.....Nobody in the financial industry is saying that in so many words. But their actions speak volumes. While bankers have plenty of time to negotiate the terms of an $80 billion fund to rescue their own mortgage portfolios, customers are getting a busy signal if they want to fix a problem mortgage before it explodes into foreclosure or bankruptcy.
According to a Moody's survey of the mortgage companies that service about 80% of all subprime mortgages, lenders have eased terms on just 1% of the subprime mortgage loans that reset to higher interest rates in January, April and July of this year.
