200 Million of the Most United Group of Americans in the United States – Wrongful Foreclosure American Homeowners

By Sydney Sullivan

Judicial ActivismFor all the talk about a divided America (mostly political that we shy away from on the DC blog), there is a HUGE group of people that can collectively agree we were screwed, smeared, and denied due process in courts that failed to follow the Rule of Law. This is the massive population of American Homeowners.

The majority of over 84 MILLION families were unwittingly lured into a corrupt Wall Street securities scheme that cost them their clear title properties and in some cases their lives or the lives of their loved ones. American Homeowners can easily collaborate and identify with each other because the same crimes were committed over and over on each of them. Talk about a united, cohesive bunch of people – we are the American Homeowners! Continue reading

Bank Induced Defaults….and What the Government Knew

loan-modification-scam-avoid-companies-offeringIf you think you have your mortgage modification under control – STAY ALERT. Discussions with attorneys have indicated the banks are reneging on their modification agreements and settlements – even after judicial order. Servicers like Ocwen Loan Servicing are refusing Western Union payments and some servicers are peddling properties they have agreed by court order to reinstate to real estate brokers whose agents are spreading false rumors that homes are back in foreclosure. It is hard to understand how anyone in the real estate industry would ever touch a foreclosure – let alone set themselves up for a lawsuit by blatantly trying to sell a home not listed for sale by its legal owner.

Danielle Kelley, Attorneys at Law PLLC posted Bank Induced Defaults….and What the Government Knew – a brilliant synopsis of the modification scam industry. Continue reading

DUAL TRACKING VIOLATIONS DURING MODIFICATION PERSIST

Dual tracksDual tracking is when a servicer has you filling out modification paperwork and sending them your bank statements, proof of residency, tax returns, P&Ls, payroll stubs, etc. (over and over) and actually is processing your foreclosure at the same time.  Homeowners were supposed to be protected from dual tracking during modification.

But in case you were wondering if you can sleep at night while under the modification game – here are some interesting facts just released from the California Reinvestment Coalition (CRC) who distributed a survey to housing counselors in February 2013 to Report on how the banks were holding up their end of the bargain. So, if California is any indication of what the banks are doing around the rest of the country – be very wary. Continue reading

FORECLOSURE MEDIATION IS A BOOBY TRAP

Mediation suggested by the courts – like modification, is a trap.  It buys time for the banks to dummy up more records and documents, while lulling the homeowner into a false sense of security and reliance that the servicer can actually perform a modification.  In most cases they can’t.

The number of fraudulent assignment of mortgage documents filed in the Hawaii Bureau of Conveyances, like many other states is appalling. Compounding the assignment fraud is the gigantic number of unrepresented homeowners in these foreclosure and eviction actions.  These homeowners have absolutely no understanding that an assignment of mortgage even exists or that it is fraudulent, assigned too late to a New York or Delaware trust, was filed with intent to Continue reading
