Credit Card Collections The government is probing JP Morgan for what they believe to be credit card fraud. The government has found discrepancies between the records of what borrowers owed and inaccurate record-keeping by outside law firms the company used to sue cardholders The company claims no wrongdoings in the upkeeps of their financial books. To prove this to the government, they should have an audit done to make sure that all of their credit card information is correct in case they are sued by the government Faltering Website As JP Morgan tried to update their website, the website went out of service on 17.3 million users. This is not the first time the website has failed after an upgrade. JP Morgan needs to hire a computer website expert to understand why the Internet site keeps failing, and what they can do to prevent it from happening again. Bank of America Problem Solution Loss of Market share Bank of America is set to lose much of it’s market share that it gained from the acquisition of Countrywide Banking & Home Loans Bank of America should give up corresponding lending. This will save the company money because these loans usually don’t provide high revenue. The Loss of $9 Billion In the second quarter of 2011, Bank of America lost $9 Billion from the mortgage security settlement. Bank of America needs to analyze where they can create cost cutting measures to save money. They should also invest in outside companies (international companies) to produce more revenue.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
