    i find it really compelling that the Register of Deeds of Greensboro NC
    has taken a stand against the fraud that has been committed violating property law.

    in a different era, brave young men stood up against segregation in Greenboro ,NC and refused to leave a lunch counter at woolworth’s.

    the old woolworth’s has now been made into a museum for civil rights.

    just like the lunch counter protest, maybe Jeff Thigpen’s standing up will spread across the country like wildfire.

    can you imagine the power if EVERY Register of Deeds brought forth the fraud that is in their counties?
    it would be awesome.

      jeff thigpen and other register of deeds,
      don’t let the banks refile and try to whitewash their fraud!
      don’t do it!

    “the borrowers who deliberately lied to obtain financing” Believe me, our ‘friendly citizen supporting Government’ is looking all over this. There is still a relentless class oriented push to penalize the lower hanging fruit – the borrower. Executives at Fannie Mae are relentlessly punishing borrowers, to cover their own asses.
    I don’t know of any who “deliberately lied” other then true scam artists who were into flipping, gentrification or perhaps working for the benefit of Banks, Realtors, Title Companies and so on. When this bubble was in full inflation everyone was lying. I don’t like your comment – it implies punishment is needed for the victims, which just continues the insanity.

    Thank you & God Bless Jeff Thigpen -the time & diligent work required to compile these stats is outstanding!
    I’m going to sent this report to my Local Property Appraisers Office, Florida Ag Bondi, and my Attorney.
    Please everyone send this to your local agencies, newspaper Editors, and everyone you can think of.
    Perhaps we could send this report to Judges too ???
    I have been fighting over two 1/2 years-hoping to save my home and clear this up before my 84 yr old Mother
    goes to heaven.
    Just this morning she was diagnosed with 90 % chance of lung cancer this morning !
    She does not even smoke.
    This foreclosure fraud from hell stress is a cancer eating away at all of us. God help us all. God Bless America

      • Catherine Mc Manus says:

        thank you Maggie-keep up the fight-never lose hope !
        I just emailed this news article to my County Clerk, Property Appraiser and several others.
        Now I will send it to Florida Ag. Pam Bondi-not that she will ever see it or care even if she does.
        I do believe that every tad of Info we share helps to let authorities know there are good ones like Jeff Thigpen doing what is right !

    Ben-Ezra & Katz were BIG — USERS OF DOCX>
    As reported in the Palm Beach Post Blog,

    The Fort Lauderdale-based Ben-Ezra & Katz law firm gave layoff notices today to 146 employees as it moves toward shutting down its foreclosure operations, a spokesman for the company confirmed. An additional 8 employees will be laid off from the firm’s title company.

    The firm will remain open as a boutique real estate firm.

    Earlier this year, the firm had nearly 600 employees, but has been decimated following the loss of foreclosure business from federal mortgage backer Fannie Mae. Fannie Mae fired the firm in February citing “execution issues” in foreclosure proceedings.

    The shutdown is the second collapse of a South Florida foreclosure law firm, following the March 31 closing of the Law Offices of David J. Stern.

    A spokesman for Ben-Ezra & Katz said the firm intends to make an orderly transfer of all of its files to new foreclosure attorneys.

    Chase Home Finance, which also cut ties with Ben-Ezra, was ordered by a judge earlier this month to pay a $4 million surety bond to get its foreclosure cases back. Ben-Ezra & Katz says Chase owes it $6.2 million in legal fees.

    I have been engaged with these lying fraudsters “Ben-Ezra&Katz” since Oct 2008. And along with a smoking hot DOCX assignment of mortgage”filed 8 months after the foreclosure suit was filed” the original note “that I have not seen” was found a few months after the suit that had a lost note count attached. It took almost a year “after they dropped lost note count” for this to arrive at the court house.
    The judge was wise enough to notice that the note was not dated as to transfer. He mentioned the problems of late and said he wanted someone to testify as to the date of transfer, and advised the attorney that they may be in trouble if it was transferred after the filing of the suit.
    So in a way I am sorry that they have pulled out completely. They were the devil I knew, and I had them on so much wrong doing.
    I imagine that another law firm will be assigned and pick it up. But maybe not.

    I guess my question is what happens now? For some reason I don’t think they are going to send out the notices required by law telling the courts and defendants that they are withdrawing from the suit.

    I cain’t believe another law firm would pick up this “my” suit as it is so tainted. I want to know whats happened to all the David Stern cases? If another firm picks it up must they file a EX PARTI motion?

    Anyone have any thoughts?

    how many counties are there is the US?
    if all of the Register of Deeds investigated like Thigpen, they would find the same fraud.

    Today is a bad day for me so my optimism is at an all time low. While we have people like Thigpen, and there are others also doing their jobs trying to protect homeowners property rights, lots and lots of people still have the attitude about the homeowner could not pay their mortgage, so why would any of this matter. They cannot get over the fact people for one reason or another could not make their mortgage payments. The inevitable was going to happen anyway, so what if there was fraud involved, these deadbeat homeowners don’t deserve their houses. Once fraud is involved to deceive the legal system, then whether or not I paid my mortgage becomes irrelevant im my opinion.

    The question remains, what is going to be done about this? Will the court system wake up to the fact that the deadbeat homeowners are still entitled to legal and fair treatment no matter what? Or will they still turn a blind eye? The homeowners are a lot smarter than they realized and since we decided to fight for our homes, the banks has to step up the fraud because they could not prove ownership. What about the deadbeat homeowners who already lost their homes to this type of fraud, what justice can they get?

    Someone help me believe in our country that I so dearly love. Do we really have any hope for justice? God Bless Thigpen and the others who will not settle for this type of fraud.

      I am sorry that today is a bad day for you, see says. That’s okay.

      This is a tag-team effort. At the very moment some of us get burned out–others get pumped up–and carry the torch for a while.

      Listening to the Bevilacqua oral arguments from Monday re-energized me. I think Bevilacqua is going to go “our” way–and it will be huge.

      We cannot quit fighting the good fight, that is what they want. They love victims, they hate fighters. Just think of what they did to the Jews in the Holocaust. Never give up your rights or your guns.

    God bless Jeff Thigpen, and we need more public servants like him. I am not a bit surprised that he is in the fine state of North Carolina; it is God’s country indeed. People there, for the most part, still understand things like honor, honesty, loyalty, and faithfulness to one’s duty.

    If that small grouping of homeowners’ losses amount to so many millions, it boggles the mind to think of the total dollar value of losses that have been sustained all across this country in the past four years (and then some) due to fraudulent foreclosures.

    And may all the guilty bankers and thieves join Bin Laden in hell one day to burn for eternity.

    Let’s try that again…

    Quoting from Jeff Thigpen’s blog in December 2007:

    A Franciscan Blessing

    A blessing with teeth in it….

    May God bless you with discomfort at half-truths, easy answers, and superficial relationships, so that you will live deeply and from the heart.

    May God bless you with anger at injustice, oppression, and the exploitation of people, so that you will work for justice, freedom, and peace.

    May God bless you with tears to shed for those in pain, so that you will reach out your hand to them and turn their pain into joy.

    And may God bless you with just enough foolishness to believe that you can make a difference in this old world, so that you will do those things that others say cannot be done.

    Bravo! Everyone that is involved in any part of this mess should be concerned, from the realtors who engaged in this fraud, the borrowers who deliberately lied to obtain financing, those that worked for the lenders who willingly signed the papers, the closing agents, the lawyers, the judges, the municipalities that allowed these homes to be taken based on fraudulant paperwork, Mers, the lenders. Everyone will be held accountable in time. This is exploding and that is a good thing. Justice will be served and this cannot be covered up any longer..the Truth is out now. A line in the sand has been drawn and now every individual must decide which side they will serve.. the Truth or the Lie. This decision will affect them for the rest of their lives.

In this case, A FOREIGN FASCIST TYRANNY. DEATH TO THE FOREIGN MULTINATIONAL FASCIST TYRANNY!!!!. God Bless America!!!
