    A notary who was set to be sentenced for her part in a massive foreclosure fraud investigation was found dead in her Las Vegas home Monday. Tracy Lawrence, 43, had pleaded guilty to one count of notarizing the signature of an individual not in her presence, a misdemeanor with a potential prison sentence of up to one year, as well as a fine of up to $2,000. Lawrence had pleaded guilty to participating in an alleged scheme being investigated by the Nevada attorney general’s office in which tens of thousands of fraudulent documents were filed between 2005 and 2008 with...

    He operates the largest foreclosure law firm in the state, and these hard times have made Mark P. Harmon a very busy man. Some critics assail his tactics, but Harmon is unapologetic: Lenders, after all, need zealous lawyers, too. Devenia Mack doesn’t know Mark P. Harmon personally, but the Newton lawyer is intimately involved in her housing crisis. His company, Harmon Law Offices, was hired by Wells Fargo Bank last year to seize Mack’s Westminster ranch house by foreclosure. His son, Andrew, signed the paperwork that transferred the mortgage to Wells Fargo. His title company stamped the document notifying Mack...

    At the end of last week's letter on the whole mortgage foreclosure mess, I wrote: "All those subprime and Alt-A mortgages written in the middle of the last decade? They were packaged and sold in securities. They have had huge losses. But those securities had representations and warranties about what was in them. And guess what, the investment banks may have stretched credibility about those warranties. There is the real probability that the investment banks that sold them are going to have to buy them back. We are talking the potential for multiple hundreds of billions of dollars in losses...
  • Were Obama's own mortgage documents signed by a 'robo-signer'?

    A consumer advocacy Web site has obtained some mortgage paperwork for President Obama and first lady Michelle Obama's home in Chicago. The documents, which show that the couple's mortgage of $210,000 was fully paid on May 10, 2005, are signed by a Chase Home Finance vice president Marshe Craine. The interesting thing about the documents is that Craine's signature on court documents related to other people's homes looks radically different from the version on the Obamas' paperwork. In other, unrelated cases, attorneys for homeowners have accused loan processing companies of allowing employees to forge other people's signatures.
