Fro m the Deposition of TAMMIE LOU KAPUSTA

12:11 p.m. – 1:58 p.m.
September 22, 2010
Office of the Attorney General
110 Southeast 6th Street, 10th Floor
Fort Lauderdale, Florida 33301

19 A So at that point there was a huge meeting in
20 the building by Beverly McComas and Miriam Mendieta who
21 were the controlling attorneys there. Basically we were
22 told if anyone sent out an assignment with the dates not
23 being the same on them that they would be fired
24 immediately.
25 Q Why would the dates on the other ones have
1 been three different dates? What would cause that?
2 A Poor practice, not paying attention, not
3 knowing that it was supposed to be that way from the
4 initiation. Basically they didn’t train us to do it.
5 You have people just typing in. Their being honest and
6 tying in this date as the date as being assigned but it
7 was executed six months ago. The dates would be
8 different for that. The issue became then the notary
9 would sign it tomorrow and date it tomorrow.
10 Q So those attorneys knew this was going on?
11 A Yes.
12 Q Can you give me the names of the attorneys
13 that knew?
14 A Every attorney in the firm.
15 Q What do you mean every attorney in the firm?
16 A Well, Beverly McComas.
17 Q Can you spell that, please.
18 A M-C-C-O-M-A-S, I believe and Miriam Mendieta
19 were the controlling attorneys.
20 Q They were the controlling attorneys?
21 A Correct. They controlled the attorneys and
22 Cheryl controlled the paralegals and anybody else.
23 Q Okay.
24 A So they would inform the attorneys what they
25 wanted. They happened to be at the meeting for the
1 assignments. They pulled us in by team since there were
2 so many of us and told us this is what it needs to be.
3 They got in trouble for it and this is what needs to be
4 happening now. Make sure that the date that it was
5 supposed to be executed is the same date that you’re
6 signing it even though it could have been six months ago
7 and Cheryl is signing it today.
8 Q But make the dates match?
9 A Correct.
10 Q Regardless of the date it is today?
11 A Correct.
12 Q Okay. And that’s the same for the notary?
13 A Correct.
14 Q And the date printed on it?
15 A Correct.
16 Q And the date that’s actually typed in?
17 A Correct.
18 Q Make sure they’re all the same no matter what
19 day it is?
20 A Correct.
21 Q The two lead lawyers, what was their title?
22 Were they senior attorneys?
23 A No. They didn’t really have a title. Most
24 people were just afraid of them.
25 Q Why is that?
1 A Because they were mean and nasty. They were
2 very mean.
3 Q In what way?
4 A They would demean you. They would yell and
5 scream at you.
6 Q Condescending?
7 A Oh yeah. They would make you look like an ass
8 in front of the entire firm.

22 When it got really sticky there were a lot of us that
23 weren’t here.
24 Q What does really sticky mean?
25 A They wanted us to start changing the documents
1 and stuff and doing stuff that we weren’t supposed to be
2 doing as far as service.
3 Q What documents did they want you to change?
4 A Manpower documents. A lot of judges started
5 requiring, because of the Jane and John Doe issues,
6 required that you have a military search for all the
7 defendants. If you named a Jane and John Doe as an NKA
8 you had to pull a military search on them. Unless you
9 have somebody’s social security number technically you
10 can’t pull a military search supposedly.
11 The program that we used for the program that
12 we used, you could put in the main defendant’s social
13 security and John or Jane Doe’s name and it would give
14 us a military search saying that they were in the
15 military.
16 Q You would get their social security number
17 because the bank documents contained it?
18 A Correct. The lenders, the referrals had the
19 socials.
20 Q Did you put the social in on everybody to find
21 out their address for service?
22 A Not everybody. I personally did not do it
23 because I refused to do it. I wasn’t going to falsify a
24 military document. I was told that that’s fine,
25 somebody else on your team will do it.
1 Q What do you mean falsify a military document?
2 A Well, I’m using the main defendant’s social
3 security number on somebody else’s name, not his name.
4 John Doe and the main defendant was James, I was taking
5 James’ social security number and putting John Doe’s
6 name in there. I wasn’t but that’s what the practice
7 was. The judges started saying we’re not going to
8 consider service completed until —
9 Q There’s a miliary search?
10 A Correct.
11 Q So why wouldn’t they use the right social
12 security number for the right person?
13 A Because you don’t have a social for an NKA or
14 unknown tenant. They wouldn’t enter a final judgement
15 unless the military doc was there.
16 Q So you just used anybody’s?
17 A Correct.
18 Q Did Stern know about that practice?
19 A Do I know if he knew personally, no. I can
20 tell you that Beverly and Miriam sent emails to the
21 attorneys telling them that that is what to be done and
22 if the paralegals would not do it then they are
23 responsible for doing it. That wasn’t an option.

Full Deposition below…

And this just in from Michael O…

It gets better…

One of the ways we find inter-connections between parties is through addresses.  They’ll often use different company names, different titles, but the same address.  Nobody works at the office of “Foreclosure Review Services.”  It’s a “virtual office”  a mail-stop with some conference rooms and/or offices you can rent by the hour.

Not only did they hire the head of Stern’s law firm to review foreclosure files, the “firm” is based in the corporate equivalent of a no-tell motel.

UPDATE: Email from FRS’ Founder

Please note Miriam Mendieta is NOT leading the review of 4.5 million review cases. The headline was not crafted as it should be. The press release was an accouncement for the company offering its services. I’m sure your readers will appreciate the distinction.

  1. Foreclosure Review Services (FRS) has not been contracted by any of the independent consultants conducting independent foreclosure reviews required by the consent orders issued by the OCC in April. The OCC and Federal Reserve reviewed independent consultant and subcontractors for conflicts of interest prior to approval. FRS was neither proposed nor reviewed.

  2. Tim says:

    they were not hired to “lead” the review. They were merely advertising their services. Unfortunately it was misunderstood and the press release poorly worded.

    • Equity Free says:

      Regardless its a farce , review the fraud again, and again and come up with a truthful result , that the
      35 k a year family really could pay back that 300 K loan he was given . My mind says arrest the lenders
      & stop the BS , I’m fed up with the money we are spending on polishing the turd Wall Street created .
      Occupy until this shit gets flushed …

  3. Mary, Newt Gingrich said about the Occupy Wall Street: Stop whining, take a bath and get a job. these are our politicians in America now

    • CaitlinOcgom says:

      He also wants to repeal child labor laws so 10 year olds can work as janitors in their schools and the unionized janitorial staff can be fired.

      There has to be a dedicated circle in hell for Repugnantcans.

    Ron Paul Revolution 2012 Please watch this video. I know October has past, but the video is great.

  5. j. Alonzo says:

    We The People are forced to run with a pack of Wolves. You must be one to survive. Its very clear that crime does pay for big corporate America. They only prosecute the Sheeple. Ron Paul revolution 2012 Freeeeedooom!

  6. Mary says:

    Okay NOW i’m done:)

  7. Mary says:

    And by the way…. Those who have worked hard all their lives and played by the rules and have become wealthy by doing so are to be commended and not penalized. (I don’t think I spelled that correctly 🙂 Fairness is all that is asked. This whole taxing my income ,then taxing my purchases, and then taxing my business is out if control. Can I just say….. Isn’t this why we left England in the first place? This and religous persecution.

    And why do I have to call myself a democrat or a rebublican to be taken seriously? I’m not a progressive either. I AM AN AMERICAN!!!!

    And I REALLY want to be proud of that fact again.

    • lies is all they tell says:

      also please watch the zeigeist addendum on you tube and please all google birth certificates/federal

      reserve we are all pissed yes i am one those you speak about worked hard all my life 12 hour shifts as an RN for wells fargo to lie on my mortgage application in 2006 to approve me for a 200k mortgage i could never afford on my own. my HUSBAND WAS UNEMPLOYED and they left him of the note i guess to make my mortgage have a better rating . lets not forget the appraisal fraud , and the 2009-current modification fraud. losing paper work moving files. i have written every one occ, pam bimbo, senators, congressman. do you think i have gotten one one ounce of help????? all i get is every entity telling me they forwared my corespondence with wells fargo. thats reminds me of an analogy….lets see………… the gingerbreadman taking the ride on the alligator and then was eaten. i am so sad to be going through this, if only when i applied for a mortgage there were standards. like verifying income. a single person can only qualify for a certain amount on one salary (mortgage not more than unemployment) what were they all thinking.

  8. Mary says:

    One more thing:) Since I’m in the venting mood. Do a citizen a favor CNN and all the cohorts. Why don’t you show an interview with a KNOWLEDGABLE person at any occupy event. There are quite a few of them. You know….the ones who lost their homes to the wall street insider trading of securities. The ones who are trying to get an education to better themselves only to be told they can’t afford it. The ones who worked hard their ENTIRE life for what they have only to have it taken away by some criminal scum from the banking system who took all of their retirement by seducing them into investing in mortgage backed securities. The ones who have everything taken away from them because they were unlucky enough to get cancer and can’t afford medical insurance. (medical treatment being so damned inflated by the corporations) To put it simply…..CORRUPTION!!!!!! Thats why they are out there. Thats why they have so many supporters and are getting more every day. THATS THE MESSAGE! What are there demands? Well I’ll tell you mine. STOP THE CORRUPTION!!! CLEAN HO– USE!!! PUT THOSE RESPONSIBLE IN JAIL!!!! STOP THE BLAME GAME SMOKE AND MIRRORS WITH THE DEMS AND REPUBLICANS!!!! ( you BOTH are at fault here) STOP ILLEGALLY FORECLOSING ON HOMES THAT YOU DO NOT OWN!!! WE ALL know what happened and how it got to this point. See inside job. More people educating each other:). Where are the watch dogs you ask? Guess what? WE are the watch dogs And you can bet I won’t be sleeping on the job!

  9. Mary says:

    I would also like to add…..the media ,whos many advertisers are the big banks, are a crock!!! There is no such thing as fair and unbiased reporting. It’s a circus out there. More smoke and mirrors. The ONLY way to find out the truth is researching it yourself.

  10. Mary says:

    To Martin LOL…so true!!! This is way beyond ridiculous!!! Are there ANY government agencies that are NOT corrupt at this point? And they wonder…”whats up with this occupy thing?”. Well let me tell you its just going to get bigger and bigger until we ALL wake the hell up! They believe if they use smoke and mirrors to distract us we will all go peacefully on our way. NOT going to happen!!!!!!! They (the powers that be) have been trying to dumb us down for quite some time now. Well its time we schooled each other on the realities of what this country has become. All this from a very simple woman who up until a few months ago truly believed in her government. I just lived my life knowing that our elected officials would do the right thing. I had know idea that while I kept my head in the sand the vast majority of our elected officials would sell us out. Well I’m up now. And I believe I’ll do a little housecleaning. I’ve been neglecting my duties for far too long.

  11. Oh big deal. What’s a little robo-signing? Dot an ‘i’… cross a ‘t’. What difference does it make at this point anyway? The judges are fine with the robo-signing so why fight it.

    Want to know what I’m doing now? Every time I write a check, I have someone new sign my name. Signatures are so 1990s anyway.

  12. Fred Grift says:

    Conflict of interest. Be pioneers Floridians – are you going to let them get away with this?
