Company Won't Accept Mortgage Payments, Tells Customer They've Defaulted

There's a type of business that makes itself deliberately hard to navigate just so they can charge weird fees.

Navigating the corporate landscape as one person can be an absolute nightmare, but after dealing with the absurd process of paying their own mortgage, this person realized they didn't have to put up with the nonsense. For another tale of financial absurdity, here's a guy who got hounded for a trivial debt and ended up mailing them a dime.

Extremely Bad Financial Decisions Clients Made

For most of us, it would seem like having a lot of money would be easy. As long as you don't spend it all on chocolate fountains and solid gold cars, you'll be fine. But for some reason, some people have a really hard time stopping themselves from making extremely ill advised investments. Whatever the bad decision, financial professionals have to hear about all of this disappointing behavior. For some other money shenanigans, here's wealthy people being extremely out of touch.

Wild and Dumb Things People Wanted Loans For

Personally, we'd wish we could move money around as recklessly as banks themselves do and get bailed out with no repercussions, but anyway here are some stupid and weird things people wanted to invest in. People have stupid business ideas that are worthy of sitcoms, and generally make bad decisions. For some more people who were interesting with money here's an entitled mom who lashed out when her baby sitter quit and times that spoiled rich kids had their world burst by real life.

Dude Almost Falls For Incredibly Believable Scam

We like to see idiot scammers get trolled, but sometimes they're incredibly clever and have access to way more of your information than you thought. Seriously, someone can dig up tons of personal information on you like your family members and past addresses in order to look legit, and frankly that's spooky as hell. This guy had to deal with just that but thankfully had the sense to back out.

Someone is getting fired.

An Arizona man who didn't realize his local bank was closed on Veteran's Day arrived only to discover that someone left the doors unlocked.

Rey Lopez entered the bank and realized no one was around. He called out and got no response.

wistv.com - Columbia, South Carolina

"I was basically inside the bank and I had access to the computers, the desks, the registers, the furniture. Anybody could have gone in there and just helped themselves to whatever," Lopez told KPHO.

After snapping a selfie of his stranger encounter, he called police to get the place locked up.

Biggest missed opportunity ever.

Bonny and Clyde, they ain't.

A couple of very smart people bragged about their Aug. 24 Asheville, Ohio bank robbery by posting pictures on social media with the wads of cash they took from the bank tellers.



This is obviously not a smart idea.


According to Sostre News:

Police were helped in their investigation by the clear images showing John Mogan and Ashley Duboe hamming it up with their fortune in greenbacks. Four days after the robbery, they began posting photos of their loot, and one friend complained that Mogan " didn't hook a brother up."

Mogan and Duboe were arrested this week for the August 24 robbery. Police say they gave a note to the teller in the Ashville bank, and walked out with a tall stack of bills. He looks nervous on the surveillance video, but in the days after the heist, they both looked gleeful on their Facebook postings.



Apparently, Morgan had just gotten out of state prison for an earlier bank robbery. He put on make up to disguise his face and neck tattoos. But sadly, nothing could disguise his stupidity.
