Caught up in Mortgage Mess, Ex-Marine, Keon Williams, Single Father of Three Gets a Reprieve

Remember that “Deadbeat” Ex-Marine, Single Father of Three, Who Payed on Time, and got Foreclosed?

And, do you remember how they Changed His Locks, Illegally?

Well it looks like he just got a break, temporally at least…

However, this is still outrageous in so many ways…


Caught up in mortgage mess, Milwaukee man gets a reprieve

A six-month reprieve has been issued to Keon Williams, the north side man whose home was sold at a sheriff’s sale in January even though he was current on the only mortgage he knew he had.

The agreement filed in Circuit Court on Monday between attorneys for Williams and attorneys for Harris Bank prevents the bank from concluding its purchase and evicting Williams from the N. 44th St. home until Nov. 12.

An earlier court order preventing completion of the sheriff’s sale was to expire this week.

The delay provides time to try to resolve the mortgage issues swirling around Williams either through negotiations or court action.

Williams, whose dilemma was the subject of a Journal Sentinel report last month, has been teetering on the edge of eviction for months because he is caught in a vise created by the national mortgage meltdown and some fast dealings by the now-defunct Central States Mortgage Co. and an affiliated company.

    this should have been resolved immediately. the banksters steal from any and every one. and the fn useless judges do nothing. so what is the job of the judge? evict his ass off the bench. God Bless America! praying for you all.

    the sad thing is that both the ex-marine and ms. lennon in rochester only have a temporary reprieve. how about a permanent one?

    we need a full moratorium on foreclosure and full restitution.
    our economy will never recover unless
    the victims are made whole.

    So let’s make the borrower repay that which he’s already repaid through refinancing. Someone walked with the money leaving him the piker.
    It’s kind of like buying a hot car, only you don’t know the car is hot until it’s too late. You’ve borrowed the money, paid the possessor, took possession of the hot car. Only to find you’re a rube. The car is confiscated and returned to the owners, and you’re still still on the ropes having to pay back the money you’ve borrowed.
    That’s what title insurance is supposed to cover, a clear title. It’s obvious through the contortion he’s been through with all of the banksters the house he supposedly is buying had a clouded title to start with, and he was
    sucked right in with a plan of failure already placed in his file. Sell that house, foreclose, rinse and repeat as many times as possible before the scam goes south.

    Are you kidding me this is pretty much a no brainer.Why would you evict a service member and single father of 3?Did the banks give him a choice about going to a different country to fight to keep this country that these banks exsist in free?Am I missing something here?This ia a rep. that all banks must be in competition for first grandmothers and now service members with children?How much more does it take before someone steps to the plate and says enough is enough.Ridiculous antics performed by even more ridiculous people.
