Obama/Schneiderman Mortgage Fraud Task Force has “no office, no phones, no staff and no executive director”

Obama’s mortgage unit is AWOL

Schneiderman should quit this fraud

On March 9 — 45 days after the speech and 30 days after the announcement — we met with Schneiderman in New York City and asked him for an update. He had just returned from Washington, where he had been personally looking for office space. As of that date, he had no office, no phones, no staff and no executive director. None of the 55 staff members promised by Holder had materialized. On April 2, we bumped into Schneiderman on a train leaving Washington for New York and learned that the situation was the same.

Tuesday, calls to the Justice Department’s switchboard requesting to be connected with the working group produced the answer, “I really don’t know where to send you.” After being transferred to the attorney general’s office and asking for a phone number for the working group, the answer was, “I’m not aware of one.”

The promises of the President have led to little or no concrete action.

In fact, the new Residential Mortgage-Backed Securities Working Group was the sixth such entity formed since the start of the financial crisis in 2009. The grand total of staff working for all of the previous five groups was one, according to a surprised Schneiderman. In Washington, where staffs grow like cherry blossoms, this is a remarkable occurrence.

We are led to conclude that Donovan was right. The settlement and working group — taken together — were a coup: a public relations coup for the White House and the banks. The media hailed the resolution for a few days and then turned their attention to other topics and controversies.

    Hey, we know exactly where they are. They’ve been playing poker with us in our basement and watching porn.

    Signed,
    Mafia
    That agency that is supposed to oversee securities and exchanges
    and
    That service that is allegedly Secret

    I’d be interested to know if Schneiderman has been actively trying to get this office set up. My guess is no because I think he sold us all out. Surprise, surprise.

    I can attest to the fact that when you call the Governor’s office or Attorney’s General Office NOONE knew anything about the Mortgage help announced by the President. After being transferred 5 times I ended up with a gentleman who stated he was a Mortgage Banking Expert. I explained what was happening to me with my Mortgage Company, Eastern Savings Bank, Huntsville, Maryland. I explained that I have lived in my home 35 years and that I have Multiple Sclerosis and that the mortgage was filled with Fraud. I wanted to know if the programs were available. That I needed help. He said “hold on I have to speak to my Supervisor”, he came back and said “No we cannot help you I would suggest you get an attorney.”
    I also mentioned that when Andrew Cuomo was the Attorney General I had written to him and explained my situation. I had received a letter from Andrew Cuomo saying he would be willing to help modify my loan with Eastern. I called them back, SO EXCITED, even if I didn’t want to let them get away with Fraud maybe I could get a livable Mortgage. Noone knew anything about it. I called all the way up to and after Andrew Cuomo became the Governor. I once again said that I had received this letter, the secretary put me on hold and came back to and said “the Governor would like you to fax over a copy of the letter’ I had received. Now I think well I’m getting somewhere. But I never heard back and I could never reach anyone that could help me. I went and visited one of the NYS Mobile Units to help people in Foreclosure. They asked me to fill out a form with my address and my story. After the young man who was helping me read my story, he said excuse me I have to go show this to my Supervisor. He never came back and sent a gentleman with a broken accent who said we cannot help you. You should get an attorney.
    SO DON’T MENTION THAT YOU CAN PROVE FRAUD. DON’T ASK THEM TO INVESTIGATE. BECAUSE THEY WILL TELL YOU “CAN’T HELP YOU GET LAWYER” REALLY A SHAME!

        Excellent Penni and well said! I’m afraid that all this news, over and over and over again has done just what you mentioned – desensitized! And then the media pouting this great conquer of the Foreclosure Fraud Settlement seems to be the finale for most and so they set all other crimminal activity that is going on aside. We all just need to keep up the pressure and do as you have enlisted in your posting!

    What part of no office no personnel doesn’t sound like MERS

    No one should be surprised.

    The intents of this alleged Mortgage Fraud Task Force was to time the announcement to relieve pressure on Obama, to garner maximum positive PR and spin, and to cause most Americans to put the issue out of mind (Oh, now we have a task force so I don’t have to think about it anymore).

    It was a masterful move and has achieved ALL of its intended effects.

    It is tragic that protection of homeowner citizens, and prosecution of criminals, was not included among them.

    Vote Robamney in 2012!

    • Penni says:

      I’m writing Nader in AGAIN like every election for the past 20 years…I have NEVER REGRETTED voting for a man who has spent his ENTIRE LIFE WORKING FOR US.

      • Bobbi Swann says:

        What about Paul? Who has also worked for the people well over 20 years! People forget that he may not be the most ‘presentable’ on camera; doesn’t wear the correct ‘attire’ but what are we voting for? An intelligent person who can run this country and abide by the US constitution or are we having a Mr. America contest? Really???? Romney is no better than Obama and yes, Stupendous Man, you have it nailed correctly with the name (Robamney)…just pass me the teleprompter!!!!

        See the video below on how to Vote for Ron Paul in the Republican Primaries, (if you need to change your registration to Independent or Republican, you can change it back to whatever you want after you vote for Ron Paul), after he is elected as the Republican candidate for President, we can support him in the General Election for President in 2012 .. that is the best chance for him to win because his voice can then be heard .. no more censorship by the media and hiding him from everybody .. if worse comes to worse and the Banksters keep his name off of the ballot in the general election, we may still have a chance to elect him if we write him in .. write his name .. Ron Paul .. it is our only hope. Vote for him as soon as you can .. see video below ..
