REHYPOTHECATION IS YOUR WEAPON TO ESTABLISH THERE WAS NEVER A MORTGAGE LOAN – THESE WERE ALWAYS SECURITIES!

How did the UNREGULATED DERIVATIVES MBS debt reach $11 TRILLION when there are only 100 million mortgaged homeowners?

Deadly Clear

By Sydney Sullivan

2448936411_Wall_Street_answer_1_xlargeIn a world where the American Dream and Wall Street greed collide, when your life and home are no longer your own, we must look beyond the facade of the documents and dig deeper into the public archives to seek the truth of the concealed path that is destroying our nation built on the rule of law, the slavery of the collateral consisting of people and land records so that a few may prosper while millions of others face peril. It may seem like an impossible battle – until NOW! There is one thing that they didn’t count on – knowledge and truth that will awake your hero and cause the fatal change in their course.

Rehypothecationis your sword – know it well!

Lehman to Pay $2.4 Billion out of Bankrupt Estate

Livinglies's Weblog

“Lehman’s own documents show it was aware of the widespread problems and deteriorating performance of the loans it had securitized,” with half the loans at one point containing material misrepresentations, the trustees said in a court filing.

Editor’s Note: The difference is money — investors have it and borrower’s don’t. So while investors are successfully litigating fraud and deceit, the borrowers can’t afford to litigate the same issues. The idea that Lehman was somehow honest with borrowers and not with investors is preposterous.

Lehman recently closed out a $2 billion dispute with Citigroup Inc. over derivatives, and similar litigation over derivatives with Credit Suisse Group AG is the last major remaining contest.

Around 14 large institutional holders, including Goldman Sachs Asset Management LP and BlackRock Financial Management, broke ranks with hedge funds and accepted a settlement last year valuing claims around $2.4 billion. Chapman noted that these “sophisticated players” held around…

No Surprise: Ocwen & US Bank Hit by $3.8 Million Verdict in Chicago Federal Trial For Violations in Fake Foreclosure

Livinglies's Weblog

“The jury, after deliberating for approximately 7 hours, determined that Ocwen breached its contract, violated RESPA for failing to adequately respond to Saccameno’s Qualified Written Request, violated the FDCPA and committed both unfair and deceptive acts in violation of the Illinois Consumer Fraud Act.  Monette Saccameno was awarded $500,000.00 in compensatory damages, $70,000.00 in non-economic damages, $12,000.00 in economic damages and $3,000,000.00 in punitive damages. Nicholas Heath Wooten, Esq.Ross Michael Zambon, Esq., and Mohammed Omar Badwan, Esq. led the litigation team on behalf of Saccameno.”

And I ask again: WHY DO OCWEN DOCUMENTS AND “BOARDING PROCESS” GET ANY LEGAL PRESUMPTION ON SCANT TESTIMONY AND EVIDENCE THAT WOULD NOT BE ACCEPTED AS FOUNDATION IN ANY COURT OTHER THAN ONE IN FORECLOSURE PROCEEDINGS? With this verdict and dozens of other verdicts, settlements, lawsuits and whistleblower  news stories has establishing a crystal clear pattern of conduct of fake foreclosures based…

Bank Fraud News: The reason why banks and servicers should receive no presumption of reliability

Livinglies's Weblog

The following is but a short sampling supporting the argument that any document coming from the banks and servicers is suspect and unworthy of any legal presumption of authenticity or validity. Judges are looking into self-serving fabricated documentation and coming to the wrong conclusion about the facts.

Chase following bank playbook: screw the customer

“Chase provided no prior notice to its cardholders that their crypto ‘purchases’ would be treated as ‘cash advances’ on a going forward basis,” according to the suit.

Tucker claims he was hit with about $140 in fees and a “sky-high” interest rate of 26 percent without warning after Chase reclassified his purchases as cash advances, a violation of the Truth in Lending act.

How to Withhold Vital Information from Homeowners

Thursdays LIVE! Click in to the The Neil Garfield Show

Or call in at (347) 850-1260, 6pm Eastern Thursdays

Charles Marshall, Attorney and Bill Paatalo, licensed investigator discuss the moral hazard created by the Government Sponsored Entities (GSEs) banks, the courts and the regulators in allowing “presumptions” to be used even when the actual facts are different from the presumed facts.

Fannie and Freddie have long been a mystery wrapped in an enigma.

Before false claims of securitization, before fabrication and forgery of documents, the GSEs had fairly clear role in the origination, servicing and enforcement of mortgages. Now they are used as cover to hide lack of ownership where the banks and servicers make the homeowner travel and endless loop leading nowhere.

Now, as to any specific loan, we don’t know which of the following applies:

  1.  GSE is the guarantor of the…

It feels like State and Federal Legislators don’t have a Clue about what real-life Americans Face Every Day

By Sydney Sullivan

The Hawaii legislature in 2018 started off wanting to make it a “Felony” if you rented a room in your home short term without the required licensing. Most folks are all for the necessary permit and, of course, paying the taxes. But making a vacation rental violation a felony – well, that went a bit too far.

Sometimes it feels like state and federal legislators don’t have a clue about what real-life Americans face every day. Legislators have always had a paycheck, even during the 2008 meltdown. While many folks were losing their homes, banks offered sweet refinance and payoff deals to legislators all over the country. Average homeowners couldn’t get a refinance or modification from 2008 through 2012 because the banks told them to miss 3 payments to qualify for HAMP and then denied homeowners the opportunity to reinstate their loan – because they were unknowingly in DEFAULT.

Congratulations, You Defeated Plaintiff’s Motion for Summary Judgment, But Do You Know The Ten Things You Need To Do Next?

Sundays: 3 pm (HST) Click HERE to listen.

Homeowners in growing numbers lately, even pro se, have suddenly been defeating summary judgment in foreclosure proceedings or securing appellate reversals of prior summary judgments remanded for trial.

As our listeners know, there are many foolproof ways of challenging the validity of default notices, general loan ledgers, and ownership of promissory notes at filing inception, which we have addressed on prior shows, one or more usually sufficient to defeat summary judgments once you know how easily it can be done, depending of course always on how knowledgeable your foreclosure Judge is.

Wells Fargo “Lending” Securities It Didn’t Own

This is why there is over $11 TRILLION in UNREGULATED MBS DERIVATIVE debt when there are only 100 million mortgageable properties in the U.S. housing universe. Securitization and rehypothecation have taken down the American Dream and creamed Fannie & Freddie.

Livinglies's Weblog

Translation: WFB was the “custodian” of alleged “mortgage-backed” certificates issued for the benefit of investors who paid billions of dollars for ownership of the certificates. WFB “Loaned” those alleged securities to brokers. The brokers in exchange provided “collateral” the proceeds of which were reinvested by WFB. In short, WFB was laundering the investors money for the sole benefit of WFB and not for the investors who owned the certificates and certainly to the detriment of the brokers and their buyers of derivative instruments based upon the loan of the securities.

This case reveals the flowering of multiple levels arising from false claims of securitization. First WFB issues certificates from a fictitious trust that owns nothing. Then it keeps both the money paid for those certificates and it keeps the certificates as well. On Wall Street this practice is called holding securities in “street name.” Then WFB engages in trading on…

Falling prey to Predatory Lenders & Scavenger Attorneys: Tell me your story.

Livinglies's Weblog

Are you a victim of a predatory foreclosure attorney?

Email me at:  info@predatorylies.com

Homeowners who are subjected to a predatory servicer’s tactics to foreclose on a home are desperate for a solution and highly vulnerable to being exploited by an unethical attorney.   Over a period of years, or even decades, a servicer with no proof of standing can emotionally, physically, mentally and financially break down a homeowner to the point where a scavenger attorney can come in and finish off any remaining savings, assets or retirement funds.

Predatory tactics by servicers include fabricating documents to create the appearance of standing, refusing to identify the true creditor, revoking completed modifications, retaining modification payments, breaking and entering, intimidation tactics, and other unsavory behaviors meant to drive a homeowner from their home or stop fighting.

This is a time when a homeowner is at an elevated risk for divorce, unemployment, illness, depression, and…
