CASE IN POINT: FORECLOSURE MILLS, JUDICIAL FRAUD, CONSUMER EXPLOITATION, GOVERNMENT SHAMS (an abstract)
Unscrupulous foreclosure mill activities are more criminally exploitive than what becomes reported –not only in Florida. Appalling collection abuses have resulted in mill lawyers (or their affiliates) obtaining ownership of fraudulently foreclosed properties via purported bids at “simulated” auctions. Certain fraudulently auctioned properties become “flipped” illegally to Freddie Mac. Some mill lawyers file into court records fee-making pleadings (summary judgments, etc) when Freddie Mac is not party to cases, and they bill $$$$ fees pretending to represent Freddie Mac. As manifest throughout my http://www.lawgrace.org website, mills have cooperation and applause of federal and state courts.
Through falsified Bankruptcy Court pleadings, some foreclosure mill lawyers wrongfully, illegally impede homeowners’ restructuring debts, and discovery of the actual owners of mortgage notes. Such lawyers file falsified bankruptcy “Lift Stay” motions in names of either defunct lenders or lenders with no ownership of property notes. To the contrary, bankruptcy “lift stays” should not be granted where there’s no “standing” since “ranking” and “secured debt” factors come into play. False bankruptcy pleadings not only help illegal property repossessions, any other creditors whom debtors owe, becomes deprived wrongfully of entitled shares of proceeds from those auction frauds; and ILLEGITIMATE “deficiency judgments” ; and third party debt-buyers seeking money after unfairly low bids resulted in large debt balances are also problems.
Plus, foreclosure mills work in concert with Wells Fargo. Among other things, Wells Fargo has tax advantage from fraudulent foreclosure proceedings after placing distressed homeowners’ names / social security numbers on false IRS (acquisition) form 1099-A’s, even when no lawful “acquisition” of properties occurred; such homeowners wrongfully become forced to explain these turn of events to the IRS after surprise receipts of tax bills.
People who think that people who can no longer afford their mortgage should pack up and move out, ignore that it is unjust to render people homeless by use of intentional, dishonest, illegal foreclosure proceedings. Foreclosure mill illegalities like Attorney David J. Stern’s actually accounts for “illegal foreclosures” and “Tent Cities” which could be Anyplace, USA. Consider: Former homeowners Lawrence and Linda Elin, gave up their home after becoming victims of Bernie Madoff. (Former Wells Fargo executive Cheronda Guyton held parties after the Elins moved out; and astonishingly, “Collin Equities” permitted Guyton personal, free access to that home. A foreclosure auction had not occurred which made “Collin” proprietor of property that supposedly ‘went back’ to Wells Fargo (how did Collin get it?) The point being, it is possible that the Elins unwittingly aided a foreclosure fraud which displaced them –people unknowingly do it all the time! These situations are salient reasons why foreclosure fraud (on farmers, businesses, as well as residences) MUST be investigated;” it can cripple peoples’ abilities to move forward with their lives for a very long time –and the cloaked perpetrators are often millionaires; those perpetrators are as bad as, or worse than Bernie Madoff.
Because it is imperative to expose the variations of noxious foreclosure shams; and I have been offering / pleading that My True Story (with Prima Facie proof!) be used in Case Study about deceptive foreclosures and judicial biases. I have not relished all my personal costs in almost 5 years of trying to tell the story (my own, as well as others) of how the judicial system is being utilized by the banking industry (knowingly and unknowingly, because sometimes the lenders don’t know the foreclosure mills are handing them dirty titles) to devastate people whose circumstances causes them difficulty with repaying debts. **SEE this entire article with resource links @ http://www.lawgrace.org/2010/08/14/foreclosure-mills-judicial-fraud-consumer-exploitation-government-shams/
