Company Faces Forgery Charges in Mo. Foreclosures

One of the largest companies that provided home foreclosure services to lenders across the nation, DocX, has been indicted on forgery charges by a Missouri grand jury — one of the few criminal actions to follow reports of widespread improprieties against homeowners.

A grand jury in Boone County, Mo., handed up an indictment Friday accusing DocX of 136 counts of forgery in the preparation of documents used to evict financially strained borrowers from their homes. Lorraine O. Brown, the company’s founder and former president, was indicted on the same charges.

Employees of DocX, a unit of Lender Processing Services of Jacksonville, Fla., executed and notarized millions of mortgage documents for big banks and loan servicers over the years. Lender Processing closed the company in April 2010, after evidence emerged of apparent forgeries in these documents, a practice now called robo-signing.

Chris Koster, the Missouri attorney general, will prosecute the case. “The grand jury indictment alleges that mass-produced fraudulent signatures on notarized real estate documents constitutes forgery,” Mr. Koster said in a statement. “Today’s indictment reflects our firm conviction that when you sign your name to a legal document, it matters.”

Mr. Koster said his office’s investigation was continuing. This suggests he may hope to persuade Ms. Brown to cooperate in his investigation of the parent company. If convicted, Ms. Brown could face up to seven years in prison for each forgery count. DocX could be fined up to $10,000 for each forgery conviction.

Chris Rosenblum, a lawyer at Rosenblum, Schwartz, Rogers & Glass who represents DocX said: “We have not had an opportunity to review the indictment at this point. The company intends to enter a plea of not guilty.”

According to the indictment, Ms. Brown acted “knowingly in concert with DocX and its employees” to mislead and defraud the Boone County recorder of deeds. The documents central to the indictments were deeds of release, which eliminate a previous claim on an asset. Such releases are typically issued when a mortgage has been paid off.

Phone messages left at Ms. Brown’s home and with her lawyer were not returned Monday evening.

Since evidence of pervasive foreclosure improprieties emerged, state officials have mostly brought civil suits against the institutions and law firms that filed the fraudulent documents. Individuals in Nevada, for example, have been charged with notary fraud, but beyond that matter, criminal cases arising from foreclosure practices have been uncommon.

The Missouri grand jury found that the person whose name appeared on 68 documents executed on behalf of a lender — someone named Linda Green — was not the person who had signed the papers. The documents were submitted to the Boone County recorder of deeds as though they were genuine, Mr. Koster said.

A recent civil lawsuit against Lender Processing by the attorney general of Nevada found that former workers at one of its divisions had described their work as “surrogate signers.” One worker who was quoted in the complaint said she had been paid $11 an hour and told that her job was “to sign somebody else’s signature on documents.” The person said she had signed roughly 2,000 documents a day for months, according to the lawsuit.

In addition to deed releases, DocX surrogate signers routinely executed assignments of mortgage, which reflect changes in ownership.

The indictment is only the latest legal assault on the company and its parent, Lender Processing. In August 2011, American Home Mortgage Servicing, a large loan servicer, sued Lender Processing contending that more than 30,000 residential mortgages that it had handled across the country contained “improper execution, notarization and recording of assignments of mortgage.” DocX executed such paperwork for American Home from April 2008 through November 2009, the lawsuit said.

Last April, Lender Processing signed a consent order with the nation’s top financial regulators, agreeing to remediate improperly executed mortgage documents and to correct its default business practices. Michelle Kersch, a Lender Processing spokeswoman, said recently that the company now executed documents “with stringent controls in place” to ensure compliance with all rules.

    PLEASE HELP. Thank you for posting a copy of the Missouri indictment against DOCX. As for the supposed separate indictmentg against Lorraine O. Brown, Gretchen Morgenson’s NYT article gives a link to it in her NYT piece, but I am not able to open and read it. Nor could I find it in any oter media source, or the Missouri AG’s web site. Does anyone know how to access this separate indictment? I’d like to read it.

  4. any help please says:

    Can anyone cite any cases in Florida where homeowners were able to acquire their homes and cancel their debt (mortgages) due to paperwork irregularities in the processing (including assignment) of their mortgages?

    I have been defending my foreclosure for 40+ months on a pro se basis versus real lawyers. This makes me think that the reason they have not been able to foreclose on me is because they know of some serious deal breaker problem. I just don’t know what it is. Any thoughts?

    Maybe our AG’s will reconsider their example of “CRIMINAL” procedures for a price. Is that forgery csalled a crim in a setting of pure Attorney Generals? or “PROSTITUTION”?

    These orders came from the top. The banksters ordered all this. They don’t own these notes and robbed people of their homes. Yet nothing is done to them. Some if not MOST of the judges in the state level know very well that this is whats going on. Yet summary judgment is given on all these loans with fake documents. I should try and sue my neighbor for his house and just have the paper work done online, the way the banks do it. If I get caught doing that, I would get thrown in federal prison for ever! Made an example of. The only ones that can do fraud are the Banksters and their friends. The sheeple get raped and pillaged!

    We are all doomed if we follow the Gov’t. criminals. Become Sovereign. Declare your allegiance to God almighty.
    The US govt is a criminal group.

      • Shemp Stooge says:

        Ridiculous, Some of our best defenders happen to be of one religion or the other. I’m confused – LPS is based in the Sunshine state – why don’t you riff raff encourage Bondi do to something? – help her out with evidence? Force her to do what she was hired to do? Make sure every Floridian gets a fair shake? Make sure the poor aren’t slammed into the ground? etc

      • wonton says:

        Encourage Bondi I have called her office for over a year and Clarkson helped me and she got fired
        Bondi is on the payroll not only of the governments listen we have to clean house we have to take back our power this is just the beginning it is a warning stop listening to the government they sent our kids to worthless wars , they are corrupt it has to start now let’s not just talk about it have to take ACTION get Bondi out she is in on the whole thing I was told to call her for something and she did not help me Clarkson did and look what happened….

    • wonton says:

      BTW Patrick don’t use faceook it is owned by a Jew don’t use anything that was created by Einstein what
      about all the contributions we have made human nature is something that is inbreed good and bad in everything …..please think as unity otherwise we will get back as humans to become separated again we all
      need to stick together and stand up to all of this crap

  10. lvent says:

    The orders came from the top so that means, they ALL need to go to prison. NO ONE is above the law. Who ordered the fraud…???? They must ALL be held accountable. A fifth grader, would know that signing someone else’s signature is wrong. There is no excuse for any of them.. They are all lousy, filthy dirty criminals and traitors! One act of forgery is a class 3 felony in my state…punishable with up to 3-7 years in prison…3 felonies = life in prison…WHERES THE CUFFS..????

    • lvent says:

      Where’s the STATES ATTORNEYS..?? THE FBI,,?? THESE ARE FEDERAL CRIMES..!! THIS IS SERIOUS…A LOT MORE SERIOUS THAN JUST LOUSY SLAP ON THE WRIST FINES FOR DECEIVING THE MASSES! THAT IS HOW THEY COMMITTED THE MASSIVE FRAUD…DECEPTIVE PRACTICES AND UNFAIR DEALING…LIES AND FRAUD…BUT THE ACTUAL CRIMES THEY COMMITTED BY USING THESE TACTICS…WERE FEDERAL CRIMES…ROBO-SIGNING IS A FEDERAL CRIME OF FORGERY…..WHERE THE F**K ARE THE COPS????

    • tnp says:

      You r correct, but in America, you play by two sets of rules.
      Its a shame to see folks doing the same crimes, but one gets punished and the other ones dont.
      Maybe I should have encouraged my son to set his sights on high-level paper crimes and not hangout in the lower troughs of crime. He would have been richer and not facing imprisonment over two forged checks. Just being sarcastic–whoever said crime doesnt pay doesnt know anything about the biggest financial fraud in world history–FRAUDCLOSURES!!!
