another bank was stonewalling. After trying everything else, we contacted the BBB, and everything worked as it was supposed to.

I cannot advocate for the legal system. If someone has their foreclosure case in front of a judge like Dear, who pressures the banks to reach a settlement, as long as the homeowner is able to come up with a reasonable settlement, and knows what they are doing, they should be OK. I cannot say the same if the judge is Knipel.

I had a person come to me to try and help him with his second mortgage (which was significantly larger than the first) that was about to foreclose. He was on a trial modification with his first mortgage. After analyzing his situation, I advised him to break the trial and go for another attempt at a modification of his first. He followed my advice, the bank rep was shocked when we told him that were breaking the trial modification. At the end everything played out exactly as I had scripted it.
