The Chipmunk and the Bear

Once upon a time there was a busy little chipmunk who spent all his days gathering nuts and hiding them in little clutches so he would always have plenty to eat when the winter came. He scampered and scurried in his daily search and then would run to hide his treasure. There was only one problem with his plan.....

In the same neighborhood forest was a huge black bear who lumbered along always looking for the chipmunks treasures and when he found them he would smash them up, stomp them down and rob all the nuts the chipmunk had collected. His appetite was unsatisfiable and his mission in life was to scout out, follow, and find out some way to steal the nuts from all the chipmunks in the area. And, there was nothing the chipmunks could do. They were too little and the bear was too big.

But wait, what is that in the distance? A bear hunter with all his dogs coming closer and closer.......

This time it's about raising a couple's payment from $370 to $911 for no reason. Payments had been made on time they were faithfully paying down their balance but Chase wanted more money.

Why do I keep writing? I hope everyone will move their money out of Chase! They have totally forgotten that we are customers and it is our money they are messing with! I'm just a small voice but more and more people are coming to the same conclusions. Please pass the word on. We can advertise just like they can.
