Palm Beach County Residents Expose Foreclosure Fraud
PALM BEACH COUNTY, Fla. — Two locally founded websites are helping homeowners facing foreclosure. They are also exposing fraud.
Palm Beach County resident Michael Redman founded 4closurefraud.org to keep track of Florida’s ongoing foreclosure process. He started it in September of 2009 when a relative went into foreclosure.
Lake Worth resident Lisa Epstein is facing foreclosure herself. She started Foreclosure Hamlet a similar website.
Both say they’ve uncovered a mountain of fraud being perpetrated by the banks.
“We’ve seen cases where law firms created their own evidence, default processors created own evidence and filed original notes in same case,” said Redman.
“I’m defending against a foreclosure that has been brought agasint me by a bank that I had no financial relationship with, never made a payment to trying to get some answers,” said Epstein.
Redman says from what he’s seen, in 90 percent of the cases there is questionable documentation.
