More BIG SIX BANK penalty nightmares… when will Canadians learn to look elsewhere for their mortgage?

greedy banker Here’s a great article from The Star’s Ellen Roseman on mortgage penalty nightmares.  She shares just a few stories out of the dozens she’s received over the past little while.   There is no reasonable justification for charging borrowers these inflated penalties…   If you think your immune from these penalties, think again.

Notice the name of the Banks that are mentioned in her article… Yes, part of the BIG SIX club…  Don’t get lulled into believing that dealing with a BIG SIX BANK offers some sort of immunity from higher penalty charges…   The experiences of these borrowers and countless others proves otherwise…

I’ve been getting more calls and comments on this recently… $10,000, $15,000, $20,000 in penalties.  How is it that the smaller Lenders can offer the same or better interest rates, and not charge these inflated penalties?   The BIG SIX BANKS reported a record $30billion combined profit in 2012…!!  Doesn’t make any sense, does it?   And yet, it continues…

Remember, there are several other Lenders that don’t calculate their penalties with the same inflated formula…   Seek advice from a mortgage broker…  get another opinion… There are better options and I have access to them!   It’s no secret…. I’m happy to share this info to anyone that wants it.

Come on Federal govt… do something to stop this madness and protect Canadians from this gouging!

Your best interest is my only interest!

As always, I welcome your comments, calls and questions.

RBC Boycott has gone viral with Facebook and twitter.

RBC-Bank It’s official.  Canadians are outraged over RBC replacing Canadian workers with foreign workers. The story broke this weekend from CBC and it’s not going away anytime soon.greedy banker

Over 5,000 comments were posted before the comments section was closed.   And now a Facebook page called ‘Boycott Royal Bank of Canada” and several twitter hashtags have popped up creating quite a buzz amongst Canadians.

RBC executives are trying to put a positive spin by saying they are trying to ‘redeploy the affected employees’.  Come on RBC, we all know what’s happening.  So let’s be very clear.  RBC is replacing current Canadian jobs with cheaper foreign labor.   The current jobs are being shipped overseas to India where labor is less expensive.   End result is a higher net profit for the RBC shareholder.   I guess 2012’s record $7billion profit just isn’t enough!

RBC accused of terminating Canadian workers in place of cheaper, foreign labor.

RBC-Bank RBC reported a record $7.5billion profit in 2012.  big newsThat was up by 17% from 2011.  Not bad.  In fact, all the BIG SIX BANKs had a great 2012… with a combined record profit of 30 billion!.   There’s nothing wrong with profit.  All businesses should expect to make a reasonable profit.   And a healthy and profitable banking system is important for Canadians.  Our Banks are so big that 5 of the top 8 most profitable corporations are now Banks.

But when is it enough?  And how far will the BIG SIX BANKs go to increase their profits?   Would you believe that Canadian Banks could or would outsource work to foreign countries to save a buck?!    CBC News reports that RBC is terminating 45 IT systems support jobs and replacing them with foreign workers.   iGATE corp. is an outsourcing corp from India with over 27,000 employees, according to their website.
