KaPoW | FL Attorney General Launches Investigation into Ben-Ezra $ Katz for “using deceptive paperwork to foreclose; obtain attorney’s fees which become the ultimate responsibility of the homeowner/defendant and calculate the indebtness of the homeowner/defendant”
by Kim Miller
Ben-Ezra & Katz, the Fort Lauderdale law firm fired earlier this month by Fannie Mae, is now on the Florida attorney general’s list of firms under investigation.
It’s unclear when the firm was put on the attorney general’s to-do list, but it wasn’t one of the original four that received subpoenas during the summer, or three more that got letters of inquiry last fall.
Ben-Ezra & Katz didn’t escape a judge’s ire this month when she expressed her displeasure for the sloppy handling of a foreclosure case by calling Marc Ben-Ezra into court for a scolding.
Well well well…
Looks like another bad day for Ben-Ezra $ Katz.
Just a couple of hours ago, we learned that Ben-Ezra’s Brokers’ Floridian Title Corp Abruptly Laid Off 36 employees after they lost their contract with Fannie Mae.
Now there is this from the Florida Attorney General’s Office…
“Law firm/using deceptive paperwork to foreclose; obtain attorney’s fees which become the ultimate responsibility of the homeowner/defendant and calculate the indebtness of the homeowner/defendant.”
I wonder if it has anything to do with this?
Ouch, that’s gotta sting…
