Not to make light of the two months wages and benefits, but what about former employees that lost their deferred compensation, this was money that was earned and witheld from their paychecks, the put in to a trust.

What they did to you guys doesn't surprise me in the least.

I feel bad for all of the honest employees that were let go.
And I feel sorry for the investors they ripped off. And for the good customers that needed to work out modifications on their loans due to a 3% increase in rate, and their inablility to refinance because their property will not appraise for the amount needed.

This market bust wasn't anticipated by anyone and AHM should have been willing to work with the customers, and in doing so would have protected the investors.

How can they get away with this?

I just don't get it.
