  • Foreclosure 'robo-signers' appear to be widespread

    Palm Beach Post ^ | 111210 | Kimberly Miller
    Florida foreclosure law firms were using the same "robo-signer"-type practices to repossess homes that tripped up the nation's major lenders, a signal, defense attorneys argue, that should lead to a larger foreclosure moratorium. Banks that have not pulled back on foreclosure sales and evictions, such as lender CitiMortgage, gave firms power of attorney to sign documents on their behalf. In turn, some firms created assembly-line signing systems to keep up with bank deadlines on foreclosure cases.

    I'm getting tired of this, so I'm going to trot out the proof and stick it under everyone's nose. We keep hearing that these "lost document" affidavits and similar are just "sloppiness." They are not. They are hard evidence of fraud, with the only decision left to be made being one on exactly where the fraud happened. I'm going to show you a document - a Pooling and Servicing Agreement - from one MBS Trust. There are literally thousands just like this. I've read dozens. Those that were sold to the public are all filed on the SEC's web page,...

    COLLECTIVISM The Fabian Society began in England in 1887 by a very small group of elitist socialist that sought to reform society gradually into one of socialism instead of through violent revolution. At first their purpose was to be an alternative in Britain for the more dominate Marxist Social-Democratic Federation, but their true goal was to accomplish socialism through a very gradual process using the voting booth and representative democracy as their instrument of change. In fact, one of their symbols is a Turtle with the motto: "When I Strike, I Strike Hard". Another symbol is the Wolf in Sheep's...
  • J.P. Morgan Chase to freeze foreclosures over flawed paperwork[At least 56K Mortgages]

    The Washington Post ^ | 29 Sep 2010 | Ariana Eunjung Cha
    J.P. Morgan Chase, one of the nation's leading banks, announced Wednesday that it will freeze foreclosures in about half the country because of flawed paperwork, a move that Wall Street analysts said will pressure the rest of the industry to follow suit. The bank's decision will affect 56,000 borrowers in 23 states where allegations of forged documents and signatures and other similar problems are being used to try to overturn court-ordered evictions. Yet the impact may be much broader, given J.P. Morgan's stature in the industry. If other banks adopt the same approach, the foreclosure process in many parts of...

    Former Washington Mutual Chief Executive Kerry Killinger on Tuesday said regulators unfairly seized the Seattle-based thrift in September 2008 and sold it to JPMorgan Chase for a bargain price of $1.9 billion. In prepared testimony before the Senate Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations, Killinger said that, while the company suffered from rising loan losses, it was working its way through the financial crisis. Killinger, who was paid more than $100 million between 2003 and 2008, was forced out in 2008. The subcommittee is holding the first of four hearings on the causes and consequences of the financial crisis. Killinger and other...

    Chase plans to eliminate by the first quarter of next year a common industry practice that enraged many consumers. Instead of lumping a day’s worth of debit card and A.T.M. transactions together and then processing the highest amounts first — a practice that has caused large numbers of consumers to overdraw more quickly and pay more fees — it will credit the transactions chronologically. Chase also plans to allow customers to opt out of overdraft coverage. Consumers who overdraw often do not realize that overdraft coverage is automatic and that the bank will not simply cut them off when their...

    A Minneapolis K9 died after falling off the roof of a three-story building, during a possible burglary call. Police say officers were called to the 200-block of Hennepin Avenue South for a suspected burglary in progress, just after 7 a.m. Monday. The K9, named Chase, was called in to assist after police found evidence that the suspect was possibly still in the building. Chase and his handler, Officer Eric Lukes, were searching the roof when the dog fell and sustained grave injuries. "While Chase was running over to the edge, he leapt over the side of the wall and fell...

    JPMorgan’s profit beat expectations in the third quarter, with investment banking operations posting strong gains, the company said Wednesday. But the company warned that credit costs remained high. The bank earned 82 cents a share in the third quarter, up from 9 cents a share in the same quarter a year ago. That was much higher than the 52 cents a share analysts surveyed by Thomson predicted. JP Morgan shares rose more than 3 percent in pre-market trading. Tier 1 common capital at JPMorgan [JPM 45.66 -0.42 (-0.91%) ] was also strengthened through capital generation during the quarter, up 8.2...

    J.P. Morgan Chase & Co. said third-quarter earnings soared, beating analysts' expectations, as the banking giant was carried again by strong investment-banking results. They more than offset by continued increases in credit costs, which Chairman and Chief Executive Jamie Dimon said will remain elevated "for the foreseeable future" in its consumer and credit-card operations. Jamie Dimon .Shares rose 3.3% premarket to $47.15. J.P.

    Corporations that have given ACORN millions of dollars over the years are now cancelling their donations in the wake of videotape revelations of employees of the infamous community organizing giving advice on mortgage fraud, tax evasion, prostitution, and child sex slavery. Bank of America is reviewing its grant program, while Citigroup is waiting for the results of on-going investigations. JP Morgan Chase had previously ended its relationship with ACORN. Bank of America donated 28 grants totaling almost $3 million to ACORN Housing Corporation (AHC), since 2005, financial records show. A company spokesman said the activity exposed on videotape prompted the...

    JP Morgan Chase has been challenged to sever its financial support for ACORN. As more video tapes are released of ACORN workers discussing illicit financial schemes, the bank has been called out for funding activities in violation of its own polices. Peter Flaherty, president of the National Legal and Policy Center (NLPC), in a letter addressed to JP Morgan Chase CEO Jamie Dimon, warns that continued support could jeopardize the institution’s credibility. “Continued identification with ACORN harms the company’s brand name and reputation, and carries special risks for this company, a recipient of taxpayer TARP funds,” he wrote. “The New...

    This bill passed in 1999. Essentially the bill broke down the proverbial wall between a commercial bank and an investment bank. As such, there was no longer a separation. The example I use is that Merrill Lynch and Paine Webber were now able to provide checking accounts. Even today, Etrade has checking accounts. This is the mundane and reasonable part of the bill. The more sophisticated part was that bank could get into investing. Banks could get into loan securitization. All sorts of financial business could be done by the exact same institution. This lead to the second dynamic.

    That's the supposition from this WAPO article. Today, the biggest of those banks are even bigger. The crisis may be turning out very well for many of the behemoths that dominate U.S. finance. A series of federally arranged mergers safely landed troubled banks on the decks of more stable firms. And it allowed the survivors to emerge from the turmoil with strengthened market positions, giving them even greater control over consumer lending and more potential to profit.

    A new order is emerging on Wall Street after the worst crisis since the Great Depression — one in which just a couple of victors are starting to tower over the handful of financial titans that used to dominate the industry. On Thursday, JPMorgan Chase became the latest big bank to announce stellar second-quarter earnings. Its $2.7 billion profit, after record gains for Goldman Sachs, underscores how the government’s effort to halt a collapse has also set the stage for a narrowing concentration of financial power. “One theme here is that Goldman Sachs and JPMorgan really have emerged as the...

The van, owned by Donut Delite, of Moline, Ill., was stolen early Thursday while the driver was making deliveries at a hospital in nearby Rock Island.

    THIS plucky pensioner led police on a low-speed chase around Middlesbrough [UK] - and then gave officers the slip. The lukewarm pursuit started after he caused traffic chaos by crawling down the fast lane of a busy dual carriageway.Police asked the stubborn senior citizen to pull over. But he defiantly cranked his battery-powered mobility scooter up to its top speed - 8mph - and somehow managed to escape their attention. Engineer, Ian Hardy, from Darlington said he couldn’t believe his eyes as he watched the chase unfold on the A1032 Newport Bridge Approach Road on Monday afternoon. “It was just...

    PORT ST. JOHN, Fla. -- A machete-wielding man chased off three young men from a wooded lot near his house Thursday, trapping one of them up a tree before sheriff’s deputies arrived. Luke Weinstein said he stepped outside his house on Kings Highway to have his first cigarette of the day when he spotted the men lurking in the shrubs of a vacant lot across the street. He yelled at them and started after them, then ran back into his garage to grab his machete. Wearing nothing but a pair of black shorts, a barefooted Weinstein chased the trio into...

    DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. -- Staying within 400 points of the lead no longer will be a factor to get in the Chase for the Nextel Cup. A source close to NASCAR said the governing body is finalizing a plan that will allow the top 12 in points in the 10-race playoff with no provision for how many points a driver is from the lead. The top 10 and anybody within 400 points after 26 races qualified for the playoff during the first three years of the Chase. But because the 400-point margin hasn't been a factor -- seven or fewer...

    Scores of criminals might have eluded immediate capture had a controversial new plan to limit Houston police vehicle chases been in effect in the past 18 months, department records show. Police Chief Harold Hurtt's proposal, set for a hearing Monday at City Hall, would restrict his officers from engaging in lengthy pursuits when a fleeing motorist's only known crime is a Class C misdemeanor, such as a traffic violation. That was the reason officers gave for almost half the chases recorded in the past year and a half. Yet when those chases ended and suspects were questioned, 40 percent said...

    Suspect expected a 'free pass' from officers Deputies say he mistakenly thought HPD's no-chase policy would let him flee A driver trying to evade authorities thought a recent change in the Houston Police Department's chase policy would help him get away, authorities said. But he was running from a different agency. Regardless, the controversial HPD policy restricting when officers can chase fleeing suspects has been put on hold. "I think this is an absolute perfect example of the mind-sets that are out there," warned Hans Marticiuc, president of the Houston Police Officers' Union, a vocal opponent of the proposed policy...
