“I saw the exact same robo-signed documents from a decade ago, plus I saw they did something else which was criminal,” said attorney Bruce Jacobs.
Elderly Miami woman claims bank used forged documents to foreclose on her home
MIAMI – An 82-year-old South Florida woman is continuing to fight foreclosure.
A final 24-hour eviction notice was placed on Ana Rodriguez’s door on Sunday. She is a former Cuban political prisoner.
“When I saw the eviction, I feel it was so cruel to do that in this day,” Rodriguez said during a press conference on Sunday.
Her attorney said the bank foreclosed on her home using forged documents, and that she isn’t the only person being victimized.
Her home is in the City of Miami, near the border for Coral Gables.
Rodriguez purchased her home two decades ago and refinanced her mortgage in 2006, which was later bought by the bank, a company the U.S. Justice Department sued for billions in the past over mortgage fraud.
Her attorneys with Jacobs Legal, who are providing service pro bono, claim they have uncovered a scheme to defraud the woman out of her property, with forged promissory notes and other documents.
