Pro Se Homeowner Newman raises issues as to whether Freddie Mac or PNC actually own the loan. The Judge appears to be quite astute and asks significant questions as to how PNC could be the real party in interest if PNC or National City had already sold the loan to Freddie Mac. The foreclosure attorney almost sounded like she wanted to tell the judge that Freddie Mac merely “leased” the revenue stream… but she doesn’t quite go that far… besides the homeowner never agreed to allow a “lease,” did they?
The 2nd best part is watching the surprise witness. Check out Mr. Arthur – a bit fidgety, yeah? Then who is he waving to at about the 12:13 min. mark? Maybe the Judge caught this…
In order to spot a liar, use the person’s usual behavior as a measuring stick to see if they’re stretching the truth.
But when it comes to reading someone, body language also speaks volumes. There are several gestures and mannerisms that can indicate that a person is lying, as long as they differ from the person’s regular actions. They include:
- Rapid eye movement
- Crossed arms
- Constant fidgeting
- Eyes focused to the right (indicates use of the creative side of the brain)
- Eyes focused firmly on an object
- Eye rubbing
- Legs crossed when seated
- Legs not planted firmly on the ground when seated
- Holding an object or gripping ankle, knee or skin of a crossed leg when seated
- Touching face, such as lips, cheeks, chin or nose
- Playing with hair
- Tugging ear
Although we’ve always been taught that lack of eye contact is a dead giveaway that someone is lying, this isn’t necessarily true. As we have been conditioned to look people in the eye to psych them out in business and sports, we have all been raised to be good liars.
