So yesterday I get an email from the Washington Post requesting some documents that Jeffrey Stephan signed in NON-Judicial states, since they are only halting their proceedings in 23 states, and sent some over…
This morning I get a “Thank You Again!” from the reporter over at the post with a link to their latest layer of the onion peel…
Next up request… Other withdrawals of Robo-Signer documents from GMAC. (hint, Jeffrey ain’t the only one)
It’s is funny that we have everything that they want…

Flawed foreclosure documents like those that led mortgage lender Ally Financial to halt evictions in 23 states this week are showing up in parts of the country previously thought to be unaffected, including the Washington area, according to attorneys and consumer advocates
Ally Financial has not called off evictions in the other 27 states or the District of Columbia, none of which require a court order to initiate a foreclosure. And yet in those places, distressed borrowers, on the brink of losing their homes, are finding flawed and forged documents in their files and scrambling to challenge foreclosure proceedings.
Joan Cavanagh, who lives near Cape Cod, in Massachusetts, a state not included in Ally Financial’s moratorium, is scheduled to be kicked out of her home in 30 days. Her documents were signed by Jeffrey Stephan, the Ally document processor who admitted that he approved 10,000 foreclosures a month but never read the files to see whether the proceedings were justified.
Until Ally’s announcement this week, she said she did not understand why her documents had so many inconsistencies. Her file, for instance, was notarized after Stephan signed it, although the notary was supposed to witness the signing.
She said she initially did not fight the foreclosure case but is now seeking a lawyer to file suit.
“Everything about the documents were suspect to me,” Cavanagh, 54, said.
Ally, the nation’s fourth-largest home mortgage lender, said on Monday that it would freeze evictions after discovering a “technical defect” in documents submitted for foreclosure proceedings. Attorneys for homeowners say Ally, formerly known as GMAC, was compelled to take such an extreme action because of Stephan’s admission, which was made in a sworn deposition.
The problems in the nation’s foreclosure system are much wider than those exposed at Ally. Court documents and interviews with lawyers and legal experts show that forged documents and faked signatures are common in foreclosure files while an overwhelmed legal system looks the other way.
In the 23 states where Ally froze evictions, the courts require the person signing off on foreclosures on behalf of a lender to have “personal knowledge” of the documents involved in the case, Ally spokesman James Olecki said Thursday. Once the company realized that its document signers did not, it had to replace the “defective affidavits” with new ones.
I am actually really curious how they just found someone with “PERSONAL KNOWLEDGE” on hudreds of thousands of affidavits filed with the courts, not to mention the hundreds of thousands of defective assignments of mortgage that have littered this country’s land records potentially destroying the titles to the homes they were used on…
If anyone knows who is doing the “replacement affidavits” please let me know so we can get notice out to depose them too!
And one last thing, why is it every time these fraudsters get caught breaking the law, all they do is pull whatever it is from the court file like it never happened? If you or I tried to pull this crap, we would be locked up in an instant…
Where are the criminal indictments!!!
