Woman in Cape faces loan nightmare
Paula Dobberstein’s story starts out like so many others who are in foreclosure.
And unfortunately, it looks like it’s ending up like many others, too – with attorneys for the banks and mortgage companies using falsified documents and fabrications to deny homeowners’ rights.
“This is the most horrible thing I’ve been through in my life,” she said.
In 2007 Dobberstein took out a $544,000 loan to refinance her Cape Coral home. The interest rate on the loan was 8.375 percent and her monthly mortgage payment was $2,149.46.
Soon after, Dobberstein, a registered nurse, took a $10-an-hour pay cut, she said. She can rattle off all the loan modifications and foreclosure prevention programs she tried but failed to get.
