Dear Cautious in MA:
I just Googled up "Carrington Mortgage Services" and below is the series of horror stories from apparently unhappy Carrington customers.
This is consistent with what I suspected Cautious; Any account "sold" by EMC (Owned by Bear Stearns) is not likely to be shipped to an improved environment. In addition to the multitude of extra gloomy testimonials regarding Carrington, the term "American Foreclosure Specialists" (afs) seems to be dominant.
Also please see:
(I would be very cautious if I was you and I'm not trying to be cute.)
