Florida’s Capital really is one of the prettiest buildings in this state. Set on a huge hill, you can see it for miles around when you come driving in from any direction. The response to calls for action from attorneys and homeowners who are coming to Tallahassee on Wednesday, April 21, 2010 has been phenomenal. Given our great success this week, we’re all meeting in Tallahassee with a very good message to share…
FLORIDIANS ♥ JUDGES!
God knows we might not always agree with our judges (and from an entirely personal perspective sometimes they can lay into you like a strict and angry parent), but the bottom line is if a Floridian’s home is going to be taken from them, we want to make sure an elected judge executes that powerful order. We want our judges and courthouses respected. That means funding them properly so they and their staff have the time and resources to examine cases and issues carefully. We trust our judges to be responsive to this crisis and we want our legislators to give them the tools and the respect they need to craft the solutions. We are also proud and grateful to the legislators because:
FLORIDA LEGISLATORS CARE ABOUT HOMEOWNERS
FLORIDA LEGISLATORS LISTEN TO THEIR CONSTITUENTS
FLORIDA LEGISLATORS ARE COMMITTED TO FINDING FAIR AND HONEST SOLUTIONS TO THE FORECLOSURE CRISIS
We will meet at 9:00 a.m. on the First Floor of the Capital, called the Plaza Level, just inside the doors between the chambers of the Florida House and Florida Senate right around the Great Seal of the State of Florida, shown below:
What Can You Expect in Tallahassee?
Expect to be blown away. If you’ve never been to the Capital while legislature is in session, you cannot imagine how exciting and alive the place is. Remember all the energy and enthusiasm of college pep rallys, Superbowl or World Series, multiply it ten times, then add to it the fact that this is all very, very serious business. Billions of dollars are at stake and changes that affect Floridians forever are made every session.
Most times during session, the legislators are the stars, but when real people come up and do fulfill their obligations as citizens, NORMAL EVERYDAY FOLKS BECOME THE STARS! After we meet at the Great Seal at 9:00 a.m. we will travel to the Fourth Floor which is the “lobby” area between both chambers (now you know why they call it “lobbying”)…you’ll have a directory showing the floor and office number of your legislators and will fan out go to their offices. They often won’t be in their offices, but you walk in, introduce yourself then take about two minutes to make your case to whomever is there. If you’re lucky your representative will be there, if not take a few minutes to talk with staff….keep in mind that staff are very influential….even if your elected representative is not there….staff members are just as critical. Write up your story and the reasons you’ve come to Tallahassee and hand them to staff/reporters/legislators.
You can and should be prepared to make your point and move on in a few short moments….you may not convince whomever you’re talking to on the spot, but they will hear your message and respect you for understanding their time commitments and the stress they are under. Remember, it feels like most legislators are on our side now, so please be very courteous and very grateful to them for listening to you so far….make a commitment to support them back in the district. Ask to be put on their volunteer contact list so that they can call on you when they need help or attendance back in the district.
It will be a whirlwind, but after a few hours of walking the halls, you’ll want to sit in the public galleries of both the house and senate side to watch all the action taking place. At some point during the day some discussion regarding foreclosure legislation will be taken up. Hopefully these bad bills will be killed and what will happen is members from both houses will take official notice of the hundreds, (thousands?) of their constituents who are in the galleries…they will recognize you, commend you taking time to come up and support them and the process and they will make honest commitments to work with all of us after session ends to figure a way out of this mess.
At some point in time, make sure you go to the top of the Capital and see the view from high above….as I said The Capital is set on a hill and the view from up there is just amazing. Take it all in, look around…maybe stay over a night and take more of it in….there’s certainly lots of very interesting stuff to see.
Whatever your background, attorney, advocate, curious bystander…you will leave changed…probably inspired and hopeful~
See the links below for some examples from the last 60 DAYS of the fraudulent activities that are being perpetrated every day…
There is much more if you research this blog. Enjoy…
“I don’t have any confidence that any of the documents the Court’s receiving on these mass foreclosures are valid,” the judge said at the hearing…
“There was a different plaintiff pursuing a foreclosure proceeding on the same note and mortgage as the one that was being proceeded on. Both of the cases contained allegations in the original complaints that the separate plaintiffs were owners and holders of the note. Both of them had gone so far to have affidavits filed in support of a summary judgment whereby an individual represented to the court in the affidavit that the separate plaintiffs had possessed the note and had lost the note while it was in their possession.”
Mortgage Assignment Fraud – David Sterns Office Commits Fraud on The Court – Case Dismissed WITH Prejudice
“the Assignment of Mortgage was created after the filing of this action, but the document date and notarial date were purposely backdated by the Plaintiff”
The Assignment, as an instrument of fraud in this Court… was made to appear as though it was created and notorized on December 5, 2007. However, that purported creation/notarization date was facially impossible:
the notary stamp used on this instrument did not even exist until approximately five months after the purported date on the Assignment.
Wells Fargo Motion for Judgment of Foreclosure and Sale for the Premises is DENIED WITH PREJUDICE Complaint is Dismissed
“Plaintiff’s counsel never notified the Court that the mortgage had been satisfied and failed to discontinue the instant action with prejudice.”
“Plaintiff’s counsel, Peter G. Zavatsky, Esq., and his firm, Zavatsky, Mendelsohn & Levy, LLP, will be given an opportunity to be heard as to why this Court should not sanction them for making a “frivolous motion,”
Defendants move to disqualify JOHN A. WATSON from continuing to appear in this case as their counsel and for the disgorgement of the $1,000 paid to WATSON in attorney’s fees on the following grounds…
JOHN WATSON Has A Conflict of Interest in that He—Through the Firm With Which He is Associated—Represents the Plaintiff, AURORA LOAN SERVICES LLC in Other Cases…
he actually appears in court on behalf of the Plaintiff in this case, AURORA LOAN SERVICES LLC…
The “relative” to whom JOHN WATSON referred is his brother, Marshall C. Watson, the principal of the Law Offices of Marshall C. Watson, P.A. (the “MARSHALL WATSON FIRM”), a law firm “which strictly represents mortgage lenders and servicers throughout Florida”…
On Tuesday, my husband was working on his truck. A guy came over to him, I think, and shook his hand and said, ‘Hi, I just bought this house.’ [My husband was] thinking to himself, ‘Yeah right, you’re joking,”
“He had the paperwork in his hand and I said, ‘Oh my gosh!’ So sat down, got Bank of America on the phone right away, verified, not delinquent, but didn’t say there was a mistake,” recalled Achaibar.
The Achaibars’ Bank of America mortgage statement showed their monthly payments had been paid on time.
“They sold my house overnight and they need to fix this fast,”
Chase has filed documents that appear to be either patently false or misleading
an assignment showed that Chase held the Mortgage and was assigning that Mortgage to Deutsche. Not only was the assignment dated post-petition, but it was signed only a few days before Chase filed the Motion For Stay Relief.
This is not the first time that Chase’s conduct with regard to motions for relief from the stay has been questioned in a bankruptcy case..
The prosecutors are “reviewing the business processes” of the subsidiary of Lender Processing Services Inc., based in Jacksonville, Fla., according to the company’s annual securities filing released in February. People familiar with the matter say the probe is criminal in nature.

Scandalous – Substantiated Allegations of Foreclosure Fraud That Implicates the Florida Attorney General’s Office and The Florida Default Law Group
The notary who allegedly administered the expert’s oath and vouched for her signature was Erin Cullaro, a former employee of FDLG and now an Assistant Attorney General in the Economic Crimes Division of the Office of the Attorney General.
Defendants proffer that they will show affidavits executed on days other than those approved by the Office of the Attorney General and that travel records suggest that Ms. Cullaro would have not been present in Florida on the date and time that an affidavit was notarized.
Here are the signatures to compare…
many firms file lost note counts… because the physical document was deliberately eliminated
Mortgage foreclosure cases are unique in that the holders of the notes are often unfamiliar with the status of the loans
while the holder of the note may verify that it is the holder of the note, it may not have personal knowledge when the last payment on the note was made or if a default notice was mailed to the client
wrongly repossessed her home, padlocked the doors, shut off the utilities, damaged the furniture and confiscated a pet parrot, though her mortgage payments were on time.
The complaint essentially alleges that the “industry practice” of creating assignments of mortgages after the actual date on which a loan was transferred from one beneficial owner to another is unlawful. The complaint also challenges the authority of individuals employed by our document solutions subsidiary to execute such assignments as officers of various banks and mortgage companies…
Recently, during an internal review of the business processes used by our document solutions subsidiary, we identified a business process that caused an error in the notarization of certain documents, some of which were used in foreclosure proceedings in various jurisdictions around the country…
Most recently, we have learned that the U.S. Attorney’s office for the Middle District of Florida is reviewing the business processes of this subsidiary. We have expressed our willingness to fully cooperate with the U.S. Attorney.
