Borrowers will bear the brunt of this, but rumors from several sources have Fair Isaac planning on giving most residential lenders an early Christmas “present,” effective 12/26, of higher fees for mortgage work incorporated into a new tier system.

I heard a dealer in a Reno casino say that no one gets ruined by losing, they get ruined by trying to win back the money they lost. How hard is it to get back a lost client?
