Those seeking foreclosure assistance or wondering what help there is to them in foreclosure should read this article from Naked Capitalism
It was a rude introduction to what was to become staples of foreclosure
fights: the bank side producing documents that were clear fabrications to
fix the ownership problem; a servicer employee sternly insisting that the documents
had only been in certain locations when Fedex tracking codes showed
him to have perjured himself; a lawyer for the foreclosure mill admitting to
conduct that should have gotten her disbarred.
The foreclosure reviews showed persistent, widespread efforts by Bank of
America to avoid any finding of borrower harm. These efforts were supported
and enabled by Promontory. The whistleblowers, told their role would be to
act as investigators and help borrower get compensation they deserved, all
described the review process as seriously flawed. Yet even with those obstacles,
they saw abundant evidence of serious damage to borrowers.
