The culprit, Ms. Ash soon learned, was not a burglar but her bank. According to a federal lawsuit filed in October by Ms. Ash, Bank of America had wrongfully foreclosed on her house and thrown out her belongings, without alerting Ms. Ash beforehand.

    “MBIA’s suit against Bank of America and its Countrywide unit is one of at least 12 claims brought by insurers in state and federal courts targeting issuers of mortgage-backed securities, including Deutsche Bank AG, Credit Suisse and GMAC Mortgage LLC. Government-owned mortgage companies Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, and bond investors such as MetLife Inc., are also pursuing repurchase demands from originators of the securities.”

  3. A recent newspaper report stated BofA was settling a foreclosure fraud (I believe it was) case, giving thirty-two million dollars to fifteen thousand people. That works out to a little over 2k per person.

    That is insufficient to the point of cruelty! The banks need to replace everything they have stolen! Every. Single. Thing! and pay damages, rent, property taxes, utilities, hotel bills, and every other expense the home’s rightful owner had to pay.
    House payments the homeowner made, while being told modification was coming soon: All on the bank!

    The way the banks have been behaving is not only illegal, but UnAmerican, too!

    Banks only admit to wrongdoing after protracted legal battles, and only when it is clear to them they have no other options. That isn’t what I consider to be an admission at all.
