Dear State Attorney Dennis Ward and Chief Investigator/Assistant State Attorney Mark Wilson,

I am a concerned citizen who is responding to your request for potentially questionable documents that have been filed in the 16th Judicial Circuit in regards to real estate fraud in general, and the Marshall Watson foreclosure mill attorney robosigners in particular.

Using the electronic database and search capabilities provided to me by Legalprise’s founder, Michael Olenick, I was able compile a listing of all assignments of mortgage recorded in Monroe County’s official records which were executed by the attorneys at the Law Office of Marshall Watson in 2008, 2009, and 2010.

Providing insight into the authenticity of the real estate and property conveyance documents flowing from the Marshall Watson foreclosure mill is an assignment of mortgage recorded in Palm Beach County on January 2, 2009, book/page 23016/1133.  This legal document apparently was intended to be executed by Patricia Arango.  Her signature is suspiciously absent, yet her execution of this document was witnessed and notarized.  This activity is highly suggestive of a real estate document sweat shop mill as has been widely exposed in the mainstream media, and is indicative of violations of Florida Statute 817.545 (2)(d):

A person commits the offense of mortgage fraud if, with the intent to defraud, the person knowingly, files or causes to be filed with the clerk of the circuit court for any county of this state a document involved in the mortgage lending process which contains a material misstatement, misrepresentation, or omission.

The statute goes on in section 5(a) and 5(b):

Any person who violates subsection (2) commits a felony of the third degree, punishable as provided in section 775.082, section 775.083, or section 775.084.

Any person who violates subsection (2) and the loan value stated on documents stated on documents used in the mortgage lending process exceeds 100,000 dollars commits a felony of the second degree punishable as provided in section 775.082, section 775.083, or section 775.084.

Review of all Monroe County Assignments of Mortgage recorded between 1/1/2008 and 12/31/2010

Total Number of Assignments Executed by Arango or Graham – 137

Arango – 63

Graham -74

I would also like to call to your attention The Florida Bar News article dated 2/1/2011, Free Bar Foreclosure CLE Ready for Download, which enumerates the specific Rules of Professional Conduct that apply to foreclosure fraud, and if enforced, would protect the citizens of Florida as these Rules were intended.  Unfortunately, the Florida Bar ethics opinion only addresses foreclosure fraud committed by foreclosure mill law firm clients and then how the foreclosure mill must appropriately respond to the fraud that has been perpetrated upon Florida’s courts, property records, and citizens.  What is missing from this article is direction from the Florida Bar to address the same frauds committed by foreclosure mill attorneys.

Thank you for being one of the few elected officials to be willing protect and represent the people who elected him/her to office as opposed to turning a blind eye towards a crime that would be harshly punished if committed by ordinary citizens who are not employees of banks, debt collector mortgage servicers, document fabrication shops, and foreclosure mill outfits.

Sincerely,

GR

Dear Mr. Wilson & Mr. Ward,

I am a data analyst.  My focus for the past several years has been foreclosures, which — due to problematic patterns I noticed in my data — on foreclosure fraud.  Results of my various studies have been cited in the national media, the Congressional Oversight Panel charged with overseeing the Troubled Asset Relief Program (TARP), by the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), as well as private attorneys.

I have several databases, but have published an easy-to-use version of the official records databases on my website, www.findthefraud.com.  The data is identical to that on various county websites, except it is easier to sort, especially when researching patterns of foreclosure fraud.  I am happy to explain why this is so if you’re interested, though in the interest of brevity will skip the technical details.  If you’d like to know, though, please do not hesitate to contact me.

On request from several researchers I enabled Monroe County data, and those researchers have been using my tool to analyze records from your county.  Except to the extent that my tools made their search easier — which is the reason those electronic tools exist — I am not familiar with the results of their searching.  However, because the data is the same as the County recorders — to verify simply type in the book/page numbers cited and you’ll see that the documents are identical — the conclusions they have drawn are the same as if they simply spent (substantially) more time using the County’s own tools.

My research website, www.findthefraud.com, is public, and I’d invite you to simply sign up: you’ll see how it works.  The site is new, but we’ve categorized thousands of documents and as awareness grows we believe the patterns of fraud will reach a statistically significant “critical mass” — if they haven’t already — where we can prove the type of problems evident are not sloppy work but evidence of systematized fraud.

Again, please do not hesitate to contact me if you need more information.

Sincerely,

Michael F. Olenick
