But much more is gathered, stored and even sold without our knowledge. We wanted to understand how much of our data is out there, who collects it — and whether, in today’s world of oversharing online — privacy even matters.
FRONTLINE asked two privacy experts to help answer these questions, and talk about what they do to protect themselves online. CLICK HERE FOR THE PODCAST.
Does it affect your ability to achieve a mortgage modification? Just something to consider.
By FLOYD NORRIS
“At what point does this stop?” asked Gary Lynch, the former director of enforcement for the Securities and Exchange Commission who has gone on to jobs with many leading Wall Street firms and is now global general counsel at Bank of America.
He was referring to the escalation in penalties being levied on banks, culminating in the $13 billion JPMorgan Chase was forced to pay for a series of transgressions. Continue reading

Have you ever felt that the judge in your case was not treating you or your attorney fairly, especially when the facts of bankster fraud were clear? Or when you have shown the judge a fabricated assignment of mortgage and an obviously fake endorsement on your so-called note? When you walk into the courtroom does your stomach sink and you imagine you hear a faint theme from the wicked witch of the west in the Wizard of Oz?
In a small Kentucky county, a homeowner just like you encountered the unthinkable – proof that his judge was prejudice and even worse – the judge was assisting the opposing counsel for the bank in a plot against him.
You’ve heard of popular sovereignty, right? It’s embodied in the Preamble of the United States Constitution. I’ll quote it for the sheer majesty of the language, archaic though it may seem in these “innovative” days:
We the people of the United States, in order to form a more perfect union, establish justice, insure domestic tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general welfare, and secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.

In an investigative post, MSFraud.org exposed an unknown state Attorneys General settlement with Lender Processing Services (LPS) for $113 million dollars in an El Paso district court.
One would wonder how, for example, the State of Hawaii (who received a pittance compared to the damage to titles LPS has caused) could even begin to agree to a settlement when they have NEVER even bothered to audit its own Hawaii Bureau of Conveyances! Hawaii is a mortgage lien state where the homeowner holds the deed, unlike a Deed of Trust state where the deed is held by a (fishy) beneficiary.
Millions of homeowners never knew that LPS fabricated and falsified documents that could still cloud their titles for years to come – even if they received a modification. The point here is that many states, including Hawaii where land rights are a very precious subject, have turned a blind eye to fraudulent assignments of mortgage or the fact that the mortgage Continue reading
For nearly 20 years, in particularly the last 10 years, the courts, foreclosure defense attorneys, homeowners and politicians have been bamboozled by the blur and use of “MERS” – the service mark for the MERS® eRegistry system owned and operated now by MERSCORP Holdings, Inc.
“MERS” first became the acronym, an abbreviation for the first Mortgage Electronic Registration Systems, Inc., in 1995. This corporation was registered in Delaware on October 16, 1995. In 1997 Mortgage Electronic Registration Systems, Inc. registered “MERS” as the service mark with the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) for its mortgage loan eRegistry system. This original MERS corporation has long since been eaten up by other entities created by its executives and board of directors to replace it over the past 18 years. Bottom-line: The original Mortgage Electronic Registration Systems, Inc. is dead and it died in 1998… RIP
The recent lawsuits filed in the SUPREME COURT OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, COUNTY OF NEW YORK are the beginning of a long process unraveling the frauds created by a generation of “Younger Boomers” and “Now Generation” Wall Street bankster executives that expected immediate gratification.
These smart-asses didn’t take the time to ensure all the pieces to the puzzle fit before they began their filthy rich land grab operation, causing a lot of damage and red ink to America and the rest of the world. Their failures are your insurance to defeat foreclosure once you understand what is missing. Continue reading
