Posted on 04/16/2013 8:12:10 AM PDT by Altariel
A woman in Tualatin, Ore., is breathing a sigh of relief after a three-year battle to prove Wells Fargo had wrongfully moved to foreclose on her home, saying she had missed mortgage payments.
A judge ruled Wednesday that Wells Fargo failed to prove she was actually behind in her payments, which Delores Dingman, 80, attributes to the bank's simple "accounting errors."
"I just praise God for it all because I kept praying so many times about this, because I knew I had made the payments, but their accounting errors made it hard," she said.

Well, there ya go.
Wells Fargo is the worst.
I paid my insurance as part of my mortgage through Wells Fargo. When the tree fell on my house was when I found that they hadn’t been insuring me at all. They didn’t intend to pay me a damn thing until they discovered that I had every receipt since day one and they cut me a check big enough to pay for the damage and pay the final mortgage payments.
I would think the proper relief is to consider the loan paid in full.
I hope there’s more to this story. Like the original loan was aquired by WF forced by the Feds or the mortgage holder is a jerk etc.
Otherwise, she should sue WF for the hassle.
It should be the other way around- it should be the bank that had to prove something...
Removing someone from her home should be very difficuly ESPECIALLY if you are WRONG
Good for her. This smacks of elder abuse. She was able to prove she made the payments. How much taxpayer $$$ went to Wachovia/Wells-Fargo in the bailout? Banks/Bankers and their lawyers are on the bottom of my list.
Glad to hear you got your damage paid for and your mortgage paid off.
I hope Freepers will consider refinancing with another bank or credit union if they currently have a mortgage through Wells Fargo.
They put auction signs on our fence the day before Thanksgiving and Christmas week of 2010. We had to come up with an additional five grand to get the wolves off our throat. It was extortion. Pure and simple. And this legal system of ours doesn't work for crap.
Hell has a special spot for these corporate beasts, their media, and their political enablers.
Wells needs a good kick in the nuts.
More fuel for my theory that this country is eventually going to elect Hitler 2.0 on a promise to start sending bankers to Leavenworth.
The question now is which WF employee’s brother in law got his house paid off with her payments.
I was in charge of a youth group that used WF. When the other adult leader died, I tried to get them to delete her from the account and update it to my name and the kid leaders. Even though some at the branch bank had gone to the decesed person’s funeral, they demanded she come in in person and change the account. What?!? I pointed out she couldn’t possibly do that and that her name wasn’t on the account because they’d refused to update the officers’ names over many years. Then they wanted all my information including my house put up as collateral - I DON’T THINK SO! - for a small kid organization account. I finally told them where they could get off and demanded to see the signature card. Turns out no one on the signature card had been in the organization for years so WF had been cashing checks without authorized signatures for forever. They flat out refused to let me close the account, not even restart it as if it were a new account. I finally walked up to the teller’s window and wrote a check with my signature for the entire amount. They cashed it. I drove down to the next bank and started a new account with no problems.
Thankfully, she fought back.
How many others could not afford to do so or lacked the will to do so?
