UNSEALED COMPLAINT | United States of America v. Bank of America NA – Whistleblower Says BofA Defrauded HAMP

Whistleblower Says BofA Defrauded HAMP

(Reuters) – Bank of America NA prevented homeowners from receiving mortgage-loan modifications under a federal program in order to avoid millions of dollars in losses while benefitting from financial incentives for participating in the program, according to a complaint unsealed in federal court Wednesday.

The complaint unsealed Wednesday was filed by whistleblower Gregory Mackler, a Colorado resident who said he worked alongside Bank of America executives while an employee at Urban Lending Solutions, a company to which Bank of America contracted some of its HAMP work.

While working at Urban Lending, Mackler said he saw BofA and its loan servicing subsidiary, BAC Homes Loans Servicing LP, implement “business practices designed to intentionally prevent scores of eligible homeowners from becoming eligible or staying eligible for permanent HAMP modification.”

The bank and its agents routinely pretended to have lost homeowners’ documents, failed to credit payments during trial modifications and intentionally misled homeowners about their eligibility for the program, the complaint alleged.

BoA let through just enough HAMP modifications to avert suspicion and allay congressional critics, while not enough to incur any substantial losses to its own bottom line, according to the complaint.

“In other words, BoA has had it both ways. BoA has continued to maximize the value of its mortgage portfolio with anti-HAMP modification practices and managed to make money by committing fraud on homeowner,” the lawsuit said.

    Patricia Warmhold : it’s been eight years and they have been causing the most excruciating painful stress one can imagine, the physical sufferings brought on by the deliberate injustice of the justice system is someone no one can begin to imagine: I always I could cope with everything and anything – nothing is impossible if you approach it with determination: Not true: this stress is practically killing me, it’s debilitating, it’s numbing, it’s excruciating, it hurts: but they’re still at it (the attorneys for the defense /lender/broker who forged my information- just to get more commission out of me: they forged my original reverse into a conventional- using “YIELD SHIELD PREMIUMS” three times more than they would for white people- I am a minority senior citizen from a third world country and I now understand what the meaning of being abused by the system really means- it’s now eight years – six years: NO ONE CAN COPE WITH INJUSTICE- this is the injustice of our justice system: to agree with one of the world most complained about lenders as being home stealers, fraudsters, you name it they did it to me…they lied, they falsified my reverse mortgage information they inflated my income to more than $5,000.00 a month…they bogused the value of my house to more than $200,000.00 they have done outrageous things to me in order to lie and convince the judge to grant them the last word: they are lying in court, they lied in all the pages of the documents which they forged – they even forged the HUD STATEMENT- in every page they forged the original information I gave them and they refused to give me copies that day- THIS IS WHAT THEY DID TO ME:

    How do I get in on the lawsuit?

    • Kelly C. says:

      I also want to get in on this lawsuit. I live in Denver and I have full written phone records –names, dates, conversation details — of every call I made to BofA from Spring of 2011 till this week (37 pages single spaced). I have records of which documents were sent when. And, I also have emails specifically asking my CRM about many of the delay tactics which were being used. I CC’ed of the emails to a third party as well to make sure they can be used in court (no privacy issue).

      I am still fighting the good fight against Bank of America

    Excellent that this has been unsealed – and thank you for posting this!!

    Really…in agreement with others here – it just floors me that with all of the evidence of outright fraud at an extreme level — no one has been punished. The banks rule – they can do as they please without fear of punishment.

    I am sick to death of the corruption.

  5. No Way! I broke this story on March 3rd way before Reuters!

  6. The problem: the Gov just triple the incentives to banks for HAMP without any teeth (again) so what that means is that B o A is going to keep DEFRAUDING HAMP and the homeowners but will be receiving the triple $$$ in incentives WTF??

    Who knew!!! The average dead beat homeowner knew this all along. And it is coming out now what BoA is doing and it is my guess that other banks are doing the same thing also. Unbelievable.
