I just had a brain-hurty moment I had to share. DH and I are looking to get a loan, so we called several places asking about interest rates, etc. One place was slightly higher than the others, so we told them that the rate was a little high, and thanked them for their time. They had all of our information. This was Thursday.
Today, I get a call from them, and a guy asked me why they didn't get our business, and I again explained about the interest rate. Remember, they called me. He then transferred me to someone who could take a second look, I figured it couldn't hurt. The next person gets on the line and says "Oh, you shouldn't have been transferred to me, I'm not qualified to do loans in that state." She offered to have someone call me in my state, but since I really didn't want to wait for another call, I said "No, thank you". I was kind of bemused that they called me and couldn't figure out what they were doing, but thought nothing more of it.
Just now, the same woman calls me again, and asks if anyone followed up with me on the loan information. I said that they hadn't, because I thought we were done. And she says (again) how someone can call me with more information. I just told her we decided to go with someone else.
This whole thing wouldn't be so brain-hurty if they hadn't called me! They already had all of my info and they transfer me to someone not qualified in my state, who apparently doesn't have the ability to just transfer me to someone who is.
