As ‘Fraudclosure’ Continues, County Clerks (NOT SHARON BOCK) Take Up Cudgel

As ‘Fraudclosure’ Continues, County Clerks Take Up Cudgel

Visit the office of John O’Brien, register of deeds in South Essex County, Massachusetts, and he’ll eagerly show you stacks and stacks of documents. He calls it a crime scene.

Why? These documents, a plethora of mortgage-related assignments, were used as legal justification for evicting millions of families from their homes through a deeply flawed foreclosure process, enabled by the Mortgage Electronic Registration Systems industry consortium. There’s nothing that gets O’Brien’s Irish up more than a discussion of the rampant fraud he sees perpetrated on the court.

“In America we don’t taken someone’s home away with fraud,” he says with a South Boston swagger and no-nonsense boom to his voice. “There was a Profiles in Courage moment for the administration when the five banks were brought to the table to answer for the robo-signing scandal, and they let it pass.”

Rest here…

    Does the Crime scene include the court?

    Our Supreme court is about to find MERS unqualified fo foreclose on anything.

      @Ron Moss,

      Which Supreme court? Your state or the US Supreme court?

      In California, MERS is not supposed to do any foreclosures in it’s own name because they are in a ‘suspended’ status with the state. They initially had failed to even register, then when they did register, they did not pay the back fees. When a business is in a ‘suspended’ status, they are not able to bring suit in court.

      That does not seem to prevent the attempts to use the non-judicial route to foreclose.

      Anyone who is fighting a foreclosure action that is in MERS’ name in other states should review the Nebraska court case. Then they should review the supposed ‘policy’ statements within the MERS website.

        Ron, in our supreme courts here in California they are not working any case regarding MERS, letting people lose their homes. Do you have any cases in Santa Ana california that have won on this stance? I think it is imperitive to get this information out. Bank of America just did a huge overhaul and now has SOS servicing loans!! NOT GOOD!! This adds more idiots to the mix as SOS is terrible to work with, I see many foreclosures coming down the pike again with this move. What do you think? Please help if you have cases that can be used by others. I had to fight an illegal eviction/foreclosure already this year, one done by the second note holder when I WAS PAYING AND ON TIME!! Got that taken care of a little, the investor is reversing the foreclosure but I’m still suing the servicer, Val Chris Investments for fraud. I found fraud in the eviction when the attorney helping me found a case with the state bar where the process server stated, under oath, that he does not even go out to the properties they just use his name and sign it! AND THEY ARE STILL USING HIS NAME AND EVICTING PEOPLE DUE TO THIS MAN!! What the heck? I have tried to get people in the court, the news and other agencies to listen and get this known to help others but no one will do ANYTHING!! Would like to hear more from you! Thank you!
