Harris Bank plays Scrooge

Postby Henry Vilas » Wed Dec 21, 2011 10:23 am

Remember the banker, Henry F. Potter, from "It's a Wonderful Life"? He has a counterpart at Harris Bank, which bought out the Reedsburg Bank and plans to foreclosure on businesses even though they never missed a payment.

Up To 52 Businesses Face Foreclosure In Reedsburg

Dozens of Reedsburg area business and property owners said Monday they are facing foreclosure even though many have never missed a mortgage payment.

The move will force many owners to downsize their operations, but BMO Harris Bank's decision is perfectly legal, mortgage experts said.

Dave Gonzalez's flag-making company in Reedsburg is safe because it's financed at a different bank, but his nonprofit church in Lake Delton is in jeopardy because it didn't make enough money, Gonzalez said.

That's pretty much their record. They gave my previous business 30 days to find a new card services provider just because they decided they didn't like us. We were fine, they just didn't like us. So I got a referral from another businessman.
