This could be bad…
Back in August I published this report that Linda Green did not have signing authority on behalf of (MERS).
Now the interesting thing is it wasn’t a “deadbeat homeowner”, a “loose cannon consumer advocate” or a “sleazy foreclosure defense attorney” making the claim.
IT CAME FROM FORECLOSURE MILL SHAPIRO AND FISHMAN!

Got that? “Linda Green, Vice President who at the time did not have signing authority on behalf of (MERS)

Action Date: August 26, 2010
Location: Fort Lauderdale, FL
On August 11, 2010, the Florida foreclosure mill law firm of Shapiro & Fishman (S&F) filed a “corrective” mortgage assignment (copy available in the “Pleadings” section herein). According to S & F, this “corrective” assignment was necessary because previous assignments filed by S & F were signed by Linda Green “who at that time did not have signing authority on behalf of MERS.” The day before, on August 10, 2010, the Florida Attorney General’s office issued a press release identifying S & F as one of the Florida law firms under investigation for unfair & deceptive trade practices involving improper documentation used to speed foreclosure proceedings. When Linda Green signed the prior assignments as a MERS officer, she was actually employed by Lender Processing Services in its Alpharetta, Georgia offices. Lender Processing Services decides which law firms get assigned foreclosure cases by the banks in hundreds of thousands of cases. Lender Processing Services hires the law firms and provides these firms with the documents they might need – using its own employees to sign the documents – without authority from MERS. The “corrective” assignment was signed by Kathy Smith and Joseph Kaminski who were identified as Assistant Secretaries of MERS, as nominee for American Brokers Conduit ( a company in bankruptcy since 2007). Smith & Kaminski are not actually employed by MERS or by American Brokers Conduit – so S&H may need another “corrective assignment.” The original assignment was dated October 17, 2008 – over two weeks AFTER the Lis Pendens was filed, but the “corrective” assignment attempts to solve the obvious lack of standing by a provision that states that the actual delivery of the documents took place on an unspecified date “and that such delivery of documents had occurred before default and before the filing to the lis pendens…” Courts and homeowners can expect a few more corrections from Shapiro & Fishman.
Everyone remember Linda Green?
Here are some reminders if you don’t…
LINK – ENOUGH IS ENOUGH! Docx Assignment of Mortgage – Bogus Assignee for Intervening Asmts ALL OVER THE PUBLIC RECORDS!
Well, it looks like that Linda Green DID NOT HAVE AUTHORITY TO TRANSFER ASSETS!
How much you want to bet that NO ONE at Docx had AUTHORITY TO TRANSFER ASSETS!
Hell, how much you want to bet that most of these so called “Vice Presidents” had any authority!
Are all of these foreclosures VOID due to fraud?
This is going to get most interesting…
And definitely, CHALLENGE EVERYTHING!
Well, the assignment of mortgage in question, dated October 17th 2008, was executed by Linda Green WHO AT THE TIME DID NOT HAVE SIGNING AUTHORITY ON BEHALF OF MERS.
According to Shapiro and Fishman’s “Corrective Assignment”
Now there is this…
Looks Like Linda Green did not have authority to sign in September 2009 either…

Action Date: September 29, 2010
Location: West Palm Beach, FL
On September 29, 2010, another “Corrective Assignment” came to light, filed by the Florida law firm of Shapiro & Fishman. Like the first Corrective Assignment, a statement appears in bold that the new Assignment was filed because Linda Green, now infamous robo-signer from Lender Processing Services in Fulton County, GA, did not have authority to sign as an officer of Mortgage Electronic Registration Systems (MERS) when she signed the first Assignment. This document states that Green did not have such authority on September 1, 2009. The prior correction stated she did not have such authority on October 17, 2008. It is not a giant leap to assume that Green did not have authority to sign for nearly a year. If Green, like the other robo-signers, executed 15,000 documents a month, for 12 months, there are 180,000 “erroneous” assignments, many of which were used to push through foreclosures by securitized trusts – the entities most often using Green-signed documents. It is one thing to quietly file a “Corrective Assignment” in the vast official records of various counties. It is quite another to notify homeowners, former homeowners and courts that a fraudulent or erroneous document has been used to foreclose. On most of these Assignments, not only Green’s authority as a MERS officer, but also the date that the trusts actually acquired the mortgages, appear to have been wrongly stated. Shapiro & Fishman is one of the Florida law firms under investigation by the Florida Attorney General for using suspect documents in foreclosures. Lender Processing Services, Green’s employer, is also under investigation by various law enforcement agencies. Shapiro & Fishman, however, appears to be the only firm filing Corrective Assignments though at least eight other Florida law firms (as well as law firms across the United States) used the Linda Green/MERS Assignments to establish ownership of mortgages and the right to foreclose. It is expected that Attorneys General of other states will follow the lead of the Florida Attorney General and require the leading foreclosure law firms to examine their documents and begin the massive undertaking of correcting past mistakes.
Guess who else signs assignments of mortgage en masse…
Yep, Jeffrey Stephan and Beth Cottrell, among many others.

This sure is getting interesting…
