Thank You Wells Fargo… Signed the DOERS of Mandelman & Field
Hey DOERS… Good News Once Again, this time for
Tom Stover & Jeneane Traynor-Stover
(And that would be 8 out of 8 for the DOERS… but who’s counting?)
Ooops, you did it again! Yes, it’s true… Wells Fargo contacted Tom and Jeneane up in Granite Bay, California mid-day today to let them know that their SALE DATE of February 3, 2012 HAS BEEN POSTPONED. This was the DOER ALERT posted late in the day last Friday, and today is Tuesday, so even though it wasn’t handled within 24 hours as we’ve gotten used to… I can live with 48 hours too. (I don’t like it, but I can live with it… LOL.)
The truth is that although I did see that some DOERS sent emails in response to the ALERT on Friday, there weren’t nearly enough. And then when we didn’t hear anything from Wells yesterday, Jeneane called me and mentioned that she thought that maybe the DOER ALERT got lost in people’s inboxes as a result of being posted late on Friday.
So, I reposted it yesterday and last night I sent out about 100 emails to DOERS, and sure enough… a lot more emails started flying towards Wells… and by today at 11:00 AM… it was a brand new day for Jeneane and Tom. See how that works? DOERS have got to stay up on this… you promised to for 120 days, right? And I’ll try not to post late on Fridays… deal? Cool.
Here’s the email I received from Jeneane at 11:00 AM today.
Dear Mandelman and the DOERS…
I wanted to let you know asap that I received a call from Michael Berg from the executive office of complaints at Wells Fargo. He was very nice, the first thing he said was the sale was postponed and he is my single point of contact and he is getting a package out to me today and when I receive it tomorrow he wants me to call him back to go over it.
WOW, that was great, you really are doing an amazing job at getting results, I will keep you posted!
You are a lifesaver, or shall I say a family saver, I do realized that there is not guarantee of a loan modification, but just being given the consideration of being informed is all I asked for!
Okay, well now that Wells has stopped the clock on the sale date… I for one have all the confidence in the world that Wells Fargo will find a way to modify this loan so Tom, Jeneane and their beautiful daughter will be able to stay in their home with payments they can afford. And I’m sure all of our prayers are with Tom that he fully recover so he can get back to work on a full-time basis soon.
Thank you to all the DOERS who helped DO this! But there still aren’t enough of you DOING what you promised you would DO. If we want to be able to affect bigger issues… national issues… then everyone’s going to have to turn up their game… get with the program… start taking this more seriously and continue spreading the word.
Sorry… it’s work I know. But it’s not that much work. You should all be very proud of what we’ve accomplished together and over a very short period of time… so you should be talking about it everyone you know… bragging even.
Stay tuned… unfortunately there are more DOER AlERTS to come!
Mandelman & Field OUT!
OFFICIAL DOER STATEMENT OF PURPOSE
BY MARTIN ANDELMAN & ABIGAIL FIELD
We, Mandelman & Field, are joining forces to end the foreclosure crisis. We’ve been writing about the crisis—Mandelman for more than three years and 600+ articles, Field for about half that—but frankly, writing’s not enough.
We need to DO more to solve the massive crisis our country is enduring. We must act now, because the crisis we’re in will get much, much worse. This year is an election year… the time for decisive action is now.
But by ourselves we can’t do enough. We need YOU to DO too.
Mandelman has already inspired a core group of DOERS, people who have already solved the mortgage modification nightmares of six people. But to solve the problems faster than one mortgage at a time and to attack bigger problems, we need more DOERS… a lot more.
Here’s what we DOERS DO:
1. We take action.
We are knowledgeable, active and involved. We know that our actions make a difference because we’re all working together, multiplying our impact. That’s why we continue to take action, each and every day.
2. We know there’s no “try” in DO.
Either you DO, or you don’t.
3. We build big victories out of little victories.
We’re singles hitters with a really high on base percentage. We scratch out the runs it takes to win every way we can. Our actions are simple, discrete, and quick to do, like sending an email, making a call, mailing a letter.
We work this way because swinging for the fences wastes lots of effort and results in more strikeouts than our country has time for. Besides, it took years to make the mess we’re in, and there’s no silver bullet that fixes everything all at once. We have to do many things, and collectively they will make the big changes we need.
4. We focus on our similarities, not our differences.
We’re not about right and left… we’re about right and wrong. Frankly, our nation’s policies on housing and banks are so bad, we have plenty of solid common ground for everyone. Since we’re focused on fixing those two interrelated issues—housing and bank policy—our divisions on other issues are irrelevant.
5. We believe in “We, the People.”
We join forces to make change because we are Americans. It’s our Constitutional birthright to be in charge, to make change together. And we know if we act together to make good policy, we all benefit.
6. We recruit more DOERS, because size matters.
To solve the big problems we need to be correspondingly big. We’re not playing games. We are DOING to win.
7. And we are in it to win it.
We are relentless. We take our tasks seriously. We do our best. We never let down our fellow DOERS by not DOING our individual parts.
So, please don’t delay… DO it today… it’s easy to DO… and to win, we need you.
Becoming a DOER and committing to our code of action is easy. Just send an email to either one of us:

All you have to write in the message is: Count on me to be a DOER. Or, just say: I’m in. Tell me what to DO.
About once a week we’ll call on you to DO something important… something that matters a lot.
It feels really good to be a DOER, ask anyone who is.
