San Francisco, California (PRWEB) May 17, 2012
CSA, LLC (formerly Certified Securitization Analysis, LLC), the leading resource for consumers in debt has re-branded and launched their new website at http://www.1analysis.com. Offering an expanded suite of products which will empower consumers in the fight against wrongful, and in many cases illegal debt collection, CSA, LLC now offers securitization audits and analysis covering not only Commercial and Residential Real Estate Loans but also Credit Cards, Retail Installment Agreements i.e. Auto Loans and Student Loans.
With over 600* million credit cards currently in circulation in the US alone and the average credit card debt per household standing at close to $16,000**, many consumers are now defaulting on their credit cards. Similar to sub prime mortgage lenders, credit card issuers have been seeking to maximize profits by lending to those who are financially vulnerable and then spreading the risks by selling off securities based on credit card receivables. The financial crisis has reduced households’ access to credit, undermining the competitiveness of the credit card industry. Thus, credit card companies are more likely to be able to charge higher rates without losing all of their customers. Credit card companies will have no incentive to conduct proper underwriting of new accounts, since losses can be spread among the existing account holders who have fewer opportunities to change cards. If underwriting is tainted in these situations, then the securitization process is compromised and holds the same pitfalls as mortgage backed securitization, which leads to lack of standing by the banks and causes wrongful debt collection to proceed unmonitored. The consumer loses accordingly.
In the case of retail installment agreements, the auto loan is the most similar example to mortgage backed securities. Car dealerships have often securitized a sizeable portion of their customers' auto loans - that is, bundling several loans from purchasers into a security and then selling the security as a whole to a larger corporation. Securitizations enable a lender to remove debt from its books and sell them to larger financial institutions. Recently, many car purchasers have reported that their interest rates and monthly payment plans changed as soon as their loans became part of a securitized portfolio. Buried in the fine print of the auto loan were terms and conditions that allowed the securitized portfolio's manager to make these adjustments, and precluding the borrower or car purchaser from contesting the change.
Since no direct communication occurs between the customer and the large company that takes over the loan (customers are often unaware that their loans were securitized at all), car salesmen have been accused of fabricating the client's financials in order to close a deal. A recent case highlighted one individual whose monthly payments increased to $425 a month from $250 after their loan was part of a portfolio syndicated to a national bank because the dealership had changed his income information. Living on just $800 monthly Social Security disbursement, this person could not possibly have qualified for the loan.
In addition, student debt has now become a nightmare for Americans with the potential to explode as the next major US financial crisis as students and workers seeking retraining in a tough economic market are borrowing extraordinary amounts of money through federal and private loan programs to help cover the rising cost of college and training. Currently out of the $1Trillion student loan debt on the books, $300 Billion of that debt is currently 30 days or more past due.
CSA, LLC has recognized that the financial institutions are now foreclosing on America and are not helping Americans solve their financial debt crisis. “We’re on the securitization roller-coaster and it’s going off the tracks fast as consumers plunge deeper and deeper into debt and greedy financial institutions continue their wrongful debt collection practices.” says Adam J. Meyer, CEO of CSA, LLC. “The credit card provisions that have been identified as unfair, deceptive, and anticompetitive are not only sending American families further into debt, but standing in the way of economic recovery. The economic downturn and financial crisis have accelerated the adverse impacts of these practices on consumers, small businesses and our economy as a whole. CSA LLC’s new suite of product offerings seeks to combat these financial institutions wrongdoings and give America back to the consumers. This is our country and we are not willing to give it up to the banksters”.
Already known as a stalwart in mortgage securitization, this new suite of products will further enhance CSA LLC’s position in the debt collection space and assist the millions of US consumers who are saddled with unsurmounting credit card, retail installment and student loan debt. It will only take “1analysis” from CSA’s new product offering suite to put homeowners and those in debt on the correct path to reclaiming their homes and protecting themselves against the wrongful foreclosure and debt collection practices of the financial institutions.
