Talk:Bank of America leads Consumer Financial Protection Bureau complaints about mortgages

Journalist notesEdit

I e-mailed the raw data on my excel file that I processed to scoop. It is based on this data. There are a lot of comments inline to explain sourcing for supplemental facts and list which source was used. --LauraHale (talk) 18:09, 30 September 2013 (UTC)

Added the mortgage types later. Rather than add the excel data and re-e-mail, pasting table below.

Partial reviewEdit

In verifying specific facts, I've been through to the end of the paragraph on zip codes (by my count, that's the first seven out of thirteen paragraphs). It's 1:30am here and i'm going to bed, so I'm taking the article out of review. --Pi zero (talk) 05:35, 3 October 2013 (UTC)

  • Now nine out of fourteen, the eighth having split in two. --Pi zero (talk) 17:18, 3 October 2013 (UTC)
  • Ten of fourteen. --Pi zero (talk) 20:45, 3 October 2013 (UTC)

Review of revision 2022118 [Passed]Edit


The last sentence in paragraph 10 should include the number of total complaints received by each lender and the number of those complaints that were foreclosures so as to not misrepresent that large institutions are grouped with small institutions when it comes to complaints. The sentence should read:

"Foreclosure was the top area of complaints for a number of other lending institutions including 1st Alliance Lending, LLC (4/6 Complaints), OneWest Bank (628/927), Ally Bank (5/10), Banco Popular de Puerto Rico (22/55), Bank of the West (14/35), BMO Harris (63/145), BOK Financial Corp (15/43),Caliber Home Loans, Inc, (131/248), Capital One (173/418), Deutsche Bank (5/9) and EverBank (233/411)."
