I received that letter too at exactly the same date as your.  The contents are exactly the same too.   I don't have any new Wells Fargo short sale so I don't know if their web chat is helpful.  I had great experience with my Well Fargo Short Sale negotiator so I will email her my short sale listing when I get another Wells Fargo short sale.   I don't think there are good comments about equator and I don't want them ruin my transaction.
Oy vey. Aren't I lucky to have 3 new Wells offers to submit.  Be prepared, the wait is long, and the folks at Wells are still learning, and way behind.  It would be quicker to fax in like we used to, but they still make you use Equator even if you fax it in.  So far, horrific. For example, you can't just upload to the library, they make you fill in each line for the HUD and other docs.  And on some addendums they want a notary.  If their aim was to slow things down they have met their goal.
I've only done ONE WF Equator sale and it was right when they started with Equator...I'd say within a week from when they were up and running and it was HORRIFIC compared to BOA.  BOA is MUCH much easier on Equator.  They may have changed things from a couple months ago, but MAN, if I had my choice I would fax it in.
