1/14/2013 – (Day  123) Short Sale Department with Bank of America responded “unfortunately our department cannot assist you with your short sale.  Our records indicate that this loan has either been closed as settled or paid in full and the release completed.  So escrow sent in a Zero demand.  They came back with a full pay off.
1/15/2013 – (Day 124)  I called the Short Sale department, spoke with Kim, she said they could not help me that I would have to speak with the BK department, spoke with Laquisha and she said they couldn’t help me that I needed to speak with the Recovery department, spoke with Joe in the Recovery department and he said he couldn’t help me that I needed to speak with the Short Sale department because the Recovery department does not negotiate, so I asked for the manager and was put on hold, Joe then stated that his manager Scott French was gone for the day but he spoke with Sherry Williams a manager and that I needed to go back and deal with the BK department. I called back to the BK department and spoke with Sasha Clark and explained everything again, she said there was nothing she could do and that her manager Shamone Coleman was busy and could not take my call that I could call back in the morning.  Finally after pleading with Sasha she said that she would help me deal with the Short Sale department, so she calls and states that she will stay on the line as long as needed to help me through the process, Lance from the Short Sale department begins to help me and has a question for Sasha about a minute into the call and she had already left the conversation.  After begging and pleading with Lance to help me he said I had no alternative because the Short Sale department could not help me was to call back to the BK department.  Again I call to the Short Sale department and speak with Rico, I explain the entire process again and he says we will call the Short Sale department together, I explained about how Sasha had abandoned the call early and  if there was a possibility if he could hang out on the call at least for a couple of minutes to help the family here, Amy Smith picked up the call from the Short Sale department and after a complete explanation she said it is very simple, you are emailing the package to the wrong email address, you should have been given the Short Sale Recovery email address because the loan had already been written off.  This is a lesson on Persistence, Determination and Faith that I can make this happen!  Thank you Rico and Amy for finally after over 5 hours of dealing with Bank of America solving this matter!  Short Sale package submitted (again) via both email and fax.
