FBI investigating possible mortgage fraud in Ingham County

Fake signatures prompt investigations

Curtis Hertel Jr., Register of Deeds for Ingham County, says that a discovery he made involving alleged fraudulent mortgage documents is now being investigated by both the Ingham County Sheriff’s Department and the FBI.

“Yes, this is, in my opinion, fraud,” Hertel said. “This is a situation where people were forging someone else’s name to a legal document to take another person’s property. That is fraud.”

As Register of Deeds, Hertel is responsible for overseeing all the documentation of property sales in the county, including mortgage assignments. Mortgage assignments are documents that transfer ownership of a mortgage from one lending company to another.

Hertel says he was tipped off to the alleged fraud when he saw a report on CBS’ 60 Minutes. That story helped unwind the Byzantine labyrinth of paper work and investments under which the mortgages were sold as investments. But now that the banks are facing down homeowners who can’t afford the payments of their mortgage agreements, they are finding that in the rush to bundle the mortgages, there were corners cut. The original paperwork is missing.

    I am ready I Vent. I really want to thank you for being so dedicated and at least giving people courage to revolt about the corruption in such a amassive scale that is being ignored, the only ones that are really pissed and getting some action (legally), THEY ALREADY HAVE MONEY. Notice they are the first ones to get restitution. I see a revolution. We need to stick together and come up with a plan. I just wonder how many of the millions of victems inthis ponzi scheme include relatives of people in hight places? It has had to. Bank of America is sendind me notices of changing of investors twice a week. On top of that , a n employee of BOA told me the invester was the first one they sent me. What is so fucking hard to see that massive fraud is being committed.I am done licking my wounds and trying to deal with BOA for almost 3 yrs. Three wasted years.
    I feel so had. We innocently paid off all our s outstanding debt and bought a house with inflated price and 50K down and really excted about owning apiece of the American Dream and shorty after the nightmare began. I do not even like my house anymore and am deffenately one of the most jaded people ever! I will never trust another bank or the gov’t again.

      Thanks Allison..It is a fact that WE THE PEOPLE have been massively deceived and that was intentional and they are still doing it… These elite secret societies are working from within our Government and they are hiding behind the scenes and they do fully intend to destroy our freedom and our National Sovereignty..It i s true they want a nation of renters with the people owning nothing but the debt they create….They also want everyone working for them..The elite and their minions use many proxies to carry out their evil plans. They own the banks and they have used the banks as their robber barrons all through history. Many do not know that they also own the FEDERAL RESERVE and WALL STREET and have either bought our politicians or they are our politicians and judges and they pose as Americans and hide in plain sight within our own Government and Judiciary.. I believe we have to expose who they are, rout them out and remove them from places of power..WE THE PEOPLE CAN ALLOW NO MORE RULE BY SECRECY. WHY? BECA– USE WE PAY TAXES..WE THE PEOPLE can not allow anymore DECEPTION by them.. Do not Trust but VERIFY!!!!! .America needs a TRUE AMERICAN PATRIOT as its next leader and the people need to do their homework..People have to wake up and realize these rulling elite, this PLUTOCRACY, owns the Mainstream Media as well and the Mainstream Media is not their friend or the place to go for the truth…I am glad you love this country and our freedom like I do Allison and refuse to believe their lies.. WE THE PEOPLE can do this INDIVISIBLE….The sooner the American people realize the U.S. Government is not their friend and not to trust what they are doing but verify who they are and what they are doing the better for all. God Bless America!!!! We will overcome this tyranny!!!!!!

    It is about time the FBI got involved. THESE CRIMINALS “KITED” TRILLIONS OF DEBT AND THEN THEY CREATED TRILLIONS IN WEALTH OFF OF THAT KITE AND THEN STOLE THE MONEY THEY MADE OFF OF THAT DEBT THEY CREATED. THEY LEFT THE AMERICAN PEOPLE HOLDING THE BAG OF DEBT THEY CREATED.

    • l vent says:

      Maybe We The People should ALL at once KITE a few trillion in CHECK FRAUD and REVOLT ON THE TAXES NATIONWIDE. That could be our own FORM OF JUSTICE for the CRIMINALS, MAYBE THAT IS WHAT WE NEED HERE IN AMERICA IS WE THE PEOPLE, INDIVISIBLE, JOINING TOGETHER IN OUR OWN FORM OF VIGILANTE JUSTICE FOR THE CRIMINALS THAT SCREWED THE AMERICAN PEOPLE. If the UNITED STATES OF AMERICAN IS NOW A NATION WHERE LAWS PROTECT ONLY THE CRIMINALS, THEN SCREW IT, LE’T’S JOIN ‘EM!!! THAT IS HOW WE CAN GET THE MISSING PENSION MONEY AND WEALTH RETURNED TO THE PEOPLE. LET’S TURN THE TABLES ON THE FINANCIAL TERRORISTS! WE ARE NOW LIVIVNG UNDER THE LAW OF THE JUNGLE.

  5. Mad as hell in Maryland says:

    FINALLY! This has been going on for years now. I believe that the short piece on 60 minutes has started to FORCE government to do something. Slowly but surely. I wish that someone in the Maryland Attorney General’s office, or FBI would get involved here. Maybe its only a matter of time? (Or just wishful thinking on my part) CHALLENGE EVERYTHING! They do NOT have originals, so do NOT have rights to enforce a photocopy of anything.
    Anyway, its about time.

    Good luck to all! Fight the fight. Justice will prevail in the end.

    I don’t think its too late. There is no statute of limitation when fraud is present. Whatever u do, do NOT abandon your home or fight. If u leave they plow thru it like a fresh field for planting. Never quit. Appeals may be the only option but cases are won in appeals —at least some one has some wits about them. Its hard NOT to see the fraud so the civil judges are doing the very best they can to still turn a blind eye to it all. Which is against the foreclosure bench books written rules. But what do they care its only about clearing the dockets and eliminating the fraud. For all the lower judges who allow judgements and are later over turned, there should be sanctions in place from those judges to convince them to make intelligent decisions based on fact –not on what was fact and now is pure fiction. The banks are the evil ones. They are the crooked corrupt greedy ones. Not the homeowner who was swindled from the inception. I bet I can this with certainty–i bet We the people won’t be signing any thing with the banks with out our own representation ever again as long as we live right!? I know I willl never use the banks for a loan ever again. I will only use private lenders or credit unions. The banks are the devil. Pull your money out now before they levy that too. The devil got the bankers and the insurers in one swoop. Never seen anything as rotten to the core as this. God please help us now–the ones still trying to do the right thing. The corruption and greed runs deep. How far are we are going to allow this to fester??

    • James Aitken says:

      Debi J,

      The ONLY WAY to win this fight is to UNITE! Remember “United” States?

      I have been defending homeowners for years. Hours of time on the phone hearing the banksters BULLSHIT. I am over it and ready to form a large group and fight!

      Let us kick the scum out of washington and put this great country back to its great power and respect.

      WE THE PEOPLE MUST TAKE THIS COUNTRY BACK, and soon!

    Now that all of these fake robo signers and the people who notarized the false documents are saying that they were clueless is the time to tell them ,’IGNORANCE OF THE LAW IS NO EXC– USE”. If you and I did that we would be in Federal Prison. You know the notary knew that he/she was committing a crime as no documents were produced to show who the robo signer was. You know the robo signers knew that they weren’t qualified to sign legal documents. Now, they are coming forward with all of these stories because they know they have committed crimes. Once the FBI gets ahold of some of the major players they will start singing to save their sorry selves. That is when the truth will come out. Do you know that some managers in these forelosure mills were given BMWs to speed the fake signings? And all of the people who lost there homes to $10.00 an hour crooks should be outraged.

      For the love of God, these criminals FORGED the COPIES of THE NOTES and THE MORTGAGES!!!! Remember the movie “Catch Me If You Can.”? It was with Leonardo DiCaprio and it was all based on a true story about the FBI chasing a check FORGER. Later after he was caught, he went to work for the FBI. . All of the FORGERIES are clear proof that all of the FORECLOSURE FRAUD is the half-assed attempt to cover up for the ORIGINATION FRAUD. Clear proof that these criminals used FORECLOSURE FRAUD to cover up for the FRAUDULENT INDUCEMENT OF THE FAKE MORTGAGE DEBT at the ORIGINATION. MERS was the cover up for the SECURITIES FRAUD. RESCIND OUR FAKE MORTGAGE CONTRACTS. THOSE FAKE LOANS ARE WERE NO MORE THAN A BIG LIE AND A GIANT SWINDLE TO GET HOMEOWNERS TO PARTICIPATE IN THEIR PONZI SCHEME.. OUR HOMES ARE PAID FOR FREE AND CLEAR BECA– USE OF THE PONZI SCHEME.

        These foreign eliteist, multinational villains have had the entire country on the credit float for decades and we never knew it. All they did was create alot of wealth for themselves and their greedy friends off of alot of SPECULATING, SECURTIZATION FRAUD,SHORT SELLING SCAMS, INSIDER TRADING, BASICALLY just alot of CAPITALIST CRONYISM and none of them had any skin in the games they played with our economy. The financially ROBBED, RAPED AND PILLAGED and basically screwed all of the rest of us. They used FRAUD ON TOP OF FRAUD to create over 100 trillion in wealth for themselves and it was intentional. The result is now the whole UNITED STATES OF AMERICA is ONE GIANT PONZI SCHEME runaway train headed for disaster because of it. They fully intend to BANKRUPT THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA.

    THE FBI ALSO NEEDS TO CHECK OUT DAKOTA COUNTY, MINNESOTA. MY FAKE ROBOB SIGNER WAS ALONZO GREEN-NOTARY JIMMY CHAU. Assignement of mortgage done 2 months after I was served LIS PENDENS BY A BANK THAT DOES NOT HAVE STANDING TO FORECLOSE. THE FIRST PAGE OF THE ASSINMENT SAID IT WAS DONE IN NOVEMBER 2007. IT IS FRAUD AND AN ECONOMIC CRIME. WE ALL NEED TO KEEP FIGHTING-PPO-PERSISTENCE AND PERSEVERANCE PAYS OFF!!!!!!!! IMPROPER ASSIGNMENT OF MORTGAGE, FAKE ROBO SIGNER WITH NO ID PRODUCED AND NO WITNESS-FRAUD, FRAUD, FRAUD.

    I called the White Collar Crimes Division of the FBI last fall about the mortgage fraud in my FAKE, FRAUDLENT home loan and in my FAKE, FRAUDULENT commercial property loan. The FBI even asked me if I was talking about the ORIGINATION FRAUD. They told me they were overwhelmed with calls and would get back to me. I think it is time the FBI came onto the scene of the crime. I know that the MORTGAGE FRAUD IS RAMPANT but something has to be done to stop the ILLEGAL AND UNCONSTITUTIONAL FRAUDCLOSURES.The AG’S are acting like COWARDS along with ALL OF THE POLITICIANS. The ATTORNEYS DO NOT WANT TO REPRESENT WE THE PEOPLE. The Judges are clearly demonstrating an UNCONSTITUTIONAL CONFLICT OF INTEREST IN THE COURTROOMS. If someone with some legal authority does not do something to protect the WE THE PEOPLE, from these criminals who robbed us, this is going to get really ugly.
