HERE WE GO!!! Moratorium NOW – Rep Alan Grayson Petitions the Florida Supreme Court to HALT Foreclosures

Foreclosure Fraud has Peaked…

If the reports I am hearing are true, the illegal foreclosures taking place represent the largest seizure of private property ever attempted by banks and government entities.


This is lawlessness.


September 20, 2010

Chief Justice Charles T. Canady
Florida Supreme Court
500 South Duval Street
Tallahassee, FL 32399-1900

Dear Chief Justice Canady,

I am disturbed by the increasing reports of predatory ‘foreclosure mills’ in Florida. The New York Times and Mother Jones have both recently reported on the rampant and widespread practices of document fraud and forgery involved in mortgage assignments. My staff has spoken with multiple foreclosure specialists and attorneys in Florida who confirm these reports.

Three foreclosure mills – the Law Offices of Marshall C. Watson, Shapiro & Fishman, and the Law Offices of David J. Stern – constitute roughly 80% of all foreclosure proceedings in the state of Florida. All are under investigation by Attorney General Bill McCollum. If the reports I am hearing are true, the illegal foreclosures taking place represent the largest seizure of private property ever attempted by banks and government entities. This is lawlessness.

I respectfully request that you abate all foreclosures involving these firms until the Attorney General of the state of Florida has finished his investigations of those firms for document fraud.

I have included a court order, in which Chase, WAMU, and Shapiro and Fishman are excoriated by a judge for document fraud on the court. In this case, Chase attempted to foreclose on a home, when the mortgage note was actually owned by Fannie Mae.

Taking someone’s home should not be done lightly. And it should certainly be done in accordance with the law.

Thank you for your consideration of this request.


Alan Grayson
Member of Congress

He actually missed one…

But it is a start…

Ya know, I can’t help myself on quoting Judge Sasser’s comment when presented with these issues…


“I haven’t seen any widespread problem,”


Maybe you do now?

    She said that she would appreciate ANY thankful calls, emails, mails because Mr Grayson is the ONLY one that is taking notice to this foreclosure mess.

    She also asked that we mail the orlando office and make it attention to Mimi and she will OFFICIALLY log each letter and send to the Supreme court office..

      I just called him.

    • Alina says:

      I’ve called.

      • Alina says:

        I also called my representative, Rep. Darren Soto, and sent his an email forwarding a copy of Rep. Grayson’s letter.

        I propose we contact all our representatives and senators. They need to be behind us. If not, they don’t get our vote or the vote of all those we know.

    • B StLaurent says:

      you need to create a facebook fan page for action on this one item only so that people all across florida can click ‘like’ it, spread the word, and contact their representatives. I saw an action on education policy on facebook that gathered 50k fans in 6 weeks who buried Gov Crist in communications. He veto’d a Republican bill, as everyone wanted him to, and the rest is history. 50k fans in 6 weeks all emailing, mailing, calling….etc., That’s power. We buried him and he felt the power of the people.

      Laid off attorney takes on foreclosure cases…..

    Mr chief justice canady……………….Please hear our cries. All we want is a fair shake…………judtice..I think it is called. PLEEEAAASSSE….please…..please……….please.

  4. e.s. says:

    Fellow Foreclosure Fighters… I propose that we call, email, and mail Chief Justice Canadys office!

    DEFINITELY, we need to call, email, mail Alan Graysons office and THANK HIM…
    We NEED to encourage him and prompt others to do the same.

    TOGETHER, we can be ONE VERY LOUD voice!


  5. B StLaurent says:

    “Maybe you do now?”
    I doubt it given the amount of real estate that capital is seizing via the courts.

  6. Jack Straw says:

    Reading between the lines here, I think this is probably about “true and correct copies of originals” affidavits. The people signing them don’t ever see first hand the originals that they’re making their statements to support. Very bad for them, and the cases depending on them.

    This will affect everybody in a by-action state, since the T&CC affidavit is what gets the document case into court.

    I do not see a clear connection to MERS or the assignment issue here, but it definitely does sound like what I’m calling the TC&C affidavit (might be something else in FL), is not being executed by someone with first hand knowledge of what is being represented as being a True and Correct copy of the note, or other document being used as exhibits in the case.

  7. Alina says:

    WOO HOO!!!!!! Let’s all write letters to Rep. Grayson thanking him. We need more representative to do the same. Rep. Soto, are you listening???

  8. indio007 says:

    I sent an email to Grayson about this crap almost a year ago now (mostly MERS though)… About time he wakes up.

  9. Donna says:

    I’m in Michigan, so I apologize for not being as “up” on this as those of you in Florida. I have a question? Most of the posts I’ve seen have involved MERS. Are you aware of this happening for those loans that don’t show an assignment to MERS, or do not show on MERS look up tool??


    • yvonne says:

      Let me reply to that….yes, there are others that do not involve MERS…I’ve owned my home for 20 years…paid it off twice…last refi 1997…Watson & Katz tried to foreclosed f2000 or Bankers Trust (secretly Deutche but unknon at the time) they failed and cancelled without prejudice to return again as Deutche 2008…pending…David Stern…doceth loaded with fraudulent affidavits, assignements after the fact, lost note affidavits and suddenly, an’ original note’ showed up…needs forensic…

      Forecosure was not due to non payment…but stated as such…but have proof otherwise…was a case of asking some wrong questions about inusrance to the servicer and opened can of worms..but I promised to fight and have been since…finally got an attorney when the new but no longer there judge refused my motion for a hearing to bring closure to this farce so I could focus on my work…this can be draining in everyway…

      Strange discoveries when I hired an attorney…the loan was loaded with issues that I was unaware of if not for the epending foreclosure… TILA, etc. etc…wrong dates on documents..note and mortgage dated different dates, dat on recorded shows blatant attemtp to change date to match that of loan…assignment before actual mortgage was given, 12 months of no satisfaction of mortgage by the previous lender…12 months..floating note???Cloud on title unknown to me…

      Attempt by GMAC to create one page note..where did GMAC come from??? An amended complaint out of timing…and the list goes on…a QWR, and no further activity for almost a year until recently this ‘not’ that yet has to be verified..but not one I signed..seems they never let me sing one …I never receive copies of any docs that were promsied to be sent to me…am a good record keeper…question…how can a note be notarized by a differnt notary than the closing notary on the other docs…also…HUD 1 different date…but same date as was hand written changed from one date to the next..can clearly be seen on the recorded doc…with no intial by all parties….

      My God does not like ugly…He will continue to reveal all that was don in secret …that is His promise to us which He is obviously keeping…so I am expecting a free and clear title and perhaps the bank may owe me some interest? LOL…After all, I am the original investor here, right?…
      Your thoughts….

Check out what others are saying...
  1. […] Then there’s US Congressman Alan Grayson who asked the FL Supreme Court to order a statewide moratorium on foreclosures until the FL AG’s office can put some of the perps in the pen. (here) […]
